The Montara Handleset is only available with the lock and a dummy version is not available at this time. We recommend installing an active Montara Handleset without the latches on your inactive door.

Can you set the inside deadbolt to require a key as well?

Don't think so. You need to search or select "double cylinder" to look at products w both sides keyed. FYI not happy w my Kwikset products. Need to keep tightening. This one keeps locking even though bottom lock is not set.

Does this come with template to drill bottom hole for door handle fit on doors that don't have an existing hole?

Asked by DG January 25, 2021

Answers

It’s been a few years but I do not recall that it did however you can measure the distance from handle to door plug and if your door came with the plug already installed it is generally in the the correct spot for quickest. I hope this helps as this is the best I can tell you.

Yes, the Montara Handleset is not offered as a dummy model. A second active Montara handleset can be installed without the latches to serve as a dummy handleset.

Answer

The Montara Handleset keyed both sides handleset is model # 554MNH LIP, and the interior lever is model # 979LL LH for left-hand doors and # 979LL RH for right-hand doors. Using another single cylinder deadbolt will not convert the Montara deadbolt to a double-cylinder deadbolt.

Answers

From the interior side of the Juno knob, when the turn-piece is in the locked position (vertical), the lock remains locked. The turn-piece must be manually turned to the unlocked position (horizontal) to rotate the knob and open the door from the inside.

I have had trouble with the finish on my current door entry ( brushed nickel). Does this finish have a guarantee?

I bought this one because it did have two locking options, making it more secure if both are used. My other exterior doors use the same key and only have the deadbolt for locking, so I can still access my home if I lock myself out of the front door, as you describe. I also only use the deadbolt on the front door if I'm going to be away for an extended period.

Recently installed a brand new entry door and needed hardware. This set is perfect! The high gloss brass looks fabulous, the picture does not do it justice! See ours! What we liked is the design is exactly what we were looking for and makes the brand new door look even better. The feature that makes this handle set stand out the most is the ability to set the locks so you only need one key to work both of the locks! Even my installer asked, "did you buy a Kwikset"? This product more than exceed my expectations. And the ease of ordering is why we shop Home Depot.

While i am very happy with the look and how easy it was to install the reason i am giving it one star is that the turn knob to lock the top deadbold keeps popping out. I don't see any way to secure it or can explain why this is happening. I have read and re-read the instructions, even had my wife take a look at it thinking i missed some thing but that is not the case. Spent a lot of money on this thing only to have it be broken.

This is a great set that also gives you the ability to create the same key for 2 different handlesets. I would recommend.

Beautiful and well made. It really makes my new white door with sidelites with brass caming pop! It feels so upscale. My only problem is that the deadbolt lock seems to stick when turning the key. Not sure why. It eventually works, but not as smooth as the handle key lock. But, I love the look and the elegance of the handleset. The SmartKey feature was easy to rekey. That was great. Thank you for a very beautiful product. The shipping was fast and arrived just in time.
