Black Pallet Strap
Pallet Straps are a great way to help protect your hive from prowling animals and strong winds. Instead of using a rock or cinder block, put the middle of the strap under the floor or hive stand and bring the ends to the roof using the buckle to strap it all together. This will prevent the hive from coming apart if it tips and also makes it hard for animals to damage. The Quick Release Strap is 1" (2.54 cm) wide and measures 130" (3.30 m) in length and it also comes with an adjustable quick release buckle so hive inspections are a snap.
This pallet strap is just the job to secure my beehive to its stand. It should be good for adding a couple more supers. Easy to adjust and fit - can be adjusted in-situ and the bees were not bothered in any way particularly as the whole operation took about 20 seconds.
