Lock it down — securing your bigger tech toys

We all love our laptops, TVs, and other big-ticket tech gadgets. But let’s face it, they can be tempting targets for thieves. Here’s a tip you might not have considered: many devices come with built-in security features you might be overlooking!

  • Security Slots: Your Device’s Secret Weapon: Look closely at your laptop or TV. See those small holes near the Kensington lock symbol? Those are security slots! These slots allow you to secure your device to a desk or other immovable object with a special lock (sold separately). Think of it like putting an anchor on your tech boat – it makes it much harder to steal.
  • Mounting Marvels: Mounting options are another great way to physically secure your devices. Many TVs and even some laptops can be mounted on walls or desks using special brackets. This not only frees up space but also makes them less accessible to grab-and-go thieves.

Security slots and mounting options might seem like small details, but they can make a big difference in deterring theft.
