The pack has four panels, which interlock to form a tamper evident base. The panels are glued to one another. The interlocking arrangement of the panels is designed to strengthen the base of the pack. If attempts are made to force the base inward, the interlocking sections of the panels will move towards each other and so prevent the pack from opening. If such force is used that the interlocking sections become damaged, it will be clear that interference with the pack has taken place.
