Latching clips for folded pieces?

RayBellis
I'm designing this that I want to print in one flat piece and then fold over
to form an open-ended box, with this progress so far:

<http://forum.openscad.org/file/t2120/boxfold.png>

On each of the four folding sections I wish to place some form of friction
latch or pin to keep the joint folded in position, but I'm not sure what the
right terminology is to search for.   Something like those shown at 3m25 in
this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXeR6tmcZCE would be ideal.

Does anyone have something like that in their library that they can share
(or know of one)?   I'd prefer to avoid endless hours of reprint after
reprint as I try to get the parameters right.   If it matters, I usually
print with PLA with a 0.4mm nozzle (Prusa I3 Mk2s).

cheers,

Ray

A quick search using "openscad polypanels" resulted in many links, but this one appears promising:

Ah, thanks - that's the term I was missing! :)

In my case because I'm missing two sides I need to put the latching
pieces on the long edges of my folding part to provide structual
rigidity, but that hint should at least point me in the direction of
suitable dimensions of a click-fit peg.

The polypanels didn't turn out to be quite what I was after, so this is what
I came up with:

I've put the source code on  my GitHub
<https://github.com/raybellis/hingefold>  

Ray.
