  • Patent number: 4007613
    Abstract: A security device for protecting equipment such as typewriters, calculators and the like, comprises a base member having a hole through which the shank of a bolt passes through a mounting body and into the frame or housing of the equipment to be protected, the head of the bolt being held at a seat within the base member. A protective envelope has an end member positioned to be juxtaposed to, and cover, a portion of the base member around the seat to prevent access to the bolt head. The end member has a threaded hole through it communicating with the bolt head, and a lock body having a barrel with a threaded protruding neck which engages the threaded hole, fits within a hollow shank of the protective member. The lock body contains a number of transversely slidable locking blades which resiliently protrude from the barrel to engage spline stops of the shank when in the normal locked position.
