Fig.2 Security Cable lock with a built-in memory

Fig.2 is an equipment which contains the USB memory function inside the security wire lock.

By having a memory function inside, anyone without the lock key cannot access the memory and also cannot steal the locked device.

This is realized by the following mechanism of the lock head of the security wire lock, as shown in Fig. 3.
(1) Memory segment of the USB memory device is placed inside the lock head.
(2) USB port is placed on the surface of the lock head.
(3) Electric circuit which connects (1) and (2) inside.
(4) Internal disk which rotates in tandem with the T-Bar. This constitutes a part of Electric circuit(3).
