The Laptop LockAlarm from Swann is an excellent way to protect your laptop computer from theft. Straightforward to use, this device comes with a Kensington lock that attaches to your computer's security slot as well as a high-tensile retractable cable that can form a loop of up to 24" or 60cm. To secure your laptop, you simply run the cable around the leg of a table, for instance, then through the Kensington lock that's attached to your computer and then to the LockAlarm itself.
The LockAlarm has a tab that connects to the end of the cable and secures that cable with a three digit combination lock. After you've set everything up, if anyone tries to cut the cable or suddenly move anything connected to the LockAlarm, the LockAlarm will sound an ear-piercing 100dB siren. The LockAlarm is extremely portable, runs on four LR44 batteries and features an LED low battery indicator. While intended for securing laptops, this alarm can also secure a variety of other products, such as luggage, snowboards, backpacks and more.

When you press the top of the Kensington lock to insert the cable, the pins don't extend far enough, so the entire lock turns by itself, and falls out of the slot on the laptop. Also, because of the way this was designed, its not possible to make the fit more snug with foam washers.
