Just remember to always lift the lock before pulling the kb cable, then it should not cause much wear on it. Some people just pull on the cable while it is locked and that will quickly destroy it.

Both the Lotharek and the Amipsu ones look good, however notice that the Amipsu does not seem to have an on/off switch, so you need to have this elsewhere, e.g. in your power strip.

It would have to be a substantial amount of money since he would need to hire someone to do it as far as I understand. If he could fix it himself, he'd probably have done so already.
