i used to install them in post offices. the last place to do anything illegal. they have their own Police force.
Why tack on the unneccessary "I'm sure many were never replaced?" It honestly feels like this channel is nothing but information for immoral individuals, and then you go and tack that on. Plus the entire storefront you've got set up. It's not illegal, but adding on the extra info and selling the tools to get into certain locks is clearly showing your motivations.
take that part out easy fix
You know watching this video a couple years later? No, no it's not the worst lock design blunder ever. We've seen locks opened with red bull cans, orange juice bottles, lego men, and a twig. Two of those were gun locks! Hell, there's even multiple shotgun police cruiser locks opened with a magnet the same way. With the same magnet!
We used to open these type of locks easily at the VTA station next to Great America in California. Inside the light rail station was a bathroom for use of VTA drivers and if there was no train in the station it meant we could sneak a pee break.
Random comment for the YouTube algorithm.
ill share a story, my first day in the motor pool (fort bragg NC) and we have these on all our doors. i could never remember the code so i always waited for someone to come out to use the door. eventually i learned the code but from a normal standpoint it really wasnt guarding much. if it guarded other places i feel bad cause there was a lot of people who would put stuff in the door to keep it open so they didnt have to punch in the numbers. was a total hassle
I would love to see you do a Trilogy lock
Yikes, I worked in a US Military installation that had these on every door.
I thought the flaw was how the 2, 3 & 5 were all so worn, lol
Amazing how poorly designed it is.
Thank You for showing me how to get in a locked door
I use the same code on the lock - to prevent unexpected break-ins.
Thank you sir Ill be breaking into a place tonight.
We had one of these on the boathouse in highschool.. the code was changed weekly and it took me all of about 15 minutes to guess it each time.. that specific lock only allowed each button to be pushed once per combo and the guy who set it always made it a year so it always started with 19xx
The local Bank of America branch uses this lock in accessing the area of the cashiers. I talked to a supervisor and I was told in no uncertain language that they held my observation in contempt and they did not care if it represented a security issue or not.
So- when did you first start Licking Socks?
We had these where I was stationed. It was an MI facility.
Still safe from juggalos
Probably, when they designed this, there were no rare earth type neodymium magnets around to test it with, just regular soft iron ones.
I'm a maintenance tech in a hotel which uses Kaba door locks and I absolutely LOATHE their products. They are over-engineered and expensive to purchase and repair. I'll reserve my opinions about their tech support.
I used this video to get into school office and delete all my data amazing. Thanks
can you pick same lock with the issue fixed ???
You don't even need an Earth magnet. These things require a 3 digit combination that does not repeat digits so there are only 60 possible combinations for this sort of lock. I figured out how to hack these when I was 11 or 12.
and the black paint that wears down only makes it easier to guess which three numbers leaving you only to figure out which order to push them in.

I had one of these in my old neighborhood pool
Had a lock like one of these at a hospital where I used to work; policy was to change the code every month, so nobody every remembered it, so instead just told each other to tap it hard on one side while turning the handle and it would open without the code (and that was only if the porters hadn't just left it in the unlocked position on the other side to save them hassle when they had to make multiple trips). Not sure if it was a similar exploit to this, but it feels like it, probably just a less sturdy spring so hitting it was enough to move it?My conclusion from skimming through videos on this channel is that I'm going back to the good old method of a portculis, a sturdy door, a bar and someone on the other side who has to open all of it when I need in.
Why do you have a 1041 brain-box in a 1021 lock body?
A year after this video and people where I work still freak out when I demonstrate all our "secure facilities" are a magnet away from being "publicly accessible facilities". The old version of these locks are everywhere.
Why wouldn't they use Stainless Steel to start w just for nonrusting reasons ?
These were all over college campuses. I never knew why they bothered to put them on in the first place, since there's less than 32 combinations. You can't press a number more than once, and you're limited to 3-digit codes. That puts it somewhere around 24 combinations. Teachers would be late to the classroom, and I'd let everyone in and get some really nasty stares.
Awesome! I used to do same thing at a job in my early 20s, if the boss was late I'd let everyone in so we could get started .
Anyone got a rare earth magnet laying about? 🧲Asking for a friend..
the bathroom at our local walgreens lol
What a cool mechanism!
I ran into dozens in use. All were set to either the last 4 digits of the street address or less commonly, the last 4 digits of the phone number. In the case of the phone number almost all numbers were in public phone numbers. A magnet would have been handy but mostly not needed.
Can confirm these are all over the Navy. lol. I wish I knew this when I was in…
No link for the magnet?
Now I just need to find one of those magnets, an invisibility cloak and the next truck heading to fort knox
A security vulnerability using feature that does exists but is not active? This reminds me of some actual software exploits.
A design "flaw" like this had to be intentional. The question is, why? All they had to do was make that one piece of metal non-ferrous, and it would've been secure. I wonder how many sensitive areas were breached throughout the years. There should be a deeper dive and possible investigation into this matter.
Should use non ferris metals for that, like stainless, so magnets can’t defeat it.
The impolite kitten inherently skip because business preoperatively complain regarding a berserk hammer. uninterested, soft cub
I remember going to a high value location location, exterior door, and putting in the factory code and opening the door ahead of my handler. No one ever changed the factory setting. I am sure it caused problems for someone down the road.
Junk-gineering at its worst.
at least they already fixed it
Have you had a chance to look at key card hotel room locks
Interesting... My company had one not a year ago guarding a bathroom door so that the public couldn't get in.
The other vulnerability with these locks .. watching the employee press the combination without shielding the buttons from view.
Wait a minute, these are used in the hospital I transport patients to
Had then for room locks at Job Corps buildings, though they may not have been changed since the campus was a mental institution. Forgot about these.
This has been known about and kept quiet within the lock community for years, there is no benefit to exposing it. Why does LRL (lock rapping Lawyer) AKA Walter (as in Mitty) think he has the right show the world this information. Unnecessary and irresponsible !
Man I could of had some fun at work years ago had I known that
I grow up with that type of lock all over the place, for me, this isn't about Lock picking it's more like a blast from the past, Thank You for this video Mr. Lawyer
Hey, that sexy chick down the street has one of these on her door still.
How many combinations does a lock with 4 keys and 6 digits long code have?
Clearly an intentional design feature, allowing access into top-secret government buildings by swarms of Canadian infiltrators. The Canadian government knows all your secrets now.
"Magnet on one, and we're in"
Okay, the piece of sheetetal attracted by the magnet is only present in models equipped with passage mode which was almost none, so...there's that. Bogus video
Oh, by the way, the lock shown in the video was not equipped with passageode so... there's that also
That’s some scary shit!
Question remains, can you pick the new version?
More convenience = less security
Wow that looks exactly like the locks we had on the entrance to SECURE (supposedly) buildings when I was in the US Air Force. Hell the shop I worked in required Secret clearance to access and it had one of those on the door.
It's a good bet many of them weren't fixed in government buildings.
0:16 Somewhere near Pittsburgh? Umm, Steelers fans are everywhere. There are more Steelers fans in Philadelphia than there are EAgles fans.
Or you can literally just use a credit card to pop that latch open
I don’t even care about locks but can’t stop watching
Airports used these locks a lot in the past.
This is a cheep ripe off of the original Adams Rite design
Oh, a magnet opens it!
yeah...that lock looks familiar. Either every military building i was in had that lock or one VERY like it.
Of the several hundred Unican (Kaba) 1000 series locks I have serviced only 2 have had the chamber release installed. This has never been a significant security risk as Kaba addressed this issue well before the general public had access to rare earth magnets of that quality. I don't know where you get your info from but perhaps you should consult a professional prior to spewing this crap!
Looks like a crap build anyway, with the ability to quite easily drill through it as well, sure, more noise, so it depends on what time you wanna get in if that is an option, but all around it looks shit.
are there any locks at all that are worth a shit??
I work at an airport we have similar ones ALL over the place
If only I had a rare earth metal magnet and lived in the 1980s or 90s again
Every McDonalds restaurant in the world.
There was one of those on a marina gate where I used to live. I found that rattling the door really hard would cause it to unlock. It was faster than using the combination and it really annoyed me that it was so easy, so that's how I went in and out from then on. One day the marina manager was walking up the ramp when I did it. He was pretty unhappy with me for being so rough with his door, then I showed him why. The entire mechanism was changed that afternoon. I'm not a picker or anything, so I have no idea if the new one was any more secure, but I do know that rattling the door wouldn't open it!
Why do all the locks I pick for fun get rendered useless afterwards.
These locks are used on a lot of doors at a Federal Nuclear Facility I at work.Fortunately not on any important doors.
Through by professional relationship with dormakaba, i can confirm that this was a real issue and all of the customers that were aware of this issue have been taken care of along with other issues similar to this in other locks. However, if the owner ignored all notifications and refused to get it fixed...and many do this...they would still have this problem still. I still replace these locks all of the time with their new e-plex series and when i take the old locks apart, some still have the old mechanism. I have kept a few discarded locks in the garage to show my friends. Nothing is absolutely secure and that goes for any lock manufacturer. You’d be surprised
You can also brute force all the combinations until you get it open. It took me 20 minutes once to get into a room with one of these door locks by going thru list of combinations I found on the internet. The combinations narrow down become most only use two buttons at the same time with other numbers single pushed. (there are NOT 55,555 combinations!)
We had these on medium-security doors, such as conference rooms, where I worked as DoD contractor. 7 times out of 10, someone would have written the combination in tiny print on the wall beside the doorframe. These locks were effective in keeping spies under the age of 4 out of such rooms - they weren't tall enough to read the combination.I have never seen these 1000 series locks used in high-security applications. Those doors used multiple locking mechanisms, usually badge readers with pin code keypads in conjunction with a Kaba X-10.
That part has no business being in that lock except for the purpose you described. I would use that slot in the combo chamber when the combination chamber failed to open and there was no outside key bypass system. I would drill a 1/8” whole at the top of the lock and insert a long scrum tool down the lock and put it into the slot in the combo chamber and then turn the outside knob or lever to get in. The repair of the whole was to tap it for a 1/8” security torx head screw with tapered head.
Can you do one on the trilogy’s style lock we got tons here at work.
I have a similar lock to the back door where I work and I’m curious to see if this will work on it too.
Than part is generally not installed in the chamber if the lock doesn't have a bypass thumb turn on the inside face plate. However considering peoples laziness the combination is generally set to 135 or 531, or any version of a 3 digit combination. Factory default is 2&4 together then 3.
I got into one of these when I was a little kid. I just happened to see what people were pushing when they were getting into the door at the airport. I was maybe 5 at the time.
The hollow novel notably cheat because banana essentially greet abaft a lavish word. secret, lovely methane
Simply replace the steel with brass and the magnet tricks won't work. Why use steel when it's not necessary?
LPL: ... look at one of the greatest lock design blunders of all time (0:03)Every lock maker ever: Please don't let it be one of ours
Another flaw is you don’t need to enter the code in any sort of order. As long as all the buttons are pressed, it opens.
My unit’s barracks use these, probably installed when the barracks was made in like 06... I might be about to have some fun
very easy to pick,loo
Thanks for your time
I'm a locksmith in the UK, and the number of these that haven't been correctly fitted, so the deadlock section of the latch ISN'T depressed while the door is shut is ridiculous, meaning it can be slipped with a sheet of mica or if the latch is visible a knife blade.
As easy to defeat as the Steelers defense.
I personally love using these locks. It super easy to maintain and I've come to lock the simplicity of the design. Kaba makes some good locks, but this one is always been a favorite of mine.
