Where To Begin?

How to assemble a tab locking box from start to finish. Don't worry, after you do it a few times, it will start to go quickly and become second nature!

Having Issues Folding Your Box?

The most common issue people face is that the tabs of the side panels don't go into the slot. In almost all cases, this is because they fold over the side panel on the wrong crease - crease 2 instead of crease 1. It seems like such a minor thing, but it makes the side panel up to one quarter inch shorter than it should be.

This video shows this issue in more detail. Don't worry, the box is still perfectly fine! You can just construct the box again, folding over on crease 1 instead of crease 2.
