DESCRIPTION: If you love the hooked hive tool, this is the one. It's large has extra thick stainless steel and is nice and long for extra leverage.
FRAME LIFTER: The hooked end is designed to make lifting stuck frames out of the hive with a little extra leverage. The hook slides easily under the end of a frame and with a little tilt of the hand, lifts the frame straight up for easy removal.
WHAT ARE HIVE TOOLS FOR? Hive tools are the essential tool that all beekeepers use. They are required for separating boxes and lifting frames out of the box. While new equipment can be easily moved and adjusted, equipment that bees live in can be difficult to separate and work with over time. Hive tools are used to pry apart boxes and lift frames from the box.
SCRAPING AND PRYING: Hive tools have multiple ends designed to work in different ways. Narrow ends are used to pry boxes and frames apart and bent ends can be used to scrape comb and propolis from equipment.
