Helpful Tips and Instructions

Kaba Mas X-09 Lock
Tips for correcting the issue when "OP" is displayed but the lock won't open. Answer: The "OP" display means you've entered the correct combination (or combinations, if the lock is in dual mode). Remember to turn the dial with full wrist turns. This keeps the lock fully powered. The problem may be that the combo motor is an early version, which should be replaced.
  • TRY THIS: Vary the speed of dialing after achieving the "OP" display. Dialing either more rapidly or more slowly will often retract the bolt.
  • OR TRY THIS: After achieving "OP", begin striking the front of the container near the dial ring with a dead blow mallet as you continue dialing to the right. This may shake the combo motor loose so that it will operate as it receives electric power. Protect the surface of the container with a piece of cardboard.
