Three configurations are available to meet your needs
1. Kevlok Beehive Banding Straps
This strap utilizes the amazing KEVLOK® over-center tensioning buckle. It is a loop strap with a quick-disconnect. Made with 2,500 lb. tensile bulked nylon webbing and 1,000 lb. tensile hardware, the strap is extremely durable and will last for years. Webbing is bright yellow, making the strap highly visible for night-loading (and it's non-aggravating to bees). They adjust from 9 to 12 feet, depending on length ordered, down to 1 foot.
How to Use It: Just loop the strap vertically around the stack, attach the quick-disconnect hook to the buckle, take up the slack through the buckle and close the buckle to apply up to 125 pounds of tension by hand — no tools needed! The whole procedure takes seconds!
Your hive stacks can then be easily moved without danger of coming apart. When positioned in their new location, just release the buckle easily by pulling up on the lever with the end of the strap, then unhook the quick-disconnect and remove the strap — in seconds!

2. Kevlok Beehive Pallet Straps
The pallet hooks (1,000 lb. tensile) fit snugly around standard 2 x 4 runners (actual dimensions are 1-1/2" x 3-1/2") without damaging the wood. The hooks, with webbing attached, have an extremely low profile (3/16") against the outside of the runners, so the same number of hives can be loaded as with any conventional alternative.
How to Use It: Attach the hooks to the pallet
runners adjacent to and at diagonal corners
of the same bottom board. This centers the
strap over the load. Then tighten and close.
3. Kevlok Beehive Truck Straps
This strap is made with 2,500 lb. tensile bulked nylon webbing, a 1,500 lb. ratchet buckle and a 1,000 lb. end hardware. It is extremely durable and will last for years. Stock color of strap is gray. This strap is available in lengths of 15 feet for pickup trucks and 25 feet for flatbed or other large trucks. Each strap can adjust down to 2 feet. End fittings are 1" vinyl-coated S-hooks for temporary attachment to eye bolts, slots or rods in order to secure your beehives in a truck. Caution: over-tightening may cause damage to load.
