This is a slightly more challenging variant of Dovetail Triangle that only opens when held in a certain orientation.

Watch the video for a demonstration:



Build Locking Dovetail Triangle1 and Locking Dovetail Triangle2. The pieces should fit together.

Choose to build 2 of either Locking disc or Locking triangle and then use them to lock the dovetail as shown in the video.

There are more pictures and an explanation of the locking mechanism on my blog at http://mysd300.blogspot.com/search/label/dovetail

what did you use/do to print/finish the clear one its gorgeous

I have the same question! :)

Genius! I thought the original design would come in handy, for quick locking two objects together, but was worried it would fall apart. Definitely bookmarking this version.

I had to rotate triangle 1 to print it on the bottom. Maybe rotating the file might be helpful for other users...

Printed it and it works great. My kids can't wait to trick thier friends.

Very cool :) Can't wait to get my printer

Very nice... Kudos!
