That makes an excellent trap. I generally prefer offset jaws for the higher lockup when something is between the jaws. I know the geometry of spring angle keeps the difference quite small. I will not attempt to calculate variance in 'foot' pounds of force. lol

Nice work, but is there something this trap will do that the trap as the manufacture designed it can't ? Will it catch more fur or does it just catch trappers who like to tinker?

There is no dog for the coyotes to crunch. No dog = one less thing on the trap to mess with while tuning the trap.

This mod is very popular right now. I have some B&ls at the shop right now to be swapped.

If thats the reason then why not just reinforce the dog? You can get the Big pan version from the factory if you feel that needed. That is a nice looking trap with all the mods but other than having a trap that looks nice and gives you bragging rights-Why?

It looks cool but I`ll stick with the ss rod dogs.I hate haveing to mess with a bolt to get the pan tension I want.Every time you catch something you have to adjust that stupid bolt.Or does the pressure of the springs make it have enough pan pressure with the pan being floppy.
