I drop my frame into a suitable sized box (should the queen be on there she can't drop in the grass!).
I'm sure you could cobble up such a box which would fit in between rails with room to insert a frame or two ?.

Mine sits on top but will be strapped to the hive stand. Didnt put a rebate as i thought it would hold water.

The strap is to stop any kids from pushing the hive over and then running off. It takes me a few minutes to undo when suited up.
