Product Description

The 4" x 4" x 16" Professional Series Single Trap Door Trap with Sliding Rear Release Door is made out of 1/2" x 1/2" 16 gauge galvanized steel mesh. These Traps Are Identical to Our Professional Series Traps with Single Door but these traps have an included Rear Release Door. This door lets the user easily release the animal into a safe place without having to bother with opening the front trap door. You can simply open the safety hasp on the rear release door, swing down the hasp door lock and take the rear door straight up or even off with an easy pull upward. These traps are a great choice for that hard to capture Flying Squirrel, or similar sized animal because of their compact size and super tight gaps and mesh! The Professional Single Trap Door Trap with Sliding Rear Release Door is the perfect trap for the person who is going to use this trap over and over again for years for that Hard to get that Flying Squirrel or similar sized animal, and not even have to treat this trap with kit gloves to still have it work perfect every time! These traps were designed by me at Tomahawk Live Trap years ago with the person who traps for a living in mind. They work exactly like the standard traps but will be able to handle much more abuse without flinching!

Professional Live Traps are made just like the Standard Live Traps but they include tighter mesh so the animal can't reach out of the trap once its caught and bring everything it can inside of the trap with it. These traps also utilize Extra Reinforcing U-Bars or rods welded around the trap and door.

Live Traps are a great alternative to other types of body hold or leg hold traps. What makes a live trap unique, is that you can actually see the animal you have in your trap before there is a chance of hurting its leg or even killing it if its the wrong type or too small or even somebody's family pet. But, To keep your trap up to its name, "Live", you must check it at least every day and more if in a sunny area. Northern Industries Professional Live Traps are set by simply pushing in on the outer safety door, now with the safety door in, pull up on the complete two part V door, now motion the trigger loop forward, hooking the trigger around the brass roller bearing and angling the treadle up. Your trap is now set and ready to put the desired bait under the treadle and behind it.

The Northern Industries traps are designed by one of the former owners of Tomahawk Live Trap. I have taken all the best aspects of the traps from my former company that everyone loves and used them on these new traps; we used the brass roller bearing on the trigger rest, the trigger, the trigger rod, the strength rods and u-bars being welded in the same spots, the same springs on the same door, right down to the same 1940s spot welders to weld everything together, totally reconditioned to look and work like new, we even use the same clips to clip everything together. Unlike most of my competitors, I use an American wire mesh company and a an American wire rod company.nd in its old factory when it moved away from Tomahawk! You see I believe in trying to preserve and use the knowledge my father Greg Smith Jr. handed down to me to make my products the same way he did, but am always improving my products with every trapper I talk too.

Now lets talk about the differences in my new traps and the traps I used to Manufacture.

My New Traps are made with galvanized after the weld steel mesh that's Made in America for starters. We utilize a reinforced mesh treadle, or trip pan, as some call it. This treadle is almost invisible as it blends right into the surrounding trap mesh, making it less likely for the animal to step over it. This see through treadle also makes it possible to put your bait directly under it so the animal can see and smell your bait on the way into the trap. The under treadle placement of the bait also makes it possible for the animal to reach through the mesh treadle, tripping off the trap and catching your animal!

The Most Important Difference is Northern Industries Traps are 20% Less!!!
