Could you tell me if the loop end opens so that you could thread it through a hole in the worktop otherwise how is it best secured?
No, the loop end looks to be crimped such that it cannot be opened, so will not fit through a hole that's smaller than the ferrule. However, the loop and its ferrule would easily fit through a typical cable hole in a desk such that it can loop back through a nearby hole or edge and self-threaded before locking to the device. If the hole is big enough to fit the lock end, which is the case for a typical cable hole, then it is neater to first self-thread the loop round a bar underneath the desk then thread the lock through the cable hole. For desks without bars or other holes underneath, a leg /might/ be suitable if you consider the length of the cable, the diagonal distance between the hole and leg foot, and that the device to be locked does not fit through the hole.
