It's not needed but it does help some if you have a multi catch. Rats tend to expire with there teeth locked onto the wire a lot and the bite bar makes it so that if a caught rat is locked into the wire there is a 2 Inch space before the door hinge, this way the door can still open up and catch the next rat passing through

what is this 'bite bar' you guys are referring to? pics would be appreciated. could dm too so not to thread jack

Instead of the door hinging on the top of the trap, there is a drop down usually 2" then the door. Works fine but not necessary

Clip 2 wires on either side of the front of the door and bend them up to keep it from getting pushed out backwards by a mink that way the door gets pushed on and it wedges against those wires I'll take a pic to show you in a minute

Thanks Jason! And thanks for the idea I got it from you hahaand there is a few other ways to mink proof the doors to I weave a heavy wire in the door to stiffen it and I double over the edge of the door to stiffen it more as well

 It's 10X better when you can have that frosty beverage inside with momma while the kids put the fur up!
