Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RobertJ Good trap for medium sized animals. Not so much for squirrels
Not having seen what was running around in my attic, I didn't know what I was looking for. I was assuming a squirrel or two. It easily got over the trip plate and took the bait. I taped a metal extender on the trip plate and put peanut butter on it. Again he ate the bait and was not caught. The second time I did catch him. It turned out to be a small red squirrel.
My experience says to me this trap is too big for squirrels. I will get something smaller. For a larger heavier animal, this trap most likely would work fine. The three stars are for an inaccurate description as the product would seem to work fine on a larger animal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RCB Excellent product
I purchased this trap because of a red squirrel that was getting out of the larger trap. I have to say that the "easy set" feature is leaps and bounds easier than my older traps. One hand set and no trying to balance the trap pieces to set. Wonderful improvement and well worth the price. Should carry these in the stores and not the other style.

This trap works great. Make sure to place the peanuts all the way to the back but in the middle so squirrels can't reach them from outside the cage. Also to make the trigger more sensitive place a twig under the handle. Relocated 10 squirrels in 4 days. No more chewing holes through everything plastic / vinyl including my siding.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by allthingsvu For medium size animals like bunnies, not for rats
This trap is for medium size animals like bunnies and not for rats or mouse. Rats and mouse weight is too little for the trap door to work. I modified this one to catch 3 rats in my backyard.

Trap is exactly as pictured, and described. Is easy to bait and set. Seams to be the correct size for the rabbits that I hope to catch and relocate. I've had the trap out for over a week, but haven't caught anything yet- must be too much other attractive food sources competing for rabbits attention i.e. my flowers, and garden vegitables. Using sliced apples, carrots, lettuce as bait. I figure that once the critters get used to seeing the trap they will get curious enough to go inside for their treats.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stormin Nice upgrade
I purchased this trap to replace one that was smaller and just not large enough to get rid of the gray squirrels I was trying to capture. This trap is easier to set and larger than the smaller one I was using and it has worked beautifully.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1whothesquirrelhates dimensions are not accurate on Home Depot website
The Home Depot website says this is a 9.58 by 9.58 inch trap. Actual dimensions are 7 by 7 inches.
The trap functions wonderfully. I placed a couple of magnets 1 x 2 x 3/8 on the trip plate to allow for easier tripping. Other than the dimension inaccuracy it seems to be a fine trap. I hope Home Depot changes the specifications on their site. So far the squirrels hate it...Me, I am happy...
