The XL version of the HAGz Spring Clip works just like the regular, except it is designed for 220's and 330's.

Designed to work by itself on 1/2" rods or in conjunction with the HAGz Bracket (sold separate) for extreme versatility. Small and non-invasive, the HAGz Spring Clip XL is inserted through the spring coils where it remains always attached, never forget it, and doesn't interfere with the spring eye.

Use it in conjunction with the HAGz Bracket (sold separate) to stabilize a Body Grip Trap virtually anywhere.

Due to the size of larger traps, it is recommended to place a cross stick or additional rod between the jaws to prevent any spinning.
