Simplex Push button door locks can be defeated by a magnet
"Mr. Miller also argued in court that the magnet was unwieldy and too powerful for most people to use. "It's a big, heavy thing that if you have it in your pocket, and you happen to walk by something that's made out of metal, you will get stuck to it and have to call 911 to get your pants somehow removed to save yourself," he said. This month, lawyers for the plaintiffs showed a video in court as an informal briefing for the judge that countered some of Mr. Miller's contentions. The video shows someone sliding a magnet against a lock and removing it with one hand. The magnet pulls a locking plate away from the mechanism, allowing the door handle or knob to turn freely. Once the magnet has been removed, the narrator says, the plate slides back into place, and there is no evidence that the mechanism has been bypassed."
