    We have chickens and occasionally get rats which are normally controlled with old fashioned wooden snap traps or rat bait. I have spent the last week+ trying to get a particularly huge and agile ninja rat with no success, each day the traps were empty withh the bait gone. This particular rodent then decided to appear cheekily in the garden in boad daylight without a care in the world, so something had to done! The humane trap arrived last night, was set and amazingly Mr Ratty was safely incarcerated this morning. One night, one rat, job done. What more can be said??? A++++

    I purchased this wire rat cage for £12.20 after spending £32.98 on an ELECTRONIC PEST REPELLER UNIQUE PEST CONTROL - THE WORLDS MOST ADVANCED ELECTRONIC PEST CONTROL PATENT PROTECTED it sounded as if the rats were playing musical chairs so I bought the wire rat cage and after two nights, bingo I caught my first rat although the Electronic system was running at the same time. Need I say anymore? the £12.20 was money well spent.

    I don't really like being negative about anything but there is a slight issue with this trap. It is very sturdy and well made and appears to be just the job. First night I set it up just under a bush in my garden exactly where the rat run is. Got up the next morning and I had caught a blackbird? Poor thing looked traumatised but checked him over before I let him go and he was fine. Next night, trap door had been triggered, bait was gone but no RAT?

    Night number 3 set the trap in the usual place and next morning there was the RAT, job done, I thought so I picked up the trap much to the rats disgust and he went bonkers until he got out through the extra door which is supposed to catch other rats once the door has been sprung. So there you have it. It works but it is flawed. I suggest wiring the additional door permanently shut to avoid escapes.

    For the record, I kept setting the trap for another 2 weeks and caught nothing! I think the rat had wised up and told his mates to steer clear.

    I actually bought this exact trap from a local supplier not Amazon (Toolstation). When I eventually managed to lure the rat in using peanut butter, the cage sprang and the door closed, rat jumped about in panic, hit the door, door lifted up enough for rat to run off! This was partly my fault and partly the fault of the instructions on how to set the trap.There is a sliding bar to hold the door shut once closed. It is quite easy for this bar to stay sat at the top of the cage when you set it. You need to make sure that this bar is set to slide down in front of the cage trap door when it snaps shuts. I ntend too pursue the rat further with this trap and expect it to hold it at least for a few hours now I know aboutt eh locking bar?

    I bought this rat cage to catch the rats in my garden as the reviews were very good for this item.
    The frist night I caught a hedgehog the next night the rat got in eat the snack then got out???????????????????????
    I tried again but nothing then lastnight I put the cage out in the same place all set up with a line attached to let me know that the trap has gone off. In was woken through the night (3am) as the cage door shut the line pulled a tin off the table in my flat so i went to check. I found the cage was bent and there was no snack and no rat.
    This cage is not strong enough to hold a rat and the flap at the front of the cage that lets the rat enter can be lifted up by a rat or if that fails ratty can just bend the cheap wire cage to let himself out.

    I am now going back to using poison placed in 1.5 meter long sections of drain pipe with a hole in the center of the pipe to put the poison in. I have a dog so I cover the pipe so that the only way in is through either end too small for a dog or cat, with the hole for putting the poison in also coverd. This is a safe and cheap way of controlling rats. And to all those people that say its wrong to kill rats in this way they should look up the diseases they can spread and have done.

    A couple of rats made their home in my back garden. After two weeks of them getting within a couple of inches of the trap all we've managed to catch so far have been a couple of blackbirds (both survived being caught). Rats have now vanished so maybe a neighbour employed a rather more lethal way of dealing with them. Glad I bought something non-lethal as both blackbirds that wandered into the trap survived with no ill effects.

    Only thing I would say is I paid for first class delivery and the trap took over a week to arrive. That's the last time I pay extra for delivery with Amazon, Supersaver might had been quicker!

    Maybe I was being stupid, but I wanted to use this under my floorboards. I noted the advertised dimensions - 16 cm high, and I had a space 20cm high in which to try to catch my rat. But to operate, this trap needs a clearance of at least 30cm for the release bar to pivot upwards when released. It would be nice if this was explained in the info.
    So it was no good for my personal circumstances, however, it does look like a good sturdy trap that should do the trick if you have plenty of space.

    Totally ineffective in catching the rat. Bait taken every time, door left shut, no sign of rat. I think the problem is that any reasonable size adult rat still has its backside outside the cage when it's mouth is tucking into the bait - the door shuts on the rats back and it then just reverses out easily against the low force of the spring on the door, or if it does get "trapped" fully inside, it just pushes the door back open and away it goes.

    Rat eventually had to be dealt with by poison.
