All my enclosures are completely escape-proof. No matter how adept your snake is at opening things, it should never be able to open them. If they are sliding doors, then they have sliding glass locks on them (key and all), if they are hinged doors, then they have several secure latches, if they are rubbermaids in a rack - well a properly built rack is escape proof without any help, if it they are rubbermaids alone, then they have whatever locking device is best suited (I use both S-hooks and binder clips). Snakes can contort into way thats you wouldnt believe they can fit through spaces you wouldn't imagine they could. Anything that slides must be secured, snakes learn how to slide those open in a jiffy. They are the Houdinis of the animal world
