Bear traps are small traps that are laid out on the ground for unsuspecting victims to be caught in. They can, however, be disarmed upon activation with the "use" button. Another way to disarm the trap is to shoot the center with an arrow. However, it is recommended to explore with caution if the Dragonborn has a follower with them, as they can easily blunder into them.

If the Dragonborn has the "Light Foot" perk in the Sneakskill-tree, when using physics-carry, moving the bear trap towards oneself while stepping on it will lift them off of the ground for a short period of time before dropping again.
