Kensington Cable Lock

Cable Locks That Are Compatible with Kensington Lock Slots

Laptops and notebooks are commonly fitted with a security lock slot to allow their owners to attach their devices to an immovable or heavy object with the use of a cable lock. Kensington and Noble lock slots are the most popular lock slot types used on leading brands today. If you are looking for a cable lock for your mobile computer, Legion has you covered. We offer a wide range of cable locks to suit your specific needs and preferences.

What Is a Kensington Lock Slot?

A Kensington lock slot, also called a K-slot, provides an additional security lock slot on a mobile or movable device – fitting a T-bar locking mechanism for a robust and sturdy lock. Such a slot is 3 mm x 7 mm and normally marked with a “K” and a small lock icon next to the slot, making it distinguishable from HDMI and USB slots on the device. Apart from laptops, you can find K-slots on display monitors, printers, scanners, and other hardware as well.

What Is the Purpose of a K-Slot?

When it comes to laptops and notebooks, lock slots are strategically located adjacent to an essential component of the device. Therefore, in the event that a cable lock is broken free from the lock slot, it will cause damage to the adjacent essential component, rendering the device useless, and protecting your personal data in the process. As a result, when working on your laptop in a public space such as an airport lobby or coffee shop, you can simply use a cable lock to attach your device to a heavy object and discourage any petty theft attempts.

Our Range of Cable Locks

Legion’s selection of cable locks includes several locks that are compatible with Kensington lock slots, along with options for Noble and NANO lock slots as well. Our cable locks are manufactured from commercial-grade steel and alloys for the locking mechanisms, and galvanised steel that is sheathed in PVC for the cables. We offer our cable locks in round-key or 4-digit combination locks to suit your personal preferences, with a choice of single or multiple lock heads. Our cable locks are also available in different lengths, and we can deliver custom solutions as well.

Where Can I Use My Cable Lock?

Cable locks are designed to operate in a similar fashion as bicycle chains, meaning that you can secure your mobile devices wherever and whenever you use them. Public spaces include work offices, classrooms, and storefronts as well, extending the use of cable locks to more than just personal applications. Workstations are also ideal for cable locks that are compatible with Kensington, Noble, or NANO lock slots. We offer cable locks that feature multiple lock heads to secure multiple devices at your workstation.
