I've seen where some people spray paint bodygrip traps. Would spray paint woth on footholds & live traps if they were painted well in advance of using them?

I paint all my water traps coils and body grips.
As far as K-9 traps I simply rust them then wax them. No use for me to dye them when they are burried any way.
If painted well in advance and left out to air painting for K-9 traps would probally be ok but....I have to use antifreeze on my traps and that rust them real bad and will weaken the springs. The paint doesn't do a real good job of protection in my opinion that is why I wax them.
good luck don

Thanks for the info! I have a few old (but unused) B&L & Victor 1 1/2 coilsprings that have never been rusted, dyed, or waxed. I will be using them for creek sets for mink next season. I will give them a coat of spray paint, then let them air until then.

Instead os just straight spray paint try the rustoleum type- nonrusting paint- its the same price as spray paint and also prevents rusting worked for me the last 2 years
