CINCH Trapping Tips:

After you have set your Cinch traps leave the hole open, air movement is important. In the event you have concerns about the open hole, just put a bucket or a small piece of wood over the hole leaving room for air movement.

If you think your trap has the scent from a predator you should clean them with soap and water and lightly spray with CINCH Maintenance Spray. This process will eliminate any scent on the trap. Predator (mostly dogs and cats) scent will alert moles and gophers to danger and they will plug the trap.

Using flags to mark your set is a great idea, especially when setting several sets. Always remove all traps from the area when doing ground maintenance. Traps and tractors do not work well together.

CINCH Most Asked Trapping Questions: 

Question- I received the mole traps, followed the directions, overnight the trap was sprung and I pulled the trap out it was empty. Thoughts?

Answer- Sometimes when you set the trap, if there is a bend in the tunnel the mole can get by and then can set the trap from the back and will back fill the hole with dirt. When you set the trap get a long dowel or stick and make sure the tunnel is straight, long and really cleared out. That way you know they won't be able to get around your trap. If they get around the trap they can push the dirt onto the plates which will set off the trap.

Question- Do I have moles or gophers?

Answer- There are several ways to identify what you have working in your yard. First, let’s look at the food source; moles eat bugs, grubs, and worms. Gophers on the other hand, eat vegetation, roots and grasses. Take a good look around your area to identify the food source. Second, let’s look at your above ground activity. Moles will have a perfect mound of soil; very seldom will you see any open holes. Moles will also leave a raised tunnel system just below the sod. Gophers will have a lower mounding of soil in a horse shoe shape; many times you may see an open hole in the center of the activity. Identifying you activity is important to achieve control. The Cinch mole and gopher traps are of different sizes and the proper trap is critical for your success.

Question- How do I know what size trap?

Answer- Find the tunnel, which means digging down past the mound and get to the tunnel that is parallel to the surface. That is the animals run or main tunnel. That is where you will be putting the trap. The jaws of the trap when set, should fit snug into the tunnel. It is better to get a slightly larger trap than your tunnel size than too small. Make sure the jaws are not resting at a bend in the tunnel, because then the animal can get around the trap as well.

Question- I set two traps one in each direction, and the animals covered them with dirt, and the trap wasn't sprung. What am I doing wrong?

Answer- The animal is getting around the trap, or the animal is using a different tunnel that leads to the same mound. You will need to dig around and find the alternative tunnel that the animal is using and set a trap in that tunnel as well.

    4 of 5 stars  A sure thing
    By Wescott in Spring, Texas on 06/22/2014

    A friend of mine said he was so frustrated with gopher damage to his yard that he waited by the mound with his shotgun. Cinch traps no longer require you to resort to heavy artillery. These traps are deadly. They work immediately. The key is to find the tunnel opening which will require some digging and probing. Be sure you open the entrance just enough to insert the working end of the trap into the entrance. For a little incentive to trip the trap try putting a wine cork in front of the trigger mechanism. I have 5 acres with 50 years of gopher problems going unaddressed. Cinch traps work for me at a 75% success rate.

    5 of 5 stars  CINCH Traps Gopher Trap
    By Allan in Elk City, Oklahoma on 12/04/2013
    Verified Purchase

    The 5 Star rating is well deserved. I live in an area infested by the rodents and through the years, have tried every thing to bring them under control. Smoke bombs, flooding, poison pellets, various traps, etc. but nothing really worked. Within one hour of placing this product, a gopher was caught. It was the first of about 10 and what a difference in the appearance of my yard. Simply an excellent product.

    5 of 5 stars  Cinch Gopher Trap
    By in Santa Barbara, CA on 08/05/2013
    Verified Purchase

    I've been troubled by gophers for many years and tried all of the local remedies from gassers, sound poles, claw traps and the box and round traps. Some worked in frequently and others not at all. Prior to purchasing my Cinch trap I had used all of those traps to mo avail on a small wily gopher that was ruining my garden. My Chinch trap got her on the first try!

    By Vivian in Santa Cruz, California on 06/07/2017

    I love these traps. I caught 4 gophers in the first two weeks. I hadn't been able to get them for a year with the macabre traps I used for years and they were rampaging through my lawn. Thank you, cinch traps!

    5 of 5 stars  works perfect
    By Gary in Citrus Springs on 04/27/2018

    Have tried several different methods for controling gophers in our Florida lawn without any success. Based on reviews about the Cinch trap I decided to give it a try. It took three attempts to finally trap the rodent but the first two failures were my fault. Once I better understood how the trap must be aligned with the tunnel it worked perfectly and in a very short time. Would definitely recommend.

    5 of 5 stars  Best Trap Ever
    By Brenda in Tulsa, Oklahoma on 12/29/2017

    I have tried everything, poison pellets, sonic stakes. I have 1 acre and caught 7 gophers in a week. My property is now free of those critters. If another one moves in I'm armed and ready. Thank you for a great product.

    5 of 5 stars  Shakey start, ultimate success!
    By Pam in Colorado on 05/16/2017

    Purchased the small size trap. First attempt on an active open hole resulted in a sprung trap with no gopher caught. Dug out tunnel a bit more and diameter was a good 3.5-4 inches wide! I tried to reset the trap but alas it was too hard for me, plus I was scared of it frankly! Next two active tunnels also produced same results, gopher caught. The third try the gopher had back filled in front of the trap and quickly dug a new exit hole perpendicular to that one. I prepped the hole so the trap layed as flat as possible and staked it from behind so it couldn't be pushed back by the gopher. The tunnel was the perfect diameter for the small trap and fit snuggly inside. Five minutes later the pocket gopher was toast! Hubby came home and reset the trap for me. There was a new active hole early in the evening so put the trap in. Next morning RIP gopher! These traps are phenomenal and work beautifully and quickly. Ordered a large trap for the monster from the first attempt! Just wish I could set it myself but it's not the traps fault that I have wimpy hands!

  • 5 of 5 stars  CINCH Traps
    By Danita in Middletown ohio on 06/19/2016

    These really work when other products didn't. Just follow the instructions or watch a video on line then Get to killing. It took me a few tries cause I used a gopher trap which is a little bigger than a mole trap and I had a mole but never the less I got him. Only thing I would tell you is check the size of the hole and get the size that will fit in it. I used a 2 1/2 inch size I could have caught it sooner if I had the smaller one, but it still worked once I placed it correctly. Now I got my yard back. Great product!

    I'm at War the the with the gophers in my yard. I have tried poison, water down the holes, other types of traps, I borrowed a friends rodantator (caddy shack) blow up the holes , that was fun but but was not able to get the varmints until getting the clench trap and the first day in the hole had action. As soon as you see a new hole place the trap in and expect results.
