This trick box has a hidden latch mechanism that will keep it securely closed until you twist a particular section of the lid.
This remix of the original Twist Lock Trick Box (hexagon) is now a spooky coffin!
This design is 80% smaller than other Twist Lock Box designs. If you plan to use a custom topper made for a standard-sized Twist Lock Box, either scale the coffin up my 125% or scale the topper down 80%.
Make sure to pre-tension the spring by one gear tooth
This will assure that the latches have a strong hold on the base. This is also necessary for the alignment of some toppers.
Make sure to glue the spring and topper
If you do not fully secure these parts, the mechanism may become detached while in a locked state. I recommend using either super glue or 3D Gloop!, but hot glue can work as well.
