Designing a lid for a box

by Nickduino

I've designed a box to hold a gas soldering iron, a lighter, tweezers, a bit of solder, a sponge, etc.

I've designed it from a solid block and extruded-cut whatever space I needed from a median plane. Now, I want to split it in halves to have a bottom and a lid. That's not an issue. What I need help with, though, is designing a locking mechanism.

Seeing how the lid has deep cuts, I don't think I can use hinges and open it an an angle. So, two completely separate parts, maybe two keyed connections ? And two locking "flaps"?

I'm no product designer and I'd like some guidance to learn the best practice
