1:0 Me, vs Kensington lock!

Okay guys, I prudly annouce that I've opened my lock without key! (part I and part II). I've opened it some time ago, but I wanted to make a nice photo, so I've asked my friend and.. here it is:


This blue thing is a closing part of a cheap pen, it fitted well. The method was very similar as in the video in my first post about problem - I just inserted it, my friend was holding a laptop and I just spinned it and pushed like hell. Unfortunately I've broke the lock, because I am unable to insert the key (in case if I find it :P) because this mechanism is blocking this little hole on right.

So.. if you lose your key, use pens around the house and open it :D


Edit: I decided to post full sized photo, because it's (in my opinion) masterpiece of security photoart ;)  HERE

  10. Hah, this wasn't easy as in the vid, it took me several hours to take it off.

    I was ABLE to lock pick this, but I believe that casual thief wouldn't play with it so long, so I consider Kensigton lock as a secure way to protect the laptop.

  16. Haha, well said:D

    Actually, there are many tips on the Internet how to do this. This is just another proof.

    I've wondered if it is possible to get a spare key from Kensington, but one must know key ID, which is embedded on the key itself. If you didn't write it down somewhere, you have to look for a hacking device like a pen.

  18. So cut cable, take everything, remove lock with pen at hideout? Or does the pen method have to be done on the spot. Just curious :)

  19. The cable doesn't have anything to do with pen method. You can cut cable and lock pick it at home, but you need to bring with yourself some tools to cut it.

  26. Awesome post..As a human we can not remember so many things.Some time it is possible that we forget where we keep our keys .Reason is that may be we are too busy. lock picking is important skill set for such people. People can open locked chests and doors without any damage.
