id put at least 3 heavy duty swivels ,#2 chain ,make sure the pan is not wobbly .if you have a welder you can base plate and laminate ,i use all 1 3/4 for land now ,i used mostly 1 1/2s before ,then coyotes started moving in and destroying my traps ,now i go with all 1 3/4 as i find it a great universal trap for all critters im catching .all my 1 1/2s are used for water traps

Hmmmm, are you really sure this is the case?????

I can't even think of how many coyotes and cats I have taken with the Modified Duke 1.5's. Only thing that limits you is jaw spread and that is eliminated by showing them where YOU want them to step.
