Long Spring Traps are among the most traditional foot-hold restraining devices used to catch and hold wild animals. Like other foot-hold traps, Long Spring Traps are manufactured from steel components but are powered by tempered steel springs that extend out from the trap. Long Spring Traps by design are very secure in holding power and are preferred by trappers for this reason. The extra guard spring keeps the muskrat's body away from their feet to prevent escapes. Never have another muskrat escape with the Duke Guard Trap.
