Yoga 500-14IBD - Kensington slot unusable - compatibility?

Dear community,

 

 I've just bought a Yoga 500, which seems to be a very nice tablet/notebook.

 

However, my old (standard) Kensington locks simply don't work! These are the classic T-head locks. 

The key cannot be turned.

 

I've just tried a HP UltraSlim lock, which has a different type of head, but it is also unusable, the lock cannot be activated (the push button cannot be pushed in enough to activate the lock)

This is the cable:

Is there a compatible security cable for this machine at all?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Morden , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Based on the specification for the Yoga 500-14IBD :

Cable security for ultra-thin devices  : Kensington MiniSaver cable lock slot (item9 page 76

 

Other options for designs without proper lock slots discussed here.

 

Hope this helps answer your query. 

 

Regards

Thanks mate for the quick reply!

Looks promising, the head of this lock seems to expand sideways.

I'll try to get one of these.
Thanks again!!!
