The telephone tap detector is one of the most useful inventions ever and it has become a necessity in today's society.

Despite all the many benefits that come from this incredible device, it is also one of the most serious threat to your privacy in existence to this day. Your phone line can be wiretapped or bugged and the telephone instrument itself can be quickly and easily converted to a very efficient room monitor. While it is scary how easily people can invade your privacy, we have something that can help. Introducing the Tap Trap™ - the world’s best Telephone Wire Tap Detector!

Unfortunately there isn’t too much that can be done about down-line taps. However, using the Tap Trap™, you can check your phone line for on-premises series and parallel bugs and wiretaps. You can also check your telephone for the most common types of hookswitch bypasses which bypass is a modification to the telephone instrument so that the carbon microphone (transmitter) or dynamic earphone (receiver) will pick up room sounds and pass them down the phone line to a listening post even with the phone hung up. This effectively turns the telephone into a room monitor.

The Tap Trap™ detects series devices with a resistance of 61 ohms or more. That is because most series taps have a resistance of over 100 ohms. It also detects parallel devices with a resistance of 65 megohms or less since most parallel taps are under 30 meg-ohms. It even detects certain capacitively coupled taps. If you’re trying to detect phone taps there is no better solution than the Tap Trap™.

Please note that the Tap Trap™ is not a device which is intended to be connected permanently to a working phone line. It’s a test set that allows you check your on-premises wiring and telephones for eavesdropping devices or taps. In order to do this, you must be able to disconnect your inside wiring from the telephone line coming into your home or business. This is done at the interface between the telephone line and inside wiring; usually just by unplugging a cable at the interface box mounted on the side of the building. There is nothing difficult about this, but, of course, you must have access to this interface box.
