If you ask what’s new in the crab trap industry, you will definitely be told PRE-CUT wire!


PRE-CUT wire may not be new to you. Any fisherman or trap builder can measure and cut roll wire, and maybe some of you have already purchased PRE-CUT wire that was cut by your wire supplier.  However, Southern Wire PRE-CUT wire is revolutionary in the way that it is cut, galvanized, and PVC coated at the factory.  There is no trimming necessary and no picky edges that will cut or scratch your hands.  This PRE-CUT wire also has double-strengthened borders.

The PRE-CUT wire that is manufactured and distributed solely by Southern Wire Co. is simply amazing, or should we say, a dream-come-true for the commercial crab fisherman


Affordable Pre-Cut Crab Traps

The only reason we can supply pre-cut crab trap wire at a very affordable price is simply because we manufacture this product overseas and distribute it on our own.  We experience a great volume of phone calls and emails inquiring about shipping and distributing our pre-cut wire.  If you would like information about shipping or distributing Southern Wire PRE-CUT wire, please click on the “How to Order” or “Contact Us” link at the top of this page.
