Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap - 12 Pack

The original wood-based wire snap trap, the Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap, 12 Pack, provides instant rodent control. 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.

#1 Selling Rat Trap in the World

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.

Made in the USA

Victor® Easy Set® Rat Traps are the only traps constructed from environmentally responsible, Forest Stewardship Council certified wood. Made in the USA!

Quick, Effective, Clean

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 safe to use around food, water, children and pets when used as directed. 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.


Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap is Easy to Use. Here’s How:

  1. Release the arm bar from the staple.
  2. Move the arm bar to the back of the trap so it hangs over the back of the trap.
  3. Apply a small amount of peanut butter, bacon, dry pet food or nuts to the yellow pedal on the trap as shown. Be sure to use a Q-tip, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.
  4. Pull the kill bar back and hold in place with your thumb.
  5. Take the arm bar over the kill bar and latch the end of the arm bar under the yellow pedal. Please take note of the Firm and Sensitive setting. The trap will be easier to set on the firm side, but not trip as easy. The trap will be more difficult to set on the sensitive side and trip very easily.
  6. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The end of the trap where the yellow pedal is baited should be placed flush against the wall.
  7. After the rat is caught, properly dispose of the dead rodent. The trap can either be discarded or reused.

Junk plastic lever, one time use. By Array1

Garbage, one time use, piece of junk. Victor used to make great products, but this plastic lever is junk. Don't waste your money on this one time use trap. Victor should go back to the metal lever instead of scamming people.

These Suck! By Sucker1

The old ones with the metal attachment worked great. These new ones with the yellow plastic DO NOT WORK. the arm slips off. I bought two of the darn things and neither one of them work.

Response From Victor®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for the experience and would be happy to assist. This trap has both a sensitive and a firm setting. We recommend putting the trap in place on the floor before setting it. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for further assistance.

Super Sensitive By Kristen
This is the second round of a dozen traps. The desert heat trashes them over 6 months...however, they are the easiest to trap with. I've never even baited them. Never! Just place on known rat areas and they work fine without the mess. I had tried other brands, and poison...didn't work.
I've yet to kill more than one Alpha they're a little tough to outsmart.

Work great By
Put three traps out. Checked back next day. Three huge dead rats. These traps were super easy to set. Took me seconds to set each one. Also, I put some peanut butter bait on the plastic pedal.

Not Strong Enough! By
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.

The BIG picture By
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.

Works great By
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 Rats By
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.

Q.What is the size of this trap?

This trap measures approximately 3.25" x 7".

Q.How large a rat can this trap kill? Is it still effective on rats as large as 12 inches long?

Our traps are designed to be effective for all varieties of rats.

Q.Why do you call it easy set? Is it easier than your standard wood rat trap? I have killed 10 rats so far using the original, but it is very firm to set.

The Easy Set® traps have the option to have a Firm or Sensitive setting. When the trap is set to Firm, it will be easier to set, but will take more effort to trigger. When the trap is set to Sensitive, it can be a little trickier to set, but will take less effort to trigger.
