I cut my delay pin short and stick it in the hole in the end of the frame post.

A lot of guys would slide the delay bar over the stoploss spring and through the little hole in the front of the frame.That would work if you only stick it through a quarter inch or so,but I saw folks putting the delay bar all the way in and that usually results in it not pulling out at all thus not releasing the stoploss bar at all.Better the way I do it.Always releases.

I remember the Victor stoploss traps in the 70s. What a complicated piece of junk. The guard pushed up on the pan, and the pan had to swing all the way up for the guard to release (what if the animals foot was blocking it?). If you did get one to work better get a blueprint drawn up.....

They had that hump in the stoploss bar that the delay pin was suoppsed to go through,,but like you said if you set them the way designed you were lucky to get the pan to go down.

I had a muskrat laying dead beside a victor sl once. I must have set it backwards (layed the stoploss over the jaws instead of under) and the stoploss went off before he had a chance to get caught.It still got him....This was way back 40 years ago when I was a newb.
