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.

Victor® TIN CAT® Mouse Trap - 1 Trap is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOOO HAPPY with this trap!! 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mouse trap ever! This is the best, most humane mouse trap I've ever used. It is super simple to set up, easy to release the little guys back into the "wild", and easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TIN CAT TRAPS These traps work very well, I've had as many as three mice at a time in the traps. I empty the traps into a 55gal. plastic barrel with a lid on it away from the house as they begin to smell in the summer. In one year I've caught over 150 mice and shrews in my out buildings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good a trap as it appears I must be dealing with a very smart mouse, because he goes in, eats the bait, and then gets out! I checked the mechanism over and over and can't figure it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Humane trap This trap will catch the mouse and you can release it without killing it. I made a choice to not kill the mouse and I am happy that Victor has a no kill mouse trap that works as good if not better than traditional kill mouse traps.

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

Asked by: Papa
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. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.

These works great for a while but now the mice escape without any problem. I just seem to be attracting more mice by baiting them. Everything looks fine mechanically with the trap. I've had this problem for a while with both of my traps. Help!

Asked by: Bruce
It is important that the ramps are positioned above the overhang on the inside of the trap. For additional assistance please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867).

I must be dealing with a very smart mouse, because he goes in, eats the bait, and then gets out! I checked the mechanism over and over and can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

Asked by: Mart
We would recommend frequently checking the traps for catches. If a mouse is left inside the trap for too long without food or water, they may grow hungry and attempt to escape.

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?

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.
