1. A lock box comprising:
a base plate;
a back cover mounted to the base plate, the back cover including a first internal compartment;
a connector configured to connect the lock box to an object, the connector including a first end and a second end, the first end of the connector being mounted within the first internal compartment, and the second end of the connector being selectively retained within the first internal compartment, wherein the second end of the connector includes an inlet;
a retention mechanism coupled to the base plate and including an opening for receiving the second end of the connector, the retention mechanism being configured to rotate between an unlatched and a latched position to selectively retain the second end of the connector; and
a front cover coupled to the base plate, the front cover being movable between a closed position and an open position, wherein when the front cover is in the closed position, engagement between the front cover and the retention mechanism restricts movement of the retention mechanism between the latched position and the unlatched position.
