Griffin Debuts TechSafe Locking System and New Tablet Stands for CES

Desktop solutions for laptops and tablets

Nashville, TN — January 6, 2011 — Griffin Technology Inc., maker of innovations for everyday life, today announced for CES 2011 an assortment of accessories for the thinking person's desktop. Griffin announced the new TechSafe Locking System; and three new stands for iPad and other tablet devices: Xpo, Wedge, and Arrowhead. The entire array of new accessories is on display beginning today in the Griffin booth, #4727 in the iLounge Pavilion, North Hall LVCC.

TechSafe Cable Lock
Like a bike lock for your laptop, Griffin's TechSafe Cable Lock combines the best of both security and mobility. In the office or on the road, TechSafe ensures that your laptop stays where you put it. TechSafe's unique curved steel security blade slides into place scratch-free and secure, through the hinge on your laptop. The patented security blade is unobtrusive in use, without hindering access to your laptop's ports and connectors. And TechSafe protects whether the laptop is open or closed.

Secure the 4-digit combination lock around the security blade to lock down the laptop without hampering your ability to work. Loop the tempered five-foot (1.5 meter) locking cable around a table leg, chair, or other immoveable object, and your laptop isn't going anywhere until you say so. When you're ready to hit the road, coil and secure the cable with the included cable strap. TechSafe Cable Lock is perfect for any laptop that doesn't include a built-in security anchor hole, or whenever you want a low-key, high-security option for protecting your machine.

TechSafe Clamp
Cable-based laptop security systems depend on a sturdy, secure anchor point to ensure your laptop doesn't sprout legs and walk away. Now, no matter where you use your laptop, the Griffin TechSafe Clamp provides that vital anchor point.

A unique ball is at the heart of the TechSafe Clamp system. Tighten it to adjust the Clamp to tables, shelves, desks or flat surfaces up to 1.8" (45 mm) thick. Slide the ball upward and thread your security cable through the middle of the ball before locking it to your laptop. Now the ball is locked out, unable to loosen the clamp until you're ready to release it. The TechSafe Clamp is designed for use with Griffin's TechSafe Cable Lock system, but it will with other cable lock systems and devices, as well.

Compact, portable, useful, and very cool-looking. Arrowhead universal stand for tablets uses two weighted "feet" to create a stable platform for using your tablet. Rubber pads provide a no-skid grip for both your desktop and your tablet, in portrait or landscape orientation. Generously sized notches, also lined with grippy rubber inserts, accommodate most tablets up to 10 inches. Arrowhead is case-friendly, too. When you're ready to go, connect the bases; internal magnets hold the two halves together so you can slip Arrowhead into a pocket or small corner of your bag.

Wedge is a universal tablet stand that folds flat into a profile as small as a cigarette case. The Wedge is made of durable aluminum and cleverly designed to lock in 3 different positions. Just squeeze the hinge to lock and unlock at the desired angle. The Wedge's rock-steady construction features padded, non-slip surfaces to hold your tablet securely in horizontal or vertical orientations. Flip the foot-grip back into Wedge's profile and it steadies your tablet at a low incline perfect for input and navigation. Add its own storage sheath, and the Griffin Wedge is the versatile and elegant stand your tablet deserves.

A compact, space-saving stand for tablet-style devices, the Griffin Xpo stand folds flat into a profile smaller than a pair of sunglasses. You'll want to slip it into your pocket and take it everywhere your tablet goes. Made of durable aluminum, Xpo features padded non-slip surfaces for your tablet. Its comforting embrace adjusts to fit large and small tablet devices, horizontally or vertically. And it steadies your tablet in a low-inclined angle perfect for input and navigation.
