Lock it or lose it 😊 Top 3 best Microsoft Surface Locks for 2020

Don’t make your Surface tablets an easy target….

Disclaimer: this post is only for people who care about their tablet not getting stolen.

The Microsoft Surface tablets range is expanding with the launch late 2019 of redesigned and powerful Surface Pro 7 and Surface Pro X. While fighting to remove the conflict between the tablet and laptop, those mobile devices have become the central hub for all an individual’s personal data. Finances, businesses, pastimes, social lives, private lives, and identities can be accessed through these lightweight gadgets.

According to a recent report, 73% of stolen computerized devices are smartphones and tablets with Laptops at 2nd place at 24.2% and PCs at 3%.

If your tablet or phone falls into the wrong hands and doesn’t have the proper protection, the thief can get more than a resell profit. The information that an open mobile device provides is enough for a bad actor to carry out identity theft. When that is the case, thieves can even utilize a stolen surface to reset passwords on high-risk logins, such as your email.

If you are using your Surface tablet for personal use or it is company-owned, anti-theft is of major relevance. The thought of the loss of personal data or pictures is crucial to avoid as well as of course any data breaches or leak in proprietary company information.

All the anti-theft software, locking screens, etc. in the world won’t help if your surface tablet is stolen.

Fortunately, Maclocks (a Compulocks brands company), known for its security and display hardware solutions, has introduced various protection tools for the Surface Pro and Surface Go tablets on the market.

Maclocks, known for its security and display hardware solutions, has announced the introduction of its first Surface “Ledge”, a lock slot adapter for Microsoft’s Surface Pro and Surface Go tablets, allowing to secure them with a cable lock.

The value of a tablet makes it one of the most targeted objects for theft yet it includes no physical security solution. The Ledge is the ideal deterrent for this device. A tablet typically has the users’ most sensitive information including financial details, private photos, professional data and more.

There are many options to keep the content and software protected, but the physical hardware security often gets overlooked. A Ledge lock slot adapter to keep it safe and secure should be priority number one.   

These are the 3 best Surface security locks for your consideration:

#1 The Ledge – exclusively designed for Surface

Compulocks introduced recently the Surface “Ledge”, a security lock for Surface Pro or Surface Go tablets, creating a low profile super sleek Surface tablet cable lock.

The patent-pending “Ledge” is the ideal theft deterrent lock for Surface. Stylish and secure, it is the world’s slimmest, ultra-lightweight cable lock slot connector exclusively designed for Microsoft Surface tablets.

Custom-designed and manufactured exclusively for Surface tablets it has a reinforced nylon edge, protective inner rubber coating to protect from scratches and resistant aluminum casting.

The triangle-shaped lock is compatible with all standard T-bar cable locks, so you don’t have to buy an additional one if you already possess one.

Easy to install on both the left or right side of the kickstand (and as easily removed), it requires no adhesives or alteration to the body of the tablet, and it does not affect any of the device’s functionalities.

To protect against theft, Compulocks’ Surface Security Lock has been custom-designed and manufactured exclusively for these two models: complete with a reinforced nylon edge, protective inner rubber coating to protect from scratches and aluminum casting for reinforced strength, the triangle-shaped lock is compatible with all standard T-bar cable locks.

The non-invasive Surface Tablet Lock slot can be quickly and easily installed on both the left or right side of the kickstand (and as easily removed). It requires no adhesives or alteration to the body of the Surface kickstand, and it does not affect any of the device’s functionalities. 

Microsoft’s Surface Pro lineup is often considered as the best business tablet range with gorgeous design and build quality. However, it doesn’t include any physical security feature. From now on, the Ledge Surface Pro/Go security lock slot adapter keeps them completely secure from theft.

#2 The Blade – Universal and smart

The Microsoft Surface Lock called The Blade can prevent physical tablet theft in public places, thus protecting the actual investment, private or work-related confidential information.

This smart Surface Pro Lock or Surface Go Lock System is compatible with all Surface models as it is an ultra-strong adhesive add-on that includes a retractable locking slot, which provides anti-theft protection by attaching it to a security lock cable for tablet.

By adhering the lock to the tablet, the lock can also be used as an ergonomic handgrip and provides an improved, more comfortable typing experience. The reinforced metal tab is capable of bearing in excess of 150 lb. of force!

The Blade has a minimalistic profile and sleek styling. What used to be a nerve-wracking feeling to set up a device in a café or shared workspace where everyone was a potential suspect is now a welcomed experience.

#3 The Universal Adhesive Security Plate

Quick and easy to set up, the Adhesive Security connector has a 3M VHB Bonding Tape. The tape allows the plate to be removed (with force and a special tool) that won’t damage the device or leave behind any residue.

The plate instantly provides a standard security slot to your mobile device that can now be protected with a standard T-bar keyed lock or combination cable lock. Once the adhesive bond is formed (recommended 10 hours) the plate will essentially be a permanent solution that allows securing Surface tablets. You can tether this lock to nearly any solid object via the loop end of the cable.

Universal Cable Locks for all Security

Whatever Surface tablet Security System you select, you must attach it with a cable lock that fits the highest standards. Tether the cable lock to a secure and immovable object and you’re done.

Opt for slim and cut-resistant Galvanized Steel Cable locks, creating an additional deterrent for tablet thieves. According to your preferences, you can select between the following options:  

  • keyed cable lock is a 6ft long straight security cable bearing a slim T-bar design lock and is secured with a small key.
  • The keyed coiled cable lock also has a Keyed T-Bar Style lock head, it’s a low-profile choice keeping all excess cabling tightly wound.
  • The combination cable lock is consisting of a 4-dial combination you can update anytime. It’s a great option when you’re afraid to lose your keys. 

All those theft-deterrent cables can be looped around a stationary object, like a desk or table.
