You know how you can fold a typical four-flap box in a manner where all the flaps interlock and don't open easily... is there an established/universal name for that folding method?

Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

My BRIEF google search provides no formal name, but I like interlocking flaps myself.

I did find this reddit post from 6 years ago asking

I am not sure you need a special name - I think you can just say "fold the box shut"

The above requires some extrapolation. This doesn't seem to:

When I managed a shipping warehouse we just called it "Quick Boxing" as in "I quick boxed that package we need to send to Cincinnati...". Don't know if there exists an official term but seeing as it allows for one to quickly access a sealed box, this is what we used.

YouMoveMe. com calls it the "complicated fold".

Maybe concentric overlap?

I suspect it is soon going to be known as the "Please don't ship your transmutes to us this way" fold.

I have always heard it referred to as the "interlocking flap" method of closing the box. It is used if you plan to open it again.
