TS-85 Beaver Trap
The TS-85 beaver trap is truly revolutionary in it's simplicity. The first beaver trap to feature an 8 1/2" jaw spread. The TS-85 has heavy .187" thick custom made music wire springs, a fully adjustable pan for both tension and travel, a heavy 3/8" welded baseplate, and riveted jaws. This trap offers superior holding power through precision design in the curvature built into the jaws, which allows the levers to lock up as the trap closes. Comes complete with 8" of TS-85 chain, and 2 Crunch-proof swivels.
Be sure to set the TS-85 (or any trap) so the beaver steps between the jaws, as opposed to over the loose jaw. A large beaver’s back foot may actually span a smaller trap’s jaw spread if it’s stepping over the loose jaw, much like you might step on a beaver trap with your boot across the jaws to fire it. The TS-85 is a great choice for top wolf and mountain lion trappers when modified.
Check your local trapping regulations to ensure that an 8 1/2" jaw spread is legal in your state.
