Snares and Snaring

We recently have had a couple of extensive threads about snares. I thought it might be helpful to conduct a poll on snares and snaring. One of the questions will be about locks. I can?t possibly cover all the locks that are out there, so I?m only listing a few. There are a number of locks that are very similar in function and design but go by different brand names. I?m going to picture a few locks below, and designate them by type. Hopefully this will help make the choices clearer in the poll. You can select your "type" even if it is not exactly the same.



A. Bent Washer (including solid washers) Type, B. Thompson Type, C. 180? Bent Washer Type, D. Cam Lock Type, E. Gregerson Type
