Looks good, but as mentioned earlier, change those cable ties to 1.5mm wire, or they will be chewed !

And take off those spikes from the drop door.

best of luck,

the trap has now been modifed and is sprung and completely galvanised, the trigger plate is conected to the door via a thick wire (2mm) which is supported halfway, so when something hits the plate the wire is pulled from under the door and it slams shut. bingo, i ha\ve had a rat in it so it works but i havent seen the squirrel it was designed for in ages
