Senneker-Elite Breakaway Devices
The finest line of Breakaway Devices in existence. Currently built in 5 different sizes to accommodate the varying needs and personal touches of each and every trapper. Though a simple s-hook, these devices have been specifically manufactured for breakaway snare function with quality material and precision/uniformity.
Please be aware, when using these devices that the kill spring will affect the release point of the BAD as it cushions the BAD. This is a plus on target game but can become a negative on large game and livestock until the spring is fully bottomed out. Because of this fact, use a lighter s-hook BAD when using the torsion spring kill springs than you would without.
Our Stinger Kill Spring system is designed to work in conjunction with an s-hook breakaway. The s-hook creates a necessary pivot point for the snare lock to function when a kill spring is used.
We highly recommend that a breakaway device is used on all upland snares to reduce/eliminate potential bycatch.
NEVER TIE SNARES OFF WITH WIRE AS LIVESTOCK AND BIG GAME CAN READILY BREAK WIRE. Keep your non-targets around long enough for BAD to function.
