A simple wire snare support

I originally posted this on Frugals.

This is an easy way to hang a snare almost anywhere.

Simple tools Gregerson coyote snare.
Needle nose pliers
and a piece of wire.

Use the pliers to bend the end of the wire as shown.

Insert the snare cable in the notch and use the pliers to squeeze it tight.
Don't squeeze tight enough to crush the cable, you just want a good friction fit. When caught the animal will pull it out easily while struggling.

Here is the finished product hung on my garage door. The full weight of the snare is held by the notch.
You can wire this snare anywhere now.
If you use stiff enough wire you can even poke it in the ground and hold a snare where there is nothing to hang it from.

Still clinging to my God and my guns
