It looks capable, but squirels a clever little git when it comes to traps, chuck it in some woodland and see what happens.

Your trap looks well, good job ;)

You need to address the issue of not harming your trapped quarry. Legally, So all spikes internally will need removing (cant make it out too well but the door has prongs bent inwards). It also needs de-burring. (all sharp edges removing).

You could also do with replacing the cable ties holding it togeather, with something stronger and more appropriate, myself or john b can help you out there. These can be chewed.

Hope you put it to use for more than just squirrels :thumbs:
