comment
" ...  When I saw a few mouse dropping in my attic I knew I needed to take action. ... I have not trapped a mouse yet, I suspect they have moved out, but I feel good knowing that if I do I can drive them away to start a new life somewhere else.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The mechanism is very sensitive, but the mouse has to be all the way inside to trigger it so they don't get the opportunity to run. ... Releasing a captured mouse is easy and safe  ...  "
comment
" ...  My house cat alerted me to the fact there was a mouse in the house by sitting on the kitchen table all night and staring at his food bowl as if ready to pounce on something.  ...  "

comment
" ...  It was easy to release it, and to clean it again afterwards.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Bingo -- these traps are easy to use, easy to clean (I leave a used trap in a bucket of water for a few hours, then hose it down and dry it), very reliable, and I can tell at a glance if one has been caught. ... The Tin Cat traps are metal, more difficult to use and clean, and you have to open them up to see if mice are inside - and sometimes a mouse will escape during that process.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have dogs, rabbits, and a Roomba that would frequently brush up against my old traps and set them off. ... These traps withstood meddling from my dogs, rabbits, and withstood the Roomba, and remained set.  ...  "

" ...  It's the spring trap door that is the issue.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It appeared to me that it would be possible to modify the door of the trap by trimming it's edges by 1/8th of an inch, so removed the doors of the two traps I purchased, got out my dremel tool and trimmed them down. ... - Unfortunately, while I did account for and leave the two points that are stopped by the tabs to lock the door in place - I mistakenly trimmed the top of the door, so the doors no longer were able to set the trap on the rocker panel that triggers the spring (my bad!!).  ...  "
