I saw a clip on a European website(seems like a long time ago)that is used to attach a bottom board to the first hive body.
Kinda like a spring attached at one end to the BB, over a screw or pin in the body and then clips back down on the BB.
Have not seen any here in the states but don't know the name so I can't search for them properly.
What are they called?
Can they be made from #9 galvanized wire?
Or do you need like a spring steel?
Anyone using them or have any experience with them?
Where can I get some to try?
