HOW TO: Homemade Lenovo 730 Yoga Anti-Theft Cables and Lock System

  1. Step 1: Creating the Chain of Cables to Lock Yoga 730 to a Table Leg or Desk Leg so Bad People Can’t Run Off with your Yoga 730.

 

  1. Take 3 of the 4 Lumintrail Cables and Chain these Three Cables Together.
    1. Take Cable 1 and Thread one of the Loop Ends of Cable 2 through one of the Loop Ends of Cable 1. Take the Other Loop End Cable 2 and Thread that Loop End into the Loop End of Cable 2 that you Threaded through the Loop End of Cable 1. Pull Cable 1 and Cable 2 to tighten the Link Chain between Cable 2 and Cable 1.

 

  1. Take Cable 3 and Thread One of the Loop Ends of Cable 3 through the Free Loop End of Cable 2 (that is not chained to Cable 1). Pull Cable 2 and Cable 3 to tighten the Link Chain between Cable 2 and Cable 3.

 

  1. Take Cable 4 and Thread one of the Loop Ends of Cable 4 through the Free Loop End of Cable 3 (that is not chained to Cable 2). Match the two Loop Ends of Cable 4 together around the Leg of a Table or your Desk and Lock the two Loop Ends of Cable 4 Together with the Travel Sized Master Combination Lock.

  1. Step 2: Securing your Lenovo Yoga 730 to the Cable Chain with 2 TR Industrial Black Plastic 8 inch Cable Zip Ties.

 

  1. Start with 2 TR Industrial Black Plastic 8 inch Cable Zip Ties. Note that One Side of each Cable Zip Tie is Smooth and the Other Side is Textured and Ridged. Notice also that One End of each Zip Tie is Tapered and Pointed and the Other End has a Slot.

 

  1. Open the Cover of the Yoga 730 so that it is Perpendicular to the Keyboard. Then Tilt the Cover Forward Slightly at about a 15 Degree Angle. Note the Opening Space of each of the 2 Yoga 730 Cover Hinges.

 

  1. Face the Textured and Ridged Side Up of each Cable Zip Tie. From the Back of the Cover of the Yoga, Thread the Tapered End a Cable Zip Tie (Textured Ridged Side Up) through the Opening Space of each of the 2 Yoga Cover Hinges. Thread each Tapered End through the Slot on the Other End of the Cable Zip Tie until you hear a Slight Clicking indicating that the Zip Tie is Locked In. You now have 2 Loops created by the 2 Black Cable Zip Ties to use to Lock your Yoga 730 to your Table or Desk.

  1. Step 3: Locking your Yoga 730 to a Table or Desk with Anti Theft Chained Cables.

 

  1. Thread the Free Unattached Loop End of Cable 1 through the First Zip Tie Loop Behind the Computer Screen on the Cover Side and then through the Second Zip Tie Loop Behind the Computer Screen on the Cover Side going across the Yoga Computer Cover pulling a length of Chained Cables through the 2 Zip Tie Loops so that the Unattached Loop End of Cable 1 can reach the Master Lock locking the two Loop Ends of Cable 4 to the Table or Desk Leg.

 

  1. Open the Travel Sized Master Combination Lock with the Master Lock still Locking the two Loop Ends of Cable 4, add the Unattached Loop End of Cable 1 to the Master Lock and then Lock the Master Lock so that the two Cable 4 Loop Ends and the Cable 1 Loop End are now Locked Together around the Table or Desk Leg. Your Yoga 730 is Now Locked to your Table or Desk .

 

  1. Step 4: Releasing your Cable Locked Yoga 730.
    1. Time to Leave! Release your Cable Locked Yoga 730. Cut the Black Zip Ties with a pair of Sharp Craft Scissors from Westcott or other similar brand. Throw the Cut Zip Ties in the Rubbish. Unlock the Master Lock and stow away the Cables and Other Equipment.
