Guardian 810 Series Keyed Lock
The economical design of the Guardian 810 style lock, combined with an external scissor clip, forms the equipment security point in our laptop cable lock system. This is the preferred choice when you need budget friendly security without a loss in quality.
Lock Style: Keyed lock
Lock Finish: Chrome
Our tough, durable 6’ steel security cable is strong enough to provide reliable protection but light and flexible enough to make it the perfect cable for laptop security. It’s made from 1⁄8” thick, heavy duty, aircraft cable and coated with vinyl for a 3⁄16” finished diameter. This economy version (E) is for lower risk areas, or where budget is the primary concern.
Cable Length: 72”
Cable Diameter with Vinyl Coating: 3⁄16”
Cable Color: Smoky (dark gray)
The Scissor Clip is designed to fit into the existing security slot of your laptop.
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.

Step one: Anchor the security cable
Determining an anchor point for the security cable is a critical step to ensure your laptop 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: Insert the scissor clip into the security slot of your laptop
Security slots are generally located on the side or rear of most laptops. Once located, form an X shape with the scissor clip and insert the angled ends into the security slot. Then fold the clip flat to prepare it to receive the security cable.
Step three: Feed the security cable through the scissor clip
Once the scissor clip is properly inserted into the security slot, feed the end of the security cable through the clip's circular opening. The cable prevents the scissor clip from being removed from the security slot.
Step four: Connect the lock to the security cable
Simply snap the lock onto the cable and your laptop is protected. To release the lock from the cable, insert the key and turn to the left.
