Soup Can Coonin’   (402) 875-1406

We are a family owned private business located in the heartland of America. All of our traps are laser cut steel products made in the USA from start to finish with precision and pride. They are designed for easy use, versatility, efficiency, safety, and most of all to catch a lot of fur!

This trap can be dropped right on the ground or dug into a 3″ hole.  It can be pushed into the sand, mud, or snow right up to the level of the faceplate vertically or horizontally.  It can also be suspended from a tree, fence, bridge, old house, and log jams.  Virtually any structure.  Suspending the trap keeps it mouse free and can reduce the catch of non target animals by adjusting the elevation of the trap.  This new trap design allows you  to make sets that no other traps on the market could even dream of doing.   Basically anywhere a coon can travel you can set this trap!

The can is easy to remove and can be taken off in seconds, hundreds of times.   The can protects your trap and its internal components from mud, muck, frost, ice and snow.  The trap is designed to catch the inside lip of the can left from using a regular can opener.  The type of can used is the most common size can used today. To remove the can simply squeeze the top of the can to oblong it allowing the clip to pass by the inside lip of the can.  This allows you to clean out your trap if needed in the field.

One of my personal favorite things about the trap is that you can have it baited and ready to go before you leave the driveway. It is light, fast setting and the applications are endless for sets.  you can put 3 dozen in a pack basket baited and they weigh 30lbs or less.  The trap can be set by hand or by means of a 5/32 allen wrench.  With the can on or off!  No special tools needed!!!

The trap is made from 12 gauge flat iron and 16 gauge pipe, a strong torsion spring and a hardened steel wire hair trigger mechanism.  The face of the trap has a 1/4″ hole on one side for fixing the trap to objects by means of wire, staple, screw, or nail.  It comes equipped with a 1 foot 2/0 double loop trap chain and heavy swivel.

The original trap design was to be able to push the trap into the mud, sand and muck along cricks and streams.  Swipe the face of the trap with some mud and it looked just like a crawdad hole on the side of the bank.  All other applications and changes came from wants and needs that people in our trade had requested over years of prototyping.
