- Feb 2, 2010I have found that to easily open the bear vault you can place something like a credit card/license or knife blade (or something similar) in between the tab and the outer rim..then tab then simply slides past....if this makes sense.-----Original Message-----

Lots of people have a hard time opening them up. I own 1 and found a way that was easy for me. I lay the bear vault down sit over it. With my thumbs I use my upper body to move the tabsSent on the Sprint® Now Network from my BlackBerry®From: bgomoll@aol. comDate: Tue, 02 Feb 2010 14:12:44 -0500To: <johnmuirtrail@ yahoogroups. com>Subject: Re: [John Muir Trail] Seeking Bearikade Weekender -- borrow or buyWould you care to tell us why you think the bearvault sucks?

I have three Bearikades, and I think I want to be buried in mine!
