    I dunno...we receive about 3 new products a month to look at....these I haven't seen or tried firsthand and I'm struggling to figure out how one of them works and the value a couple of the others add....the frame gripper appears to be trying to address a deficiency in existing designs in that it is spring loaded so one doesn't have to keep continual pressure but without trying it I'm not sure ...the other two...hmmmmm....

    The frame hanger would have the advantage of not hanging off the side of the hive as the current modles do. I recall when I was beginning working lower boxes and them placing the upper back on only to discover I have not removed the frame hanger. I do not make that mistake anymore, but I can see where someone would appreciate this.
    The frame organizer also seems to have possible merit. If for no other reason as a place to store frames of honey when making splits or other extensive work during a dearth.
    the frame grabber in a reinvented tool that I feel the original was not really productive. My Thoughts on the matter.
