  • CINCH Traps are quality crafted out of durable and long lasting galvanized steel making it simple to trap and kill gophers the first time.
  • There is no way a gopher will be able to steal this trap, it is designed to have one end wider than the hole so the gopher cannot pull it down the tunnel.

    These traps changed my life!

    I had been obsessing about the gophers in my yard. I live out in the country and these things slowly worked or quickly worked their way through my yard, getting into my flower garden, destroying my two cherry trees. and making a large mess.

    I tried every trap and gadget available and every once and awhile I might have one be caught in a trap but these Cinch traps worked amazingly well!
    I kept catching them in all their various locations….it is really unbelievable! I highly recommend these traps.

    I am going to purchase a mole trap next!

    Thanks so much

    I have tried every trick in the book, my yard looked like swiss cheese, I purchased the cinch trap and at first had no luck, but once I fine tuned the set up, I caught 8 yes that was eight gophers in 4 days and have not seen a new one in 3 weeks. This is the best ever… Thank You cinch.

    Amazing product. The Cinch Trap arrived in the mail yesterday, we set it last night and this morning, we found the trap with the gopher dead in it. It took less than 24 hours to get the gopher that we have been battling for almost two years. The trap is simple and easy to set and VERY effective. Thanks for a great product.

    Awesome product. The trap arrived on a Monday evening, and by Tuesday morning we had caught the gopher that had been destroying our garden. I gave the trap to my dad a couple days ago since he has had a problem with gophers recently and I purchased another today. This is an amazing device. We have been plagued by gophers and have tried nearly everything for the last couple of years. If you have a gopher problem, this trap will take care of them

    I received my cinch traps and noticed its power. I instantly got excited to see this trap in action. Placed the trap into the tunnel and killed that gopher…. Evil laugh. What a great product and LOVE that we still make products here in the USA. You got a good thing going here. Thanks!

    I’ve cleared all the gophers (30) out of my one acre property with four cinch traps in the past year. These things work really well, and are the easiest to set of all the trap types IMO. With a narrow digging tool, it is easy to open up the tunnel with minimal digging and set the trap. All other trap designes required some or all of the following (more work) but not Cinch Traps:
    1) Digging a big hole.
    2) Covering the hole to keep out light
    3) Lifting the cover to check the trap
    4) Staking the trap(s) so they don’t get dragged away
    5) Using two traps per hole (one in each direction)

    Tip: At first they worked every time I set them, but after a while I was finding them sprung, but empty, about 30% of the time. I sprayed the jaws and trigger with WD-40, and they went immediately back to working every time (sticky trigger? The smell of rust?).

    Don’t hesitate to buy this product! Wow! I tried everything else to get rid of the gophers in my yard–smoke bombs, flooding them out, exhaust hose, etc. Nothing worked or didn’t seem to work. Finally ordered the cinch traps and within 2 hours of setting them in the holes, I got my first gopher. Over the course of 2 days, I caught 4 gophers total. Works like a charm! I was going to get the medium size but chose the small and it was perfect. The other selling feature for me was the fact that this product is made in the USA. Better yet, it’s made in Oregon where I live.

    Cannot believe how effective these traps are. Caught all the gophers on my property in just a few days. More gophers caught with these traps then any other trap I have used, combined. Great Product!!!

    Rating I can’t say you’ll never see another goehpr, but I definitely noticed much less visible activity about a week after installing. It’s been about a month now, and activity is still only sporatic. The goehpr family doesn’t seem to particularly like hanging around with this product in place. I ignored the coverage per square feet and significantly overlapped the area by placing the Mole Gopher Chasers closer together. Seems to have worked for me.

    I am a part time mole and gopher trapper. These traps are ideal because they’re strong, quick, and reliable. They are also great because many of my customers do not like to see the dead animal. Every cinch trap I have set have always had a clean kill. They are very effective and I would highly recommend them to a professional, or a homeowner.

    Hello from mid-west Minnesota. We purchased these traps for a gopher who had repeatedly buried both foot traps and ring traps. He also buried these cinch traps several times, but I kept trying, and sure enough I caught him last night. I had purchased the medium sized traps, and found that this gopher was very large, and would have been more easily caught with the large size. Soon I will order the large size for any more gopher problems we have, and you can never have too many traps, especially when they are as effective as Cinch!!
