I use #10 nails on the smaller traps. They’ll fit through the holes.

Yep, no problem. If you think you might get a coyote in it I would tack weld it shut though, just in case

You can add otter to that,as well.They are extremely powerful and may need more swivels.Rig traps and anchor for the largest,strongest animal that might encounter your traps.
