A rare humane man trap

A rare chance to obtain a humane man trap – the last one of these that we had sold so quickly that we thought we’d use the auction to give everyone a chance.

This trap is in pretty good condition given it’s age but sadly both locks have rotted away over the years.



Target end date extended to 17:20 January 15th.

Will not post out side of the UK

How the Auction Works

Comments can also be used to ask public questions.

If a bid is received within 24 hours of the target end date, the end date will be extended to give a clear 24 hours between the last bid update on the listing and the end of the auction.
