What you need:

your schedule
your locker combo
your locker

this will show you how to save some time will locker combos and jammed lockers.
this won't tell you how to open lockers with out the combo or how to hack into lockers.

Step 1: Locker Combos

Locker combos are very annoying. If you not good with locks or just have trouble because you are in a hurry to your next class and you can't open it in time, this step will show you how to deal with this. If you notice that you get to most of your classes that means you have time to do this trick. It is really simple. Before you close your locker, do the first two numbers of your locker combo,then, when it is time for your next class just do the last number and open it. If you really think that know one will try to open it, do all your numbers so when you come back just open it.

Ex: Your locker combo is 30-36-40
before you leave your locker for your next class, do the first 2 numbers, in this case it would be 30-36. Then when you come back for your next class, do the last number (40) and open.

Step 2: Jammed Lockers

Sometimes lockers can get jammed or stuck and can't open, whether it is a bad day or you have a lot of stuff stuck inside.Usually the main problem comes from disorganized lockers.
when you try to open it and it is stuck, push up on the part that pushes up and with pull outward with you finger.If this still doesn't work,get a teacher to help.

Step 3: Organize Locker

To avoid jammed lockers and messy lockers, organize it with locker shelves. Organizing makes it easy to grab textbooks and other needs.Put paper in folders and bring home what you don't need. By organizing and saving space, you can avoid getting your locker jammed and dissapearing homework.

Step 4: Recap

lets recap.

organizing=no jammed locker & no dissapearing homework
If your locker is jammed,push up and pull out,hard.
Do the last 2 numbers of your combo when you close your locker if you are not in a hurry.
