At work, they assigned a special Bike Locker (supposedly a hard thing to come by). But the locker seems unusable. I usually arrive with sopping wet rain jacket pants, and waterproof shoes (insides still dry).
The floor is about waist height! :rolleyes: And 2 hooks loom @9'! I daisy chained 2 hangers over 1 hook for the jacket. If I daisy chain the other hook for pants, there doesn't seem to be a way to spread a towel to dry.
What's the best way to dry stuff in these super tall/thin lockers?

Any way you can run a fan? I find I can dry almost anything if I can run a fan on it for an hour or so.
Or just take your wet stuff to your desk and run a fan there.

If this is a bike locker, you would hook your front rim on one of the hooks, Take your cycling clothes and towel to your workplace and let them dry there on hangers and dry with the aid of the office ventilation system. No lockers are good for drying wet clothes.

Here's the solution I came up with for such a tough problem in case someone else has this problem.
Suspended a narrow double shelf rack between the two hooks
Used the shelves for extra clothes
Hung the hangers for jersey, and pants from the bottom wire shelf
Added 3-M adhesive hooks on the sides of the locker for stuff like socks
Bought some desicant to help dry things out
The boat desicant was the topper...Fantastic stuff! In stead of taking up 3 lockers for all that winter gear, it fits in 1 locker and everything dries in the 8hrs for the return trip.
