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 pumpkin!

Printing

 

If oriented correctly, all parts can be printed without supports.

 

Assembly

 

Assembly is the same as the original Twist Lock Trick Box. Watch this video for the complete process.

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.

Updated Topper.stl and Lid.stl. These new versions of the topper and lid include a small indent that shows the correct alignment for these two parts. No more trial and error during assembly!

The topper is now available in two parts - Split_Topper.stl and Split_Topper_Stem.stl to support printing the stem in a different color!
