sliding a frame back in is a sure way to kill a queen, especially if there is any burr comb.
It is best to have a couple of frames removed and when placing the frame with the queen on it, set it on the frame rest a couple of inches from the next frame. Then slid the frame in place...oh yeah queen facing out.
Then do the same with the next frame, and gently slide into place, from the side. If the queen is on the frame, never slide it in from the top, too much of a risk.
