Before treating traps, I check swivels, nametag and general condition of trap.
I set trap to make sure pan sits where I want it and to see if trap needs tuning. Then I dry fire trap to see how it closes.
Just like sighting in a rifle, I check & retune each trap, if needed.

When cleaning traps or preparing to boil or dip, check each spring for dirt, mud or debris. Clean spring if clodded, this may hold foreign odors.
