I ordered this because it was close to the size I was looking for, which isn't a size that's particularly easy to find. Most are quite a deal larger than this or too small for a small to average size cat (we're using them for trapping feral kittens and moms).
It's the right size and works, but compared to the dozens of other traps I have used, it's really poorly made. It feels much like it was constructed of melted aluminum cans--super light weight, very flimsy, especially for this price (which was about on par with similar and even larger items that are better made/coated with plastic over a steel frame, provide more features, etc).
Warning, it's also in no way coated with anything. Not even a basic metal coating or clear spray coat. Suggest that if you buy this, you give it a clear coat before putting outside. It's going to rust.
That said, the operation of the mechanism is great and sensitive, shipping was fast.
No fault to Do My Own, but i'd honestly skip the Tomahawk brand and look for something more robust if you're trying to trap anything more feisty than a squirrel or kitten. I do believe anything like a skunk or racoon, while they would fit, could break out of this.
