So that wire loop will pin down whats caught... i see... a picture is worth a thousand words LOL.
How would that work on a coon though, dont seem like that would be enough to do much, looks like it would work great for muskrats and mink though.

Hillbilly cool

I catch several coon and beaver,each year in that trap.Biggest coon this year--34 pounds.
That trap you are looking at ,has a very good spring.The key to holding coon and beaver in rat sets---is staking and a strong spring.A lathe or willow stick aren't going to do it.My rat stakes ,are 1 inch square and made of hardwood--4 to 6 feet in length.I also connect trap to stake with cable and snap clips--no wire whatsover.

Boggy, I did'nt see a Delay pin on the chain.
You helped design the trap, or should I say designed it?
Whats your thoughts on a Delay pin ?

A delay pin is not needed.When a delay pin gets hung up it means a lost rat.
I went several years without using a pin.It didn't affect my catch at all.
