It must make sense to him.

Last night I was at the Takhini Hotsprings where the following conversation took place.
Me: One adult swim pass, please. Oh, and I'll need a lock.
Attendant: OK. For the lock I'll need either $10 or a car key as a security deposit.
Me: Oh, great! I only need the lock to lock up my car key, so how about I just give you my car key and you can give it back to me when I'm done swimming!
Attendant: No, we can't do that.
Me (confused): But... I only need the lock to lock up my car key. If I give it to you for the deposit I don't need the lock.
Attendant (sympathetically): I'm sorry, I can't hang on to your car key for you. We don't do that.
Me (scratching my head): OK, then... I'll take the lock and give you my car key for the deposit.
Attendant: Alright.

What if you clipped the lock into your keychain and handed that back to the guy?

At least that way you wouldn't worry about losing the lock.

Ha ha, I forgot to mention that when he handed me the lock he explained, "That will work on any of the lockers."

It was a valuable piece of information to have.
