(_cable_lock_)  --> laptop	(_card_swipe_lock) --> door from lobby to outer office
(_cable_lock_)  --> laptop	(_biometric_lock_) --> door into server room
(_cable_lock_)  --> laptop	(_safe_) --> USB sticks
(_cable_lock_)  --> laptop	(_locking_metal_cabinet_) --> WAP & Ethernet switch
(_cable_lock_)  --> laptop	(_captive_portal_) --> lobby
(_cable_lock_)  --> laptop	(_video_camera_) --> server room

Yes, you could argue that many of these should be somewhere else. But this is where CompTIA wants you to put these things.

Putting a WAP in a closed metal cabinet is the strangest of these. "Locking metal cabinet" means what I would call an equipment rack with a locking door.
