DELL Latitude - Wedge-shape security lock

Latitude 7340

Latitude 7340

I ordered a DELL Latitude 7340 via my employer. This laptop has "Eine keilförmige Vorrichtung für Sicherheitsschloss". This nonsense translation actually means the Wedge-shaped lock slot.

There is no specification which exact kind of lock this is for the 7340. I ordered the only option I had: the Dell Kensington Clicksafe NB Lock (DELL CLICKSAFE 2.0 KEYES LAPTOP LOCK O6DK21). Neither of the two delivered Wedge-Shaped Anchors fits, both are too big. If I try to apply it, all that happens is that the laptop gets damaged (scratched).

What is the fitting anchor specification for this lock? And where can I order it?

It turned out that the lock and the attached Wedge-Shaped Anchor adapter are the correct ones. The "NB" on the sticker stands for Noble (how obvious [Fe]).

But: The manual is insufficient. You need to apply the tool first to the anchor and unscrew it a little bit. Afterwards the anchor may be attached to the laptop.

Though, it is a little wobbly, even with the provided shims.

(Our service specialist helped me.)
