About Us

''AutoClayTrap'' was founded in 1989 to meet the demand of modern automatic clay pigeon throwing machines at reasonable prices. In recent years both shooting clubs and individual shooters have been looking to replace their outdated manual traps with the new technology of automatic traps to ensure an all round better shooting experience. Modern engineering techniques and in-depth testing of trap dynamics and target's behaviour have helped produce a practical and reliable, easy to use automatic clay target machine that is affordable to clubs and individual enthusiasts.

Operation of AutoClayTrap products is simple and user-friendly. Normally over centre release on all traps is by push button and command cable, while radio and solenoid release can be supplied on request. Performance of clay firing is repeatedly precise and a fast re-cocking time allows following pairs with no trouble. The traps are easily portable and power is supplied by a 75 amp/hr min battery.AutoClayTrap manufactures clay pigeon traps and spare parts to order; this manufacture process means all machines can be made specific to customer requirements. Further to this AutoClayTrap will also modify any existing product to customer requirements where possible. Most types of used,second hand automatic and manual clay traps (Bowman, Promatic, LaPorte, Farey) can be upgraded with us by part-exchange.

AutoClayTrap Testimonial

''...Just to confirm we have had the trap back. We have loaded it with clays and I have to say, you have done a fantastic job with it. Thank you for the work you have done...'' C. Dixon, Shropshire

"...I am delighted with the clay trap I bought from AutoClayTrap. When I needed to get it repaired it was very helpful to know that you would both collect and return the trap. I am also pleased with the improvements which AutoClayTrap have developed since I bought the trap. I have had good service from it. Because of their design I was also pleased to get the trap updated with these new improvements to my old trap.
I am pleased to recommend AutoClayTrap company to people and I am sure they will be delighted with both the product and the service ..." Bill Wiggin,MP
