Update #20160403: I have added lock-20x3mm.stl and ratchet-20x3mm.stl ratchet-lock pair. The ratchet inner diameter is 20 mm, the teeth are 2 mm tall and the ratchet itself is 3 mm thick. This one works best (I've printed >30 pcs to the family already).

Materials and methods
- 3x10 mm countersunk bolt
- M3 nyloc or plain nut
