Fastening System

       The described fastening system allows walls of boxes or
other containers to be secured together and aligned with each other.

      It involves three different part types A, B and C, as shown in
Fig. 1.  They are preferably made of plastic.

      According to Fig. 2, part C is inserted in two holes to be
aligned.  Part A is then forced into part C.  The parts are fitted
tight and interlocked.

      Part B is then forced into the opposite part C.  The parts are
simply hooked together with a peripheral flange on part C fitting
into a peripheral groove on part B.  Part B can be rotated within
part C.

      The two walls are then joined, and part B inserted into part A,
then rotated so as to clip the whole system.

      Simplicity, low cost, re-usability are the main advantages of
the described fastening system.
