Rhodeside, Inc.


Voice Activated Release System

Special - $169.95

  1. THINK SAFETY---Always work on the trap with the trap disconnected from the 12v battery, turned off, and the throwing arm in the "at rest" position. Standing behind the trap is best.
  2. Cut the "pull" cord wire from the trap about 24" from the switch.
  3. Using a twist lock connector, connect the female end to the wire going to the trap.
  4. Connect the male end to the wire from the VARS unit. Connect another male twist lock plug to the 24" switch wire. This will allow you to use the VARS or the original release system.
  5. Remove the battery compartment cover and insert the 9v battery. Make sure you connect the battery to the clip properly or damage to the circuit board will result. Replace cover.
  6. Insert the VARS twist lock male plug into the female twist lock receptacle on the wire going to the trap.
  7. Turn the switch on the trap to the "ON" position. Trap will cock.
  8. Turn the black knob on the front of the VARS control box clockwise. You will hear a "click". This means VARS is "ON". STAND BEHIND THE TRAP.
  9. Turn the knob all the way clockwise. This will put the system at maximum sensitivity. Call "PULL" to release a target. Now turn the knob counter clockwise to reduce the sensitivity. You will reach a point where VARS will stop operating. For your voice you now need to turn the knob a little clockwise to get the trap to release a target. The knob (switch) should be about in the middle of it's travel. You should leave it in this position and throw targets. If you have a lot of background noise you might have to reduce sensitivity. If you can't get a target, turn the knob towards maximum. Be careful using VARS at the maximum setting, targets will easily be launched. ALWAYS STAND BEHIND THE TRAP.
  10. Turn black knob (switch) to the off position when finished shooting to prolong battery life.
