Why? Rust is the enemy of trap springs. Give a coat of camo spray paint to help them blend in and you're good to go.

Soak them in vinegar for a couple of hours then watch ‘em rust.

Yes rust oleum camo spray paint works good to blend them in. I paint all my 330's and dye my 220's that were dyed before I got them used.

I'm not saying dad is wrong but this day and age that is IMO an antiquated way of treating traps.
https://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-2...&hvtargid=pla-308069724859&psc=1 - this is what I use. I stack the traps so the over-spray isn't wasted. Spray one side brown then add a few strips of army green. Flip the traps over and paint the other side forest green and stripe it with the army green. Really any combo of 3 will work good. This is the same way I treat snares coiled together. Only difference is I only use a very light dusting on snares and a little better coverage on the body-grippers. No primer needed. Three cans will do A LOT of traps.

I can't see how a very light coat of rust that is then neutralized with logwood, walnut,shumac etc..Is weakening the springs to any degree that would effect the killing power. After all it was done this way for quite a few decades.
I have conis done this way and have some painted.
Maybe the painted ones would be faster, not sure. But I have never had a problem using dyed conis.
Ways with traps do evolve though. Try a few painted and see what you think

I run all my "water" bodygripers a year and dye and wax the second.........or is it just me that has to buy new traps during the season because I'm not organized enough to do it in the off season?

I'd never let my hammer and tools rust, same with my traps.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Probably work. I don't think black conibears blend as well as camo colors so I'd choose to add the brown and red rock colors. The Krylon is a rust preventative as well with better colors IMO.

Flat black works just fine if you're just using in water. That's what I do with my 330's. If you're using on the ground just use a color that blends with the surround vegetation.
