Tiltable Horizontal Beehive
White tiltable beehive with lid open mounted between a 4

A Tiltable Horizontal Beehive is designed to enable beekeepers, including wheelchair users, to access the hive without having to lift and move the hive boxes. One unlatches the peg at each end, pushes on the edge of the hive to tilt it toward him/her, then re-inserts the pegs to hold the hive in that tilted position. This allows the user to securely work on the honey frames. The lid has safety cables that hold it open while the hive is tilted.
