These powerful spring traps are suitable for tackling mink and rabbits. They are no longer legal in the UK for trapping STOATS
Their springs are extremely strong, and they are more than capable of breaking the bones in a human hand. Safety catches are fitted, and they should be used whenever the trap is being moved or adjusted. We have provided a video which demonstrates how these robust galvanised traps should be set, and it can be found just to the right of this text.
You are required by law to use these traps in a natural or artificial tunnel. The approx internal sizes of the tunnel should be 170mm wide x 170mm high x 550mm long. Check traps at least twice daily and take any measures possible to prevent non-target species from gaining access to the trap.
For smaller vermin like weasels and rats, we recommend MK. 4 Solway spring traps.
The proposed ban on these traps for use on STOATS has now been defered until 2019.
