    the link you included to ilco does not work.i suggest you do a google search for ilco or simplex
    or kaba /class action suit and you will find out that these locks can be opened in 2 SECONDS!!!
    with a strong magnet.because of the class action the co. is playing coy.but,i believe they have a fix.
    their reluctance stems from them having to pay millions for the labor.
    please get back to me,as you see this is not a laughing matter.jack

If there is such a item, it will come from the manufacturer. My suggestion would be to contact the manufacturer directly with the particulars and your complaint. Here is the site: ilco.com/">http://www.kaba-ilco.com/

How is it that you discovered you can open this lock with a magnet? I have not seen such a thing but will not say it is not possible.

If you are unsatisfied with the response you get from the manufacturer, there is your local lock smith who may be able to effect some repair or modification for you. Of course, if security is the question, (and it must be since you spent a lot of money for this device) the answer may be to abandon the lock in favor of a different type, style or method. Kaba-Illco offers a very extensive selection as does Seargent http://www.sargentlock.com/ , Kwikset http://www.kwikset.com/ , Yale http://www.yalecommercial.com/ and others.

I suspect your problem will be properly addressed by the manufacturer.

Thank you for your question @ FixYa.com

I trust this answers your question ... if not ... post a 'comment'

    My friend, I am not laughing. I have seen this kind of lock in my country. Several places where I have worked in the past (secure military spaces and buildings) use these locks with no problem. I am not aware of anything like you are reporting. I didn't invent the links, I googled them and clicked on them and visited these sites myself. If they don't work for you, I am sorry.

Unican 1000 locked out of room! Donot know how to access the lock to open the door!


I don't think that you have much of a chance since the lock is doing exactly what it was made to do--preventing bypass and entry from the outside!

That said, I don't have a direct answer, but here is the contact info you need for customer service. They may be able to help you:

Kaba Ilco is in North Carolina, so it's probably best to call during Eastern Daylight business hours.

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

I work in care home where we use unican 7000 series to lock our office. One of our service users know the code so I tried to find instructions of how to change the code.


You will find a link to download the manual for your model on this page:

http://www.kaba-ilco.com/access_control/literature/literature_grid_mechanical_pushbutton_locks.aspx?id=13

This page will show you a grid; go across from the "7000" to the rightmost column "TIPS" and click on PDF there. The download for changing the code will appear.

This is a PDF file, requiring Adobe Reader is installed on your computer to open. There is a link on the same page to download Adobe reader if the file will not display for you.

Good luck!

How can I put a new code in a unican 7000 when I dont know the original code

Go to the grid that the highlighted link above takes you to, then go to the far-right column for 7000/7100 " Tips" and click on PDF, which will download the PDF file of the reprogramming instructions that you need. Again, you will need Adobe reader to view this file.
