Motor car tyres drill holes in top wall to let air out and stop them from floating away you could rope them together .
Well thats what I see some people have put down but I have none of my own

cheers for that,

so the crabs climb over the top of the type and get stuck inside- is that the idea ? Do people catch many this way- what would it be - four or five crabs a night?

no there not traps the crab come and go from the tyres you check them as often as you can . the crabs go into the tyres to find shelter when they moulting,but also hard crabs will use the tyres too.some times of the year there be more peelers then others.you place the tyre in soft mud and they will have to be staked down so they wond drift off.
