Yea but if you lose the key you just take the side of the pc and short the wires. That's what i'd do if i wanted to break into a PC with a key switch

That key isn't really any kind of security though, those keys are all the same, if someone has one just like it, they can get into your pc. Just put a password on your pc, that will stop people from getting into it.

I'm with Tommy Boy on this one. Anyone can open up your computer and short the keyswitch. It would take 5-10 seconds!

Put a password on your BIOS and your OS.

It beats a keyswitch anyday.
