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.
Accessories such as padlocks, closed bases and base trim finish the look and create a professional hallway storage space. Popular in daycares and preschools are the Jonti-Craft wooden coat locker with step and the wall mounted coat locker with room for lunch box storage. Don’t forget locks for your lockers or locker room benches to complete your installation. We carry a full line of locker accessories including sloped tops, finished end panels and base enclosures.
They are usually intended for use in public places, and intended for the short- or long-term private use of individuals for storing clothing or other personal items. Users may rent a locker for a single use or for a period of time for repeated use. Some lockers are offered as a free service to people partaking of certain activities that require the safekeeping of personal items.
There are a number of features or characteristics which may vary in lockers. Because purchasers will need to specify what they want in each of these when ordering, it is more common to order a particular configuration rather than buy "off the shelf" in a shop, although certain very common configurations can be found in shops fairly easily. These features include:

Gr 3–5—The Holms, the brother/sister team behind the graphic novel series "Squish" and "Babymouse," continue Babymouse's adventures, taking her into middle school. Much like Lincoln Peirce's "Big Nate" crossover chapter books, this new series will appeal to readers looking for slightly more challenging fare. Though this title contains more text than the original "Babymouse" books, there are numerous illustrations throughout, the font is large, and the difficulty of the language is comparable to that of previous books, making it ideal for fans crossing over into longer chapter book territory. Babymouse is just as energetic as ever, but now she's dealing with middle school drama and algebra. She doesn't want to fit in anymore—she wants to stand out! Babymouse finds the perfect opportunity in film club, where she is chosen to write and direct a movie inspired by her favorite epic dramas. She realizes that it's not as easy as she thought, with a diva leading actress and no budget. Ultimately, Babymouse learns that working as a team is more important than being a star. VERDICT A first purchase where the graphic novel series is popular. For fans of "Dork Diaries" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid."—Jessica Ko, Los Angeles Public Library

Half door and two person lockers use as much space as a single full door locker, but they are split into two units, which doubles the number of lockers overall. These are extremely popular because they are a nice middle ground between full door and box lockers. They provide a moderate amount of storage space while also being more efficient on overall space than full door lockers. Used half door lockers are one unit over the other, each unit being the same with as a full door locker. Two person lockers are two vertical units side by side, which are the same width as one full door locker as well. They also have two small shelves overhead for storage of small items.
This pair of locks is an outstanding value and needed my immediate review. They arrived today along with the two refridgerator hasps I ordered for our wine refridgerators. The whole mission was two secure the contents of the fridges BEFORE teens became a thing in our lives (lock before the horses got away). Back to the lock set... besides the fact that they come in pairs (because I needed a pair) and besides the fact that they come in black ( because our wine refridgerators are black) and besides the fact that the code is easy to to (so I can have the same code for both refridgerators), these are very good quality light to medium security locks and a huge value at 2 for $10. I recommend these locks without hesitation.
[EDIT] I received a very prompt reply back that this company is sending me out a replacement set for my one bum lock! They also suggested I try another (default) code to see if that would make my one work. But either way they're sending me out a new set and not making me return the bum one! Fantastic customer service--I'm extremely happy with them!!

They can also be used in external applications where internal space is not available.
