Big8s, sounds like it wasn't a nightlatch but a Dobbins short latch.

Now that we have answered the easy question:

What are the advantages if any to the nightlatch over the dobbins short latch other than the obvious one I already thought of (click)?

Big 8. You might have more money than me, but I would just weld a bead on the end of the pan and make a new lip. Wouldn't take much.

Redneck Cowboy - "Disadvantages-if a yote,bobcat or fox was to trip it it could end up with a toe catch and pull out"

Just another example of why kids should not be giving trapping advice on here!

Allows you to bed the trap on a high pan which reduces the chances of snapping while being bedded. Once the trap is bedded, the jaws can be held with the thumb and index finger and the pan lowered.
