Std. Live Traps with Release Door

Live Traps

The Live traps with release doors are great to have, you can simply unlatch the safety clasp and raise the sliding rear door up to release your animal into a cage or a safe animal reseve or similar area. These release door traps have reinforcing rods on the door itself and surrounding the rear of the trap where the slides are welded in place on the trap.

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 it's leg or even killing it if it's the wrong type or too small or even somebody's family pet. But, To keep your trap up to its name, "Live" trap, you must check it at least every day and more if in a sunny area. Northern Industries 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. Your trap is now set and ready to put the desired bait under the treadle and behind it.

The Northern Industries trap is 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 an American wire rod company. 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!

On the larger style traps we utilize a mesh handle guard also, we believe that this instead of a sheet metal handle guard intimidates the animal less making it more likely for the animal to walk into the trap.

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