I just finished my my first snap, and it works pretty good. There is one problem though. Every couple of shots the trigger gets dislocated out of the clothespin.

any suggestions on fixing this?

I usually use a machine screw bolted to the trigger to act as a stop. I'm pretty sure I used something like that on the SNAP-9. Barring that, you can use most anything behind the trigger to limit its motion...I think I've duct taped a chunk of PVC to the handle behind the trigger in a pinch.

 

The more elegant solution is to make a clothespin cover out of another piece of PVC and slide that over the clothespin, which will limit its range of motion. I did that on the SNAP-1mk2, but it was ultimately more work than it was worth. They're just SNAPs, after all, and quick and dirty is the order of the day.

 

EDIT: Yeah, like this. Look at the trigger and you can see the bolt.

Thanks for the info. How did I not think of this?!

You can also just cut the wood handle with a protrusion to stop the trigger.
