After a full season of using my topless traps, the hog rings are falling off and very rusty.  I've been replacing them with nylon zip ties.  I keep a bag on board and replace them when I need to.  So far they have been great, no rusting and haven't broken one yet.  Anyone else using them on their traps?

Dave I have about 5 pounds of larger sized stainless hog rings if you want some....

Were the original ones not stainless?

Yeah, I'm also using zip ties....that is until I get some SS rings.  That's my only issue with kevin's traps is the door rings.

Thanks Seaweed!  Nope, the hog rings were some other type of metal and they are in bad shape.  I'm going out Saturday for a little while.  I should be back at the house before breakfast if my spot produces.

I use the black zip ties on my traps except on the doors. Since I made my own traps and hog rings, I just replace them as needed. They are so easy to make and practically cost me nothing, I have enough for years. Most of the rings on the doors on going on 2 years.

Dave, the better quality zip ties will last a long time, I have had some on traps that I made 4 years ago, and they are still fine.  I use the ones that are wider, they tend to keep they door from binding, so they open and close nice.
