Need help with cinch trap for gophers

I'm a new cinch trap user. There was a fresh mound in my lawn yesterday. I found a narrow tunnel (about 2" wide) running at a diagonal to the mound. The tunnel was blocked about 8" or so from the mound. I had to expand the width of the tunnel to fit the cinch trap in. I couldn't get it very far - it did not feel like there was any flat party of the tunnel because it was blocked or it just's been one day and I haven't caught anything...any suggestions as to what i'm doing wrong?

I don't think that they are widely used.
