I ordered this lock to feel more secure having my laptop at Starbucks. It allows me to get up and leave for a brief moment and helps to reserve my seat ;P
Honestly, I was not expecting anything mind-blowing. This product came just as the description stated. I looked up a few of these laptop locks before settling on this one. First reason why I chose this one is because the cord coils automatically and does not leave a slack of extra cord lying out for me to get tangled in (I'm THAT clumsy, whatever!). It makes the work space feel cleaner. Second reason, this lock came with a YouTube video! You have to be stupid if you can not figure this lock out after watching the idiot proof video. The video makes me feel like Kensington actually cares about their customers. Third reason, setting your combo and changing it is easy (I used a tiny flathead screwdriver).
JUST BECAUSE it's easy to set & change your combo does not mean that some random thief can come up and change it without you knowing. You have to be dumb to leave your laptop out alone long enough for anyone to change your combo.
The cord is long enough for you to attach it to a small cafe table. The lock fits snugly onto the side of my laptop. What else should it do? It does what it says!
