Simplex Series locks arenít safe

There are locks out there of every kind; ones that require keys, card keys, and a certain combination of buttons to be pushed. If you look at the picture, youíve likely seen one of these very popular door locks. Made by Kaba-IIco, this Simplex Series lock was found to be extremely easy to break into. There is a pretty big lawsuit floating around because these locks can be opened with a very powerful magnet.

All of the locks excluding the Series 5000 model are vulnerable to this easy break-in. Pretty much anyone anywhere can get inside whatever is locked by this brand by using a powerful magnet. Seeing as this company is one of the largest lock-makers in the world, and itís locks go for $300-400 a piece, this lawsuit will likely cost a pretty penny. If you use one (or more) of these, you’ll want to keep an eye on this legal battle, and change your locks.
