Not to be confused with lockout chip used to prevent unlicensed games from running, 10NES.

The NES Lockout was a combination lock device made by SafeCare Products, Inc. and Master Lock that featured a "Self-Setting" combination that attached to the open bay of a front-loading NES via a hole under the control deck directly below the chamber lid which enabled the lock to grab the console like a vise to prevent removal. The device was intended to allow parents to keep children from playing an NES when they weren't supposed to.
