How does it work? Do you have a larger picture?
Tech Support says
If you look to the right of the picture, you’ll note the door is “down”. But it can move freely since its on a hinge. And it can only be pushed in and “up” when outside the trap. So as muskrats approach the trap, they’ll push the door up which will allow them to enter and the door will close behind them as they move through the trap.
On the left side of the picture you’ll see a person’s hand is holding the door “up” to show how it moves.
Now once set in a muskrat runway, both doors will actually be closed by default. But as a muskrat enters from one side, the door will close behind them and they’ll be trapped since they cannot push the door open again.
