Sterling Grizz Instructions

Sterling Grizz Dog Proof Raccoon Trap

Sterling Grizz Instructions:

This instruction guide will help you get started on the use and procedures of the Sterling Grizz dog proof coon trap.

Placement of bait in the Sterling Grizz\

Grasp the Grizz trap by the base or by the Twistloc Anchor System with one hand, while holding the trigger down with your thumb. This causes the trigger inside end to swivel up toward the opening in the top of the Grizz. Place bait into the opening of the Grizz and push the bait down until it is under the trigger. (NOTE: Any type of cut bait can be used such as fresh fish. Cut bait into chunks large enough to fit under the trigger. Jumbo marshmallows also work well.)

Alternate baits under the trigger include: large cotton ball, sheep wool, and/or a sponge soaked in lure. Jumbo marshmallows work very well placed under the coon from stealing the marshmallow without triggering the Grizz trap. When using cut bait , make sure the bait is not too large to fit under the trigger. Too large of a bait under the trigger will cause the trigger to 'creep ' and possibly misfire. In freezing weather, do not let cut bait contact trigger.

DO NOT fill the inside of the Grizz to the top with bait! You want to catch the coon not feed it. Too much bait will bind up the trigger, making it harder to 'set' the Grizz and can cause the coon to be caught by the toes, which may result in the coon pulling out. Paste type baits can be placed below and up to underside of the trigger. Types of paste baits: commercially prepared raccoon paste bait, mashed sardines, or mackerel. The Sterling Grizz is ready to be set.

How to "set" The Sterling Grizz, version 1 & 2

1) Grasp the Grizz with both hands and the dog and the double torsion spring faced away from you. Now put both hands and the dog and the double torsion spring faced away from you. Now put both thumbs on the cylindrical backside part  of the Grizz while placing both index fingers on or just under the restraint bar end loops. Now pull back on the double torsion spring. (NOTE: Pulling back on the double torsion spring causes the restraint bar to retract back inside through the restraint bar slots and to be hidden under the opening of the Grizz.) While the double torsion spring is pulled back, flip the dog over the double torsion spring and hold it down using your middle finger of one hand, then use the thumb and index finger of the opposite hand to position the end of the dog into the trigger "notch." The Sterling Grizz is now "set."

2) Place the Grizz trap with the spring side down and the dog extended out on a hard surface, such as; a flat rock, piece of plywood, 2X4, etc. Take a stick, screw driver handle, piece of pipe, etc., that the diameter of such is a little smaller the the opening of the Grizz trap and have it ready to use. 1) Take your palm and push down on the body of the Grizz trap to compress the spring. 2) While the spring is compressed, insert the stick, handle, etc. into the opening of the Grizz trap and continue setting it as explained in the first version.

How the Twistloc Anchor System Works

The Twistloc Anchor System is designed to anchor the Sterling Grizz in many types of positions, whether vertically, horizontally, or any other positions in between. In dirt, mud, clay soils, just push the Grizz down and in until it bottoms out against the base of the Grizz. Now turn the Grizz 1/4 turn to lock in place. (NOTE: When the Twistloc Anchor System is pushed into the ground, it makes a "slot". When turned 1/4 turn, the Twistloc Anchor System displaces the ground below it. In effect, when the Sterling Grizz is pulled upward, the Twistloc has to create a new "slot" in order for the Grizz to be removed.) Without the Twistloc, dogs and other large animals can knock over the Grizz A raccoon working the trigger would simply pick up the Grizz. With the Grizz locked in place, the Grizz is resistant to come out of the ground until the raccoon "works" the trigger. Once caught the raccoon pulls the Grizz out by force. A stake or drowner cable set u at the end of the chain keeps the raccoon at the set area.

Position of the Sterling Grizz

When positioning the Grizz on a slope, such as a 45 degree cut bank, point the dog on the Grizz trap down at approximately the 5 or 7 o'clock position . In the this position, the raccoon works the set more efficiently resulting in a better catch. On level ground, position the Grizz where the dog won't strike and solid objects once the raccoon triggers the trap.

Rust Protection

To prevent rust and to protect the Grizz from corrosion, wither use a "speed dip" trap coating or paint the trap with a good quality spray paint. For better visibility for coon, paint or dip the Grizz "white". For competition or theft areas, paint or dip the Grizz brown and camouflage the set area. Camouflage by raking up leaves debris around the trap but not interfering with the trap's function, leave trap hole visible so the coon can see the bait. (NOTE: On speed dips, use as light of a coating as possible and set the Grizz upright so the excess dip runs out the drain hole in the bottom of the trap.)

Staking Sytem

On dry land application, use either rebar stakes or pull proff stakes. Use the stock chain set up or shorten slightly, but DO NOT lengthen the chain, What I mean by lengthen the chain is having 2' or more chain on the trap. This causes the raccoon to "hit " the end of the chain causing damage to the raccoon and possibly resulting in a pullout.

Water Sets

Whenever possible use drowning sets. I recommend slide or wire cable, cable being the best option. In non-drowning situations, use the stock chain set up. (NOTE: In making a coon set with the sterling Grizz , be sure to remove any debris around the set area.)  This prevents the raccoon from grasping objects in trying to pull itself free. If you do not remove debris from the set area, the result could be a pullout from the raccoon grasping objects. Also debris in the set area can render the swivels inoperable, resulting in damage to the raccoon.

Miscellaneous Hints

BAIT-  Solid type chuck baits such as fish can be used very successfully if the bait is cut into 3/4 to 1' chunks, spear and center on trigger. Additional bait can be placed on top pf the Grizz to entice the raccoon to work the trap. Paste bait, fruit/fish, have worked successfully placed under the trigger... even mini-marshmallows.

CATS- When trapping around houses, barns, etc., where cats are present, use a non-meat type bait. Usually marshmallows on trigger are excellent for cat proof sets as cats are not usually attracted to sweet type baits, unless very hungry. Push marshmallows on trigger and center.

GROUND CONDITIONS-  If you trap in hard ground such as clay banks, simply push the Grizz straight in without turning the Twistloc Anchor System.

ROCKS & LOGS-  The Grizz can be successfully used in cracks in logs and rocks. Just push in the Twistloc Anchor System in the crack and wedge the trap in place.
