Kensington has announced the release of the first security lock designed for ultra-thin systems. The NanoSaver Keyed Laptop Lock has a head of only 10mm, and is making its debut in the HP Pro x2 2-in-1.

Theft of office computers is nearly as common as theft from cars, and actually is more frequent than theft from airports, hotels, and restaurants, according to Kensington. With those statistics, it's no wonder that more and more computers are compatible with locking technology. However, tablets, convertibles, and some other ultra-thin devices were too slim to fit a security slot—until now, that is. Kensington has created a NanoSaver Keyed Laptop Lock specifically for thin devices.

The lock head measures only 10mm and attaches to the security slot on the laptop. The cable is carbon steel, measures 6 feet, and is designed to resist any attempts at cutting. The NanoSaver lock comes in both single head and dual head configurations, which means one lock can attach to more than one device. At the moment, HP's x2 Pro 2-in-1 convertible is the first device to integrate the new NanoSaver slot, but more are sure to follow suit. 

The release also marks the 25th anniversary of the laptop lock. Kensington invented the first laptop lock in 1992 and have since sold over 20 million.
