Identifying a Class 6 GSA Red Label Container

First, let’s determine how would you identify a class 6 GSA Red Label Container. Safe identification can accomplished by identifying the external parts of the GSA container listed. Class 6 container drawer fronts will overlap the edge of the container body. If we look at the label on the control drawer, it will indicate to us wether we have a red label or black label container. Red label containers will have a silver label with red lettering, indicating that the container was manufactured after October 1990.

Is a Class 6 GSA Red Label Container safe opening really that difficult? It is not if you identify the safe properly, have the right safe tools, and use safe opening techniques which are appropriate for this type of safe.
