New To Kickstarter? Watch how easy it is to buy a TrapTap here:

TrapTap is a simple and stylish wireless button that warns you of speed traps, red light cameras, and school zones by flashing different colors. Best yet, it has a 2-year battery life!

It already knows the location of every red light camera and school zone but relies on its community of users to mark the location of mobile and radar traps. 

TrapTap is completely legal (not a radar detector) and acts like your personal co-pilot, constantly warning you of danger. To us, he is like our little buddy who always sits shotgun. It simply sits on your dash and is designed to save you cash.

The purchase of 1 TrapTap is far less than the cost of 1 speeding ticket. The average person spends $300 in tickets or more a year. That is a life savings of over $12,000!

Even if you don't get a lot of tickets, TrapTap could save you the possibility of getting that "surprise" ticket when you least expect it. 

                                        

So let's face it, we ALL hate seeing these in our rearview mirrors...

Or having these magically appear out of nowhere... Which are easy to miss or sometimes impossible to see.

 Let alone accidentally hitting one of these...

Or having come across one of these &@#$% vehicles... when sometimes, our heavy foot just has a mind of its own.

With being dangerous and illegal to use mobile apps while driving, we found a better way to save you from those speeding tickets and add some safety in your life.

How To Use

TrapTap adapts to fit your lifestyle. Have it blink when you come near a trap or only if you're speeding near one.

To set a trap, double tap your TrapTap. 

Same goes for clearing traps that are no longer there. Just tap it twice.

Simply "snooze" your TrapTap alerts by clicking the top button once.

Your TrapTap is connected to your phone and uses its GPS and the TrapTap app to send the device notifications. Connect the free app once and never have to touch it again.

Your TrapTap comes with a reusable sticky pad. You can stick it almost anywhere in your car. 

 Easily move it from car to car.

                                        

 Available Colors

You will be able to customize your TrapTap and select accessories when we confirm your shipping details at the end of the campaign.

 Limited Edition Colors

Well simply speaking, you and everyone who has a TrapTap is officially apart of the TrapTap Army. Congratulations Private! "Salute"

We rely on you and the community to help warn drivers of those mobile speed and radar traps. We know the location of each red light camera and school zone, and rely on each other to help find the rest.

How do you compare?

They say the average cops issues $300,000 worth of speeding tickets each year... Yikes.

Our team has spent months building, testing, and perfecting TrapTap to get to the design we have today. Our journey has been epic (with a few speeding tickets for testing) and below you can see how we progressed through our different prototype stages to finally bring you TrapTap. 

Version 1
Version 1

In October we partnered with a design firm that has built products sold in Apple stores with manufacturing facilities in Winnipeg and Texas. We spent numerous hours testing and recalibrating as you can see below.

After finding the right design and sourcing out the correct components and LED's, we finally had a product ready for production.

Risks and challenges

We have some of the best hardware engineers and product designers working nonstop to deliver such a top notch product. There's always risks that can delay this process and trust us when we say we have taken every precaution necessary to ensure minimal delays in getting your (amazing, awesome, innovative) TrapTap to you on time. We are the black and white, transparent, open door policy type, so we believe it's a great idea to share some possible issues we might be dealing with.

-Parts, pieces, and components - Everything under the hood-

TrapTap was built to be simplistic, and boy is it ever! However, it contains components that come from different suppliers and there is always the risk of not receiving the right components on time. If any of these suppliers have a change in lead time or short supply, it will delay production on our end.

-Manufacturing, production, quality testing - Bringing it to life-

We are always improving and enhancing TrapTap to ensure it ships with superior quality. All the way from how it looks to feels, how the button clicks to functions, even down to how it smells. Quality takes time and is not something we want to sacrifice. Making these enhancements will increase your experience with TrapTap.

-Shipping, customs, delivery - Logistics stuff-

There is always the risk of product getting stuck at customs. This can happen when we are shipping units to you or when our suppliers are shipping components to us. We are prepared for this battle and will fight it to the best of our abilities.
