There always seems to be a bit of confusion about exactly how SNAP triggers work. Fair enough, half of the mechanism is hidden inside the plunger tube, and I can't see anyone shelling out for a transparent SNAP anytime soon. There was a request for diagrams of a SNAP trigger over at the HQ, so I made these up.

Here's the plunger at rest:

On the other hand, the guy who posted before me used the word 'fuck' a lot so he probably knows what he's talking about.

Very nicely done! This will hopefully help the newer members take the leap into SNAPs then homemades. It also might help if you made a diagram of Rork's version.

SNAPs aren't homemades?

I kid, I kid.

I'll see about that. Though really, the differences are the improvements rork built into the plunger head. Mechanically, it's the same concept.
