Parcel Locker Operation & Use

Parcel Lockers are strictly designed for packages and parcels ONLY and cannot be used for mail delivery or mail collection. Parcel Lockers have two locks and two keyholes and come with a special captive tenant trapping control lock along with the USPS postal master lock that your local post office installs and uses. These lockers can be used for either USPS use/access which most parcel lockers are used for this postal application as long as the parcel lockers are USPS Approved OR they can be used for private party use/access which is for private party distribution. This means a private person or individual does the actual mail delivery and mail distribution. In this case, the parcel lockers would need to be equipped with a private master control lock which would need to be purchased separately for this private use.

However, USPS Approved parcel lockers for USPS use/access are the most common and most popular and are designed to be used in conjunction with commercial mailboxes placed by or next to them. So, everybody or all tenants share these parcel locker compartments depending upon who has a package on any given day. The parcel locker doors-to-tenant doors ratio, that USPS now recommends and requires, is having 1 parcel locker for every 10 tenant doors. However, some of this depends upon your actual volume of packages and parcels. Maybe some of the tenants are actually small businesses and not residential such as accountants or attorneys and receive lots of daily and weekly packages.

So to recap here, if somebody or some tenant has a package on any given day the mail carrier will leave a parcel key in their mailbox, so the tenant then retrieves the parcel key when opening their tenant door for retrieving their mail. The tenant then opens the parcel locker door to retrieve their package and the parcel key will then stay stuck or trapped in the keyhole which only the mail carrier can release it the next day by using/opening the second keyhole which is their USPS postal master lock. This is a special locking system designed for obvious security reasons so that parcel keys are not permanently given out to the tenants.
