- Release the Arm Bar - Remove the staple and hang the arm over the back of the trap.
- Bait the Trap - While the trap is pre-baited with a scent, apply bait on the plastic pedal for best results. Use a high-protein bait such as peanut butter or hazelnut spread.
- Set the Trap - Pull back the kill bar and hold it securely with your thumb. Place the arm bar over the kill bar and secure it under the plastic pedal. 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, but trip very easily.
- Place the Trap - Locate an area with high rodent activity or place the trap along the wall. The trap should be perpendicular to the wall with the yellow trigger plate flush against the baseboard.

The plastic triggers are the best idea ever! If you know how to tune them a little, you will never miss your target. They are very fast and hit with thunder!! I’ve use these for years and have hundreds of them! Our wildlife company only buys victor and not those copy cat traps. I’ve been in business for over 30 years, and NOTHING beat victor rat traps with the plastic triggers!! Thank you for the best trap on the market!! Your company have made me a lot of money over the year because of your GREAT product! Thank you Victor!!
Review RateHow to ensure humane kill?
When we set on the firm setting, the bait was eaten and the trap was not triggered, so we set to the soft setting. We caught one rat, then the next time we found the trap with just a piece of rat skin under the triggered kill bar. The rat was gone, and must have either torn or chewed itself free. This is inhumane. I don't know how we can improve the setup to ensure the trap is only triggered for a clean kill. We have this trap in a wooden tunnel so the rats can only approach from one direction, at the trigger end, as is recommended in our location to prevent other species from being caught.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! Victor® manufactures traps that will provide as humane of a kill as possible. We are sorry to hear this was not your experience. It is important to use only a small amount of bait, such as a pea size or the amount that will fit on the tip of a toothpick. This ensures the rat engages with the trap in a way that will provide a quick, humane kill.

Review Ratewaste of money. Keep it simple. Not need for the plastic insert.
These are a complete waste of money. we bought 3 of these (with wooden boxes to protect other species). After several weeks, we have caught only one mouse, and the other traps have had the cheese removed without going off. I went to reset the trap and couldn't get the metal to attach onto the bar. Basically it is a ONE use trap. Useless. When we used other traps in the box, they worked fine.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Please take note to the Firm and Sensitive settings. The trap will be easier to set on the firm side, but not trip as easily. Likewise, the trap will be more difficult to set on the sensitive side and trip very easily. We recommend setting the trap in between these two settings.

Review RateAppraisal of Product
As a pest control technician , I could confirm that these products work perfectly for catching all forms of rats; whether they are babies or adults. In California where I work at, we have issues with roof and Norwegian rats and I could say that I haven’t had any issues with them. At times it can get messy but they are a clean and effective snap trap. Well done Victor and I hope my company continues to buy from you.

Did the job it was supposed to do. In one 24 hr period we rid our boat of the intruder.
Review RateJunk plastic lever, one time use.
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.Response From Victor®Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize if our Easy Set® design was not to your liking and want to assure you that Victor® continues to manufacture rat traps that use the original metal pedal design. We strive to present a variety of traps in order to accommodate the varied preferences of our consumers.

Review RateThese Suck!
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.
Review RateSuper SensitiveThis 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.
Review RateRat trapsHad a bunch of vermin at my lake place..a few well placed traps baited with peanuts...problem solved....:)...
Review RateWork greatPut 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.

A: 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. An instruction sheet and video are available that will give detailed step-by-step instructions on how to set the Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap. The instruction sheet and video also explain how to use the firm and sensitive setting and the difference between the two.
