This product is very similar to the logwood chips that were popular years ago. RENNO's All Natural, Organic Trap Dye is derived from a certain species of plant native to the mountains of PA. Unlike other powder dyes which are next to worthless as far as rust proofing is concerned, this dye will coat traps with a finish that is nearly rust proof and odorless with the ability to weather several weeks of trapping without the standard additional waxing process. The beauty of this all is the fact that this is a completely natural, organic product with no foreign odors.

One bag of dye in 10-12 gallons of water will treat 25-30 #3 size or 40-50 #1-3/4 size traps that are moderately clean.

Instructions: Heat water with dye and traps immersed to a light boil and simmer/boil for two hours. Traps can now be waxed if desired. With excessively dirty or rusty traps, bring to a rolling boil for an hour or longer, then add another bag of RENNO's Trap Dye and simmer for 30 minutes and let soak for 3-4 days.

Traps treated as per above instructions will have a medium dark finish that is nearly rust proof and odorless and will weather 3-4 weeks of trapping without waxing. Note: New traps should be washed in hot, soapy water to clean them of mfg. oil before dyeing, but do not need to be rusted.

Stop Rust!  Kill all foreign odor! Fool the most paranoid canine!

This product is native to the USA.

Kaatz Bros. Lures proudly introduces this new cold dip. Directions: Mix 3 parts unleaded gas with one part KBL Quick Dye to give traps or snares a rust resistant, odorless finish.

Traps/snares should be degreased and allowed to rust slightly before dipping with KBL Quick Dye. Traps should be dipped (for 20-30 seconds) and hung to dry in warm weather (65 degrees or warmer). KBL Quick Dye will coat best during hot days. One quart will dye about 2 dozen small traps (#1 longsprings, #110 body grips) or 1 dozen larger traps (MB-750, #330 body grips).
