What separates Tru-Catch Traps from other live traps?

Everyone always say they have the better trap but one that is constructed of heavy gauge materials will last a lot longer with fewer troubles. I would recommend one though that has a door on both ends.

Alive or dead ? You have to remember that a shrew is small so either get a trap specific for that size of an animal. You could use one sized for a squirrel and it wouldn't get out but I think the proper bait would be the most important. I believe one of their favorite foods being earth worms.

How can I avoid catching my neighbours cat?

Bait your trap with something sweet. Wheat bread with peanut butter spread on it is always a sure attractant, oil of anise; sweet corn and grape jelly are also suggested for nuisance animals. The majority of domestic animals are not attracted to this type of bait. If you do catch your neighbour's dog or cat you have several options:

My Krups xp7225 suddenly stopped grinding coffee beans. The grinder rotates but sounds empty, even though there are beans in the top container part. The beans do not go down. Any ideas short of sending...

xp7225, the grinder in possibly plugged at the discharge,
you may have to remove the grinder to get it cleared-when doing so check the O-rings on the top plunger.

to disassemble start by removing the front trim. this is TRICKY, pull out a bit at the bottom and slide up at the same time it should release and you can access the shrews and remove the top, OYA remove the water tank and bean bin!
then remove shrews on top including under the the grate and the piston has a spring a the discharge shoot gently move it wile removing the 2 shrews holding the grinder in place, you may be able to gently lift the grinder up. wires are a bit long, place a rag or paper towel at bottom of pocket to prevent anything like shrews from falling though and you can remove the motor from the grinder by removing the shrews under it with a stubby shrew driver. BUT if the wires will not pull out enough..THEN you have to remove the sides and back.. remove by taking out the screws at the front and top leave the bottom and front in place..slide the back and sides together away from the back.....
open the cover over the wires MARK and record all wire positions unplug the the wire to to the grinder follow wires to find them.....if you have to untangle by removing the board USE CAUTION the connections are FRAGILE...up the spade connections first then lift the top of plastic and pull the board out and away!!! BE SURE TO NOTE WIRES there is ON wire diagram available !!!!
reverse to put things back together... GOOD LUCK

Clogged bathroom sink

Try removing the **** Trap under the sink, there are two nuts one on each side. put a pan under the sink to catch the waste water in the trap first. ext loosen the nuts with a pair of channel locks or a pipe wrench turn the nuts counter clock wise direction till the nuts are loose slide the trap down and empty the contents of the trap into the bucket. Use rubber gloves so you don't get sick from germs. If the **** trap is plugged use a coat hanger to push threw the trap to get whatever is plugging it out. Rinse in a different sink, If it has the rubber gaskets I would recommend replacing the gaskets. Install in reverse. Do not over tighten the nuts or you will have to replace the parts. the trap looks like 2 opposing J .

Lost absorber pad

You may be able to buy them from Canon. But you may be able to rescue the one down the drain if you go under the sink and remove the "S" or "P" trap. Have a pail under the trap to catch any water and debris. Dump the trap into the pail and see if you absorber pad is there. Best of luck!

Our dryer lint trap won't go down all the way and is catching our clothes -- ruining spaghettis straps, bras, etc., twisting everything and catching our clothes on the corner of the trap.

It may be backwards. But the first thing I would look for is if there is lint caught in the shute keeping it from going down all the way. If it is a newer model there is a lint screen sensor that may have come unattached and keeping the lint screen from going down all the way. Good luck.
