The cinch gopher trap makes easy gopher trapping possible. There is no other trap on the market as effective! Just open the tunnel, slide the trap in, and leave the tunnel open.
Be sure to buy original Cinch traps made in the USA, a superior product with the added benefit of supporting our domestic economy.
Not only are Cinch gopher traps the easiest to trap with, they are the most humane trap.
I completely agree with Tim's review. These are the best gopher traps, and the only ones with which I have successfully trapped gophers. And they work within a day, and sometimes much quicker. Just make sure when you set the trap that the small eyelet wires will be free to rotate when the trap is sprung. Otherwise the trap won't spring all the way and the gopher will still be free. But in this case you simply open up the gopher's hole again and reset the trap. Easy!Review by Anja (on 3/2/15)
These traps are really the only effective way to catch gophers. I bought two, and have trapped 8 gophers since fall. I would trap more, but there are none. As soon as you see a fresh open hole, widen it a bit and slide the trap in, but not too far. Leave the hole open and go away. It will do its thing. The only thing to make sure of is when you set the trap, turn the bent over eyes on the trigger wires up so they don't bind up. Otherwise the gopher may push dirt in and set off the trigger, but the trap won't release. Also set it with a hair trigger. Just enough to hold the wires down. I give them 5 stars. The only thing better is a gopher catching cat. And they don't always catch the ones you want. :)Review by Tim (on 2/9/14)
