|For an overview of bear traps as traps throughout the Fallout series, see traps.|
Bear traps have a pressure activated switch that causes two teethed hinges to spring and latch onto whatever stepped on it. Once something steps on it, it has a high chance to cripple their legs. Although they weigh eight pounds, only a few are needed at a time because they can be retrieved after being set and tripped or disarmed.
