4.0 out of 5 stars Works excellently - after a little modification, 11 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Live Catch Humane Trip Trap Mouse Trap
We live in the country and have had one of these Pest-Stop traps for a couple of years now. When we first tried it we caught nothing despite the door closing on it a few times so I thought it was worthless.

However, I stuck a heavy metal nut to the door (the side that faces down when the trap is primed) to give it a bit more weight so it would close quicker and since then we've caught about 20 mice ranging from small to large and only once seen the bait gone without a mouse inside.

As for bait, I agree that they love chocolate - they've had a fair bit of my Dairy Milk between them!

So, I would recommend it but only with the modification - I came online to see about getting another one or two!

Great advice. Don't use too much weight or the door will not stay up. I used 2 x 1p coins (UK) they worked perfectly.

i agree, great advice, where do the coins go then, pls decribe this to this 'ere woman, with me it was: mouse went in, food eaten, mouse went out, trap was closed when I came home, no mouse, so what is the problem? the door doesn't close fast enough? and the weight has the function of what and how does it work with the weights? thanks. ^__^

Hi Nanny Ogg,
The weight of the coin (or metal washer, nut etc) simply causes the door to close more quickly. The speed of closing is the problem without the modification as the mouse escapes before the door can shut, as you have discovered - they're fast little critters!

The weight should be stuck to the outside of the 'door' which becomes the underside of the door when the trap is 'set'. Put it towards the bottom of the door to get the best effect but make sure it's not so low that it stops the door closing.

I hope that helps explain it a bit better and I hope you have success in catching your little visitors.
