I can remember entering middle school and being introduced to the school lockers and having to memorize the combinations. I still have dreams about not remembering the combinations for my lockers. Not sure what that is supposed to signify do you? Growing up we also had to bring our lock for our gym lockers, not sure who would want a smelly uniform but I guess it was better than a demerit. There was nothing special about the locks, they were they typical turn dial and everyone’s looked the same.
Did you know that more than half of North American students don’t use a locker to store their belongings – most, opting to carry their belongings with them all day. This has to be awful on their backs. However, according to the same survey, nearly half of North American parents admitted that their child has had an item stolen from them at school, with the most valuable being their cell phone.*

I would love to have this on our Car’s Bike carrier since it lights up and would be convenient at night but they do not recommend getting this lock wet at all.
For those kids that are less prone to remember number combinations, how about a lock opens to a 4 letter word of choice? 1535D and 1535DWD Set-Your-Own Combination Locks: Perfect for students who prefer to create memorable combinations in the form of numbers or a word, initials or a favorite acronym.
