I have caught 9 so far with the 1030. Yes occasionally a "big one" sneaks out. But they always come back for more, especially if food is sparse. I find the one-door down method is best. Bait the side with the closed door, the squirrel has to hop over the bait-tray and accidentally sets off the trap. Even the big guys cant get out fast enough.

Try using sunflower seeds. They seem to be addicted to them. You can buy them shelled or unshelled at the grocery store for cheap $$. Just a serving spoonful will get you moving.

The 1040 has about 3 extra inches on each end. Those 3 extra inches prevent the squirrel from darting out, definitely should have read this website before I bought a trap. But to say the 1030 is the wrong tool, is a little harsh. It's just not the BEST tool.

You can trim the branches closest to your house, as long as its over your property.
