Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0005142A1] The invention provides a box (1) comprising a base panel (2), one or more pairs of side panels (3, 4) and one or more pairs of end panels (5, 6). Each of the panels (3, 4, 5, 6) is fastened to its neighbouring panels by co-operating fastening means comprising a retaining means such as a collar (8a) inserted in one panel and a two part catch (7a) inserted in an elongate hole (12) in an adjacent panel or a cam means (7b) inserted in a recess in one panel and a dowel means (8b) fitted into the edge of the adjacent panel. The two part catch (7a) or the cam means (7b) are operated by movement means (204, 22) to draw the two parts of the co-operating fastening means together to bring the adjacent panels into close engagement and to retain the panels together.
