This trap is a very nice alternative to just eliminating the animal. It was fairly easy to setup, bait the trap and catch the small critter. Just after a few days of waiting, my son heard the animal running back an forth inside the cage. I checked on it , and sure enough there it was.

This worked like a charm. I put a little peanut butter as suggested and caught the little critter in less than an hour. Safe and easy to use. I transported to a park and let the chipmunk go.

Put some peanut butter on a dog treat and caught the chipmunk in my basement within 5 minutes.
Great trap. More humane than my first option to catch a chipmunk.

Did not work for a squirrel
I had a Squirrel in my front yard and it kept eating the peanut butter and setting off the trap but never with him inside

Thank you for this feedback. We're sorry to hear that this critter did not get caught! When baiting, we recommend trying with only one door open and tying the bait to the trap, behind the trip plate. Alternatively, you can dig a small hole under the trip plate and place the bait inside. These methods will make the animal work harder to access the bait and stay in the trap longer, which can increase the chances of a successful catch.

Best trap I ever bought!
Trap works well. Easy to use and set up. One drawback is there is no way to attach the bait to the trigger plate. Bait must sit on top.
Overall worth the price. I've already caught 4 rats.

Easy to setup. Can use with only 1 door open forcing the prey to enter through other opened door. Suggest to place bait near closed door in order to force prey to walk over the trigger mechanism thus forcing the entrance door to close. May need to adjust the triggering wire, when using only one entrance, to fully ensure the closing of the opened door. Sensitive enough to be triggered by the weight of a grackle bird.

WORKS - but takes patience.
This trap works! I had a family of squirrels living under my barrel roof tiles and this cage caught all of them, one by one. I had three squirrels within a week and haven't had a problem since.
And as the brand suggests (Have A Heart), it is the humane thing to do. You might think it is easier to kill the animal with a lethal trap or poison, but that introduces so many problems you will regret it later.
Take some time to read how to set the trap, otherwise when all your hard work pays off and the animal goes inside, they'll walk right out because you didn't have the locks set right. Test the trap by tripping the plate and make sure the doors close and are locked/secured.
I caught the first squirrel by putting the trap near the base of the tree they used to climb up on my roof. She would go out daily to forage for food and return to the nest. Squirrels are most active in the morning and evening, so try to put the trap out early. I caught her within 24 hours of placing the trap. I used peanut butter. I drove about 5 miles from my house and released her into a nice wooded area.
The second and third squirrels were a little more difficult to entice down the tree, so I placed the trap on the roof and within a few days had caught both. Took them to the same wooded park and released them without any issues or injuries.
Main Advice - Peanut Butter, Place Trap Early in the Morning, Make Sure to Set the Trap Correctly with Locking Handles in Right Position.

Squirrel just runs right out as doors close
Either I have a super squirrel or the product is poorly designed in that the squirrel runs right out the door before it is fully shut. Yes the door jabs were in the right position to lock door, still didn't hold squirrel in.

Mouse in the Garage
Noticed a couple days in a row that the landing on my basement garage stairs had some droppings scattered near the door way at the top of the stairs. Headed to HD to pick up a small double door trap. Set it up in less than 2 mins...peanut butter and some black sunflower seeds dabbed onto the trigger plate and then put it near the bottom of the stairs. I sprinkled some more seeds just at the opening to entice...turned off the lights and in less than an hour...BAM! Worked like a champ! Took him for a ride and released in a natural wooded park. This is the best trap!
