TODAY’S PATENT – MOUSE TRAP
The MOUSE TRAP was invented by Paul F. Cook (Champaign, IL) on the 2nd of June, 2020, bearing patent number US10667508B1.
The current invention relates to vermin traps and particularly this invention is upon mouse trap having swing strikers. Mousetraps are widely used to catch and kill mice. But here the invention was named “Mouse Trap” which is used to include all such spring-loaded animal traps, regardless of their size, and thereby to include all small vermin. The mouse trap is armed at first by placing attractant or any food on the trigger serving as bait. The striker is then moved 180 degrees against the force of the spring and held in place with the hand. The trigger is then raised slightly and the latch is placed over the striker to engage the trigger. The striker is then released. The spring forces the striker upwardly which, in turn, forces the latch upwardly against the slightly raised trigger to hold it in place. When the trigger is depressed by the mouse, the latch disengages, and the striker swings violently onto the mouse. Thereby, this mouse trap with the trigger is more likely to be depressed when a mouse attempts to eat the bait and according to this one proves to be a more improved version of mouse trap.
