Most people prefer to keep their jewelry and other valuables in a bank locker, as they feel that it is safer to keep them in a locker than at home. The chances of their being stolen in the bank are much less than in the house, but do you know that the bank does not take any responsibility for the things kept in the locker because it does not know what is kept in the locker. Now you will be shocked to know that when your valuables are not safe even in the locker, then what is the use of keeping them there, but wait, the bank locker is really safe, but if If you insure it, then it will be safer.
