Humaniac™ Cage Net

  • Price $112.00 EACH

The Humaniac™ Cage Net is one of our most popular nets.  It features a deep, soft fine-meshed net where the hoop opens and closes by a sliding handle.  The net has a unique hoop shape to help fit into cage corners.  It’s simple to use and best of all gentle on the animal.

Ideally suited for use when handling factious cats, snakes and other wildlife under 20lbs (11kg).  The zipper at the bottom of the bag makes for easy transfers/releases.

The Cage Net (with storage cover)  is a practical multipurpose net which can be used on a wide variety of animals under 20 lbs.  Featuring a deep 30″ long, soft fine-meshed net with a full sized zipper in the bottom, making transfers/release and examinations easier. When the slide is pushed to the open position the net resembles the letter “D” and to close simply slide the handle back and it will snap shut quickly to secure your capture, then roll the net onto the pole to reduce the space in the net.  This will calm the animal and reduce movement making it easier to transport.

Features Include:

  • Net 30″ L x 18″ W – constructed from soft small mesh nylon
  • Hoop when open at it’s widest point is 17″
  • Pole 50″ long constructed from lightweight aluminum
  • Total weight 2.5 lbs

How to use your Cage Net:

The Humaniac™ Cage Net can be used on animals up to 25lbs (12kgs).

Open the net by removing the cover and unravelling the net from the frame.  Place one hand on the black plastic grip and the other hand of the black tube handle on the end of the net and push it towards the grip.

Once you have the animal secured inside the net, pull back the plastic handle towards the end of the net and roll the net at least one full turn.  By doing this it will secure the opening and prevent the animal escaping, it will also release the stress of the weight of the animal on the wire hoop.

To release the animal from the net you can either unroll the net and release from the top or use the convenient zipper at the bottom of the net to release the animal.

Care Instructions:

Do not use bleach on your net, this will damage the net and mechanisms.  You can disinfect the net by spraying it with any non-bleach cleaning solution.  Should netting become stiff over time you can dip it into a bucket of fabric softener.  Periodically lube the track (inner tube area) where the round piece of plastic travels with general-purpose silicone spray to reduce the sticking that may happen after cleaning.  Always store your net in a closed position away from direct sunlight.

Open & Closing Mechanism

A sliding handle mechanism easily opens and closes the Cage Net.

Tangle-Free Mesh

The small mesh size greatly reduces the chance of tangling and makes for easier releases.  This mesh also helps reduce the risk of damaging or splaying the feathers of birds.

The Freeman Cage Net

We are a small animal veterinary clinic. This our second Freeman cage net. The first lasted ten years. For the occasional escaped feral cat there is nothing better. This model is much improved from our previous net. The cover is great for storage and the black hides the stains. Anyone dealing with small animal escapees should have this product handy. - Anonymous

Best Trapping Device

The Best net ever. I've been able to trap like never before - Anonymous

Freeman cage net

The rod inside the metal tube is bent and protrudes out of the cut-out section of the tube when closed. This does seem to catch and rub against the inside of the tube when extending or retracting the net closure, causing a less-than -smooth transition . It still closes and retracts, but catching a feral cat seems so tricky , that I would like to be confident that the net is working correctly. The manufacturer said that this happens sometimes, but it shouldn’t be a problem , - Christine gentry

Great Equipment

We were trying to trap a hurt cat for weeks and this amazing device got her on our first try with it!! Sadly it was cancer and she had to be PTS but thankfully she won’t suffer any more!! - Angelo Ruffo

Great customer service and net!!

I received EXCELLENT customer service when I purchased this net. Very responsive to my inquiries! I had to change shipping and John was excellent! As far as the net, I had never had to net before and found this net after searching online and had to get one ASAP! It was very easy to use and I felt this one would be safe for me and the cat I had to net. I was successful in netting the sick cat. Thank you! - Anonymous

Just What I Was Looking For

This is the perfect net I've been looking for factious cats, with it's sliding handle and zipper release - Anonymous

This net works!

I'm doing TNR in my neighborhood. I got all the semi tame females caught and had to find a way to selectively catch the remaining feral females. I found this net online and watched the video. I was sceptical but decided to give it a shot. Dang, it works exactly like the video shows! There is a learning curve...I practiced on my house cats to their dismay. Caught my first feral cat a week later. Offloaded her in the crate with no injury to her or me. Down to just one left to catch now and my neighborhood won't have any unwanted kittens born this year. This net is truly awesome!

Great product for Safe Handling

I used the Humaniac™ Cage Net to help catch a cat that would not go into a humane trap for Trap Neuter Return (TNR). I had been trying to catch this cat for 5 years. I was able to safely catch him with the Net & transfer him into a trap with no injuries to either of us. This is a great product & I highly recommend it for the safe handling of feral & unfriendly cats. - Anonymous
