Smart Box

Various different thin cardboard Lipton Tea boxes have developed a simple all-cardboard lid latch which I find surprising, ingenious & very satisfactory.

The lid clicks shut, stays shut OK & opens easily with just the right amount of effort.

It's all done by a little folded-over tab on the box, which engages behind suitably cut-away tabs folded & glued inside the lid.

Well done!

Somebody else noticed it too:

Parting thot: "Show me a better way."
