Trailer Make & Trailer Model Year: This information is used to determine the correct mounting brackets and hardware needed for installing your AutoTrap™ correctly.
Trap Style: Specifying your trap style (Rack & Pinion or Strap-Trap) is important to help Shur-Co's customer service determine the correct motor for your trailer. An incorrect motor amy damage your strap style or Rollertrap™* system.
Front Hopper & Back Hopper Directions: DD refers to the Direct Drive rotation that the crankshaft must be turned to OPEN the hopper. If your hopper has a 2-speed gear box, look at the direction of rotation of the shaft & u-joint to determine this direction as the ProTrap® is pre-programmed and wired according to this information.
Remote Option: The patented SMART3™ is our standard 5-channel remote that utilizes the "Press-n-Hold" and "Express Mode" operational features and 1-way communication. The patented SMART2™ is our latest remote system that utilizes 2-way communication to display the status of the ProTrap® channel you are controlling. It also provides additional motor protection built into the controls and has "Express Mode" capability. For more information on the SMART3™ CLICK HERE and for the SMART2™ CLICK HERE.
Electric Tarp Currently Installed: This question is only used to help Shur-Co® get you all the correct parts and wiring for the AutoTrap™ installation. Checking yes for this question is not an order for an electric tarp.
NOTE: Please call Shur-Co® at 1-800-474-8756 to order triple and quad hopper trailers, lead/pup trailer combos or AutoTrap™/4500HD combos.

AutoTrap™ combines the best elements of Shur-Co® SMARTrailer™ design! You get a compact, high-clearance system at an affordable price, with patented SMARTwire™ connections and built-in compatability with our SMART2™ or SMART3™ remote.
The thru-bore motor design of the AutoTrap™ has performance characteristics comparable to our ProTrap®system, but in a more compact size and weight – nearly 40% lighter! This design also allows for easy one-bolt conversion to manual operation, if necessary. The protective polymer sleeve acts as a corrosion barrier between drive shaft and motor.
This system has a one-size-fits all design, to interface with 1-inch, 7/8-inch or 3/4-inch crank shafts. Wireless operation via pre-programmed SMART2™ or SMART3™ remote is standard while push-button controls at each opener are also included.
Available in 1-hopper, 2-hopper, 3-hopper and 4-hopper stand-alone configurations or in combination with 4500 Series HD electric tarps, AutoTrap™ is the industry’s premium choice in electric hopper openers.
