The Arbor Trap is the first technology to mitigate the occurence of runaways by literally trapping any out-of-balance arbor. To learn more about runaways, and how the Arbor Trap has changed the playing field, visit our runaway mitigation page.
A full set of Arbor Traps offers a level of protection to its users unavailable with any other product. They can be retrofit onto standard rod arbor systems or used in conjunction with our patented Front-Loading Arbors.
For existing rod arbors, the Arbor Trap is secured to the channel above. The blades, the part of the system which is caught in the trap, are bolted directly to the top of the arbor.
The release lever is indicated in red.
