Andy Stoe’s Speed Dip has been formulated to put a protective film on any steel trap. This protective film puts a hard protective coat on the trap to keep it from rusting. Depending on humidity the dip will dry in 2 – 3 days. It is suggested that you do this on days with low humidity and dip the traps 1-2 months in advance if you are using them for landy trapping. This will give the gas odor a chance to disapate before making your trapping sets. For rubber jawed traps it is recommended that you remove the rubber pads before dipping as it softens rubber.
I have used this before to dip water traps. Don’t be worried about using gas with it. Like it says in the instuctions, the gas smell goes away and I can attest to the fact this is true. I used the white gas you get for lantern fuel.
How to use Andy Stoe’s Speed Dip to dip traps
Mix 1 quart of Speed Dip to 1 gallon of Coleman fuel or mineral spirits. Miix the solution in a bucket. Dip your traps a into the solution, make sure they are evenly coated, remove the traps, and hang to dry.
