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

Use additional scissor clips or glue-on attachments with this kit to secure multiple items with one lock. Key numbers for the Guardian 810 series lock 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.

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.

You can secure your laptop in four 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 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 cant 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.
