Now there's a hands on learning experience you'll both laugh at for years to come. Lucky you had a helper with you, could have been way worse.

Stay calm and go and get the &#@%ing setter...Glad your ok- time to make some paracord necklaces for back-up

I don't think anyone makes a "no-hands" setter

Anybody that traps much will end up wearing one at some point. I have done it more than once, slow learner.

As bad as it hurts getting your hand in there the most painful part is always when you hit the end of the chain running.


I have nothing clever to put here.

FYI Don't final tune adjust the springs with the trap across your thigh standing there setting it. When it goes off its too close to the goodies!

I was lucky when I joined th3 330 club. It was laying flat on ice, set, when it fired off one safety broke & one held . Jumped off the ice & grabbed me just above the wrist. One spring is more than I ever want to do again !!!

For sure about being glad you weren't trapping alone. Unless your name is Houdini, you're not getting out with both hands caught in a 330.

Lol I've been caught by one hand on more than one occasion but thankfully I've never been nailed by both at once. That's one of those things that'll make your hemorrhoids shoot out there like a rose bud on a long stem.

I got fingers caught in 330 once , it hurt for weeks on thumb , i don't like 330s, for that, 280 is probly worse, not lot use for them as got be complely submerged, with 330s only, I have tongs within reach, when setting. Out even, I do not want both hands in 1 ever. I alwsys byself, u would be fine, in trouble with both hands in 1, emergency. , U never ever want that happen no matter what

Tom sez "where's the safety grippers?" But you already explained that your safety grippers (hand) failed for some reason. Leastways, thats what i always use for safety grippers!

Welcome to the club.
