Kensington Computer Products Group, has introduced the Kensington ClickSafe keyed laptop lock, a simpler, safer, and smarter new physical computer security standard for mobile professionals. The globally recognized creator of the famous Kensington Security Slot built into 99% of laptops, has created the newest standard in laptop security. The ClickSafe lock makes it easy to lock down a laptop as buckling and unbuckling a seat belt.

 

"We have taken smart made simple to a whole new level by simplifying a five-step process into one easy step, without compromising the supreme strength and protection Kensington locks have always offered. It's so quick to use, there's no reason for business users to leave their laptop unprotected ever again," said Rob Humphrey, director of security products at Kensington.

ClickSafe protects computers in just one, simple step. The lock simply attaches to a laptop with one easy motion. Kensington's smart made simple philosophy has eliminated the need to first insert a key and then follow multiple steps to engage a lock. There's no learning curve or hassle to use it, so productivity is never compromised. ClickSafe's firm, anti-theft engagement mechanism pairs with cable made from superior carbon strengthened materials to deliver the best security available in a cable-style lock. Kensington rigorously tests its security products for real-world conditions to resist lock-picking, corrosion, tampering and extreme environments, and the new ClickSafe has exceeded them all.

The ClickSafe requires a special "bolt" to be inserted into Kensington Security Slot that will inevitably stick out of a notebook. As a result, some people may find it uncomfortable.

Kensington ClickSafe Keyed Laptop Lock costs $49.99.
