Victor® TIN CAT® Mouse Trap - 1 Trap

The Victor® TIN CAT® Mouse Trap is a low-profile metal trap that can be used inside or outside your home, apartment or business. Each trap can catch up to 30 mice at a time and is reusable. These live traps contain no poisons and do not kill the mice – they can be used around food, water, children and pets.


Simple 3-Step Method

  1. Bait – One dab of peanut butter is all you need.
  2. Place – Setting the trap is as easy as placing it down where mice have previously been spotted.
  3. Release – When the trap is full, follow your local authority’s guidelines for releasing captured animals into the wild. You can reuse your trap as many times as you need.

Large Capacity for Maximum Effectiveness

Amazingly, each TIN CAT® trap has the capacity to catch and contain up to 30 mice, reducing time spent emptying your trap and maximizing the amount of mice you can capture. Position the trap around your property anywhere mice have been spotted.

Convenient Indoor and Outdoor Design

With its slim, low-profile design, TIN CAT® mice traps can be placed inconspicuously throughout your home, especially in drop ceilings, raised floors and underneath furniture. The trap can also be used outside your home, business or apartment to keep rodent intruders from making their way inside.

No-Touch, Non-Lethal Rodent Solution

Are you grossed out by the sight of a dead mouse? Then you’ll appreciate that the TIN CAT® doesn’t require you to touch or even kill the mouse. When the secured metal trap is full, simply release your unwanted guests back into the wild, being sure to follow any local guidelines.

Prevent Escapes with a Simple Upgrade

To increase the effectiveness and convenience of the trap, use our pre-baited Victor Glue Boards (model BM309), which slide easily into the trap. The stickiness of the glue makes escape nearly impossible, but you can set them free afterward by simply applying olive oil. Note that adding the glue trap may require added attention on your part to ensure that the opening does not become blocked by mice that become stuck upon entering.

Doesn't Work By ME

I have used it for 1 week or so & have NOT caught one mouse. Tried different bates in the trap, still no results. My experience so far is not even a 1 star, should be a zero star. Will cont. to use it & see if I get better results, but tonight will put out the kill traps again, & my guess is, they will work, they always worked in the past, but I didn't want to kill them so I bought this live trap one.

Response From Victor®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Thank you for sharing this feedback. When placing these traps, it is best to do so along a wall or in an area where rodent activity has been seen. If there have not been any catches in the trap after a few days, we recommend refreshing the bait and trying a new location.

Our products are backed by a 30 day return policy and covered under a one year warranty. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.

Finally caught a very smart and determined mouse By Sara

I recently had a mouse make a mess of my basement storage room. I put out the plastic Victor "Catch & Hold" trap, but it chewed right through the plastic to eat the peanut butter! Then I tried another live trap from another brand, and it managed to eat the peanut butter without setting off the trap door. I finally bought this. No way that mouse could chew through metal. It took about a day for it to figure out how to get in there, but I finally caught it! This will be my go-to trap from now on. I love how it's sturdy and easy to clean. It was easy to open when I released the mouse. There are plenty of holes in the side for air (and for seeing if there's a mouse in there), and it's plenty large enough for the mouse to comfortably "hang out" in until release. This is a great humane trap for those of us who think mice are cute but don't want them in our homes. :)

SOOO HAPPY with this trap!! By iriswarrior1
I bought this trap a week ago, to catch a mouse I've been trying to get out of my closet for over a month. I didn't want to kill her, despite SEVERAL suggestions from friends and family to do just that. The suggested bait, peanut butter, didn't attract the mouse, neither did the substitutes I tried all week. I changed the bait to a commercial pet treat just for rats and mice that I bought at my local pet store. I just checked my trap an hour ago, and there she was! I set her free, FAR AWAY, and reset the trap, just in case she wasn't alone. Thank you for this wonderful product!

Awesome product By Happy Dad

I bought this because we have a 2 year old and a black lab running around our home and yard plus my son was just born yesterday so another soon to be exploring. I have 3 traps and they work outstandingly well in our yard and I have no trouble operating the traps there is no mess and I can release the mice easier. The dog and little one has not interest in the traps. I highly recommend these.

My tin cat By dale

I received my tin cats a couple of weeks ago. I have had some success but notice lots of droppings inside after one night and see where the trap doors don't adequately prevent escape by the mice. after careful inspection, I find the doors don't go high enough to cut off the escape route.The flap needs to curve upwards to make a tight trap.

Safe to use around our grandchildren and animals. By Farmsland Farms p

We bought several traps a few weeks ago. We were looking for traps that did not use poison, we're sturdy, easy to use, and effective. This trap has met our needs. We have caught mice in all our problem areas without risking our pet dogs or grandchildren being poisoned. The traps are very easy to use and the mice are held captive until released.

Works like a charm - a humane way to remove mice By maryjo

We live in the country, and field mice are regular problems. We tried to catch them with snap traps but they managed to evade those and they're a hazard for our pets. We tried other have-a-heart traps but the opening would shut when the floor vibrated or if they were bumped. Using these traps, we were able to catch all of the mice in only two days.

Q.During food facility inspections we constantly get reminded that any space where we can see daylight through is a potential hazard for rodent getting into the premises. how can i ensure that the side holes in the tincat are not too large for small mices?

Mice need a 1/4" wide space to squeeze through.  This trap is designed to keep mice inside while providing some fresh air as it is intended as a live trap.

Q.Do you still make the "tin cat" with see through top?

Yes, the Victor® TIN CAT® Mouse Trap with Window is model# M308.

Q.Using one of  your Tin Cat traps in my attic.   Over the winter I caught 10-12 field mice.  Using pb with some birdseed as bait.  Now, the seeds are eaten daily but no mice.  Made sure that the mechanism is not clogged with seeds. Any suggestions

We recommend frequently checking to see if there are mice in the trap and emptying it as soon as possible so they are not spending a prolonged period of time in the trap. If the trap is frequently checked and the mice are escaping, the trap may be damaged or in need of replacing. Our products are covered under a one year warranty.

Victor®  Live Traps - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many of mice are born at once? How do I know that I've trapped them all?

A: It’s practically impossible to tell when you've trapped them all. You should continue to trap as long as you see mice or notice signs of activity. The most apparent sign of an infestation is fresh droppings.

Q: What is the most common mistake in trapping?

A: The true number of rodents present is underestimated. As a result, not enough traps are used. Although you have killed a few rodents, the remainder of the population continues to multiply.
