The Freedom Brand DP Clean Out Tool is excellent for cleaning up your dog proof coon traps and getting them back into top notch working order. During season and especially after the season is over DP traps can become very hard to clean up, particularly after they've sat around for awhile without being used. They often have caked in bait in the cylinder that is difficult to remove and hardened mud, etc. in and around the spring and trigger system area on the exterior of the trap. Cleaning the interior and exterior of DP traps to get them ready to be used again can be quite a chore.
