Tip of the Week: Using Public Lockers
Any time you are using a facility that provides a locker, it is important that the lockers are used correctly to assure the safety of your items. Never place your items in a public locker and leave them unattended and unsecured. A locker does not provide any kind of protection if it is not locked. Secure the locker with a QUALITY LOCK. Using locks intended for luggage are easily twisted off. Do not depend on the facility to provide security for those lockers. In most cases, those facilities will not be responsible, or reimburse you for items stolen from their lockers.
Take care, and be safe.
