Trailer Make & Trailer Model Year: This information is used to determine the correct mounting brackets and hardware needed for installing your ProTrap® correctly.
Trap Style: The more common Rack & Pinion style of trap will call for our standard "PT250" motor with higher torque, while the Strap-Trap (sometimes called a Rollertrap™*) style will call for our lower torque "PT150" motor. It is important to note that the PT250 motor should not be used in place of the PT150 on those applications as it could damage your strap style or Rollertrap™ system because of the higher torque.
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 patent-pending 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 ProTrap® 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 ProTrap®/4500HD combos.

Get the one-two punch in trailer automation! Pair your 4500 Series HD electric tarp with the ProTrap® electric hopper door opener. ProTrap® slides the hopper doors open and closed while you stay back, out of the dust.
Shur-Co’s ProTrap® has all-metal gears and housing that are designed to handle hard stops, with a high-efficiency planetary gear reduction and circuit breaker at the battery to protect the motor. No need for unreliable limit switches that are easily damaged by field conditions. Our patented sealed SMARTwire™ helps prevent corrosion of connectors and dramatically reduces install time. We also provide integrated motor protection from road debris with our built-in mudflap.
Actual torque varies based on wire size, length and battery voltage; motors are sized to protect your trailer components. The 150 low-torque motor is standard for trailers with strap-style traps; the 250 motor is standard on rack-and-pinion traps.
Choose from both our wireless options, the patented SMART3™ and the patented SMART2™ remote upgrade. Run the ProTrap®, plus four more 12-volt Shur-Co® accessories, with our five-channel SMART3™. It deactivates when the flip-style cover is closed or after three minutes of inactivity.
Want more power and options then upgrade to the SMART2™ remote. The SMART2™ is the only state-of-the-art remote that offers two-way communication in an easy-to-read digital display with the feedback you need to run smarter and more efficiently . Lets you run up to 100 different devices from more than 100 feet away!
