It started as envying the spring clips they use in the UK for use in setting up dual-purpose production boxes / swarm traps and kind of morphed from there .I like the clips/clasps better tho - very practical
I thought about spray painting the outsides white. I'll noodle with it and post R1.South face needs protection from the sun.
The 35 pound totes I have are made of polypro. Doing some research, looks like people have good success spray painting them, particularly if they start with a good adhering primer.Most likely polystyrene.
Not a bad idea. I thought about partially filling them with pea gravel as ballast, but suppose that could be accomplished in either orientation.I would have put the Top on the ground.
And I have no cats.
Ruth and Jack:I find plastic to be very slippery and maintaining a slight foward tilt is going to be difficult.
Indeed- they are both rescues and they don't even like me...You are indeed a very fortunate and privileged person…say your feline overlords.
Said in gest- I've got 6 kiddos at home and the cats much prefer them. I think in their own way they appreciate the fact that I dutifully feed and water them every morning, but they interact with the kids more.You are doing something wrong then. My cats fight over me.
Alibaba is a good resource for machine parts. I ended up paying about $0.5 / ea shipped for these latches.I looked for some a few yrs ago to do the same as the Lysons but could justify the cost.
Indeed they are- and the good well sealing lids are a definite bonus.... they really are very versatile
I think their trade name is a cabinet latch. The latching mechanism increases and decreases in length as you lift the latch up and down.I want to know how to get the clips off if they are on both sides of the hive.
Definitely not a need. For me:I don't feel the need for latches.
