An added twist to an old idea is this Pry and Grip Tool. If you have been caught juggling your hive tool and your frame grip to remove those frames, here is your solution. Rounded handle is comfortable to grip.
I have this frame grip as well as the economy frame grip. Save yourself the headache and get this one! The few dollars you save long term isnt economical. This one has a much more positive grasp on the frame and the pry bar makes for quick loosening of frames. I feel like Im going to drop a frame of bees with the economy one, and I have to juggle my hive tool along with it!
The pry bar is helpful for quickly loosening frames. The rounded handle is comfortable to hold. Other, similar products have flat handles, which hurt your fingers when lifting a fully loaded frame. With this tool, I can lift full frames easily with one hand, and use the other to deal with the bees. Well-thought-out tool. Indispensable.
Liked the tool a lot, but the spring broke after about 3 seasons of limited use.
