Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mikep Bait correctly.
Two of these came in two days ago. The same day i got them and was figuring out how to chain them together, what length of chain to use , size of locks, etc. I saw a rat run from a bush next to my back door to a tunnel underneath my garage. I baited the traps with peanut butter on a strip of cardboard which just fit behind the rigger plate. I smushed sweet corn kernels onto the PB for added added attractiveness. Success! Last night I thought I'd try two halves of a breakfast roll smeared with PB and corn. Failure! I even heard metallic sounds as they were removing the bait. It's back to the cardboard. I believe the cardboard gets stuck in the grid work of the trap and the rat springs the door. Maybe tomorrow I'll send another one to Davey Jone's Locker.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hera Perfect Squirrel Trap
I set 5 of these traps on the roofs of my bird aviaries under some avocado trees which the squirrels damage. I baited the traps with small avocados and some bird seed. Within 45 minutes the first squirrel was trapped, so I moved one of the other traps to that location, and caught another one a couple hours later. The traps are
extremely easy to set and bait, and they are a perfect size to keep the squirrels safe and secure until releasing them. This trap is beautifully constructed and very strong. I highly recommend this trap for squirrels. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Arima well made but trip pan mechanism needs to be more sensitive
Maybe for heavier critters, but for squirrels the trip pan mechanism needs to be more sensitive. I prefer this model http://www.homedepot.com/p/Havahart-Small-2-Door-Animal-Trap-1025/100064103. I wish there was a bigger version of it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mikep Rat caught right away.
Two pre-assembled traps arrived on 7-6-16 (yesterday). The hardest thing to do was finding a suitable length of chain for them and appropriately sized locks to secure them from theft. I found a length of sturdy chain that stretches across the back yard. It is so long I can add a couple more traps to it and run a trap line if necessary. While figuring this out I saw a rat run from underneath a bush right next to my back door to what turned ut to be her tunnel underneath my garage. I secured the traps and chain, placed one under the bush, the other near the tunnel's entrance. The Swiss Chard growing there prevented exact trap placement right in front of the tunnel. At 7 this morning I checked the traps. The one by the garage held a female rat with a tumor on her right shoulder. I drowned her in the rain barrel (attach a light chain to the handle for easy retrieval).
Things I like about this trap: It's light weight and more maneuverable than the 1079.
The offset handle gives the trap more stability.
It can be held away from the body, eliminating the threat of animal bites.
There's a hole in the door release lever enabling the placement of an eye hook for easier door opening. The 1079 has this feture--I never noticed how it could be used until yesterday--ok, I'm a little slow to catch on at times.
Baiting is easy. I used a strip of cardboard with PB and sweet corn kernels smushed on them. I'll try rolls with PB and corn and even sections of uncooked corn cobs with PB on them. Just don't eat out of the same jar that you used to bait the traps.
The pre-assembly saves a lot of time, "For a Few Dollars More".
The sensitivity of the striker plate. I don't think the bait will be stolen now.
I can practice Christian principles on an almost daily basis: "Whom soever corrupted these little children; it were better for him that great millstones be placed around his neck and he be drowned in the depths of the sea". I don't have the mill stones. I do have my Havaharts..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MIKE4LESS Havahart Animal Cage Trap
This animal trap worked great. Within 4 hours of setting the trap I caught my first squirrel. The next squirrel I caught was a little smarter and I had to get a little creative on how I placed the food in the trap (but it was captured within 2 days). The trap is easy to set and just as easy to release the animal after it is caught. For the money I spent I couldn't ask for a better product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Allen44 Very good trap, great value.
relatively easy to set the trap but would recommend practicing a couple of times before putting it outside. By practicing, I mean set it then poke the sensitive flap to trigger the door shut. Then practice opening the door to release the animal.
The trap door will not remain open by itelf for release of animal. Even the instructions state you have to have a stick to keep it open. So this is a slight flaw in the design. I caught a squirrel, kept the door open for about 15 seconds and it still would not run out; my fingers became stressed so Iet go and the trap door instantly shut - I could have injured the squirrel with that shut but thankfully did not. I then had to open the door again and this time it ran out.
