I use the Freedom Brand Quick Grip setters - makes compressing the springs pretty easy whether your getting the trap ready to set or removing a catch. Definitely worth the money IMHO.

Setters are definitely worth it. If you're a bit accident prone or don't have the best grip, getting the self-locking setters or the caulking gun type setters. And have two pairs, i actually have 4 pair, in case you leave one at the last stop. Also have a good 6ft piece of rope as a backup setter.

Some guys can set em by hand, i can on my older traps. Gets a bit trickier with an animal in them. Definitely dont want to rely on hand or rope setters if you're using 330s in snapping turtle season.

Yes! Buy a pair and ALWAYS keep them within arms reach when setting large conibears. You will eventually need them to get yourself out of the trap.

I've come to keeping mine in the truck. I've got the sleepy creek aluminum ones. I set by hand but it's getting to be not as easy. I think the springs are getting stronger, lol.

Get the caulking gun type setters. You only need one hand to use them.

Yes Warrior the springs on mine are getting stronger also. I have what I think are Bridgers . [Linked Image]

I think they are worth every penny, but the Beav is right the ones he is talking about can be used with one hand .
