Grandfather tried the piece of wood screwed to the side idea.
That would get you by for a while. In the long run though, when the boxes get some age and wear and tear on them, the handles come off, either from the screw pulling out or rusting and the glue failing, usually at the worst possible time.
It seems like a good idea, but once you get a real good hive, one that’s really producing, those boxes get full of bloating, yummy full comb and weigh quite a bit.
I think Grandfather told me once that it was nothing for a good hive to have boxes weighing over a hundred pounds.
