Padlocks for Lockers
There are many ways you can secure locker doors, but one of the most common and cost-effective solutions is to use padlocks. Many sets of lockers come with padlockable hasp & staple solutions built into them, so all you have to do is find a suitable padlock to secure them.
In a similar fashion however, if you're looking to convert some metal cabinets into lockers, you can fit small hasps & staples onto them to achieve this same result.
The padlocks you choose will be entirely dependent on what your requirements are. You can either go for key-operated padlocks, or combination wheel padlocks. There are pro's and con's to both, which you'll need to consider before making your final decision.
Keys can be lost, stolen, or broken off inside the padlocks rendering them useless. So if this is a concern you may wish to consider a combination padlock.
However, combinations can be forgotten, which may put more demand on your staff having to liaise with customers repeatedly to remind them of the code. Similarly, combination padlocks can also have their codes changed, so there's always the risk that a user can change the code either deliberately or accidentally, rendering the padlock useless.
These are all things you need to consider when buying a padlock for lockers, particularly if those lockers are for public use.
