This trap weighs only 9 pounds, and the flotation foam is located inside the trap to make it more durable and resilient. The trap has a 7 inch floating platform that the muskrat will comfortably rest on, and folds away for easy storage. From the platform the muskrat will smell the bait inside the trap and enter the one-way door. Once the muskrat enters the trap there is no way for it to get back out.
By blocking the plunge hole to the lower compartment the muskrats will remain alive in the upper compartment. However, allowing the captured muskrats to travel down the plunge hole the trap becomes a lethal device.
When trapping in a pond or lake tie the trap to a tree or something secure on shore. Release the spring that holds up the floating platform during shipping and storage. Bait the upper compartment in the rear corner opposite the passive door. For live capture only bait the top compartment and wire the second door, the one inside the trap (plunge hole), closed. For lethal capture simply leave the second door alone and captured muskrats will dive into the bottom chamber and expire.
