I’ve used mini zip ties both last year and this year and they seem to work fine if you put a few of them.
Can't believe that I didn't think of that earlier. :lol: What's the best way to attach the mousetraps to the chassis? I tried screws but I ended up splitting the mousetrap wood so I've been using superglue but then I can't swap them out.
I've got two plastic nuts and bolts for each trap, and I have drilled holes for them in my traps and car. It works fine for me, and I can change both traps in 3 minutes. I use 2 tiny zip ties to attach my arm, and I have spares in case something happens or I need to change traps at a competition. I've got one trap that self-destructed on a practice run, so... It pulled one of the staples out of the base while it was set...
