Bridger #5 Offset Laminated
One of our largest traps suitable for wild dogs. 4 coil springs, offset and laminated jaws. Plenty of power to hold the largest of dogs. Comes with 20cm length of quality black chain ending in a half swivel.
95 x 75mm pan. Inside jaw spread 181 x 178mm. Outside jaw spread 203 x 187mm.
What is offset? Offset jaws mean the jaws do not touch they have a gap when closed. In the Bridger #5 they have a 1/4 inch gap. What is laminated? Lamination strips (steel strips) are welded onto the jaws to make them thicker. Why use offset laminated jaws? Offset laminated jaws have been proven to be more humane than standard steel jaw traps. By thickening the jaw and offseting them the impact pressure of the trap on the animals foot is much reduced while still providing the same holding ability.
Steel jawed - so only available to Qld and WA customers due to state legislation. If you are in another state check out the Bridger #5 Rubber Jaw model. Rubber does not mean they wont hold as well.
We also highly recommend having a look at the WTS #5 Dogless traps.
