Kaba Ilco National Settlement

If you own or use a Simplex® or Unican™ mechanical pushbutton lock in Canada, you may have a claim in a proposed class action settlement.

A settlement has been reached in a proposed class action lawsuit filed in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (the “Court”) with respect to certain models of Simplex® or Unican™ mechanical pushbutton locks. The Plaintiffs claimed that the Simplex® or Unican™ locks were improperly designed and marketed. The Defendants have denied all claims and continue to deny the Plaintiffs’ allegations and maintain that the Defendants have not engaged in any wrongful acts. This Settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing nor an indication that any law was violated. Nevertheless, the Defendants have concluded that it is in their best interests that this lawsuit be resolved subject to and on the terms and conditions set forth herein. The Settlement is not effective unless and until it is approved by the Court.
