I have never used one of these things since we live in the country and can take care
of most nuisance critters without being patrolled by the area sheriff. If the animal
is going into the trap but the trap is to slow to catch the animal I would look at
the mechanism and see if there are any springs or whatever that could be replaced
with a stronger supposedly faster spring.
     My biggest worry would be catching one of those racing kitties with a stripe
down it's back.  Don't think I would want to empty that trap at all. LOL

in sticks to hold them partway down, are just too slow once gravity takes over. More
than looks like: even sitting inside hearing it trip as unexpectedly as the animal
does, it seems like an awful lot of brain cycles go by before it actually slams to.

Thanks in advance.
