Took me a few minutes to work that one out when I got one.

You thread the wire through the water cooling ports o nthe back of your case if yo uhave them free then the wire through its own little loop like a lassoo attachign the free end to the monitor. Or you can padlock the loop on one end to your PC if it has the little metal tab with a hole in sticking out on your case side. If you are extra worried and have new components such as GFX card then buy a set of smooth case screws with special shaped alen key thing to undoo them with so ppl cant open your case.

I don't think thats what he meant dash, he meant the other end. You need something solid to attach it to, if you put it on the table leg, then the leg can just be lifted and the lock can be slid of the bottom. Will depend on the tables, but will be pretty funny if there isn't anything secure to lock anything to!

Pretty sure at I39 i put my kensington lock around the hinge on the table, as the tables are all of the fold up kind theres a few gaps that it can only be slipped through if they unlock it or unscrewed the table to bits.

No no, Im pretty sure I understand what he meant. I meant for him to loop it through the pc rather than round the table leg.

Oh I see, your saying just tie your monitor and case together. Surely you can then just take both, oh well, we'll see when we get there. I still think we should fly scorp in and in return he must guard our pcs day and night, cowaring under the desks, as some sort of security troll type being, ready to jump out and hit with carrots any pie keys. But then I might just be bored at work..

Considering we never bothered lockign them at all in the past at Newbury I think its pretty unlikely anyone will try and take a pc wit ha monitor dangline off it and again you still have the security stickers to remember. They'd have to steal your security pass too in order to get past the security people.

Fer locking up PC just find a loop or something you can put a padlock thru to stop the side panel being removed, then kensington lock from monitor thru padlock and round the table leg hinge. Usually the tables have a metal brack/hinge to loop thru so no sliding off... they'd have to carry the whole table out.
No matter what you do with the rest of your life, you'll never be as cool as a bull-riding monkey!

Solution to headphones issue. There are also 9 keys so we can all have access to the box.

It can fit a g15 no problems for when i'm heading up so consider valuables locked up :D.

I'll be bike locking it to the table.

How can it not be the same without me? I've never been there, and I've only been in London (and therefore UK) once in my life?
