Does anyone know where I can get replacement parts for my Timms traps? we are under attack from the forest behind us which is being logged and they are going for the lemons!! Unfortunatly my traps which have been outside for some time are rusted especially the bar which goes across to hold the pull string. Serches on the net have come up blank so far.:confused:

I suspect, being a lightweight and relatively cheap trap, that you might just have to buy the whole thing. - Advice from the contract trapper, now he's reappeared in the house, is that you can get bits, but you'll have to get hold of whomever makes them. I think Connovation sells them, so they may be a place to start?

By the way, hopefully nobody here does this, but all the people we've met with Timms set them off for re-baiting by kicking them, or pulling the bait bar forward with a stick. Over time that will cause them to break down and fail. Always let them off by holding the string, so they don't go BANG with nothing in them.

You could always try the inventor.. he lives at the bottom of my hill. If you'd like the details PM me and I'll get his phone number. His name, of course, is Tim... !!

Thanks Ruth, had a look at Connovation, they only had new full units (no parts), I prefer to fix/repair things as much as I can and at $50 + p&p each, the new ones are not cheap!
