Has anyone had experience using the Hagz brackets? Are they effective?

They work just fine In certain situations.
But In my opinion they are a seasonal tool. What I mean by that Is they seem to work a lot better In a true spring season. In my area rats just don't seem to work that kind of a set In the fall or in open water In the winter. So It's really not the bracket It's self It's the set. And of coarse you have to use those 3/8ths fiberglass fence poles.

I haven't used any of the BG brackets so I can't comment on their use.

Do you use foothold or conibear more on the 3/8 rods?

I don't use them alot for baited platform sets. I use them alot for hut and feedbed sets where I can't get the trap to trap to set just right.

You could use them for top edge sets

I have one on each of my muskrat traps. With footholds, I mostly use them like Sniper stated. I use a lot of bottom edges with the conibears. All of them with the 3/8" rod.

Used them with great success this spring with a carrot on the bait holder. Did not get a chance to try them in the fall yet.

What do you mean you have one on each of your muskrats traps? Did you weld them to your traps?

Nope. Just attached to the chain end with a j-hook.
