This unique MONSTER Bear Trap is a proud acquisition from 1960's Alaska wilderness era. It is truly magnificent! HEAVY DUTY, fully functional, custom-made and guaranteed to hold a Kodiak if you are so inclined... 8-/...yikes!
My best guess is that you'd appreciate it more as a rustic wall display piece, though. I'm told most folks open old traps of this size and have them welded into position. (Definitely NOT the task for a Novice.)
It measures 35" long, 13" wide, and 8" tall. There are 7 teeth and the pan is 3 3/4" wide. The massive chain is 21" long. This bad boy weighs 20 lbs 2 oz!!
No cracks or compromise in the steel construction... just a neat rusty patina.
