Both mice and customers beware; the Mini T-Rex is a poorly constructed trap made of cheap plastic. I ordered several of them. Three of them were broken on arrival. So far, I have deployed five of these traps. Three of them were of no use after a single catch. The act of catching a mouse actually did irreparable damage to the trap. One can see where the lever and the catch-bar are broken, but nothing can be done to repair the trap. Do not buy this item. It is simply not sturdy enough.
These are a one time use trap! Two of the three traps I purchase broke after catching one mouse. If you want something that is reusable DON'T BUY THE MINI-TREX. Can anyone tell me of some better traps! Thanks
Does a good job of catching a mouse ONCE. If it lasts to catch another...you are very fortunate.
