    Here is the ATA rule(s) ... Bill Malcolm

    Traphouses must adequately protect the trap loaders and shall not
    be higher than necessary for that purpose. It is recommended that
    traphouses constructed after September 1, 2003 shall conform to the
    following specifications:
    1. Length not less than 7 feet, 6 inches, nor more than 9 feet, 6
    inches.
    2. Width not less than 7 feet, 6 inches, nor more than 9 feet, 6 inches.
    3. Height not less than 2 feet, 2 inches, nor more than 3 feet, 0 inches,
    the height to be measured from the plane of the number 3 shooting
    position.
    It is recommended that the throwing surface (throwing arm or plate) of
    the trap machine be on the same level as that of Post 3 and the target
    height setting pad.
