    The PNY ThinkSafe family of products includes the Laptop Locking System, the MacBook Locking System, and the Security Clamp.

    Patented Hinge-Link technology, utilizing a hinge-locking design, is the fundamental security feature that makes PNY ThinkSafe Locking Systems one-of-a-kind. With four distinct custom-shaped Hinge-Links, constructed of hardened stainless steel and based on a device's varying hinge configuration, PNY offers a simple solution that is extremely secure and versatile. Each one uniquely fits through the hinge of your laptop in seconds to easily secure your device -- in any environment to conveniently safeguard virtually any laptop. As the hinge of a laptop is an incredibly strong point and is easily accessible, consumers can have peace-of-mind that their device is secured properly. The included step-by-step quick-start guide will help users simply identify which Hinge-Link works best with their system. Additionally, the patented PNY ThinkSafe Locking System is the only hinge-locking solution available today to safely and securely lock the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina display.

    The patent-pending Slot-Link by PNY is a cast steel constructed mechanism that connects to a laptop's security slot in seconds. Slot-Link offers consumers a convenient way to lock any laptop device utilizing the existing slot integrated into the body of many devices today.

    Each of the PNY Locking Systems comes with a 6 foot carbon steel cable with built-in combination lock and factory installed 4-digit pin for the ultimate security. The combination lock fits snugly into all of the PNY Hinge-Links and the Slot-Link. A convenient travel pouch is also included, for the utmost in portability.

    "PNY is excited to bring a revolutionary new approach to physical laptop security, providing class leading theft deterrence and moving away from the limitations of the 3mm x 7mm security slot. Laptops continue to become thinner and more elegant, with Apple leading the charge, resulting in a number of manufacturers eliminating the security slot and as a result there exists a need for a new improved method to attach a cable lock to a laptop," said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager, for PNY. "PNY has focused on providing a solution that is compatible with more makes and models of laptop computers than other manufacturers and developed an easy-to-use solution to help combat laptop theft. We are very excited to offer a simple, secure & unique solution for the MacBook Air, which does not have a security slot."

  4. My security pin for my laptop is right. But it says my device is locked by an administrator

    This device has been locked for security reasons.

    Just making sure you have done the following:

    Unlock your Windows 10 phone remotely

    • Try unlocking your Windows 10 device remotely if you get this message: "This device has been locked for security reasons. Connect your device to a power source for at least two hours and then try again." The key is to reset your PIN through
      account.microsoft.com. If you use remote unlock, your logon PIN will be protected by Windows instead of your device's security system.
      1. Go to
        account.microsoft.com.
      2. Sign in with the same Microsoft account you use on the phone.
      3. Click the Find my phone link.
      4. Press Lock.
      5. Enter a new PIN. Now you'll be able to unlock your phone with your new PIN.
    • To go back to having your logon PIN protected by your device’s security system, make sure the device has been on for at least 2 hours. Go to
      Settings Gear-shaped Settings icon > Accounts >
      Sign-in options page and select "I forgot my PIN". Enter your Microsoft account info, verify your identity, and set the PIN for the device.
