Standard Floor Loom Traps
Schacht’s Standard Floor Loom Trap adds convenient storage to your Standard Floor Loom. The sturdy nylon sleeve can hold your shuttles and tools—even sharp scissors—right at the front of your loom. Clamp the trap to the front legs of your loom when you’re ready to weave, and remove it for warping.
The trap is available in cherry or maple, to match your loom (for both styles, cross rods inside the sleeve are made of maple for added strength).
It comes in two sizes to fit all 36″ and 45″ Standard Floor Looms.
Assembly is simple. You’ll just need a #2 Phillips screwdriver and a helper or a small table to support the cloth sleeve.
Madelyn van der Hoogt's Review
I’ve had a wish for a very long time. Most of the weaving I do is with two (or more) shuttles. The very first time I used a Wolf Trap on my Baby Wolf, I loved it. Placing each shuttle on the bench and then picking it back up for every pick (often knocking it off the bench and having to pick it up off the floor) greatly interrupted the rhythm (and joy) of weaving. I loved my Schacht Standard Floor Loom, but I’d always choose a Baby Wolf for any two-shuttle weave if I could.
My long-held wish has just been answered—a dream come true! The Trap has come to the Schacht Standard. My shuttles now sit comfortably in front of me, quick to pick up and put down, and I can keep my small scissors and extra bobbins there. The Trap is simple to assemble and can be easily removed for warping.
I’m trying to decide on a name for my new Trap. Bear Trap: since it’s bigger than a Wolf Trap? I’ve thought of Miracle Trap, too, because it’s like a miracle to me to have it (and because Barry Schacht also makes Mirrycle bicycle bells and mirrors). Maybe you have a better idea. Whatever you call it, you will love it!
The Trap on Madelyn's loom can hold a lot of gear!
