Desk Security

Here's some great desk security for ya... Anyone notice a little problem with how this desk that my brother just bought was built?

Desk with drawers in

Desk with drawers out

Come on, really... Why even have a lock at all?

Update

Looks like Adam's had enough and gotten serious about security! ;)

Wellllll, a lot of criminals are pretty dim-witted and wouldn't think of that, but even so, your brother probably should've added a lock to the top two drawers.

Haha, no there isnt really a point to this, I mean like c'mon, and BTW is that your white plain box(case) beside the "security" system.

I have something similar to that setup in my desk, but it is actually secure, because both the drawyer have a lock, but if someone were really detirmed to get into my drawer full of computer part boxes(kinda pointless really) then they could go under the desk and just knock out the thing wood panel.

I am somewhat disapointed with the level of security that companies provide nowadays! Anyways Im starting to ramble so I will cut this comment off... :)

Jason - the point is, this is how the desk came when he bought it, useless lock and all.

How old is your brother? :)

This desk reminds me of Windows: Nice looking, but insecure. Hey, he can sell these anc call them "Desk XP"!

Haha.. that is awesome. You should call the company and ask what the hell they were thinking.

Your brother is 19? I've always placed you around 19-21.. how old are you anyways?

Don't they have stoppers so you can't slide the thing all the way out?

I'm not sure, but are you knocking my computer? If not, you wanna buy it?

As for the desk, I probably wouldn't have even put the lock in had it not been for the fact that there would be a huge hole in the front of my desk if I didn't. I wasn't sure that was a good option...

Hahaha! Omfg! Of course, I'm not laughing at Adam. I'm just laughing at the people that made such a desk. The person that drew up the plans for this must have been drunk as hell or something lol! Everyone, this desk and the maker's of this desk deserves a standing ovation! Bravo! Bravo!! Haha..ok...I'm done...going back to drinking my mad dog 20/20 strawberry kiwi now...

This is the kind of security where you leave the keys dangling from the lock. It's not designed to repel the determined, only to deter the snoop.

Ok, enough is enough. I decided that this desk just wasn't going to cut it how it was, so it was time to get dirty.

That's what I'm talking about!

1.6Ghz, 1GB RAM, CD-RW, decent video card/sound card, and lots of hard drive space that's not included. Let me know where to ship.

Jason, I did build the desk... from the pieces out of the box from Office Max.

No no no... I thought you built the desk from scratch, not from a manual :P

If Adam ends up selling his computer through my site, I'd better get a commission! ;)

Hey Ryan,
Here after a very long time.

I had a desk in my old office almost like the one Adam has assembled. The way it worked was that if you lock the bottom cabinet, you couldn't open the middle or the top drawers.

I'm just guessing, but yes, it would. There's a difference between running it, and running it well though... No offence to Adam's glorificous PC of course.
