Product Spotlight: Kensington Lock and Tether

Tailwind are proud to announce the release of our new custom Kensington MicroSaver ® lock and tether for payment technology, designed for when extra security is required.

Tailwind has worked with Kensington - the world leader for IT security - to develop a custom, tamper proof lock and tether that ensures any payment terminal with a Kensington slot can be securely tethered to all our Tailwind stands.

Standard lock and tether devices usually require an anchor point to be fixed to or under the counter or cash desk. Not only can this be difficult to install and look untidy at the point of sale, long security cables running up and over the counter can get entangled with point of sale displays and make it awkward to pass the card reader to customers when required.KensingtonFeature

With Tailwind’s custom Kensington MicroSaver ® lock and tether, however, the tamper proof lock fits into the Kensington slot on your payment terminal and the tether is anchored to the stand, so there are no awkward additional anchors to install around your Point of Sale.

The coiled tether is designed to stretch easily whenever the payment terminal needs to be released from the stand and handed to a customer, and is attached to the stand via a gimbal that pivots and rotates to give totally free movement in all directions.

When the payment terminal is replaced in the stand, the tether coil contracts neatly out of the way.

All Tailwind’s point of sale mounting solutions are PCI DSS compliant. The addition of our custom Kensington MicroSaver ® lock and tether will provide added peace of mind where extra security is needed.
