lamination, I use a 1/4" round rod on the top of the jaw for dispersion of the power and to help on any reduction of problems, I found i had fewer raccoon escapes with offsets when I first expiermented with them in about 1980.

I thought forums like this were for sharing information and learning. Guess I was wrong? Naw......

the damage ruggedexposure got is probably due to no laminations and a hard fighter.

The J Hooks that PIT PANs sells are advertised to be 20% stronger than any other on the market. I have found Ed to be knowledgeable and honest, and I believe him.

I use the heavy duty j rivets, maybe if you have wolves or cougars you need something heavier, or weld them.

I use mb550 reg jaws and they all have swivel at base ,3 links of chain ,another swivel, shockspring, another swivel ,3 more links of chain and another swivel. This does not give them any room to put alot of force on the trap. They cant run or jump to get much leverage. I could go without the springs and still feel confident that no damage would occur from a short chain swivel set up.

short chain, focus is on the trap then, if they move a heavy trap around they get tired and lay down, short chain has a problem with them focusing on the trap,imo
