Oneida Victor® Soft Catch® Wildlife Trap Setting Instructions

1. All land traps should be staked with the factor chain. A lap link may be added to facilitate staking. Do not add extra chain, except for use with a drag or grapple.

2. Traps should be set in such a manner that large sticks, limbs and brush will not interfere with the animal's movement in the trap.

3. Traps may be dyed and waxed, but the Oneida Victor® Soft Catch® should be waxed with the jaws closed to allow the soft pads to work properly. Flex pad with thumb to remove wax as some types of wax may act as a lubricant.

4. Pan bolts must be tightened so the pan will hold its own weight and not fall without being depressed (or 1 lb. weight). End of dog should engage trigger. For best results, pan must be level or slightly above the level of the jaws in the set position.

 

5. Stake chain outside of trap on loose jaw side to right or left of cross to facilitate bedding spring-in-chain.

6. When setting trap, do not force dog over edge of pad to push down as this tends to roll pad edge under the dog. Depress springs, push jaws down, flip dog over jaw so it pushes down flat on pad. Otherwise trap may fire prematurely.

7. In frozen soil, mix a tablespoon of calcium chloride with the dirt to prevent freezing. (Calcium chloride has no odor for the animal to detect and may be reduced to powder in a blender if it is done a cup at a time. However, trap must be waxed to prevent rusting which could cause the animal to detect the trap.)

8. A cone shaped trap bed will facilitate trap bedding.

Note:
In most cases, sprung traps are a result of improper pan adjustment or improper bedding. Also, if the pan isn't adjusted, an animal can be caught off the pads on the jaw stops and possibly injured.

 

 

Pad Replacement
To replace pads (A) unscrew three screws and remove protective cover. (B) depress springs with feet and open jaws, (D) replace with new pads. Place one hand around a jaw with the palm side of your hand against the face of the pad and squeeze hard as you re-attach the cover with the three screws. Then repeat with the other jaw. This keeps the pad held securely under the cover so when the trap is in sprung position, the pads should just touch or have a very slight space between them. Do not force the cover screws down too tight, just tight enough to secure the cover over the pad so when you push down on the edge of the pad away from the edge of the cover, it will be secure and not pull out. Do not over-tighten.



Oneida Victor® Trap Pan Adjustment Setting Instructions

For fox, coyote, coon and similar weight animals:

On coil spring traps, the adjusting bolt on the pan shank may be tightened to eliminate smaller animals.

Tighten the pan bolt (turn bolt in completely, then back out) to lightly hold 6" pliers (approximately one pound). Place the tip of the dog in the trigger slot just enough to catch the tip.

For water trapping with uncovered traps:

Set pan slightly higher than jaws to catch swimming animals.

Pan should be level with jaws for a land set, trap door effect. Raise or lower the pan by bending the dog-end of the cross.



Oneida Victor® Stop Loss® Trap Setting Instructions

To set Stop Loss® Traps

Make sure pan adustments are complete. (Figure 1) Raise pan to upright position. Pull "STOP LOSS®" guard back over jaws until the end of the guard rests on the trap spring. Lower the pan over the "STOP LOSS®" guard. Depress trap spring and end of the "STOP LOSS®" guard together. Open trap jaws and set trap in conventional way.

For Delayed Action - (No.1 Size Only)

Slide delayed action pin in groove in guard under top leaf of spring with both ends pointing upward. Turn pin ends downward into locked position.



Montgomery Traps® #2 F.O.J. Pan Adjustment Trap Setting Instructions

To set Montgomery Traps® #2 F.O.J. Pan Adjustment Traps

1. Slightly file notch square 1/16 down from the top. (Approx. halfway down) See Figure 1.

2. Check pan level. If not level, place a #2 Phillips Screwdriver under the pan on the top of the spring pin. Depress slightly by applying downward pressure in front of the screwdriver on the pan. See Figure 2. Recheck pan level.
