Title: Anti theft device for laptop computer

Abstract: A security device for securing a laptop computer to a support member such as a desk top. The security device includes a rigid first securing member having back, side and front restraining members defining an elongate opening through which the monitor portion of the laptop computer can be slidably received when the laptop computer is in an open position. A leg extends from the first securing member for insertion through a predetermined hole provided through the desk top. The security device includes a lock device for engaging a portion of the leg that has been inserted through the hole and for engaging the lower surface of the desk top to prevent separation of the first securing member from the desk top when the lock device is locked. When the key board portion is located on the upper surface of the support member, the monitor portion is slidably received within the rigid first securing member and the leg is inserted through the hole and engaged by the lock device, the rigid first securing member restrains movement of the laptop computer lateral to and upward from the upper surface of the desk top. A second securing member can be interlocked with the rigid first securing member in order to secure a closed laptop computer to the desk top.
