This trap works great...I use it just south of San Francisco to fish off a pier for red...rock and dungeoness crabs...the first day out we caught crab every time it went in the water..with the addition of four feet(about 5 pounds) of 2 inch link chain that I zip tied to the inside of the bottom was heavy enough to stay put in the heavy currents in the Pacific. Glow in the dark works really well and the crabs just don't want to stay out. The only complaint I have about this trap is the wire grid is a little large..smaller rock crabs that would be keepers fall out while hauling the trap up...otherwise I would've given it five stars especially considering that it folds completely flat for transporting and storage..

This is the sole reason I gave it a three star. The product is solid and well built and I took my chances with other review that read "not for blue crab" but since manufacture said nothing of this, I bought it anyway. Took my chances.and lost out. I am modifying the cage with zip ties and chicken wire to make it blue crab ready. Doors need to be weighed down for better closing.

I bought this to go crabbing in the SF Bay instead of the hoop nets so that I can pull it up leisurely since I have a bad shoulder (you have to pull hoops nets up fast or the crabs get out). The trap didn't fit together 100% but it was close enough (hard to explain but the "joints" didn't all fit perfectly). Here are the problems I ran across:

On the first couple pulls, the side door was flopping in the breeze and the bait cage was mangled. This was the work of a hungry sea lion I presume. So I put several zip ties to keep it shut but it still ripped the door open. I ended up having to use pliers to clamp down the hooks that hold the door closed. The end result is the doors are permanently closed (can't open them to take the crabs out).

Once the side door issue was taken care of, the top bait door became a problem. Even with using the hook that was included and two medium sized zip ties keeping it shut, the door was still busted open and the bait stolen. I had to heavily reinforce the bait door also.

The last issue I have is that the grid is a little too large. It's possible for keeper size crabs to fall through. I had this happen after pulling the cage up and seeing the crab slip through the cage (through the square holes, not the round ones). I'm thinking I have to put zip ties diagonally to make the openings smaller.

Seals are notorious in the bay area but if you're in other areas, this might not be an issue. You'll have to buy rope to attach to the trap. Good hunting.

Update 8/2013: I've used this trap many times and it does work very well, especially if you leave it in the water for a while (the longer the better).

This collapsible Danielson Pacific Crab Trap is made of coated heavy gage wire and the sides panels pull up and latch with loops of wire to the top and bottom for assembly from the folded closed trap. The top, sides and bottom are quality made to last. My first Danielson trap did not come with a bait cage, so I ordered this Pacific and am really pleased with it. I applied some hog rings where necessary, to assure the rings won't get lost, if the hemp cord I used to replace the very soft cord that came with the rot away rings. It has two escape rings for small crabs with one being designed for Crab removal. This coated trap will last many years and provide many crabs for the pot.

I am a recreational crabber and will only have a few traps and this one will last. For about $24.99 it is a good crab trap bargain delivered by Amazon Prime for free. Some of the offerings are more than I would ever pay for a crab trap. This trap measures 24-inches L x 24-inches W x 13-inches H and it folds flat for transport and storage, if you want to disassemble it down to shipping size. It has four glow entrance doors, which are 9.5" x 4.5", that close after the crab enters. This offering comes with a glow bait basket that clips to the top or bottom.

Since purchasing this trap and one of the other Danielson Crab trap, I feel the Pacific is the better deal, basically the same trap with a glow bait cage and the top has a hinged opening for removal and baiting, also the doors are Glow coated also. Best deal and a better looking trap. You may want to compare and make up you own mind on this.

Cage itself is well made. The wires are heavy and coated. Set up was easy but we had a little bit of difficulty flattening them at the end of the day. The grids are just about right for California dungeness crabs but I can tell you that I'd be happier if they were a quarter of an inch smaller. Marginally legal size dungeness crabs would fall through the grid holes if they tried hard enough! Side doors are secured using elastic bands, which worked fine for us. Nothing fancy.

Where this product definitely lacks quality is the bait cage. It's made of thinner steel rods coated with simple white paint (or possibly a glow in the dark type of paint). The bottom door to the bait cage easily got opened by small crabs that could walk through the cage easily, making this cage very ineffective. After modifying the bottom door to hold tighter as well as reinforcing it using a pair of twisty ties, we managed to catch multiple crabs the second round, although it came at a price: the bait cage was bent badly. I think thicker steel would have worked better here.

Overall a good purchase for dungeness crabs.
