Apple quietly introduced a new security lock adapter for the late-2013 Mac Pro today, making it available on its online store with shipping times of 24 hours.
The Mac Pro Security Lock Adapter lets you use a compatible Kensington or similar style third-party lock (sold separately) to keep your Mac Pro secure. The adapter attaches without tools and does not modify or damage the Mac.

The security lock adapter enables users to physically secure a Mac Pro via an attachment at the bottom side of the desktop. As stated in Apple’s description, the adapter is compatible with most standard Kensington or similar lock products.
