"Z" Spring Leaflet, produced by Apex Enterprises
The white panel is a fairly accurate facsimile of the original A4 sized
leaflet, but as it was produced using Amstrad PCW type computers that have
non square pixels, a drawing board and photocopying, it is not easy to
duplicate the exact typefaces and spacing without resorting to rather
large, bandwidth consuming, pure image formats. The result is sufficiently close to the
original for recognition as the layout and style are close to the original.
HIVE SECURING SPRINGS
|The kit for each pair consists of:
2 x Stainless S shaped springs.|
4 x Large headed screws
4 x Small headed screws
Each packet will also contain this leaflet
The large headed screws are used as hinge pins and latches, so that the
spring will not be lost by overriding the screw head. The small headed
screws are used for the latching points, the small heads allow the
spring to pass between the screws when the lower screws are in use.
The two central latch positions are required so that framed queen
excluder may be accommodated.
Always fit the springs with the hinge screw on the left as you look at
the box side, this consistency pays dividends, all parts are totally
interchangeable. You may not think that this is important, and when
only a few hives are being dealt with the importance may not readily
be seen, but we can assure you that when you are dealing with
thousands of hive parts it becomes very important indeed.
All our own hive parts have these spring clips fitted, they prove
useful for moving bees, they also hold hives together even after being
tipped over by vandals, our stands and roofs are also fitted with
these clips which proves of great benefit when transporting empty kit
from site to site.
The rear surface of the leaflet also has a label printed on
it in such a fashion as the label shows when the leaflet is folded for
insertion in the polythene bag along with the springs and screws. The
label is shown below left and it's position on the back of the leaflet
is shown below right along with the fold lines.
I am endebted to Steve Szucik for providing me with the paper copy that this page has been produced from.
