Here's what part of my snares look like. The lock is a 3/32 camlock and the "s" hook is what's known as a BAD...break away device......they are diesingned so a coyote can't usually pull them open but a deer usually can.

Hang your snares in the one o'clock or 2 o'clock position to keep the wind from setting them off.

If you're not sure how to make the washer type locks, I'm not sure how well they are going to work for you .

You need to find someone in your area to help you out.

The locks have to close and get tighter and tighter, never letting off, to be effective. If they're not, your coyote is going to get away.

By the way, the plastic tubing used to hold your snares to the support wire is called a whammy.

If you buy some camlocks, they are reuseable...but the snare cable will be ruined after your first catch.
