The Trap Man KisS3 Mink Trap Setting instructions. Unpack your trap from the box (if supplied) Locate the door locking bar and lift it up to the top, pull forward on the base of the door so that it opens to a horizontal position, grasp the setting bar which is on the top of the cage and bring it forward so that the top of the door rests under the very end of the setting bar, release pressure on the door, The trap is now set, place it along the path that the mink has made exiting the water, the cage should be covered over to produce a tunnel effect clear at both ends. Placing the trap on a log or beam suspended across a ditch proves effective as the mink will use this as a bridge to get to the other side. Baiting the trap by tying (with wire) flattened out mackerel to the bait hook or pressing tinned cat food into the small bait holder. Raise the carrying handle clear of the trap, to prevent your fingers being bitten by the captured animal.
Trap maintenance, periodically lubricate all moving parts using a smear of petroleum jelly. When the trap is laid up out of use wrap the whole trap in an oil soaked rag.
