I have been doing TNR since January and have tried out a lot of traps to find out what I wanted to purchase. These are the best. They are affordable, made of heavy duty/coated wire, and prevent escapes better than other affordable traps. I wish they came in colors and came slightly bigger, but so far the size has worked great for us. We have caught more than 50 cats using these traps and have nothing but good things to say. The trigger plate goes off when the cat steps on it so it is leveraged better than other similar looking but more expensive traps. I hope buy.com keeps these in stock. It is also very handy in that you can open it from both sides...essentially using it for a transfer cage from a drop trap if you prefer. This also makes it easy to put food in....i.e. you don't have to reach all the way in. The vets we work with like these traps more than than other name brands. They close quickly and quietly which prevents undue startling reactions. Easy to set, easy to use, easy to loan to others. These do not require the regular maintenance of other traps which can be too slow or fast on the trigger mechanism. A good trap for the first time or experienced trapper. You can set it to go off quickly or with more force needed depending on how you far you pull the bar. Highly recommend!
