I'm looking for a way to physically lock the USB port on our PC's and laptops to specifically block users from pluggining in any USB storage.  We're not looking for a software solution.  This is the product we are looking for or something very similar to it: (

ThinkGeek no longer sells this product, unfortunately.  Any suggestions on where I can get this product (and with bulk blanks)?

    I saw that one, but it's not cost effective and it's not low profile like the "blanks".

    I think I found what I'm looking for and in different colors.  They also sell blanks in packs of 10.  This is esp. good for locking usb ports on laptops without any protrusions.  My client has been looking for this solution for a while.

    From the UK only though.
