What kind of swivels are those on the D ring?

They are PIT swivels made by Ed Medvetz. I use them on all my traps, they lay nice and flat.

Not trying to be critical but, You'll have better swiveling if ya attach the J hook to the D ring were its closer to the trap and guarded better. So it can't clog so easily.

Ups just delivered one Alpha, first impression, very well built, pan was level, nite latch very definite click, pan tension 3 1/2 lbs, will see what it is once it's waxed, definitely going to order at least on more dz. Great job MB

Got a dozen, added more chain and a swivel and welded the j hooks, Grahamís screen seemed to work better than the black coated stuff. First impressions seem good, will get them in the ground soon.

didn't read the thread, but looks like it's a 1/16th of an inch too wide for PA.

This may have been covered but is MB going to offer a 4 coiled version?

It was decided not too because of the added cost. They are easy to install, I've been using the MF2 helper springs. .90 per set or 11.00 per dozen. The MF1s aren't quit a stiff so you can add the power to match your conditions. I've used up 1.5 music wire springs without issues but they are a bit rough to set. 750 setters work well with the 4 coiled Alpha #3s.
I run all 4 coiled with my lake effect weather!

I caught my first coyote in an alpha yesterday. It was a perfect catch. I did have to tighten up pan tension on them once waxed, with 5/16 and 3/8 nut drivers. I hope the dogless setup holds up, its kind of an awkward connection of the pan to the somewhat rounded mold of the cast jaw. Itís not a real square connection if that makes any sense. No complaints so far though.

It DOES make sense. Same connection as the Bridgers. You wouldn't think it would hold, but it does, perfectly. And helps the pan drop, instead of hanging up, and increasing the tension to make the pan fall.

Keep the faith, Baby! I tuned a bunch of Bridgers with the same set up, and they come out sweeeeet!

Congrtats, I wax with the pan floppy then after waxing I tighten the tension screw till I can't tighten anymore then back it off to prefered pan tension. Seems to hold tension better this way. The connection of the night latch was done on purpose. Like a fine rifle, no false drop. When setting Go past the the night latch and draw it down till it clicks..It takes a little getting used to but it will grow on ya.... Thanks Yuckonal, your welcome Blaine cty
