The Bridger #1.65 coilspring trap has an outside jaw spread of 5 7/16”. It is available in a regular (closed jaw) option or with an offset (3/16 gapped) jaw. You also have a choice of a two or four coil trap. We recommend this size trap for fox, raccoon, or opossum. Comes stock with baseplate and center swiveled D-Ring.
What is the difference between a regular and offset jaw?
When the trap is in the fired position and you are looking straight down on the trap if the jaws touch together it is a regular or closed jaw trap. If there is a gap where the jaws meet that is called an offset jaw trap.
What is the difference between a 2-coil or 4-coil trap?
A 2-coil trap has a pair of main springs on the same side as the dog. A 4-coil trap has a second pair of springs on the opposite side as the dog. Typically, most 4-coil springs are smaller in size than the main springs.
