When you purchase something like Apple’s Mac Pro, keeping it safe is a necessary step, even if that means you have to lock it down like a bike on a rack. Apple has made that easier for anyone who owns a Mac Pro, thanks to an official security lock adapter.
The lock adapter itself is simple enough: a metal bracket that secures the lift-off cover of the machine to the base with a security cable. This means that thieves will have a harder time getting into the mini-tower’s internals. Securing the cable to something heavy, or even a dedicated object on a desk or floor adds that extra benefit of having the Mac Pro locked down.
Here’s the product description from Apple:
“The Mac Pro Security Lock Adapter lets you use a compatible Kensington or similar style third-party lock (sold separately) to keep your Mac Pro secure. The adapter attaches without tools and does not modify or damage the Mac. With a compatible lock connected, the Mac Pro Lock Adapter secures the housing to the enclosure, preventing access to internal components.“The Mac Pro Security Lock Adapter is listed for $49.99.
