The cells of the Flow comb are sealed with beeswax by the bees. Sometimes this wax is particularly tough and the key is really hard to turn.
To make it easier, you can open part of a frame at a time.
This is achieved by inserting the Flow Key part way into the lower operating slot and turning it. You can then insert the key further in and repeat the process until you have opened the entire frame.
