Pathfinder DF-4 Deadfall Trap

The Pathfinder DF-4 stands for Deadfall Figure - 4. It mimics the traditional figure four trap trigger system carved out with sticks. Yet it is in a one piece design, and it collapses down for easy storage. The PDF-4 deadfall trap can easily be set with one hand holding the trap trigger, and the other holding up the deadfall. The traditional carved figure four trap method works very well and is time tested, but can be time consuming and difficult to set.

The PDF-4 is made with a combination of 6000 series aluminum, and the pivot points are put together with air craft type rivets. The traps are also anodized with a type III hardened finished. A lot of effort was made to keep these traps light, compact, and durable.

The single weighs 3.4 oz. and is 13 1/2" tall by 1/2"X5/8" when collapsed.

The traps have been extensively tested with an accuracy average ranging around 20% per trap. Meaning with every five well placed traps we would have one to two captures a day, of course we do not guarantee these figures as many factors come into play.

The Pros of the PDF-4 trap are light weight, packable, stealth, efficient, fast setting, humane due to a quick kill mechanics, or it can be used for live capture with cage type deadfalls. The PDF-4 when in use can be working for you while you engage in other activities. The PDF-4 is light weight and takes up very little room in your pack. These traps are perfect to carry for emergency food procurement, or can be used for basic trapping if laws allow.

The PDF-4 is not a gimmick, it is a real survival tool. Trapping is not the most popular subject these days, however it is a viable way to produce protein. In the event an alternative way is needed to provide food the PDF-4 is a real option.

Death on A Stick

The deadfall trap is easy to carry, easy to set up and is wickedly sensitive. If you don't have time to find and then make deadfall sticks, this is the answer you have been looking for.

Great Trap

Nice little set up, great value

Simple design

Although I have yet to catch anything, I think it is my fault so far. This is a clean and simple design that takes the work out of fashioning a figure-4 trap.

D4 trap

Haven't used it yet but seems to be well constructed.By the time you fabricate one in the field using sticks,with these you could be enjoying a meal of squirrel or fish.Yes these can be set up a fishing spring pole!I intend on getting the 5 pack.
