Knight Vault’s secure lockers keep customers’ belongings safe while in a bar or nightclub. Swiping a debit or credit card reserves lockers, and guests secure the lockers by choosing a four-digit pass code. Once the locker is shut and locked, the Knight Vault lockers are safe but can also be opened and shut throughout the night. Management can open lockers at any given time and take part in sweeps at closing time in minutes.
