Note the firm and sensitive settings on the yellow trip pedal. When firm is selected, the trap will be easier to set but slightly more difficult to trip. On sensitive, the trap will be more difficult to set but slightly easier to trip. For the best accuracy and outcome, we recommend setting the trap somewhere between these two settings. Once a rodent triggers the oversized pedal, the trap immediately snaps closed to kill the mouse on contact. Simply lift the kill bar to dispose of the mouse, and reuse the trap. Or, dispose of the entire trap for quick, clean removal. It’s your decision.
The Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Traps can be used anywhere in the home. Place traps several feet apart along any wall where you’ve seen or suspect rodent activity. Easy Set traps don’t use chemicals or poisons, so they’re ideal for use around children and pets—but please use caution.
The Easy Set® is easy to set and use. Here’s how:
Remove the clip securing the kill bar.
Move the arm bar so it hangs over the back of the trap.
Bait the trap by adding peanut butter or other high-protein food, like chocolate or hazelnut spread on the yellow pedal. This trap doesn’t require bait, but using it will increase success.
Pull back on the kill bar and hold it securely with your thumb.
Move the arm bar over the kill bar and latch the end under the yellow pedal. Please take note to the Firm and Sensitive setting. The trap will be easier to set on the firm side, but not trip as easily. The trap will be more difficult to set on the sensitive side but will trip very easily.
Place the trap with the yellow pedal end flush against the wall where signs of rodent activity exist.
Once the mouse has been trapped, the body can be disposed of by lifting the kill bar, and reset or thrown away.

I put a small amount of peanut butter on the yellow part of the trap, set it, and placed the bait area against the wall and the trap perpendicular to the wall, and the next morning, a mouse! We have two little dogs so placement was critical (they love peanut butter) and I placed them out of reach of them. I guessed the little mouse was hiding in the pantry where our water heater was behind so I set two traps, one on each side of the door exiting to the kitchen. I set one trap by the garbage can and one on top of our kitchen hutch where the doggie treats rest (all had mouse poop signs). Heh heh it's days were numbered (to one!) One point, be aware these traps have two settings, firm and sensitive, sensitive is a monster to handle but to me was worth the extra hassle- just be careful! Good luck.

I have been using these professionally since they came out. The secret with trapping is with placement....placement of the bait and placement of the trap. You should only apply a small amount of fresh peanut butter on the trigger so the mice have to engage the trap to get it, and you should always place the traps perpendicular to the wall so that the trigger is against the wall. You can also place and object over the trap similar to a lean to to enhance the effectiveness of the trap. I use these all the time and would recommend them highly to pros and homeowners alike. D.

Individuals in a rodent population search for different types of food. For mice, anything high in protein like peanut butter, chocolate or hazelnut spread is a great option. Also, nesting materials like dental floss, cotton or string are also great options. Try to use whatever bait or nesting material the rodents are currently feeding on or using to build nests.
Do I have to bait the trap?
