Kensington type laptop lock - with a difference,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Laptop Security Lock ~ Combination Type (Multi Purpose) ~ 1,000 Codes ~ Can also be used for Bikes, Suitcases, Laptop Bags etc ~ Virtually Unbreakable ~ Why buy a lock with only one use?
This combination locking cable for a laptop is great value. It's a generous length and quick to put on and take off. Before first use you must attach an adaptor to the Kensington socket on your laptop using the small screwdriver supplied. The cable lock clamps onto this. (The adaptor cannot be unscrewed in the locked position.) You can set your own three digit combination.
Or, if you wish to secure other items instead you can use one of the two other adaptors - through which the cable is permanently threaded. One is on the end loop of the cable, the other is free to run along the main length until you attach the combination lock, when it grips the cable tight.
This cleverly designed and versatile product would not last long against a serious attack but is great for deterring the casual thief in the library or on the train whilst you nip to the loo.
The adaptor system might not be for everyone. It sticks out a bit, so it could snag when putting your laptop in a bag. If you regularly swap between more than one laptop (and don't want to buy a cable for each one) you would need the kind which attaches directly to the Kensington socket instead. If these things aren't important to you then I would certainly recommend this multi-purpose lock.
