Gap Between Flow Frames and Metal Strip on box

I have a 1cm gap between the base of the flow frames and the metal strip on the base of the box…bee’s can fit through the gap. Anyone had this problem?

When I first set my super I had a gap there, not so big. My issue was I hadn’t backed the screw out far enough at the top of other end of the flow frame. When I backed that out and it was a snug fit the gap disappeared. Hopefully this solves your issue.

With the size of the gap though I also have to ask did you install the metal bar on the super sides that where recessed for it?

Other than that a few photos will help with working through what the issue is. As you have identified you don’t want bees leaking out the back of the flow super.
