I really don't think there is any difference in strength. It all depends on the brand. Back in high school, the key & lock types were bought by the school to lock the unused lockers and were really weak. Kids just pulled them off anyway.

I think you've just used cheap lock and key locks. You can get pretty hefty ones for not taht much. Theres a huge difference between those and the kinds tourists stick on there luggage.

pretty easy to pick one of those key locks, plus you have to have a key on you. Rotary ones are pretty solid/hefty/hard to break & the only thing you need to open one is yr mind. I still have the one I bought in grade 7 when I got my first locker, so safe to say the combination is still easily remembered even though I haven't used it for a few years.

I really don't understand the concept of external locks. They can be broken off too easily. I have always seen internal locks everywhere.

Yep. We have them on our lockers at school. After over 5.5 years, I still find it tough to use them.

I don't think I've ever seen a locker that has an external lock.

Haven't really used those locks outside of lockers back when I was in high school/last couple years of elementary school. Doesn't really make sense to have internal locks in that context. Plus the external locks in the OP are pretty damn durable. I remember we put three of our locks on my one buddies backpack in grade 9 and he couldn't get them off which was bloody hilarious to a bunch of 14 year olds. Things are pretty durable.

I was always under the impression that the Dudley locks were designed that if somebody tried to kick them open, if they successfully broke the locking mechanism, it was designed to collapse in a way that doesnt allow the loop to come out of the lock.

Pretty much requiring chain cutters to break through the lock.


Those little dinky key locks that were posted earlier in the thread, i have seen people kick those open no problem.

Which is why we use internal locks.

But if you know you are buying a door that needs to get locked, you might as well buy one with an internal lock.

I think i've seen one before, but not in person. Looks fairly straightforward too, although they usually come with instructions on the pack. The main locks i am familiar with are the ones with the triple rotary combinations (it's been posted in here).

There were a few of those at school, but they were hard to open. Most people prefered the ABUS 3-number combination locks, or just locks with keys.

I never had a locker at school, so I never needed one.

I had one for my locker at school. I hardly ever used it but if we wanted a locker we had to put a lock on it within the first month. After that, the school just locked the others to prevent people putting rubbish in them. So I got the first lock that looked sturdy and put it on just in case I ever wanted to use it. I think the only time I really used it was for a few weeks where I bought drinks and sweets in bulk and sold them slightly cheaper than the vending machines did.

Other than that I don't think I've seen lockers with an external lock. most places seem to have either have those RFID wristbands or just a key.

I don't see how Students are relevant?

We have electronic lockers at my university.
