tsk tsk....well perhaps I should have been a bit clearer Smiley there will be 50 to start in this particular location.  

I am looking for some type of fastening mechanism perhaps for the supers and or shallows and also a way to secure them to the ground.  

Thanks!

Here is an easy way to keep all the hive parts together.  Seems like it would allow for easy moving/swapping of parts between hives if they are all made standard.

In Key West people use screw augers and metal straps to help hold sheds and trailers to the ground.  Something like an auger can be put between the hives and load straps over the tops of the hives... the augers can be left in place and the straps can be removed when there are no typhoons to facilite working the hives.    A similar type of auger can be found in pet stores for staking out dogs on a chain.  Cost may be an issue.
