Cool video! If I see anyone using one of those locks I'd like to try that (merely in the interest of science of course)!

Favorite quote from the video: ...so actually you're militarizing the roll of toilet paper.
He's actually saying miniturizing...

Just after that misquote does he call the duct tape "ghetto" tape?

It sure sounds like he said ghetto tape . . . :)
That's some dark tape . . . Duck brand makes a lot of different colors, but I'm used to seeing the silver/grey variation.  Maybe it's just the lighting.

Anyway, that trick . . . doesn't say an awful lot for the locks.  I guess if you're going to use one, you have to hope would-be thiefs are more brutish and less clever.

gaffa/gaffer tape, probably, as that's what that kind of tape is called (at least in .dk).

But christ, that's shocking considering kensingtons reputation.

At "my" museum, we have a laptop in the main hall used for checking the shared calendar and some other misc. tasks. Sometimes the... uh... "person that sells ticket etc. to guests" has to leave it for a short while, so we have a kensington lock on it... :(
