KuriiUUlug Mull I.ocka and Keys.
Post Orric* Dxpartmsmt,
March 14, 1H51. ,
I T being desirable to substitute lock* and keys oi some other kind
1 for those now in use lor the mail service of the United titales,
specimen locks and keys, with propositi* to furnish the same, will
he received and considered ai the Post Office Department until the
hrst day ol July next, i he different locks will be submitted to a
commission lor examination and report. Upon this leport contract*
will, a* soon a* practicable, be entered into for furnishing such lock"
and keys for four > ars, with the right' on the part of the Postmaster
General for the time being to extend and continue the contract in
force for an additional term of four yeais, by giving to the contractor
a written notice to that effect, not more than nine nor less tliau six
months before the termination of the first term of four years.
With a view ol procuring the best lock nt the lowest price, no kind
of lock is prescribed as a standard ; the department relying for a se
lection on the iiieehauical skill ami ingenuity which a fair coiupeti
lion, now invited, may develop. liis, however, proper to state lliat
a lock suitable for the mail service should po?ses* the following
qualities, viz : durability, uniformity, lightness, and strength.
For the purpose of displacing simultaneously ull the moil locks
and keys now in use, about thirty tliousaud new locks and twenty .
thousand keys adapted thereto will be required to be furnished by
the contractor within seven months after the contract shall have
been entered into ; afterwards the annuul supply will depend ou the
durability of the locks and keys adopted, as well as the increase of
thv mail service ; but it will probably never exceed in amouiil three
thottituud of the former, and one thouRaud of the latter.
No lock will be considered if it be like any already In general use ;
nor will any one with whom the contract may be made be allowed
lo make, sell, or furnish any lock or key similar to those contracted
for for any other purpose or use than that of the Post Office Depart
The kind off lock adopted must be patented, anil the patentee will
be required, on entering into contract, to make an assignment of his
patent for the exclusive use aud benelit of the department, if the
Postmaster General shall deem such requirement essential to the in
terests of the service. In case of the failure of the contractor at any
time to fulfil faithfully the terms ami conditions of bit contract, the
Postmaster General shall have the light, besides a resert to the penal
remedy hereinafter mentioned, to annul said contract, and to con
tract anew with any other |?arty or parties, as he Amy see fit, for fur
nishing similar locks and keys.
In deciding upon the propoMils ami specimens offered, the Postmas
ter General may deem it ex|iedient to select for the through mails the
lock of one bidder, and for the way-mails that of another. Here
serves, therefore, the right of contracting with different individuals
for such different kinds of locks as he may select, aud also the right
to reject all the specimens and proposals, if he shall deem that course
for the interest of the department. The party or parlies contracting
will be required to give bond, wiili ample security, in the sum ol
thirty thousand dollars, for a faithful performance of the contrai l.
TIm- contract is to contain provisions for the due and proper inspec
tion of the lock* and keys, and also for guarding against thqjr pass
ing into improper hands ; the terms of these provision* to be ar
ranged between the department and the successful bidder, if a hid
should be accepted.
No application wilt be considered if not accompanied with satis
factory evidence of the trustworthy character of the bidder, and Of
hi* ability to fulfil the contract.
