A two-in-one here, a frame grip, and a hive tool. Both are very handy and especially helpful when combined into the same tool. Grab frames and separate boxes without having to change tools or set anything down. The small pry bar is built into the frame grip and is just in the right spot to use.
Beekeeping 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.
If you have used a frame grip, you love it. They are great for safely lifting frames using only one hand. They clamp around plastic or wooden frames and securely hold them for easier inspections. The stainless steel frame grip is great, especially when getting started or working with a beginner beekeeper.
