Sinclair, L. . 1995. Bear-Proof Food Lockers. 9523 1310. San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center. 4 p.

A food locker that has been used in the past on several forests was originally developed by the National Park Service (NPS) and this locker is still being used in many campgrounds in the west. The current NPS steel food locker is approximately 20-in x 20-in x 48-in (0.5m x 0.5m x 1.2m) and stores approximately 10 cf (0.3m 3 ). The food locker is traditionally set on the ground and bolted to a concrete base. Two chained swivel eye-bolt snaps are used to lock the door. This method has met with some success, but there have been inherent problems with the food locker design.
