Debra from Aptos, California writes,

How do I reset the Talpirid mole trap?

I set the mole trap, and the large yellow part came up indicating a capture. When I removed the trap, there was no mole, but the jaws were closed together. I am trying to re set it but cannot figure out how. I put in into the ground above another mole tunnel, and step on it to set, but that does not work. I originally set it by pressing the end up against a concrete wall. When I do that now, I can get the jaws to open but I cannot find a way to keep them open. There appears to be a latch but I cannot get anything to work.


Please take a look at this video and see if this helps you to set the trap. If it does not, please give us a call so we can further assist you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-R9iDDVl5g
