If the chains are attached to the single springs, relocate them to the base plate on the side opposite the spring and an animal caught will pull towards the strongest area of the trap and that is where the spring is.

Wow. Didnt think it would hold coon. Might have to use it on a drowner for coons. Are longsprings stronger than coil springs of equal size?

I think coilsprings have a stronger grip than longsprings, but dont put anything past any of your traps. They can do pretty amazing things when you least expect it. I caught a 50 lb. beaver in a 1 1/2 coilspring this year.
