Try an empty, clean Cool-whip container or similar (ideally food-grade container but even a Sterilite shoe-box container is ok) and fill loosely with damp sphagnum moss. The snake will hide in it if kept about 80 deg, and the eye caps should come off after a few days usually. Kings like moist hide spots. You can use the lid too, just utility knife a good size hole.
