Stops you not others
 
Do not get this lock...there are other brands that work much better. This one pretty much acts like a visual deterance to would be thieves, sort of like those steering wheel locks. You can easily cut the cable and eventually you can't unlock it which would be good if you didn't use your laptop for what its meant for...portability. Pass on it.

WORST Lock ever
 
I bought this lock to provide some security for my laptop at my work desk. After a few months of use, the lock reset itself and stuck in my laptop. A pair of cheap wire cutters was able to cut the cable from my desk with one snap, so I was able to at least take my laptop home (so much for protecting it from theives). I contacted Targus about the product and they are aware of the problem with the lock and have an official form of how to get your lock off which includes the suggestions of systemat...

Great Tripod!
 
Ive had this tripod for a couple of months now and I really like it. Its not too complicated and is easy to set up. It fastens your camera down nice and snug so you dont have to worry about it falling off. The tripod also has nifty little built in levels that help you make sure your camera is straight. I definitely would recommend this product if you looking for a decent tripod on a tight budget.

What a piece of junk
 
I am going to a seminar and it's not that I don't trust the hotel staff or my fellow seminar goers, but thought someone might like my new macBook more than me and help themselves to it.

Would Not Recommend
 
Daughter used at college daily for around six months. Went to unlock one day and would not unlock.Unit no longer recognized combination. I had to cut cable WITH LITTLE TROUBLE using pliers.Took home and tried to unlock with no luck. After researching and testing methods I had to hack saw the unit from the lap top.

Ignore the bad reviews!
 
The only bad reviews you will find are from self proclaimed "Videographers". Any legit videographer would not consider this tripod in the first place and spend the extra cash on a Ball-Mount or Fluid-Mount tripod. For photography this is a GREAT tripod&x21 And for those supposed videographers it is called "You get what you pay for" so next time go to B&H Photo or other professional video retailer for a proper video tripod.

Combination mysteriously changed
 
I had been using the lock for my laptop for the past 4 months without any trouble. All of a sudden, today, as I went to pick up the lock, which had been left untouched in the open position overnight with my combination in it, it decided to change combinations by itself. So it was in the locked position but the combination is still the one I had set. I tried so many combinations 'around' mine but obviously there are so many different possibilites. The fact that I even have to try to think of what...

Changing Combos
 
I am a student living in a dorm situation and so wanted some basic protection for my lap top computer. I purchased the defcon cl because it was inexpensive, widely availible, and easy to use. Unfortunately, it has one major drawback, occasionally it decides to change the number combinationss which unlock it. I went to the company website and they suggested trying the numbers immediately around the combination and if that failed trying all the number combinations possible (there are 10,000). ...

Easy Break
 
Easy to break (and yes it's this lock model). 4 numbers 1 at base 4 being farthest. Hold button and turn dial 3 and 4, if 3 has no friction, turn 4 one notch and repeat until dial 3 turns like 4. Then do the same with the second and third dials, then the first and second. Lock broken in 2 minutes or less. Or just grab and snap it perpendicular to the laptop and it'll pop right out with almost now sound. I shimmied it out in 5 seconds.

Don't Buy "d
 
on Jan.6,2008 I bought my son a "Defcon CL" combo cable lock. I brought it home ,picked a combination and tried it 3 times and it worked all 3 times!! I then went and put it on my son's computer and guess what? I can't get it off. I guess it changed the combination on it's own. WONDERFUL!!!!I then read all the wonderful reviews about this lock. I hope there are people who will read this before they buy.
