Review RateNew design not working
I couldn’t figure out why I now can’t catch any rats. All the bait is gone on multiple traps but no victims. After looking over the traps and packaging it became very apparent. The new design changes and now made in China. They now do not work. Wow hope Victor figured this one out. The previous design had me so successful that the neighborhood called me the Rat Guy. Last spring out of 19 traps I only had two misfired traps with 19 rats killed. Rats had no chance. Previous spring very similar results. Currently however, the 5 new traps have been reloaded 2-3 more times each without any kills. If a company is going to change a design, then test it to verify if it still works. I realize that cost considerations in manufacturing is needed, but not at the expense of the consumer. VICTOR they don’t work like the old design. Now I have a bunch of traps that will be put into the trash without RATS!Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratedissapointed with change in design
Dear Victor, The rats in my shed would like to thank you very much for the new bait pedal switch design on the new traps made in China. It allows them to freely eat the bait with no fear of being snapped. The old traps marked 'Made in USA" were very scary for the rats and typically meant a short life. The new traps marked "Made in China" will ensure the rats eat well and live to a great old age. Please please fix the pedal mechanism!...Your old traps worked great...why change it?Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. The time taken to share this feedback with us is appreciated and the information has been passed along to our Product Managers. For the best results, we recommend using a toothpick amount of peanut butter and placing the trap along the wall of the shed.

Review RateManufacturing not up to snuff! This trap is useless.
I had the same problem.. I bought two individual traps from Rona today. The first one I opened was good ol' reliable & set quickly. The next package looked like the bait holder was smaller, but more importantly upside down. Upon closer inspection I can see it is on correctly, but the top of the bait holder is not bent in, so that the hold down bar has nothing to hold it. I thought it must be a new-fangled trap, so came to the website to find out how to set it. Imagine my dismay to find out others have the same problem; and yes the package says made in china. I'll pay more if that's what it takes to keep manufacturing in North America, where proper quality control can be on top of production. This is ridiculous, I am extremely disappointed. Guess I will have to find a new go-to trap, I can't inspect every trap thru a wrapper to make sure it is made correctly!Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateVictor rat trap changed design to be the same as Tomcat rat trap? Go figure!
We bought a 2 pack trap at Homedepot. We caught a rat the first night. I was totally grossed out and threw the rat along with the trap. The other trap caught another rat, this time we didn't throw out the trap, realizing there's more than one. Anyway, we figured that we need to buy more traps. We went to the same Home Depot, got the same trap. However, when we got home, we found out that although it is the same brand and everything the trap changed. The bait holder became squarish, making it difficult to hold the bait, the lever holder doesn't catch as well that I hurt myself setting it. We returned it and tried to look for the old one. We noticed that the "new" Victor rat is now made in China instead of USA, also it's mechanism is exactly like the Tomcat. Why would you change something that works is beyond me.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateEffective and unfailingly lethal
We grow Cherokee Purple tomatoes in our backyard. One morning our ripe fruit was ruined. Six traps were set as a perimeter. Three days later the rats were ruined. Baited with hard cheddar or Swiss cheese impaled on the metal tongue, then a very thin smear of peanut butter over the cheese. Lick, chew, die.
Ordered me some Victor rat traps(SNAP traps) the otha week. Luvem. Nothin betta then working round me shop when its quiet and hearin a SNAP. Puts a big smile on me face every time. Thank u Victor traps for helpin me kill those dirty rats
Review RateEat the bait right out of the traps
The Rats keep licking the peanut butter off the traps. They are outside my window and I watch them lick the bait right off......very frustrating ! I'll try the slim Jim trick.....hopefully that will do it or I wasted $25 on traps!Response From Victor®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
We recommend using only a small amount of peanut butter when baiting this trap. Often, a pea sized amount is all that is needed. This prevents the rats from being able to quickly grab the bait and run without setting off the trap.

Wow what a great product! I thought I needed a professional to get rid of my rat problem, but a few Victor rat traps get the job done. I don't know about other Victor products as the classic rat trap is my 1st purchase, but man does it work well! Just bait it with some peanut butter and these rodents don't stand a chance against the power of the kill bar. 10/10 product, thank you guys for providing us with such a cheap and effective way to make our lives better!
Review RateVictor - faster, more sensitive and deadly to RatsTomcat or GoCat is the only brand stocked at my local Lowes and Home Depot so I bought a dozen Pedal Traps and half dozen with the "Kill Bar". The Victor traps work and the others are just feeding mechanisms for the rats. That Kill Bar does not mess around...wish more retailers stocked it because it does work.
