Mhm…seems like a lot to carry around, but if it provides more safety…might consider if they ever produce more

Clever idea, sure, but not certain I would carry it around. Looks too bulky.

Campaign Info

 

The world is shifting to remote work.

“25% of all professional jobs in North America will be remote by the end of 2022, and remote opportunities will continue to increase through 2023.” (Ladders)

Where working remotely has its obvious advantages—no more time suck commutes, more flexibility, better work-life balance, and a reduced need for an office space. It does pose a challenge for workers who love to work from ‘anywhere’ including bustling coffee shops and crowded shared workspaces—laptop security.

While it’s easy to leave your office desk to grab lunch, answer nature’s call, or just get some blood pumping—when you’re working from ‘anywhere’ that’s not a liberty you can take.

Why?

A laptop is stolen every 53 seconds and costs US businesses over $5 Billion in losses.  (Gartner)

What’s worse is that monetary losses aren’t the only thing you need to worry about. According to CIO:

  • 56% of stolen computers result in a data breach 
  • 50% of IT managers don’t use full disk encryption (or turned off), so data is left to chance
  • 9 days is the average takes to get fully functional after a laptop is stolen/lost
  • 45% of all healthcare breaches came from a stolen or lost device

Most of the laptop thefts happen in public locations, such as airports, cafés, restaurants, and common shared spaces. So, if you’re digging that digital nomad life, or just working from anywhere—securing your laptop is more important than ever.

This is why we created LapLok.

The ultimate pocket-sized anti-theft device designed to conveniently secure your laptop any time, any place.

LapLok makes it easy for you to move around while working remotely because you know your device and data aren’t going anywhere—no matter how hard a thief might try.

LapLok Goes Wherever You Go

LapLok is strong, portable, lightweight, and extremely easy to use. It weighs just under a pound and is about the size of a smartphone, so you can easily slide it into your backpack and be on your way.

Works with all Laptops

LapLok can be easily attached to all laptops, it also fits all tables/working stations. Secure the lock’s arm plate on the base of your device, set your unique PIN, and lock the LapLok into place. And you’re done.

A 100-Decibel Optional Alarm Alerts You of Snatchers

If a snatcher attempts to steal your device, LapLok emits a 100-decibel alarm that alerts you and others around you of the theft. You can adjust the volume of the alarm as you see fit.   

 

No more Bulky Cable Ties 

 

It’s 2022. Stop using archaic anti-theft laptop solutions. Ditch the bulky cable tie that doesn’t even fit most laptops and get a LapLok—made to perfectly fit every laptop. 

Secure all Your Devices with the Productivity Bundle

Secure your bag with BagLok, just connect the loop to your LapLok device, and secures your bag seamlessly. You can also easily set up your mobile device with our phone holster as you work. 

 

A Closer Look at LapLok

LapLok has two main parts.

The mounting arm: This is what sticks to your laptop and helps secure your device when you’re working remotely

The LapLok device: This is where the magic happens. It’s where you enter your PIN and where the alarm sounds from

  2. Let that sit for 24 hours
  3. Go out to work wherever you want
  4. Find a good place to sit and swing out the adhesive mounting arm over the table
  5. Put the arm in the mouth of the LapLok device, adjust the device to the height of the table
  6. Press the [secure] button and consider your laptop secure
  7. When you’re done for the day, enter your PIN and unlock the device
  8. Store it in your bag for the next day
