The stop on a snare prevents the noose from fully closing........and the DEFRA code of practice deems the snare as a Holding device rather that a Killing device........make of that what you will. If the stop prevented the noose from opening it would be deemed a self-locking snare which IS illegal. Please don't consider setting snares for foxes unless you are sure you know what you are doing (not suggesting that you don't) and that you have the means of a humane dispatch method.
