Not to say that trap bar deadlifts do not work your lower back.
From my experience every person who gets into a trap bar bows the back in the initial pull from the hips driving back rather than up. I threw the ones from our weight room in storage. Total junk in my opinion. If I am taking the time to teach someone to lift, I wouldn't waist my time on it.
