Positive Reviews:

Great trap, worth the money.

This trap works as advertised. I have trapped five skunks so far. There was an empty trap a time or two but trapping is never 100%. The only time the skunk sprayed was when my wife got impatient for the skunk to leave the trap and she actually kicked it to scare the animal out. The result was what you would expect. All other times there was no spray or smell.
I take the trap 8 miles away and leave it hidden under a bush. As the instructions say, open the spring-loaded escape door and walk away. The skunk will come out when he feels like it.
Once in a while you need to clean the internal sensors, but a q-tip easily does the trick. I have only had to do this once so far.

Great idea, poorly executed

The general idea of this trap is a good one. A long tube where a skunk can't lift its tail to spray, or if it least it wont be on you (unless your at either end of it). That is more or less the end of the "good" part. The bad... After being set off on several different occasions, the metal piece that holds the door open while set also keeps the door from closing all the way when set off. You can cut off the hard corner on the metal tab to help remedy this situation. I went through 3 sets of batteries (4 each time by the way) inside of a month. The trap was only set off 6-8 times, each time the door was only half shut. I had the trap set inside of a closed barn, I am unsure how well the battery pack will hold up to rain. All in all, it's a cheap trap that is "cheaply" made. I went back to cage traps. After catching nothing in this over a month, I set a wire cage trap next to it and caught 2 skunks in the next week using the same bait. I'm done with this thing, it's unreliable at best. Get a cheap plastic trashcan and lay on its side, set a cage trap inside that and you'll have 10 times the trap that will last longer, not use any batteries, and has many more uses with or without the can.

High expectations shattered

Great concept except: Door release mechanism would not hold the door would release the door with the slightest shaking, like setting this trap on the ground. Next, when I would test the door release, the door would only close half way or less due to this same mechanism catching on the edge of the trap.
I spent 2 hours in the shop testing and trying this latch, hoping to find the solution to the mis-release and door catching problem and finally returned it to the store.
Bought a new "old fashioned" trap and for the first week, caught 2 varmints a day in the mechanical trap.
