Just Fine


Seriously.. The square that makes up the jaw frame is at it's maximum dimension when in the set position. As soon as the trap is fired and the frames start to close that dimension becomes smaller releasing them from the tube

Does that closing action tend to thrust the trap outward toward the critter while clearing itself from the tile using the ribs as push off points? Very interesting looking set!

Hard to tell.

You would think so but I still get some single strikes at the base of the skull. I maintain the triggers on my 110's, with sloppy triggers it may be more noticeable. I worked this up for a special situation and muskrats,not a bad setup for mink. Traps are 110 BMI with the "magnum jaw". The only 110 I'll use in a non drowning situation for mink.You will need to check if the 110 traps you have will work, dimensions differ.

Randy,

Yes, the long wires in a "circle" shape lessen the # of mink that can slip through. For muskrats not necessary but sure don't hurt anything

I think I should get some of them. I like 110's inside of tiles also, I have to bend out my triggers but the triggers you use will help ALOT! Thanks Ric!

"Sullivan's Circle Triggers" are still available. That is the cost effective way to convert 110's. Most have trigger wires to short to achieve the desired result.

I got some circle triggers from Hal last year at our convention and I like them a lot. I also got some of his 330 triggers and they are definitely an improvement over factory ones.
