There are several different types of traps, so I will not go into detail about them.

Basically, traps are designed to either block out a channel (or group of channels), or to block out the interference which scrambles a channel.

If your provider wants to prevent your cable modem from detecting a signal, they can place a trap on your line that blocks the range of frequencies that the cable modem runs on.

You can find more information about traps online elsewhere.
