Works great for some animals. What are you trying to catch?

Since they're smaller and cost less to make, they are more expensive, which figures!

You have to re-coop the tooling costs, which can be high, when figured over the total parts run.


Every kid needs a Dog and a Curmudgeon.

Remember Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor.

Beware! Jill Pudlewski, Ron Oates and Keven Begesse are liars and thiefs!

I don't currently have 1 specific critter in mind, rather I am just planning ahead for future situations. Thanks

At 2 1/2", the little RBG's are great fun for brown rats (R. norvegicus).

I have a dozen, they have their place just like the small RBG.

I have 1 of those 2.5" round ones & am still trying to find a good way to stabilize it

I replace the rivet opposite of the spring with a nut and bolt.
I add a brass washer and a wing nut and use plumber's strapping to attach/stabilize them.
