I double checked and there isn't master code for unlocking this type of security cable ...The only reason is either is defective due to a forced attempt ...or someone changed the combination ...Ask around and see if anybody else had access to the original combination ..cause only one that knew it was able t change it wile was locked...or if you left it in the unlocking position (with the combination on sight ..In case that it is damaged or the combination changed by mistake or by someone that wanted to do you harm ..the most likely to suspect are the people that knew the old combination ...
Anyway ...try to remember and pay attention and try again a few times the old combination ...If nothing works call a locksmith ..and try to pick it ..or cut the cable ...cause there is no way to do otherwise..

How to lock a keyboard


  1. Press the Windows logo key + U. This will open the ease of access center. Click on the keyboard icon. It will say, "make the keyboard easier to use" next to it. In some versions of Windows you will need to get to the option by pressing the left shift key five times rapidly.
  2. Select "turn on sticky keys" and "turn on filter keys." Select "save." Your computer will now only make sounds when the keyboard is hit.
  3. Follow steps 1 and 2 to unlock your keyboard. Unselect the "sticky keys" and "filter keys" and click on "save."
  4. Lock your workstation. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del. A blue screen or a box will pop up that has a variety of options, such as restart or shut down the computer. Click on "lock this computer."
  5. Lock your workstation using the keyboard. Press the Windows key and the L key at the same time. This will lock the computer. To unlock press the combination again.

Well, sometimes happens. Last week some "funny" guy (or girl) changed the code of my Defcon CL Laptop Lock and yes, usually a left my cable in unlock state, so he (she) had change this code, maybe he (she)...


An easy way? Yeah, sure, make it easy for thieves to bypass the security. :-)

On the average, you'll only have to try 5000 combinations, out of the possible 10 thousand. Or, buy/borrow a heavy-duty pair of bolt-cutters -- see: http://www.hand-tools.us/images/pictures/northern-industrial-18in-bolt-cutters.jpg

and cut away.

I have lost my instructions to unlock this TARGUS PA400C DEFCON 1 AUDIBLE NOTEBOOK ALARM (PA400C) Do you know where I can find what the default code is?


this may help

Due to the nature of security devices, there is no "magic unlock" code for the Defcon device. To recover a lost combination:

·Set the tumblers to the last known combination.

·While applying pressure to the red release button, rotate the tumblers up one digit and then down one digit on each of the individual tumblers.

·For Example: If your last know combination was 565

1.Set the tumblers to 565

2.Hold the red release button in and rotate the 1st tumbler to 6 so that the combination is now set to 665 (If this is the set combination the red release button will move in)

3.Hold the red release button in and rotate the 1st tumbler to 4 so that the combination is now set to 465

4.If not found move onto the 2nd tumbler and repeat step 1-3

5.If not found move onto the 3rd tumbler and repeat step 1-3
