Hay thanks for all the  responses y'all gonna have to give some of this a try! Ok another question though, do y'all have any special tool to keep your springs inplace while you weld the keepers?

I have the long leg of the spring hog ringed onto the door frame when the keeper (I use a small chain link) is getting welded and while I weld the hinge mount. This holds the door at a little less then a 45degree angle which "loads" the springs once the door is swung inside and the door lock bars in the corner are welded in place. I use the small chain link because it is slightly soft material so I can grab it with pliers and bend it up or down so as to match the spring tension to each other for best door closing performance

Any perticular trap springs y'all prefer ? Seems the helper springs from duke #2 square jaws are the best I've found

Onieda victor 1 1/2 coil springs. Same springs on all my traps plenty of power and speed. I'm using these as they were what as I was instructed to use by Bruce himself
