Springflap – complete matchbox
Springflap outer opened out flat

A type of matchbox where, when the innerbox is pulled from the outerbox with one open end, and a flap energised by an elastic band flips out such that the innerbox can be returned by flipping back the flap.

What should we call this type of matchbox when there is no elastic band fitted? A flap box?
