Lets just say that hypothetically, of course, someone were to wax their 120's and now they can't set them without them going off instantly. How would this person remove the new wax without removing the dye? This is not about me...cough cough. Should I boil them?

Take a piece of emery cloth for cleaning copper, or a piece of sand paper and sand the spot on the jaw the dog latches on. Scrape it until you see clean metal. Do the same on the dog notches, the spot on the spring that the safety latches latch onto and also the inside of the hook on the latch. Next time you decide to wax your conibears, put a piece of tape on the jaw where the dog notch sits, also put a piece on the springs where the safety latches hook on. Wax the conibears and take a piece of emery cloth and clean out the dog notch's and safety latch hooks until you see bare clean metal. Take off the tape from the jaw and springs. Set the trap and you won't have any problems. That 2" section of trap that doesn't have any wax is not going to hurt anything. It's so much easier to spray paint conibears. But even then you have to clean the dog notch and jaw
