Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) July 13, 2009
InventHelp®, America's leading inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Bath, Pa., has designed a modified crab trap that would make it easier to catch and retrieve a crab. This invention is patented and a prototype is available.
"The Venus Crab Trap" would help a user to catch and retrieve a crab easily and could make the crabbing experience more enjoyable. The invention would eliminate the need to touch a crab directly, and would feature a compact, lightweight design that would be easy to operate. The Venus Crab Trap would be ideal for anyone, from children to the experienced crabber.
The modified crab trap would include a spring-loaded design and could be operated by a fishing rod. Located at the bottom of the trap would be four springs, and the trap includes a wire stopper, which holds the device open when in water. To use, the individual would place the bait in the trap and could use a fishing rod to lower it into the water. When the trap hits the bottom, the sides would automatically open and lay flat. The user would then pull the trap up with the fishing rod, and as the trap is raised, the sides close, trapping the crab. According to the inventor, a hand line could also be used to raise and lower the trap.
InventHelp® is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor.
