  • Pad way too thick, needed work

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    Similar to the other review, the pad that comes with it is over twice as thick as it should be for the lock adaptor to work proper Similar to the other review, the pad that comes with it is over twice as thick as it should be for the lock adaptor to work properly. I had to use an xacto knife to peel the pad off the metal and subsequently slice it in half so it would be much thinner. After reapplying the pad, tha adaptor fits properly but it is annoying to have to retrofit this small thing especially after spending almost $50 on it.

    This adapter consists of two steel pieces that are designed to fit together creating a slot for the nub of a laptop security cable This adapter consists of two steel pieces that are designed to fit together creating a slot for the nub of a laptop security cable. The problem is, there's a rubber piece inside designed to cushion the bottom lip of the Mac Pro's niche where the ports are. That rubber is far too tough, meaning in order to compress the two pieces together enough so that the security cable can fit into the slot, you need a pair of strong pliers, or incredibly strong fingers. Two adults were unable to put this together by hand using one person to press the 2-piece adapter together with both hands and one to insert the security cable. And the attempts created permanent damage on the underside of the (new) Mac Pro, where the metal of the adapter digs into the enclosure of the Mac Pro by design. I was able to make the adapter work with a pair of locking pliers (significantly scratching the adapter), and that’s why this is a 2-star review and not lower. Now whenever I work away from home I have to have the pliers with me or I won’t be able to lock or unlock my computer. I expect better from Apple.
