Note: This thing uses different locking latches !The latches that this canister uses are not same as what is found on the Garcia or Bearikade canisters - a coin will not work. However, a key, flat screwdriver, or nail file (such as is found on the average swiss army knife) probably will work.
Note that the photo shown on the manufacturer's website shows a typical Garcia canister -
The latches shown in this photo above are not what is found on the Bare Boxer Contender (below) -
The product came with instructions describing its use. It might be a good idea to check that you have something that can operate the latches before heading out into the backcountry.
