Computer Locks
Computer locks are a convenient and inexpensive to secure equipment. Almost all desktops, laptops, and monitors come with the standard computer lock slot. When secured to a desk or table, these locks are an excellent way to prevent someone from effortlessly walking away with your computer. They are also great for studying in public spaces, such as the Library and coffee shops, as they provide extra peace of mind when you get up for a drink or to use the restroom. Locks are available for purchase at the Computer Connection
