Kensington ClickSafe Keyed Laptop Lock

 

The Kensington ClickSafe Keyed Laptop Lock will certainly deter any thief looking to grab and go, but it's not a fool-proof solution.

61 inches of cable. Secure carbon fiber wire. Comes with two keys, and holder for anchor and tool

Can cut through cable with bolt cutters. Not a fool-proof theft prevention device

Kensington ClickSafe Keyed Laptop Lock review

Locksmith must remove if tampered with

 

I thought it would be a dissapointing experience to use a web cam,, hard to connect, bad quality etc., but this has proved to be an enjoyable experience

Not compatible

 

Make sure you check to see if it is compatible with your laptop. I bought it since I read that it is compatible with 99% of laptops, but found that I was wrong. It doesn't work with the Inspiron 1521. I have to return it now

Beware - requires adapter

 

All products sold directly through the Dell website sholud be compatible with Dell products, unless duly noted!

high quality, looks great

while this is sold on the Dell website, it does NOT directly fit my new Inspiron 1420. It requires an adapter that will be provided free-of-charge by Kensington. Allow 3 weeks after you contact them to recieve the adapter in the mail
