what's the theory behind having triggers over too the side?

Since beaver are moving slow they sometimes will try to clear the run before entering the trap.It makes the trap fire when the beaver is into the trap a bit,preventing a miss or a foot caught beaver in a belisle.Also sometimes a beaver will be entering the house with a stick.Always catch a few with a stick beside him in the trap.The reason the trigger is positioned on the bottom is so you can feel the trap jaws with your spud,to determine which traps need chopping out if you are doing a two check run.
