    Loz,
    To be honest i have never seen these, but i am assuming they are a timber connector to allow free run of timber when timber is up against another timber.
    I do a lot of cut roofs and truss roofs and i use either strongtie.co.uk or timber connectors.co.uk. Not saying they will have these but they might have something similar to retrofit.

    Got a picture further away and what are they used for as far as you use them
    Been in the building game for 40 years and never seen anything like those

    Thanks all, yes they function like a box clamp, they are on Nucleus Bee Hives.

    I’d say that your local blacksmith would make them, if you cannot sourced them from anywhere else.

    Im a bit late to the party, but they are for fixing Nucleus together to prevent them from coming apart.
    My brother uses these on his hives to help if livestock knock them over

    i make bee hives in my spare time and sell them, but my brother keeps buying up all my stock.
    I know that when he puts them on the organic farms he uses those clips, some people use a ratchet strap to connect the whole hive together
    but i personally think straps look a bit "Heath Robinson"
