Ratcatcher-cap / mouse trap


"Only one direction opend"

Ratcatcher-cap is designed to open in one direction only.
And this Ratcatcher-cap is made to be inserted in any waste cans like a lid.
Several grooves are cut on one surface, so it is easily bent in one direction while
it never bends in the other direction.
A rat smelling cheese goes into the Ratcatcher-cap easily but there's no way out.
Anyone can use the mousetrap with ease and safely.
