GSA Services

Bear Lock & Safe Service has been trained to work on GSA containers. If you have a GSA container or safe you should be sure you are getting an experienced technician to work on it. These are special locksmiths that have been trained in GSA protocols and procedures. Using one can ensure you are getting work that is done professionally and safely.

The Difference Between a Locksmith and a Technician trained to work on GSA safes, containers, and vaults

An inexperienced locksmith may or may not have the resources to open the container. Sometimes they use unsafe methods to open the container which can lead to increased fire risk or damage to the container, which is quite expensive on a GSA container. This may compound problems and make it impossible to repair to GSA FED STD 809D. If you are a government institution or DOD Contractor this can lead to voiding the container’s GSA Certification and you could be without a container to store sensitive materials until a replacement can be purchased.

This is why you should only use a properly trained tech like Bear Lock & Safe Service. We can open your container in the most efficient, and more importantly, GSA approved method, without any danger or risk security protocol violations. Our methods of opening leave the best options for repairing the container and staying within GSA requirements.

Price is not everything Just because somebody quotes a lower price for GSA work does not mean it's a better option. Many untrained or under-skilled locksmiths will quote low prices thinking it's like any other safe. When they get there they may raise the price or realize they cannot open the safe by ordinary means. This will often frustrate the unskilled locksmith and they can sometimes just up and leave. Leaving you with a destroyed container that's still locked. Be careful when you get a quote as a true professional will know what they are getting into beforehand.


When Bear Lock & Safe Service repairs a GSA safe, container, or vault door, we do so according to FED STD 809D. If not done to those specifications, the container’s label must be removed. And the container can no longer be used to store what it was intended to, by law.

If you want a proper job done by a trained, knowledgeable, GSA experienced professional, you need to choose a professional safe technician like Bear Lock & Safe Service.

About 20 years ago I needed a locksmith for an eviction. Bear Lock was the closest geographically to the address involved. I have never regretted that call.
