Why Kensington for Physical Device Security

To us, security is about more than saving your physical device from theft - it's also about saving data from falling into the wrong hands, which could be far more costly than simply replacing the device. That's why our innovative security solutions are tough, easy to use and compatible with 99% of laptops, projectors, printers and monitors with security lock slots.

Below is a breakdown of what sets our locks apart from the rest, providing you with the industry-leading solutions you've come to expect from the pioneer in physical device protection.

Kensington Common Keying System

Kensington's 5mm Common Keying System enables businesses to leverage a single tubular keying solution for securely managing all of their Kensington locks. The keying system is so small, it makes it even harder for people trying to pick it. But for those who try, our patented Hidden Pin™ technology is designed to defend against common picking techniques, thwarting attempts to pick the lock.

  • 5mm Kensington Common Keying System
  • Patented Hidden Pin Technology (7 pins plus one "hidden" pin)
  • Tubular keying
