Other advocates of lockerless schools also cite reasons such as reducing noise by eliminating the clang of dozens of locker doors, or creating a more appealing environment aesthetically. It has also been claimed that removing lockers provides good training for students by forcing them to be more efficient in managing their books, and taking the time to plan what books they will need, and carrying only those ones.

They're not durable enough to keep a determined thief out of your stuff, but they're perfect for the gym or a suitcase. It's great that you can set the combination. The quality seems high - the barrels and lock move smoothly. The only quirk is that the lock mechanism doesn't "click." When you turn the barrels to the correct combination, it just slides open. Not a huge deal, but this is the only lock I've had that opens like this. Anyhow, you can't beat the price for two locks of this quality. Good stuff.

Some schools in the United States have been reported to have abolished the use of lockers. Security concerns are cited as the reason for this, with the concern being that lockers may be used to store contraband items such as weapons or drugs or pornographic material. There has been some controversy over in what circumstances school authorities or law-enforcement officials are permitted to search lockers, with or without informing the users, or with or without the users being present at the time of the search, and it has been considered a civil liberties issue, particularly in the U.S.

Sloping tops: while most lockers have flat tops, some manufacturers offer the option of sloping tops to their range of lockers. The slope may be of either 30 degrees or 45 degrees to the horizontal, sloping towards the front, and the purpose of this is to make it impossible to store items on top of the lockers, or to make it harder for dust or other debris to accumulate there. This is an important factor in places like food-processing factories or restaurants where hygiene requirements must be met.
Locker doors usually have some kind of ventilation to provide for the flow of air to aid in cleanliness. These vents usually take the form of a series of horizontal angled slats at the top and bottom of the door, although sometimes parallel rows of small square or rectangular holes are found instead, running up and down the door. Less often, the side or rear walls may also have similar ventilation.
After initial review, I was contacted by seller. They were very concerned about my issue with one of the locks. They promptly sent me a replacement TWO PACK (although I had a problem with only one lock). Both locks sent work perfectly. Well done! Excellent customer response and resolution. I am now very happy, and would highly recommend this product!!!
