Product Description

Security for your laptop or notebook without sacrificing mobility. Think about your laptop computer; you love its mobility, you love being able to put it on your lap, your table, your desk, however you want, wherever you are. But you also need to be able to set it on your desk or table top without worrying whether it'll be there when you come back. That's where TechSafe comes in. Its unique hardened steel security blade slips through the strongest point of your laptop: its hinge. The patented security blade is unobtrusive when in use so you retain access to your laptop's ports and connectors. It slides into place scratch-free and secure, and stays on the job whether your laptop is open or closed. Hook the included 4-digit combination lock through the security blade to lock down your laptop without hampering your ability to work. Loop the tempered five-foot (1.5 meter) locking cable around a table leg, chair or other immoveable object and your laptop isn't going anywhere without your permission. When you're ready to hit the road, coil up the cable and secure it with the included cable strap. The TechSafe Cable Lock System is perfect for any laptop that doesn't include a security anchor hole, or whenever you want low-key high security for your machine.

It actually cracked my screen.

I don't know what good a locked computer is that can't sit on a desk.

The locking mechanism is okay and fine.

I wasn't sure if this would work for my Macbook Pro Retina, but I figure since I didn't have any other choice that was really palatable that I would give it a try. Though it doesn't work as well as it would for the original Macbook Pro because the lid can't close with the blade in (and it doesn't fit quite as snugly), thankfully the thinnest blade fits through the hinge and works well. I was really disappointed when I realized that my MBPR didn't have a Kensington lock because I leave my computer on my desk at work all the time just for a few seconds and I didn't want to keep having to lock it in my drawer, but this solved that problem for me. It is not the most elegant solution, but it is by far the best thing I have seen especially compared to the really ugly other solutions like stick on hooks and cases. If Griffin were to make on for the MBPR specifically with a smaller, flatter blade I would buy it in an instant, but in the meantime this is a pretty good solution to keeping my MBPR safer from casual theft.

I am using the Griffin Cable Locking System with my Lenovo Yoga Ultrabook and with the Lockblade No. 1 this works fine. Clearly with a pair of pliers and some force the system could be broken, but then this is the same with the Kensington system. The intention is to discourage the quick unplanned theft.

It's a hinge lock for laptops without a Kensington security slot, so essentially Ultrabooks and the like. Comes with 3 different lock variations for varying laptop shapes and sizes, and the cord and locking mechanism feel sturdy and reliable. However, don't try to close your laptop while the mechanism is locked if you have an all-glass screen; the weight of the locking mechanism leverages enough force against your screen to crack it (personal experience), which could lead to costly repairs.

This is a little harder to use than a standard lock, but is probably the only option that one can use for a macbook retina. Mine is a 15" and has no lock slot. This lock works with it though, goes through the gap on the hinge, and it takes ~30 seconds to put on or take off.

The hinge clamp is such a tight fit, even with the smallest size that any lateral movement of the laptop can twist it where it puts pressure on the screen. It actually cracked my screen.

Obviously part of the problem is with the computer (Lenovo Yoga) that should have been built with a lock port. So Lenovo should also rethink their production.

Needed a lock for the macbook pro that would work, even though I had a clear case protector covering the sides where the locking port normally is. All other locks were too short to get through the protector case. But this lock, going between the display and keyboard works really well.
