Spring Frame Pocket Net - new superior design

This net is better made and designed than any other pocket net we have ever seen. 

 

Normal price £45.50    SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY PRICE £34.95 

The compact folded size is most convenient for lightweight travel and is ideal for unencumbered field work, when you need both hands free for photography and examination. From pocket to open net is achieved in seconds.

The design is based on an ideal design from Japan that was in the WWB range over 50 years ago, but became unobtainable. After a long absence we have now sourced this updated and even sturdier quality frame, that will last indefinitely and provide a most important aid to field study.

The short handle is nicely balanced, and all that is usually needed, but an adaptor is supplied to allow the use of one of the telescopic handles (available separately and not with this net), when required.

The diameter is an ample 35cm or 14", folding down to only 13cm or 5", easily fitting a trouser pocket.

TO FOLD hold the frame at arm's length (to keep the spring steel away from the face) with both hands, and twist in opposite directions, forming a figure of eight. Draw both hands together, which forms the frame into a small circle. The spring steel can be held in place by hooking it under the knurled knob at the join to the handle. The bag is then wrapped round and tucked into itself, to keep the frame from springing open.

The net bag is fitted by threading the spring steel frame through the net bag rim. The drilled ends of the spring steel are overlapped and secured by a knurled knob that screws into the metal Y-piece with short handle. Included is a thread converter that should be kept in a safe place for use if you wish to use a telescopic handle that uses a 6mm screw thread. 

Please note that the above description and illustrations are given here for reference when you wish to fit the bag and learn to fold it. Printed instructions are not sent with the net, so if you are buying for somebody else, they may need to refer to the above.

 

The same figure of eight fold is shown without the net bag:
