Many thanks for the trap plans. very clear and easily understood, I have been after plans like this for ages, just ordered some springs from John Bryan at fourteenacre Ltd, he has them made for the job for a couple of quid. look out maggie.

I've never had any problems with the ones I use and sell.

 

As you mention having frequent issues with the springs it's worth pointing out that they have to be fitted the right way. They need to be already under tension when the door is closed and fitted so that as the door is set open, it winds the coil up more.

 

I'm not saying that you are fitting yours incorrectly, but thought it was worth a mention. thumbs.gif
