If you're using 2 lockers it doesn't matter how you orient them.

At the risk of giving pedro another opportunity to start an endless flame war, I will emphatically disagree with this statement.

Most lockers are screw locks. Screw lock 'biners, if oriented vertically, should always have the gate opening facing downward so that the locking sleeve is less likely to unscrew.

And that's a great mnemonic for teaching nubies: screw it down so you don't screw up.
