This is a simple Raspberry Pi enclosure in two pieces - base and lid.

The base has some pillars that support the Pi in places where there are no components on the circuit board. This keeps the SD card holder and other items mounted on the underside of the board clear of the base.

If you have a later model Pi, then two of the pillars line up with the holes in the board, so if you wish you can use screws to hold the Pi down (but use insulating washers under the screw heads and don't do the screws up too tight or you might damage your Pi!)

The lid has some clips that hold it in position - these clips have been positioned so that they're clear of any connectors or other items that protrude from the Pi board. The clips hold the lid on reasonably securely, but if you want to keep the box securely closed for long periods, you could always use some tiny drops of glue, or some sticky tape to fasten the two halves of the box together.
