Catch skunks humanely without getting sprayed. The Spray-Proof Skunk Trap™ is made of 6" PVC pipe. Its small size prevents skunks from lifting their tails to spray and also prevents scratching and biting. It is opaque, so your catch is invisible to anything passing by. This trap is simple to use for homeowners as well as animal control specialists. Spring-loaded to prevent environment-related misfires. It is the safest trap available for skunks, squirrels, cats, rabbits, opossums and other similarly sized animals.

Save your money!
How some people say this design is brilliant..I do not know! And the one review that says he got a lemon..NOPE it is poor design. Instead of having the rod pull back, it makes the rod go forward towards the door, which makes it even harder for the pedal to work. Instead of making an L shaped wire to set the trap..this thing has a bolt!???? I have put wax on the trap, grease, etc. There was a time when companies tested their item. Now, they don't care, as long as they get your money. This genius could not even weld a couple of pieces of metal to the sides of the trap to keep it from rolling over. We shouldn't have to alter the trap to make it work! I thought that was your job! AND the bolt is not even centered on the hole that trips the trap..making even more friction! There is overpriced and then there is this trap!
Trap needed counter-weight of 1# on bait trap to work.
Brilliant concept, but I think we got a lemon of a trap. The bait-pan need more than a pound of force to trip the door closed, and our skunk was not that heavy. Two nights the skunk took the bait (licked the peanut butter from off the bait pan) and departed the trap without tripping it. The third night I put a flat rock heaped with peanut butter (combined weight 1 pound!) on the bait trap, and we caught the skunk that night. QC responded quickly to my first questions, then next when I said we had a lemon-of-a-trip offered to replace it, but we had already solved the problem with the rock-counterweight. So I can honestly recommend this trap. I just wish they had given us more detailed instructions about what was required to get it to work.
I had doubts on the trap, but first time I used it I caught a big skunk that decided to live under a barn foundation. I used peanut butter as bait smeared on the trip plate.
it works great but like previous review there is no way to hold door open to release skunks so I had to drill holes in frame work to slide pin thru to hold open and springs get knocked off from time to time.
Simple but effective design and functionality. Construction is durable, weather-resistant, and reliable. Well worth the price. The service from QC Supply was outstanding.
This is the same type of trap used by vector control for trapping skunks, which is why I went with it. It is simple and easy to use. I just bait it with dry cat food and have caught the skunks within a couple of nights. No risk of getting sprayed, and easy to submerse in water for skunk 'disposal'.
Needs more work.
The trap works, BUT, you'll need to put something on both sides to keep it from rolling over! Also, it needs something to hold it open when 'removing' the skunk.
