where is iddee when you need him? snoozin' I might guess?

not an expert here but I permanently attach mine to the front (mostly 5 frame nucs and simply use three thin sticks and some #8 hardware wire. when I move I stuff the top opening with cotton (rags). if confined for a spell (like say I am using cells and not mated queens) I wet the rag (typically once a day) to give them some water.
