these are what we are talking about. not the safety's on the trap itself. http://www.amazon.com/Pete-Rickard-Mens-Conibear-Safety/dp/B009205B2Q you can get them cheaper i just wanted you to see the pic.NRA said:Yes I did use the safety hooks. It was a brand new trap out of the box and when I set the trigger the safety catches kept coming loose. It was hard to notice in the dark. I think once it rusts up some they will stay put better. Good idea about carrying rope for just such an occasion. Caught my hand just above my thumb. When I tried to pull it out it just clamped down harder. It took me a few minutes to get the darn thing off.
2x i also carry on a lanyard just have to be careful which way the current is going or the lanyard can wrap the trigger.Bob Jamison said:I personally believe that a safety should be mandatory equipment when handling 330s. I carry one on a call lanyard around my neck, and use it on EVERY 330 I handle.
