Design: Tomahawk

Tomahawk in collaboration with Neighborhood Cats, has designed a commercially-built folding drop trap made of galvanized wire mesh:

The DTKIT is the drop trap combined with a transfer carrier for $139, and the trap alone is sold as the DT1, for $99 (plus shipping).

Looks like the open dimensions are
36"Wx 36"D x14"H, and weight is only 14 pounds. It folds flat.

Also, note the dimensions of the drop trap DOOR opening (11w x 12h). This is relatively large. If you want to use your own traps to transfer into, ensure that the openings will fit together without too much of a gap (ie your trap is not narrower than the drop trap opening). With the larger opening, I would think that a Havahart trap door could slide inside - altho with a cat in the drop trap, that would be a bit hair-raising!

11/8/15 - I've been able to use this trap quite a bit, now. My local TNR group uses them as loaners.
They are kind of a nuisance to set up and take down, but if you're not doing a lot of trapping in different locations, they're great!
I also like them as a holding cage for cats trapped a few days before their appointment. I can set her up with a litter box, food and water, and a box to hide in, and she'll be safe and comfortable - and most importantly, securely transferable back into a trap for transport to the vet.
