Kensington has launched its latest range of notebook and desktop locks.

The company has completely updated its MicroSaver lock range to improve the security computer hardware at “Safe,” “Safe Pro” and “Safe Premium” levels. The MicroSaver DS Notebook Lock has also been revealed for the first time.

The new locks have been designed to make it easier for customers to choose an appropriate level of security, said the company.

The first addition to the 24.99 pounds (US$46) Safe range, the Kensington MicroSaver Combination Notebook Lock, offers basic security protection using a four-wheel combination lock with 10,000 possible combinations and Kensington’s T-bar lock system.

This technology also appears in the Safe Pro locks, which add a carbon-tempered steel cable that’s 20 percent stronger than before. This range includes the MicroSaver Notebook Lock (34.99 pounds) and the MicroSaver Twin Notebook Lock (49.99 pounds), which enables users to lock two pieces of equipment with one cable.

Kensington is also launching a completely new kind of lock, the MicroSaver DS Notebook Lock (44.99 pounds). This also uses the T-bar mechanism and a newly developed disk lock design, with a 1.8-meter carbon-tempered steel cable and a stainless steel braided cover. Kensington calls it its “strongest lock ever.”

All the MicroSaver locks are compatible with any product that incorporates a Kensington Security Slot.
