Lobster Trap Making Video InfoHere are a collection of our trap making videos.
Sorry there isn't any sound on these clips.
All the equipment you can see are available from Here
Lobster Trap Making Video - Part 1

The wire mesh is wound off the roll and pulled through the straightner for a flat panel. The wire is then cut to size with a pair of pneumatic (air powered) wire cutters.

The panel is then put on end and the stubbs are cut off.

In this clip you can see the wire mesh panel being folded with our wire bender.

With the body bent we can now attach the the side panel and start bringing our trap together.
The tool used here is a pneumatic ProClinch clipping tool which pulls the wire together with marine grade alloy clips. These clips are specifically designed for fish traps as the are very strong and will not rust.

ProClinch Tool & Clips available to buy or Hire.

Same process as before but closer and a better angle.

Lobster Trap Making Video - Part 6

Now we attach the green oak runners, they're hard wearing and have minimal buoyancy. These offer protection to the bottom of the trap and the boat.
The runners are stapled to the trap using a pneumatic stapler (air powered) and the rubber strips are used for impact protection to protect the wire coating.

The entrance hole is cut out using a pair of heavy duty air snips and they cut through the wire we ease. The bottom of the entrance is then stepped in to give an angle for when the netted side entrance is attached.

The bridge is attached to give the trap strength and rigidity. The bridge is a wire mesh panel four squares wide folded four times into a square. The bridge is the attached to the trap with the ProClich clipping tool.

The side bridges act in the same way as the main bridge. These are attached to the trap with the ProClinch Clipping tool.

Lobster Trap Making Video - Part 15

A piece of twine is attached to each side of the parlour net and then pulled tight and knotted. This keeps the parlour net ramp tight and stops it from falling into the parlour and prevents the lobsters from climbing back out.

Lobster Trap Making Video - Part 16

The side eye entrance is made up of net and a 5.5" aluminum ring. It is attached in the same way as the parlour net with the semi automatic hogring plier.

Lobster Trap Making Video - Part 17

With the trap on its side knot a piece of twine to one of the aluminium rings and then attach it to the other and pull tight. This pulls the rings together and adds structure to both entrances and an angle to the ring so that the lobsters cannot get out.
Lobster Trap Making Video - Part 18

The door is a flat panel of mesh that we've fitted with a section of braid and then Proclinched ( watch your fingers! ). You can also attach it with hogrings or clips. Its up to you.



Lobster Trap Making Video - Part 19

The bungee door hook is made of a piece of mesh bent into a hook, that is then attached to a piece of 6.5mm shock cord. The shock cord is hogringed in to a loop through the mesh hook with a piece of twine on the end to pull on.

Attach it to the trap and pull tight to keep the door shut.
