Interesting.  It appears to be back in stock.

That being said, it is a Noble Lock TZ08, can be found on most etailers websites like amazon and newegg by just looking up "tz08"

Hi,

I've noticed many people are confused about what security lock is needed for the Dell Inspirion 15" 7000 2-in-1 Model

The Correct and fitting Security Cable for The Dell Inspirion 15" 7000 2-in-1 modelis A NobleLocks Wedge Security Lock. It is smaller than the standard universal lock and hence fits in the smaller wedgeslot dells has adopted in most of its devices.

Okay, I've been informed that the security slot has been modified to fit the Noble Lock.

The Correct and fitting Security Cable for The Dell Inspirion 15" 7000 2-in-1 model is A NobleLocks Wedge Security Lock.

Dell has adopted a new smaller more delicate security slot for most of its products and most of the inspiron models.

This new security slot is a wedge slot and can thus only be secured with noble wedge security locks.

Hope this helps, thanks John.

Regards,
Robert

Thanks for the links to Kensington locks, Robert, but Kensington Customer Care informs me "Unfortunately Dell did not include a Kensington Security Slot or a Kensington Mini Slot in this device,  which is required for our locks to be attached. " The documentation for the Inspiron 15 7558 says the slot is a "Noble slot." The Noble locks website offers no ability to contact their sales personnel, and the products they have posted that relate to Dell do NOT mention compatibility with the Inspiron 15 7000 series. Therefore I ask again, what cable lock can I use with my Inspiron 15 7558 2-in-1 laptop, with its tiny security slot?

Fabulous, but when I click the link to Dell you were kind enough to provide, I see a "sold out" message and no clue concerning what the item actually is.  Could you please provide the make and model and I will try to purchase it from another retailer.  Thanks so much!

I am currently on the Amazon site, & there is conflicting information regarding WHICH lock is compatible with the the Dell Inspiron 7000 Series 2-in-1.

Will you please confirm which one (if any) is currently available on Amazon or another site?

Many thanks!

Hi jbeeker543,

The standard security cable lock will secure this model.  Just put the lock in slot #1 as shown above.

I recently purchased an Inspiron 15 7000 series 2-1 for son and cannot find a cable lock for it.  after buying and returning many lock types I just called Dell and they suggested the Dell Premium Keyed Lock (# 332-1672). Going by the responses to this forum, I suspect that lock won't work either. I am at a loss. Is the correct lock for this laptop the "Noble Security Wedge Profile Lock - for Tablets and Ultrabooks" - http://accessories.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04&sku=A6451164#Overview?
