Trap Technologies

Solenoid Release System All our Competition approved traps have a solenoid release system as standard, for instantaneous firing on call.

Knife Edge System

The ‘Knife Edge’ system is an industry leading innovation that was born from Promatic. It ensures efficient clay feed no matter the weather, from the -30 degree winter in Moscow, Russia to the deep heat summers of Texas USA.

Spring Action locating pin

Targets can be changed in a matter of seconds due to the neat spring action location pin. This allows the user to simply pull out the pin without the use of a spanner, and altering the machine to the setting. It can be found on the Harrier, Eagle and Osprey models.

Turnbuckles and Turning Wheels

Some traps are equipped with turnbuckles for horizontal and vertical tilt, so that you can alter them quickly and manually, so there’s not need to reach for the tool box.

Our International Skeet machines now come ready with turning wheels to alter angle, tilt and spring tension, all of which can be done quickly without the use of a spanner.

Horizontal and elevation angle gauge

On our Promatic Olympic Trap machines are fitted with a horizontal and elevation angle gauge, to guarantee precise angles specified by ISSF for this discipline. The Olmypic Trap is fully compliant with all ISSF regulations.

Solenoid release

Promatic use solenoid release mechanisms on many of our competition standard machines. These mechanisms are used on machines where an instantaneous release of the target is required e.g. on disciplines such as Olympic Trap, Double Trap, Skeet, DTL and ABT.

The solenoid release mechanism consists of a pin fitted to the throwing arm, a trigger assembly which pivots on a bar mounted on a bracket and a solenoid to move the trigger out of the way to allow the pin on the arm to move past it when the trap is fired.
