A DOC200 with the ribbon up showing the trap has been set off.

The unstoppable Rod Burgoyne has now completed attaching ribbon markers to all the DOC200 stoat, weasel and rat traps in the field.  The ribbons add some efficiency to the trap checkers efforts by showing whether the trap has been sprung or not without having to look inside.

An open box showing the ribbon within the slot after being re-set.

When resetting or rebaiting the DOC200 traps please check the ribbon’s rope is placed back inside the slot before closing the lid.  This will ensure it does not slow the trap from shutting at the critical moment.

The trap set again ready to go with the ribbon on the ground.

Once the lid has been securely fastened shut place the ribbon in an obvious position on the ground beside the trap and it’s ready to go.
