A three-leg box is simply a four-leg box amputee. One of the pieces of a traditional box has not been traded for a variety of possible reasons. Not selling one of the options (that should traditionally be sold) to increase potential profit, or not buying a leg that should be bought to increase possible profit while incurring more risk are the two primary reasons to be in a three-leg box.
The box is the primary building block of option arbitrage. Under most circumstances, the box represents a set of relationships that forever tie together the love triangle between calls, puts and stocks.
