When the state of Arizona passed a law that you had to use a shock spring on your trapping rigs, I decided to make my own. I felt I could make one as good or better than what was on the market, and designed the first "Slide Action Shock Spring" using 1/2" half-round material. Heavy Duty and Coyote Proof. Later, due to the time involved in welding, plus the increased demand, I came out with the T-Bar Slide Action™ Shock Spring which is also coyote proof.
I prefer an 18-inch to 20-inch chain system with a minimum of three swivels, a shock spring and a double stake ring. With this setup, when the animal pulls, he's always pulling away from the stake. In using a short chain rig, an animal has a tendency to pull upward, pumping your stake out of the ground. I like using plenty of swiveling to prevent lock-up from grass, trash and other debris. I also use shorter or longer chain rigs, depending on what the set location tells me.
Best designed shock spring on the market. The only one of its kind. Decreases the shock to the animal, minimizing foot and shoulder injury, and keeps the stake from being pumped out of the ground. Die cut T-Bar™ with 1/4" hole to allow for easy hook-up. Supplied with lock washers.
