Modifying The Sear On An MB-650 Coyote Trap

After I bought my first MB-650 dogless trap, I soon realized it would not work as-is. The rotating sear was too high to fit under the pan, even though the jaws were fully spread. This made it impossible to set.

Time to modify it then. I searched Google and found a lot of information on MB-650’s, but nothing dealt with fixing the too-high sear problem.

So I decided, while I fixed mine, I should document the procedure in case it’s helpful for someone else. Hope you enjoy the video (the best solution evolves as it goes along) and, by all means, share your own suggestions.
