Re: Bridger #2 Coil Spring Brand New prepping the dog?
Sounds like you need to tighten up the brass pan screw until you have a bit of tension on the pan. The pan should not be able to move on its own, and most people prefer 2-4lbs of pressure to set off the set trap for canines and cats.
Skunk is right. Bend the frame where the dog attaches until you get the pan to set level. I use a big pair of pliers. While you're at it, use the pliers to pinch the eye of the dog shut so it isn't so sloppy either. File the ends up square and you're ready to go.
