The original wood-based wire snap trap, the Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap, 12 Pack, provides instant rodent control and is safe for household use. For effective rat control, each rat trap comes pre-baited with a large, scented plastic ‘swiss cheese’ trip pedal. The large pedal of this rat trap is easily activated – both by rodent interest in food and through accidental contact as rats scamper across the floor – to ensure maximum trapping.
Once a rodent triggers the pedal, the rat trap immediately springs closed to eliminate the pest on contact. The rat trap can then be easily disposed of for quick and clean removal. These traps require no chemicals or poisons, so they are an ideal rat control device for use around food, water, children and pets.
With superior quality and effectiveness, the Victor® rat trap has become the #1 selling trap in the world - with over 1 billion sold. Also, Victor® rat traps are the professionals’ trap of choice.
Victor® Easy Set® Rat Traps are the only traps constructed from environmentally responsible, Forest Stewardship Council certified wood. Made in the USA!
The 12 pack of disposable rat traps is safe for use around food, water, children and pets. Victor® Easy Set® Rat Traps are perfect for use anywhere in the home. These rat traps should be placed where rodents travel, such as along walls at 2 to 3 foot intervals.

Placed four traps in our laundry room along a wall as instructed. First night, no action, just "evidence" that the traps had been visited. Second evening, BAM, killed three mice in less than six hours. I think the instructions on the package should have been a bit more detailed. I checked the website to make sure I was setting things up correctly.
Fake Cheese Real RatsNovember 21, 2010
Why I can no longer find this reliable pre-baited RAT trap at my local retailer is beyond me. Had I put a notch in it everytime I had a kill, there would be a scalloped edge clear around the trap.
My wife finally told me to toss it in the trash because it was so gross; bloodstained and all... Sorry, that's reality when a trap works well!
Now it's up to Victor's sales reps to make it readily available in the So Calif area.

I just wish I could attach the photo of the two RATS I got in one trap, at the same time. it looks like they had a race for the cheese and it was a tie! this was a rusty old victor rat trap that had caught many rats in it's day.
Best Trap Of AllMay 27, 2010
I live on a canyon with several fruit trees and get rats all the time. I have tried several traps and the Victor Professional is the best BY FAR! Some types do not even seem to work at all, but this one works every time. I also try to re-use them as much as possible. I have some that are so rusty that I wonder how they work . . . but the do! These traps are worth having!
The BIG pictureOctober 18, 2011
How about a LARGE detailed drawing on your website of how the trap should be set. "Engage locking bar on curved portion of bait pedal" doesn't clarify anything, nor does the 45 degree instructions. A picture or drawing would be so helpful.

I purchased a few of the Victor Professional rat trraps and the rats are getting in these traps and walking away. These traps do a good job on mice and smaller rats but the large ones are escaping. I wish Victor would put stronger springs on their traps. It would be a great improvement on these otherwise excellent traps.

Worst Design Ever!April 23, 2012
These traps with the plastic paddle are absolute junk. Stick with the conventional metal latch. I made the mistake of buying a 4 pack of these. One wouldn't latch at all. Another took about 10 minutes before it finally held, although I don't trust it to stay armed. The locking arm slides off the plastic latch without locking in place. Metal on metal holds, this metal on plastic design is POOR!

These things are nearly impossible to set. They snap before or during placement. I bought a couple dozen. After an endless period of attempts I finally have 6 set. I'm throwing the rest away. Fingers are too sore and too frustrating to continue.

I've been using Victor mousetraps since I was probably 8. My wife picked these up and I spent 30 minutes setting exactly zero of these. I got the small ones and Easy Set is a big fat lie as you cannot set one even once. Whomever at Victor decided to build a better moustrap is a moron. I'm sticking to the OG ones from now on.

Individuals in a rodent population search for different types of food. For rats, anything like peanut butter, dry dog food, nuts, fruit or bacon is a great option. Try to use whatever bait the rodents are currently feeding on, but feel free to provide alternative choices as well.
What do the F and S stand for on the trap?
The F and the S located on the bait pedal of the trap stand for firm and sensitive. The trap can either be set with a firm setting or sensitive setting.
