I have been just wiring to chain. I'm looking for a better way too many tags get eaten. Later Longear

I attach mine as close to the stake as I can get it. I use copper wire and roll or fold the tag also. I don't have too many problems.

I wrap mine tightly around the swivel farthest from the trap and squeeze tight with a pliers. I lose less this way then wiring them on.

Use to wrap mine around the frame under the pan, actually lost fewer that way than wrapping around the chain toward the end/stake end.

Baseplating kind of hindered wrapping around the frame though.

never saw the need for the use of wire if wrapped/rolled and crimped properly

name address to the inside and crimped tightly ... if someone feels they need to know who it belongs to they gotta work for it and it's no guessing whether or not it's been tampered with \:\)

Their is a smaller version of hog ring crimp(often used and sold with sausage making supplies) that works well for me. 3/8" size. $2/100.


I've learned enough thru the years to now know that I don't know enough. KNOWLEDGE IS FREEDOM.

I got the hog rings from Larry A. Finch when I got my tags. I installed them on the last link near the stake end and crimp them tight.

I'll be missing a couple at the end of the season, but I got extra.

For my water traps I drill two 1/8" holes in the base and attatch with rivets. I havent had one come off yet.

I use wire ties, small black ones. They don't boil off and have been real satisfied since I started with them years ago. Doesn't anyone else use them?
