How to Use:

  1. Insert the Anchor into the 3.5mm headphone jack of your Surface Laptop.
  2. Attach your cable lock to the newly created lock slot.

This setup ensures that your Surface Laptop remains firmly anchored, deterring opportunistic theft in public or semi-public spaces such as cafes, libraries, and shared workspaces.
