Anybody have any tips to help my trailers last longer? My favorite brush jig is awesome in every way except the molded in trailer keep is so bulky it tears up the trailer almost immediately - even with BFEs I'm lucky to get a couple of bass out of it before the trailer is sliding down the hook

copper wire if you want to tie up a few prior to going.

just enough to compress the trailer. trailer hook with the trailer on it is another option and I think helps hooksets.

Thanks - I tried super glue, the keeper just splits the trailer.

Superglue usually works pretty good. I've also had really good success with those Z-man trailers. They're so flexible that they will last almost all day. Although if you're wanting to dip-n-dye then you can't use them because they'll melt.

2 ways to make it last longer: Don't use a trailer that has salt in it. 2) Screw lock
