The ZIP Possum Trap System takes a tried and true possum trap, the PCR No. 1 Leg-hold, and presents it in a highly effective raised set. Each component of the system has been carefully designed and extensively tested to maximise the effectiveness and efficiency of trapping operations, while reducing potential risks to non-target species.

Each unit comes with a 2-year warranty, and consists of:

  • Glass fibre-reinforced plastic platform

  • High grade steel, zinc-coated PCR No. 1 Leg-hold Trap

  • Adjustable galvanised steel chain with bungee to improve animal welfare and prevent escapes

  • White corflute visual lure to attract possums to the trap

  • Galvanised nail (75mm x 3.15mm)

  • All TEK screws required to attach platform to tree, attach chain to platform, and attach optional wooden ramp to platform

Two TEK driver bits and a User Guide will be included along with every 50 units purchased.
