While I like the exterior durability of the trap, I am hesitant to use it without modifying the interior design.
The two interior screws are left long and the metal trip pad seems like it could also injure a scared animal as it pops back up after stepping on it.
Having one handle towards the front with no other grip creates unbalanced and awkward handling.
Perhaps would benefit with two handles to balance out the weight of the trap or a grip at the back of the trap.
I purchased two of these in hopes to have a safe place for feral cats to stay in if caught overnight or for long drives to the rescue.
In the past, I kept a cat overnight in a cage and by morning, its paws were bloody from thrashing.
I will be doing a quick modification to them by covering the trip pad and long screws with duct tape.
