Delivering a More Robust Level of Security

Guardian locks have been designed with improved pick resistance and more available key numbers. For increased security you have the choice to have your lock keyed-alike, keyed-different, master-keyed, and even request grand master-keyed at no upcharge.

Secure multiple pieces of equipment with one lock

The scissor clip and glue-on attachment included in the kit allow you to secure multiple items. Key numbers can be matched to other kits in this product line with different options and security levels. Manufacturing improvements allow for custom key options in a few days, not a few months.

Guardian 810 Series Keyed Lock

The Guardian 810 style lock is the preferred method for desktop computers. This lock uses external fasteners instead of a built in scissor clip (like the 820 lock style does), because most desktop equipment doesn’t need to be locked and unlocked often.

Lock Style: Keyed lock
Lock Finish: Chrome

keys for the Guardian locks

Guardian Series Keys

There are several keyed options for you to choose from, and each kit comes with 2 keys unless otherwise specified for the key option chosen. The key type you choose depends on access requirements and organizational needs.

SUPERVISOR-ONLY ACCESS (keyed-alike): The same key can open all locks. Good choice if only a couple of people need access to the locks, such as a computer lab, or stationary desktops or laptops.

SUPERVISOR-OVERRIDE ACCESS (master-keyed): Each lock can be opened by its own individual key, but there is one “master” key that opens all locks. Ideal for administrative or technical support access.

KA UNDER MASTER (KAMK): This combines the first two options above, allowing for multiple groups of KA locks under one Master key.

INDIVIDUAL ACCESS (KD): Each lock is opened by its own unique key. Great for personal use or where mandated by security laws.

SPECIAL (Grand Master, Reserved, etc): There are many combinations of the above options for larger organizations, such as separate Master Key systems for each campus and one Grand Master key to open them all.

INSTRUCTIONS
Secure your desktop computer in 3 easy steps:
Guardian lock kit looped through desk data hole

Step one: Anchor the security cable

Determining an anchor point for the security cable is a critical step to ensure your computer is secure. The most common anchor points are through the data hole in a desk, around a table leg with a cross brace so it can’t be slipped off, or attached to a nearby immovable object. If these options are not available, you can use an accessory like a glue on attachment as a permanent anchor point.

Step two: Secure the cable to your computer and monitor.

Most desktop computers and monitors come with security slots to attach a scissor clip, or openings to run the security cable through. Alternatively, you can use the glue on attachment included in your kit to create a permanent connection point on any device. Determine the options available to you before proceeding.

View examples of how you can secure your computer and monitor to the cable.

Step three: Connect the lock to the security cable

Run the cable through all the openings or fasteners as determined in Step 2. After the last fastener, snap the lock onto the cable to prevent it from being pulled back through. Your equipment is now secure! To release the lock form the cable, insert the key and turn to the left.
