Customer Reviews:

  • Works well, just doesn't fit very well
    I have a Dell Inspiron 1505, and this lock does work with it, it's just very loose when it's locked. If I were to buy another computer lock, I would get one that doesn't have a cable that coils up, just a straight cable. My reason is that the ad said something like, "It extends up to six feet." Yeah, it probably would, but the springyness in the cable makes it so you have to put a lot of tension on it in order to do that.
    I think that overall the quality of this lock is pretty good, it hasn't failed yet.
    It is a little difficult to put the combination into the lock, because when it is in the computer, you have to enter the combo on the side, not the top. Typical engineering I guess.
    I would recommend this lock if you don't mind little ergonomic flaws....more info
  • worthy investment for your laptop
    lightweight and compact, with a coiled cable and smooth turning lock. fits snugly against your laptop and stores nicely in any auxillary side pocket in your laptop bag without taking up much room or adding additional weight for comfortable transport. highly recommend....more info
  • springy
    Great locking mechanism, the the cable is like a giant slinky cord and can be irritating as it never stretches out and can pull light laptops if stretched out far....more info
  • good for the price
    It is a bit confusing to figure out how to use at first, but once you get the hang of it, it is very good.

    One thing though, the cord could have been a little longer.

  • Don't buy this lock. It's absolutely terrible
    I bought this lock from the apple store and it took me 20 minutes to put in on my mac. Once on, i tried to unlock it, and it wouldnt come off. So I spent hours trying to figure out the combination, i think the combination reset itself. SO, it was stuck onto my laptop. I had to call a locksmith who came and drilled it off for 100 dollars. Kensington said theyd refund me up to 80 dollars. Thats the best i can expect, i guess. But i really suggest if you want to get a laptop lock, buy one with the keys. THey are much more convenient to use. ...more info
  • Trouble with this lock
    We recently bought this lock for my son going to college. The English directions do not fit reality. They show turning a slot 90 degrees clockwise, when in fact it is only possible to turn it about 30 degrees counter-clockwise. No red dot ever appears. After four adults and two college freshman worked with this thing for about two hours we finally got the combination set. We were so sure it wasn't going to work we went out and bought another lock in the meantime. So setting the combo is problematic.

    Using the lock is also troublesome. As mentioned in other reviews, the attachment to the laptop is loose and if I were willing to risk damage to the new $3000 laptop, I feel sure I could have ripped it out with little effort.

    Also, as mentioned, the cable is VERY springy. My son't Fujitsu laptop has the slot in the right front, so the lock cable is always trying to pull the thing forward and off of his desk.

    The only positive thing I can say about this lock is that it does not require you to install a little metal connection point in the laptop slot, though locks that do are probably more secure....more info
  • fast, easy, and perfect for you MacBook!
    the the price and the ease of use you can't beat it! i have a MacBook that has a substantial amount of expensive Math/Bio/Chem programs on it, and this is perfect. I was having trouble finding a lock that would work with the Macs until i found this one. you won't be disapointed, use it right out of the box...more info
  • portable notebook lock is poor quality
    before I started college, I was told that I should get a laptop lock for living in the dorms. I bought this lock from the apple store. after setting the combination, I had great difficulty fitting it into the slot on my computer, so I had a friend do it for me. later when I wanted to take it off, it was jammed and would not come off, no matter what I tried. eventually, I resorted to having it sawed off with a hacksaw. now i have the combo part permanently stuck to my computer, making me look like a bloody criminal. DON'T BUY THIS LOCK!...more info
  • DO NOT BUY THIS LOCK
    I have a brand new ('08) MacBook, and I bought this cable lock at the Apple store.

    Here's why this lock is terrible:
    * Cable is so springy I'm afraid it will fling my computer across the room if I stretch it to more than about 4 feet long. It keeps getting caught on all of my other wires.
    * It's flimsy. The fit is very loose and it seems like a good whack would pop it out of the computer.
    * Setting/unseetting the combination hurts my fingertips.
    * It almost got stuck on the laptop (which would have tested the theory about popping it out with a good whack).
    * Once off, it was stuck again (unable to put back on the computer), as the combination had now changed on its own.

    I'm returning this ASAP. Shame on the Apple store for carrying this garbage!

    p.s. We bought two. My partner doesn't hate hers as much as I do mine....more info
  • Combo Notebook Lock
    Great product, certainly better than the key lock (no missing keys). The order shipped fast & brand new, I will be ordering this item again in the near future....more info
  • Defective lock
    Despite numerous negative reviews, I took my chances and ordered this combination lock for my laptop computer. It didn't work. Supposedly, it comes with a factory pre-set combination of 0-0-0-0 and you are supposed to reset it by turning the end faceplate of the lock with a coin. I tried a coin and when it didn't budge, I tried a screwdriver, and when it still didn't budge, I tried pliers and it still didn't budge. I couldn't even figure out how to make the lock work if I were willing to use the 0-0-0-0 combination - the locking mechanism didn't change positions at all when I scrambled the combination.

    I called the manufacturer's Tech Support and all they could offer was "It's defective." They advised me to send it back to the vendor (Amazon) for a full refund since the product is under warranty. I have returned it and am awaiting my refund.

    I have since purchasedTargus PA410U DEFCON CL Notebook Computer Cable Lock, which is much easier to use (like most notebook locks, however, it probably won't stop a determined thief)....more info
  • Puny Cable
    I find it hard to believe that this is the same cable pictured at the top of the product description. Yes, the picture found when scrolling further down matches what I saw when I opened the box. Unfortunately I didn't look that far down, expecting this to be a simple purchase of the kind of cable I've been supplied by corporate employers. Alas, I found something that looks more like a "wire" than a "cable", and I have trouble imagining it being anything more than a minimal deterrent. Sorry, my four figure investment deserves more than this....more info
