Sleek Carrying Case Integrated Into the Locking Mechanism Makes Securing Laptops on the Road Easier and More Convenient than Ever
Kensington Technology Group, the leading provider of accessories that make using computers more comfortable and productive - and creators of the patented Kensington® Security Slot built into virtually every laptop made - introduced today the MicroSaver® Retractable Computer Lock, the latest innovation in a long line of industry-leading Kensington® security products. Specially designed for the mobile computer user with an integrated carrying case that holds a retractable cable and Kensington's patented T-bar lock, the MicroSaver® Retractable Computer Lock makes it easy and convenient for mobile professionals to secure their computers and data while on the road.
The MicroSaver Retractable Computer Lock holds a full four feet of steel cable, which works with a loop in the integrated carrying case to form part of the locking function. With the touch of a button, the cable retracts easily and smoothly into the 4 x 2.5 inch case, helping to keep your laptop carrying case or back pack neat and organized.
As with all Kensington MicroSaver products, MicroSaver Retractable Computer Lock features the patented Kensington T-Bar locking mechanism, specifically designed to fit the industry standard Kensington Security Slot (K-Slot) - identified by the K & Lock logo - which is a standard feature of 99 percent of all laptops made today. No other lock can match the T-bar to K-Slot interface, which ensures the fit between lock and computer creates the strongest, most secure connection on the market. And, because the patented T-Bar mechanism is designed to fit small, mobile equipment, the lock will not lift computers or peripherals off the desk or block other ports.
"Securing data through physical means and making work on the road easier and more convenient continue to be major themes that direct our product development," said Janet Dulsky, Director of Product Management at Kensington. "The MicroSaver Retractable is unique because it brings these two principles together. The result is that words like 'sleek,' 'compact' and 'convenient' can now be used to describe a security product for the first time. Of course, the MicroSaver Retractable Computer Lock is a Kensington product, so 'industry-leading,' 'quality' and 'patented' continue to apply, as well."
MicroSaver Retractable Computer Lock ($44.99 MSRP, $29.99 street) is available nationwide from computer resellers and at www.kensington.com. As with all Kensington security products, MicroSaver Retractable Computer Lock is backed by The Kensington PromiseSM, which includes a one year warranty and free technical support.
