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.
Somebody else noticed it too:
Parting thot: "Show me a better way."
