Another quick mod to my Ghostbuster trap

I swapped out the on/off button on both my Rubies and Spirit traps. It was nice to get rid of the “try me” mode on the Rubies trap, and now it’s so much easier to switch the trap on/off with one hand while holding the handle.

This mod is super easy. You just need to un-solder the existing wires and solder them to the new switch. The Rubies trap with the remote pedal actually has four wires going to the stock switch (two extra used for the “demo” mode), so you’ll only need to re-solder the green and yellow wires to the new switch.

The nice thing about these switches is they fit in the current switch spot without cutting off the stock mounts. You do need to enlarge the stock switch slot a bit, but not much. I simply used a flat head screwdriver and twisted a slightly larger hole.

The last image shows the connections for the Rubies Trap (w/pedal), the Spirit trap will only have a black and grey wire connected to the switch.
