The company is helpful and very responsive. I purchased this same trap B4 and loved it!! I ordered a second , and the Quality was POOR! EVERYWHERE! Poor bends , door didn't shut very well, Trigger mechanism rubs on the side and wasn't very sensitive. I had to rework it. Wire was cut poorly and left many pointed sharp wire prongs. It was not operational as received.The trigger wire attached to the trigger plate was bent too long , forcing the trigger wire into the side of the trap causing it to bind and not go off. POOR QUALITY CONTROL!!!!

This trap does not work worth a hoot!!! It looks very similar to a trap I bought a few years ago that worked well, but this model is not very sensitive and our yard is overrun with squirrels. The original trap was made of galvanized metal and this one is painted. About the only thing I have caught in this new trap is snails. I tried to give it a zero star rating but apparently this is not allowed.
Bought this trap after speaking with the rep on the phone. I got it for my Mom. When I took it to her, boy did I ever get an ear full. Every edge was sharp enough to cut yous skin. Yes, it was painted, but that did not help with the edges. My hubby bought some Plasti-Dip. Guess I'll try to brush it on the ends to make sure Mom doesn't need medical attention after setting the trap. She said the last one she bought had some sort of coating.
Dont know if it is me or what But I have yet to catch a squirrel.
