Great idea coon duke, I used to pile rocks, sandbag, chunk of sod, anything to set those culverts. That’s why I always complain about us losing our ROW’s, these big culverts are great locations, and often the only drowning water on a stream

Great idea I'm definitely using that. My method of cinder block to get to the top edge is pretty cumbersome. Thanks.

How much do the "C" clamps cost?


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Someone was definitely not thinking when they named those wider clamps


Gotta live up to the nickname...

I used a number 9 wire configuration back In the 80s and 90s it just snaped on the end of the Calvert, you could bend it up or down to get the trap to set flat. The down fall was coon would trash it often.

Need to remember this. Wonder if the rock is needed as the traps is very evident on top of the rock anyway

Do you not use the clamp for the anchor point for the chain too? That would be a no brainer to, I would think.

You could also make it somewhat thief proof by cutting the handle rod off of the clamp and using a rod or screwdriver to attach the clamp.
