  1. The Kanata wave pool’s locker have always been horrible unsecure. You can hang any kind of lock on the lockers, but anyone can open any locker, simply by pretending the lock is not there and just pushing a little harder to open it. I can not understand why in all this time, this wasn’t brought up before, and how the pool could not have noticed. I think it’s pure neglect.
    In essence, you might as well not lock it at all.
    Goulborne rec center’s locks used to be almost as bad. Once that pool reopens, I wonder if they did anything about it, or just left it. I bet they slacked and didn’t do a darn thing about it. Pretending the problem isn’t there.
    Richcraft’s locks are much better. There you can not easily open the lockers if you put a lock on it. You’d need to either compromise the lock, or show up with some serious tools.
    But the wave pool’s lockers are really the very worst I have ever seen anywhere, and I’ve seen facilities in multiple countries. It’s just that bad.
    Another thing people should watch for is the locks they use themselves. There are locks that can be compromised way too easily. Almost all the ones with the multiple dials, all you have to do is pull on the lock, rotate the dials, and they simply snap into place one by one. Any child could do it. The round rotating types there are two types. The ones where you can not rotate the dial while you’d pulling on the lock, is the good one. The one that you can rotate while pulling the lock, is a joke.
    Masterlock is a particularly bad brand for locks. They actually bought the company that makes the round ones, the good one where the dial doesn’t rotate while pulling, plus they themselves make the round bad ones as well. Confusing I know.
    But the wave pool, it’s just absurdly stupid those lockers. So where is the police in all of this? Aren’t they interested in helping to remove these weaknesses?
