Flow frames are often heavier that traditional combs- and a little harder to remove from the box. It’s a bit harder to use the hive tool to pry up both ends- especially the extraction end. It’s not big deal certainly- but- I have been using my frame grabbing tool to pull them out- however it is designed for standard langstroth frames and is not ideal for flow frames. It doesn’t grip them as well not being designed to grip so wide- and you have to take care as you don’t want to damage the frame or drop it. What would be great is a dedicated flow frame grabbing tool. One that is designed to perfectly fit a flow frame. If Flow makes one I will be the first to buy it @Faroe @Cedar ??
This is what the regular ones look like:
Ideally it would have a lock on it- so once you have grabbed the frame you can lock it and don’t need to keep pressure on the two handles. Who’s with me? Who wants one?
