We have TWO websites, where you can review and purchase our products: LocDown.com and AnchorPad.com. Either website communicates directly with the BMS sales department when you place an order. Some of our long-time customers prefer to use the AnchorPad.com website to make purchases; but LocDown.com lists some of our newer products and has the most up-to-date information.

BMS and AnchorPad lock-down products are designed generally with a pick resistant, screw in key lock, preventing unauthorized movement of equipment. Some of our low-profile products use cam locks. When mobility is needed, our cable systems are the best in the industry utilizing the same screw in key lock, allowing the customer to integrate a keyed alike system across our product lines.  Our products are designed to be versatile enough to secure many different types of equipment. So every time you change machines, there is no need to reinvest in another security device.  Ease of access is important for maintenance, mobility and key control. With our systems, any authorized person with a key can easily unlock our device to allow for quick and easy access to the equipment. All of our security systems are easy to install.

In 2013, Business Machine Security acquired AnchorPad, a long time competitor with a great line of complementary products. For over 40 years, AnchorPad has supplied customers with high quality anti-theft products.  Engineered quality and time-tested performance has gone into every AnchorPad design, and that legacy continues today.  A full range of security is available through the AnchorPad product line, including; Cable Kits, Plate Locdown Systems and Full-steel Enclosures.  AnchorPad’s anti-theft products are versatile, secure, and easy to use, and the Plate Systems cause no damage to surfaces when removed by an authorized user. AnchorPad’s product line can now be fully integrated with any of Business Machine Security’s products and utilize the keyed alike system, making Business Machine Security the largest and most versatile electronics anti-theft company in America.
