    A laser light would be better as a trigger than a pad. Pads require a certain amount of weight to work.

    You should know. A trigger on the ground should respond to a mouse weight of 7 grams or 0.25 oz. You have also shown other traps that are very insensitive to triggering

    Not a surprise. Most things I've bought from China has been trash. Aquarium accessories, construction equipment, art and painting tools. Heck, even the tea I bought which was supposed to be Lapsang Souchong, turned out to be some mundane crap that tasted like semi-sweet gravel. Currently the longest lasting product we have from China is the coronavirus, assuming the lab-leak theory is true of course. Anyway, only watched two of your videos so far, but I already know I have to subscribe.

    I brought a plastic live catch trap from Walmart, it worked as good as the one in this video; which isn't saying much. In fact the mouse chewed a hole through the plastic and got out. I tried it numerous times and they just eat the bait.

    I'm sure some products coming out of china are of decent quality, but the vast majority these days are just bad knockoffs of other existing products. I'm sure the design for this trap is stolen from some other manufacturer who actually puts some care into producing a well made product that works. you really have to be super careful with what you purchase these days...

    What if you took one of those bucket traps where they fall in the bucket. Say you cut the bottom out of the bucket and placed it over a fairly deep bore hole. You'd have a trap you didn't have to clean for some time and cleaning would just be filling in the dirt over the top. Down in the hole would be the mouse thunder dome I suppose.

    Glue washers to the trigger pad so the mouses weight is enough to release the trigger mechanism... it appears the weight required is more in rat territory
