Fox Trap Assembly and setting instructions
Unpack and inspect the trap
Flat pack fox trap only, lift the panel's and temporarily make the cage to size, turn the cage so that it stands vertically on the open end, position the end panel and locate the fixing tabs, fold these tabs and locate them in a mesh hole approximately two squares from the end of the cage, fold the end of the tab through the hole, bend and pull it with a pair of pliers, fix the others in the same way ensuring the trap remains "square"
trap onto the end panel and locate the slide assembly, fit the slide assembly
to the open end making sure the mesh fits inside the angle frame (pressure on
the mesh side panel's will help to get the mesh inside the angle of the slide
assembly) and the slide guides are at the top of the trap ( the top can be identified
by locating the setting bar that is clipped to the top panels of the cage) Fit
the clips onto the slide assembly and one by one clip these to
the mesh three holes in from each side, these clips can be folded over using pliers to
make the trap more rigid
Place the trap on the ground with the slide guides vertical, side the door into the guides, locate the setting bar and pull it so that the door rests on the setting bar at approximately the 2nd hole in the bottom of the door, run the bait wire along the underside of the top panel of the cage and 6 inches from the end of the cage bring the bait hook through , open the small bait door at the back of the trap and attach suitable bait to the hook (kipper, half cooked bacon, mackerel etc) and firmly tie or wire the bait to the hook, wrap the bait wire round the bait to take up any slack, place the hook back around the wire to secure.
The optional treadle utilizes the bait wire to hook the treadle The bait wire is passed under the RHS of the treadle and hooked on the LHS of the underside of the treadle. Make sure that any slack in the wire is taken up, reposition the hook if needed, as the treadle is stepped on the bait wire and setting bar is pulled and the door drops, to open the door press in at the base and slide the door up.
Please note the cage is not designed to transport the captured animal
