Rated 4 out of 5 by Joshmck Good for price For their price, they are a good trap without any modifications. They will get the job done, but are not optimal. The chains being offset aren't the best, but with the #3's you can actually move it to underneath the base to give more of a center swivel. The biggest challenge with these traps would be the length of the dog and the amount of pan movement. Right out of the box, I would say these are not the best of traps whatsoever. But with good adjustments (not modifications and not adding anything) you can actually make these decent. Just have to night latch the dog. Also, if you are trying to decide between the #1.75 and the #2's, if I remember right, they only have a quarter inch jaw spread difference. So when closed, its only an extra 1/8 inch up on the paw. I would go with the #1.75. I've caught plenty of fox, coons, mink, muskrat, etc on the 1.5's. But for all my fox traps I've center swiveled them, which is not needed. If you plan on bobcat or coyotes, I would move to the #3 or the #1.75. It will take more time to do your sets on the #3 but cover more area. Plus you can center swivel the trap which makes it harder for the coyote to get out. With it chain being attached to the side, yotes can put out the jaws on these smaller traps. A quick weld can help with that. But overall, these are good traps, if and only if, you take the time to adjust them (like night latch). If not, you're in for a headache. April 12, 2013
