Only a BIG snake. it doesn't close down far enough for anything we have around here. You would have to use it on a BIG fish too.

It very well may. I guarantee if it snapped on my head you could probably pull me around anywhere you wanted.

 It is not a " Marbles "

  The writing on it is as goes ... Norlund's
                                           Williamsport  PA
                                                    USA


  That is better then China  ;D :D :D

  It has a black handle holder and springs , the claw looks to be unpainted steel .. rust patuna  ;)
 

 
 This one also could put some damage to a basketball  ;)

Don't lose your balance when setting them jaws, or it might jump up and grab something. :D  That's got teeth on the jaws don't it? I've seen a couple over the years at the camps. I don't think my grandfather ever trapped bears, it was rifle hunting. I saw one bear trap one time that would take quite man to set.  ;D

I can't set that trap by myself without using c clamps. I was just standing on it trying to get that pice of wood out of it. Nope.

I keep planning on heating up the spring and relaxing it that would make it useless but Ill never usit on anything exept as wall art.
