Adjusting the trap


Adjusting the trigger

Over time the trigger mechanism may become worn and may need some adjustment. With the trap open on a flat surface make small adjustments by bending the release plate (1) or the clip (2)


We recommend using a small pair of needle nose jewelers or electrical pliers.

ONLY make SMALL adjustments as trap parts are light weight and can bend out of a working range easily.


Adjusting the treadle stops

To prevent the treadle plate from lifting too far and allowing an animal to get caught. The treadle stops may need to be adjusted.


Like the trigger mechanism, only make small adjustments until the treadle is held down but not prevented from functioning.
