This 24” aluminum trap setter can be used to set body traps up through the 330 size, and long springs up through the #5 size. The model 4 has 2 U-clips, one for the smaller long springs and one for the #4 and #5 long springs. Weighs 24 oz.
The rubber plastic dip fell off setting a 330 after one use. Ill superglue back on but this caused me to lose one of the safeties that came with it in the water. Still a much better pair of setters than what I had before.
This is so much better than the rope set system I used to do w 330s. Much safer and quick. Not too heavy to carry and sturdy. I even use it on 160s once in a while for speed and ease. I really like it for those times I accidentally trigger a trap and have to reset-not near the hassle as before. I should note Im a very small hobby trapper but Im sure a production trapper would find this handy.
