3D model description

Proteus Box Making Parts
Build a box and I've got everything else for you, minus the hinges. The best part is the corner pieces look great and snap together with ease.

You need to make sure the boxes you build/buy are the same size.
If you build the boxes yourself and are unsure then have a look at Youtube/Google for great schematics and tips. It's not as simple as one might think to make multiple boxes the exact same size. Wood cutting skills not included.

Parts & Printing
Corners: there are only one style of top/bottom corner pieces. The reason is that the squared notches help lock the boxes from sliding when stacked.
Latch: this is a prototype idea. It takes two 20mmx5mm neodymium magnets (cylinder). One magnet goes into the latch and the other into the top part of the latch base. Use the plastic cover plate to fill the gap and protect the magnets from smashing. This should be more than strong enough since those magnets have a very high attraction to each other...
Be careful
The LatchBases need to be glued over the latch to secure it in.
Rope Handles: This is easy! You need two M5 bolts/nuts (3/16 inch) to secure the rope struts to your boxes. The rope should alse be 5mm (3/16 inch) in diameter. Thread the rope through each strut and tie the ends - use a lighter or heat gun to melt the knots to make them permanent.
Top Guide Plate: these are to be glued to the inside of the your boxes at the top. You should only need these if your box doesn't close perfectly straight. These will help your box close and stay straight - especially if you don't use any latches like a rebel.
