Apparently it is "offering manufacture leading laptop thievery prevention"

Nuff said!

Its "forensic" in nature is it, I cant remember the last time a laptop lock was considered to be anything related to the courts or the court system. Good price for a visual deterrent.

Does it come with theft insurance?

I thought forensics were related to science...which in turn might be of interest to the courts...

Will stop the opportunist thief, as others have said, a decent visual deterrent.

Forensics is commonly misconceived as being related to science and while it is associated with it forensics means "of the courts". So it means in that instance literally science of the courts for forensic science. Similarly for Forensic Computing is computing of the courts. Long story short the process of evidence that is admissible in court.

Your fine unless a thief has a pen on them in which case these will take … Your fine unless a thief has a pen on them in which case these will take a second to unlock



Just a pen or a penknife?

Looks the same as one I got from Poundland (or one of the pound stores) a few months ago. In which case it's overpriced.

And that one fell to pieces the first time I unlocked it, so as far as I'm concerned it doesn't even pass muster as a visual deterrent, never mind offering any real security.

For something as expensive as a laptop, you'd be better getting a genuine Kensington lock from Ebay for about a tenner.

Are genuine Kensington locks actually any better?


I don't know if this video is a genuine kensington lock or not, but I thought they were all supposed to be rubbish.

i bought this lock when they had the 20 meter Ethernet cable on offer and it is rubbish, the hole where the keys goes in doesn't turn properly, ive had to buy a £35 kensington lock for my new mac book pro, stay away from cheap metal locks, like this.

what about a combination lock rather than a key type. would it still be as rubbish?

Had these in my local poundland - ok for a quid!

many youtube clips with people opening this with a piece of cardbord or pen within seconds. LOL

Dont waste your money.

If u do require a laptop lock i highly recommened the Cubebyte £10 on ebay store

screwdriver...pah! thats sooo obvious. have a go with some cardboard.

the kensington microsaver ds is the best one! £25 odd but its more secure

Poundland were doing these last year, they are OK as a visual deterent. I can't remember how much I paid though in Poundland for these lol

Poundland used to do these (still do?) for....................................£1.

got a kensington lock, they can alsoi be undone with some cardboard (like an empty bogroll). also easy to break off as previously noted as no matter how strong your lock is, your laptop's case wont withstand the presure and will just snap that bit very easily.

litterally, only good in a busy room. e.g. an open plan office if your coworkers are suspect. worthless as any form of real protection.

Depends on the laptop, I'd say they might offer a little bit of protection on a fully metal chassi, but not if its just plastic.

This is a good buy if you just need something for a deterrent. But if you actually leave your laptop in a place where it could be stolen and really want security, this just won't cut it.

Plus your insurance might not cover any theft if its stolen with this lock on.

Obviously not totally secure, but I'm going to get quite a few in July to lock my stuff down to stop casual theft eg if there's a party in the house. My Desktop PC tower, monitor, laptop and 3 external Harddrives all use these.


You must have some great friends!
