Kaba is faced with a Class Action Lawsuit over an expensive lock they sell. You can read more about it here. IMO the lawsuit is a bit frivolous. The bottom line is that this lawsuit is over Kaba’s expensive Simplex lock. This lock can easily be defeated by a magnet, BUT to defeat the lock you must have an extremely powerful rare Earth magnet and an understanding of how the lock works, and how to use the magnet to defeat the lock. Anyone with such knowledge and resources could Easley defeat any number of locks. We need to remember that no lock is a guarantee for security, but rather a deterrent, some better than others. If you have a Kaba Simplex lock and you are concerned about security just give us a call at (530) 514-0252 or log in at www.allaboutlocksandsafes.com and request a free security evaluation. We look forward to hearing from you.
