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.
