    I love gadgets... :D (Add a "queen catcher" or whatever those things are and maybe I could do this. LOL)

    This is a queen catcher. Just scoop her into the tube, push the plunger in and up until she is gently held against the wire. Mark her through the wire. Pull the plunger and release her. ALL DONE.
