if there is any play in the pan it can have alot to do with the amount of tension that the trap will go off at also i would put a nightlatch on them so you can tell when they are hot and ready to go. The audible click lets you know no more fingers in the trap cuz yer askin for it. I have many traps that have a very limited amount that they can be adjusted or tinkered with and they are hard to know when there hot and when they will go off so i set the with a hard nightlatch and have the dogs filed flat on the front face and angled on the bottom side also the top of the dog is filed to have a single point of contact with the pan so it sets harder into the pan but still have them smooth and fast but more realible in that you know that it will hold. Hope that this will help. Rooney(TC1 Wildlife control)
