Qitzur Shulchan Arukh – 188:3-4

ג: חַיָב לִשְׁמֹר אֶת הַפִּקָּדוֹן בְּאֹפֶן הַיוֹתֵר טוֹב כְּפִי הַדֶּרֶךְ לִשְׁמֹר חֲפָצִים כָּאֵלּוּ. וַאֲפִלּוּ אִם הוּא אֵינוֹ מְדַקְדֵק כָּל כָּךְ בִּשְׁמִירַת חֲפָצִים שֶׁלּוֹ בַּפִּקָּדוֹן, חַיָב לְדַקְדֵּק יוֹתֵר

One is obligated to guard the deposit in a manner that is better than he would guard his own property. And even if he isn’t all that careful with the guarding of his own items, with a deposit he must be very careful.

ד:אֵין הַנִּפְקָד רַשַּׁאי לְהַפְקִיד אֶת הַפִּקָּדוֹן בְּיַד אֲחֵרִים, אֲפִלּוּ כְּשֵׁרִים וְנֶאֱמָנִים יוֹתֵר מִמֶּנּוּ, אֶלָּא אִם כֵּן הַמַּפְקִיד גַּם כֵּן רָגִיל לְהַפְקִיד דְּבָרִים כָּאֵלּוּ אֶצְלָם

The one who receives the deposit is not allowed to deposit the item in the hands [control] of others — even [people] who are more kosher and trustworthy than he is. Except if the depositor is also accustomed to deposit items similar to these with them.
