Deadset Mole Trap

Trapping moles has never been easier, thanks to the sleek, ergonomically designed Deadset® Mole Trap.

The Deadset® features a comfortable, easy grasp handle and an oversized activator plate that can be pushed into the tunnel by hand or foot.

When underground movement is detected, the spears are thrust into the ground, quickly killing the mole. A mole trap that works this efficiently and effectively takes trapping moles to an entirely new level.

Effective tips to help win the war on moles

Before setting the trap, water the lawn to bring the mole's food source (earthworms and bugs) up near the ground surface. The next step is to locate active tunnels. Flatten tunnels by walking on them and then wait a day. If the tunnel rises up, it's active. This is where the trap should be placed.

When setting a plunge-style mole trap, make sure the spears can move freely through the ground when the trap is triggered. Test the Deadset® by pulling up on the handle to set the trap and then pushing down on the trap release lever located on the side of the trap. This will drive the spears into the ground. Raise and lower the trap until the spears are unobstructed by roots or rocks. Always use the release lever to trip the trap before moving it to another location.

Waste of money and time. By Betty

Bought the Deadset Mole Trap for $24.99. Expensive for me as only SS Retirement only income. Waste of money. The trap will not go off. Actually, almost impossible to get to go off just trying to make it work. Watched the video to learn how to use it. Waste of time if the trap just does not work. How do I get a refund?

Don't waste your money! By ERIC

Don't waste your money on these traps. I bought two, set them only 3 times and now one of them will not latch at all. They need to go back and re-engineer the latch mechanism.

Response From Victor®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

To set the trap successfully, the spring must be in the proper position. Please locate the tab at the bottom of the spring and make sure that the spring is on the outside of the metal tab.

Great product By Brasshog

I purchased one of your traps today and set it in an active tunnel when I got home. I want it my house five minutes and looked out our front window and saw it was sprung. I went outside and checked under the trap and there was a dead mole! Five minutes!! Great product!

Trap trip mechanism is too stiff By Bill

Trigger mechanism is too stiff for mole to trip. I've had this trap for two years and have not caught a mole. When using a screwdriver to trip the trap I have to apply considerable pressure to get it to release. More pressure I think that a mole can provide.

Disappointed By Moleman

Moleman--09/01/2017--I bought the trap at Ace Hardware hoping to catch mole , but after trying multi time was not able to get plate to work with catch. I will most likely never purchase again, you needed to go back and redesign the catch to hold plate. I should had never had this much trouble, since your box said incredibly east to set.

Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.  

When setting this trap, make sure the spring is in the proper position. While holding the trap with the release lever on the right, you will see a small vertical tab sticking up from the center of the horizontal plate.  If the spring is behind this tab, the trap will not set.

Dollar Store Quality By markm

These are not tested before they ship. only 1 of 3 actually stay locked. I mean, this is the purpose of the devise! The locking mechanism needs to be thrown away and a new design. Reliability is poor. Thought I was buying a reputable product, but feels like something from the dollar store.

Ugh By Vick

Must have smart moles. Have three traps set and moved to new hills everyday and haven't got one yet after at least weeks!!

Response From Victor®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Vick,

Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. For best results, we recommend placing the traps along an active mole run. To determine which runs are active, we recommend poking several small holes along each tunnel. Check back in 24-48 hours to see if any of the holes have been repaired. If so, this tunnel has recently been in use and would be a good location for a trap.

We apologize for this experience and hope this information is of help. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 for additional assistance.

Straight crap!! By Bill

Purchased 6....NOT one would latch. Their QA process is obviously worthless. Doubt they are American made...if so, drown yourself, now! I expect crap like this from the China or Mexico...

Moles

Moles are helpful in that they remove damaging insects and grubs from lawns and gardens. Unfortunately, however, their burrowing habits can destroy grass, gardens and flower beds and tear up tree roots.
