How to test-fire safely
To ‘test fire’ your A24 trap, there are just a few easy steps for you to follow:
Remove the black cap from the top of the trap by unscrewing it anticlockwise.
Looking down inside the trap, use a pen or small stick to push the silver trigger to one side. Keep your fingers well clear at all times and be prepared to hear a bit of a bang. The striker inside the trap is powerful enough to kill a pest so it would be very painful if any part of you got in its way!
If there is still gas in the trap, the striker will be triggered. Test fire the trap a few times to be sure no gas is left before moving it. If it doesn’t fire, you can be sure that all the gas has been flushed out and the trap is safe to move.
