Multi-compartment box

A simple, sturdy, multi-compartment box formed by making a lock repeatedly in a grid. As per usual, the mechanism is pretty simple, so if this is has already been done, I'd be curious to know about it.

    Interesting solution to lock the whole box. I created a similar box and Jun Maekawa did too, but they don't use your locking mechanism : )

    Why didn't you teach how to fold the whole box in the video? Maybe someone would like to fold it : )

    Gerardo, I wasn't sure if it was necessary to show more than a single lock, since it really is the same thing nine times over (or more if you want more compartments). That being said, I probably should have shown how to do at least one whole compartment if not a 2x2 box. So I will try to make a more complete video soon :-)

    Oh, you made a new version! It looks better than your first attempt, it also looks a bit closer to Maekawa's box but they're still two different boxes : )

    Well you don't HAVE TO make a complete video, I just thought that some people won't have enough knowledge to make the whole box, and might appreciate more info ; )
