An Old American Animal Trap.
This old animal trap is of the double sprung design. There is a spring each end of the jaws whereas the more common traps like the British gin traps have only one spring.
This trap is also foldable, the springs are not permanently fixed to the jaws. This makes it easy to fold and to fit in ruck-sacks etc.
Made by North Woods II, U.S.A.
Made from iron. Size 12″ inches.
