From the Manufacturer:
Win the war on moles without the use of chemicals or poisons. This easy-to-set plunger mole trap features all steel construction for superior strength and durability and is powder coated for long lasting, reusable application. The trap comes fully assembled and is equipped with a safety pin for secure and safe operation.
Before setting the trap, water the lawn to bring the moles food source (earthworms, grubs and insects) up near the ground surface. The next step is to locate active tunnels. Flatten tunnels by walking on them and then wait a day. If the tunnel rises up, it’s active. This is where the trap should be placed.
When setting a plunger-style mole trap, make sure the spears can move freely through the ground when the trap is triggered. Test the trap by pulling up on the handle to set the trap and then pushing down on the trap release lever located on the side of the trap. This will drive the spears into the ground. Raise and lower the trap until the spears are unobstructed by roots or rocks.

My mole trap was tripped but there’s no mole, what happened?
When you set the trap make sure the trip plate is level with the surrounding ground. You need to depress the raised tunnel roof for this to take place. When the mole travels through the tunnel it pushes the dirt up against the trip plate which then sets off the trap.
It’s sometimes hard to know exactly what is going on. You might be dealing with an immature, smaller mole or a vole, which are the size of mice and small enough to escape the mole trap spikes. Assuming you do have moles, try setting two mole traps on one tunnel which often increases success rate.
I get great results. Buying two more. nearly every time it trips i have a dead mole. Others must not be setting it correctly.Published 1 month ago by Mary Furman
I haven't caught or maimed any. Looks well designed and works as described, but my moles are apparently smarter than I or Sweeney are... not buying anymore of these.Published 4 months ago by William
Doesn't work. Get the kind that closes like scissors on the mole. I've got 10 with that type, but I tossed this thing.Published 5 months ago by Eric Lifto
It's the only thing that consistently gets rid of moles. Cruel, but effective.Published 5 months ago by trc
