Turn the spring so the V is pointed to the other side of the trap and push the eye back around the corner. It is not unusual for that to happen, depending on the brand of trap. Say "Dukes" as an example.

I make all of my supports with 3/8 rod. My stakes are 3/8" and 1/2". I can easily support a 330 with two 1/2" stakes when the bottom is frozen, I just swing harder. Lol.

I guess I misunderstood, I thought you had deep bank den entrances and needed to get a trap in front of them.

Coni plates....same as used in culverts......easy peasy......

except the one shown is for rocky stream...I weld the bracket the other way for culverts...and use heavier plate,,3/8", if strong current.
