The Budget Trap is cylindrical in shape.  The Johnson Trap is also cylindrical but with a wider top than bottom ring to increase the trap volume.  Four tape-loop hanging points are provided for stability.


The main body of the Johnson Trap is black nylon, which makes the trap less conspicuous, with a white lid to encourage upward flight.  The Budget Trap is available in either black or white nylon, with a white lid.  Each trap has a full length double-slider zip for easy photography, and removal or release of specimens.


The black PVC landing platform is attached to the bottom ring of the trap with cords and cord-locks, and the gap between the cage and platform can be quickly and easily adjusted.  Extending from the bottom ring of the Johnson is a short skirt which can be easily raised to change the bait without disturbing the top section of the trap.  If required, the landing platform can be removed, and the skirt closed completely with the integral drawstring and cord-lock, leaving a hanging study or observation cage. This skirt is not a feature of the Budget Trap. 


A removable clear colourless PVC rainguard is available.
