A buddy of mine had a coon getting into a bulk feed tote. He’s a beaver trapper and put a ts85 on top of that tote and had his problem coon a day or two later. Worked like a body grip.

I HAVE a TS ~85 outside. Modified for mt lions. Its Very nice. But I have had a little to much bourbon to set it right now. Might be willing to take a picture if it though. LoL ! Who wants to see it ?

I can't see in the picture if they did anything to cure the lose jaw being held up by lever twist after you four coil them or not. If you set it and the loose jaw is higher than the other jaw, the way I cured that was by welding a small chunk of key stock (same stuff your laminations are made of) on the lever where the held jaw touches. Looks nice though. I've one that I laminated with that keystock all the way to the jaw hinges, and two dozen that I used flat stock to laminate just across the top and barely over the corners. I waffle on which I like better, the weak point on those TS 85s is their jaws where they are scalloped on the sides. Stick a hammer handle in one and set it off and you will see what I mean, they will bend there when four coiled. The laminations clear to the hinge strengthen that, but they also create a lot more jaw surface to drive up through the crust. Trapping in your country there would be no debate, I would laminate them all like yours, but I worry that the extra jaw surface could cause them not to come up through a frozen crust. I haven't had a problem with the one I did that way, so it may be a moot point, but I'll give it another winter and see what I think.

I'd like to try one of those LPC 8's, but the cost of a dozen of them!

Now you know how we wolf trappers feel lol. I'll bury someone if I catch them stealing wolf gear. Doesn't say anywhere in the regs about not using carcasses of thieves for bait! Lol

Easier on the thigh when setting. Also first pull foot slides to one side allowing the opposite lever to lock up even higher.

It's the way they come. I go back and forth on whether I prefer it there or in the center. I like the center better if I am staking under the trap, because I am digging a hole under the trap for the chain to go in anyways. If I am staking off to the side or putting it on a drag I prefer the D-ring off to the side, especially in the frozen ground I am dealing with right now. Bent two digging hammers the other day chopping out three trap beds, finally had to go to the Pulaski.
