Old Classic A.L.R wooden suitcase! How do I open it

7
Posted 20th Feb
I just got this to use as a retro style coffee table / foot rest

In the pics it opens up, it’s white inside.

I can’t figure how to open it ?
Does anyone have one of these ?

Any help would be appreciated

Then use your thumbs to push them towards the outside (at the same time).

Unless of course the person who sold it to him has locked it and kept the key!

That takes me back! I have one of these in the attic from school days. As said above, twist 1/4 turn etc.. But if it is locked, they are really easy to pick with straightened out paper clip. Possibly a little squirt of WD40 to clean the dirt.
