CPU Security Lock


"Keep your computer systems locked and secure with our lock for computer cases. Simply replace one or more of the standard case screws with our case lock to keep unauthorized personnel from tampering with computer systems, removing peripheral cards, etc." 


One lock and one key: $2.39.

This has two uses:

1.) Blame avoidance ("we locked the computers up...it's not our fault").

2.) Serious pranksterism - replace someone else's tower case screw (serious gamers still use *big* towers) then keep the key.

Be sure your victim is someone who doesn't recognize that you could take one of these off with a pair of pliers and a little duct tape (for traction).

(A) How many of us still use "tower" computers; and,
(2) If somebody wanted access to a "tower" box, wouldn't they just take the thing and deal with the funny little bolt at their leisure? I'd just put the tower into a recycling bin and roll it out of the place in plain view.
