How to Open a Laptop Lock

A laptop lock is similar to a bike lock, in that the cabled lock is designed to keep your laptop computer in one place (such as a desk or table). However, if you do not have the key to the lock, you need to find a way to unlock the device, if you want to take the laptop with you. To do so, you may use a few easily accessible tools to unlock your laptop's lock.
