Here is a easy way to remove and install coilsprings

To get started remove the pan from the trap (just makes it easier ...but not always necessary)


I use a screw driver and a nut driver to remove and intall springs on coilspring traps ... sorry no pic of a screw driver lol


Spring in lever groove


Insert screw driver ... prying outward



Continue prying until spring pops free ... watch your fingers ... it can get ya


Springs with tension released


Grasp spring pin ... lift and wiggle until free



Springs & spring pin removed


Using the nut driver insert spring into driver to install spring


With spring & driver in this postion ... remove nut driver popping spring into lever grove ... repeat steps as need for each remaing coil


Hope this helps

yep thats how I do it, you can also use a screw driver with the interchangable heads, works great.

good post.


I survived the death clutch of Boss Hog, and am now here for my 3rd tour of duty on Tman

Nice post. Thanks.


With all my aches and pains, I'm afraid I have that Chinese disease, "Yung No Mo".

Good post. Good pictures, thanks.


It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, but only 3 for a proper trigger squeeze.
