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
- Bait – One dab of peanut butter is all you need.
- Place – Setting the trap is as easy as placing it down where mice have previously been spotted.
- 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.

Review RateTrap works fine.
Bought this Tin Cat, worked once. Mice began to find their way out. Called Victor, they sent me another one. While waiting I tried the 1st one again & it began working catching up to 5 mice at a time. Don't know what happened but it works great now. So, thank you Victor.
Review RateDeath trap
How are you supposed to know that you caught a mouse or multiple mice?!?! Shake the box? Or open the lid so you can check and then accidentally release them back in your house? Clear or light lids is the only thing that makes sense!!!Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Great idea, but I have caught only 1 mouse early on. Since then its the same familiar story..bait gone, mouse pee/poop inside box and no mice! Has your design team figured out what is happening and why these boxes are failing to catch mice? Is there a size/weight limitation at play with the ramp/doors? Each time, I have tested the door via the peep hole and the ramp and outer door seems to work ok ( not obstructed ). It theres a quick remedy to this issue pls let me know...I'm off to purchase a couple of snap traps to replace the tin cats!Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Sorry. This "trap" is a joke. Mice go in, eat bait and leave like it's a restaurant.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateMice can escape
Like a lot of the other reviews, I was having success, and now I'm not. I woke up this morning and heard a mouse in the trap, looked and confirmed. I was waiting for the sun to come up before I took it outside and in the hour I waited, the mouse escaped. Don't tell me to put glue traps inside. That has got to be the most cruel suggestion I have ever heard. If I wanted to torture them, I'd just buy glue traps to begin with. Now I have to figure why this trap that was successful suddenly isn't. (I highly doubt the mice are working in tandem. "Hey man, go get help, I'm stuck! Rally the troops!")Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateTin Cat is Kind, Compassionate and Effective!
I had a family of mice living inside of my piano. The first night Tin Cat® caught all 8 mice. I then felt better letting them go in a strange place knowing they had friends with them.
Review RateUsed to work, does not work now.
I used a tin cat successfully for about 15 years, catching 1, 2, and even 3 mice at a time. A mouse would enter our house, then another, then we would have babies and I'd have to catch about 12 mice over the next few weeks. That was fine. Then mice started entering, eating, shitting, and leaving the trap. I concluded that the trap was old and corroded and I bought a new one, plus tried three other models from the local hardware. But I have Super Mice! They enter, eat, and leave all these traps. Either they are pulling them open with their little hands or they are working in teams, with an outside mouse helping the inside mouse out! Now I am trying the noise machine and the peppermint with so far no success.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry for this experience. How often is the trap monitored? We recommend checking it daily and releasing the mice that are trapped. If they remain in the trap for too long, they will quickly become anxious and go to extreme measures to escape.

Review RateTin Cat works better than real cats!
I have five cats and for 6 my baths there’s been a little field mouse under my stove. The only cat even remotely interested in catching it is my extremely geriatric 16 year old cat. And he just doesn’t have the reflexes any more—even when he and the mouse were in the counter together. So I bought the Tin Cat trap and caught the little guy in less than 15 hours. Mouse has been relocated to a park and ride next to a vacant lot five miles away and I will keep fresh bait in the trap for the next week or so just to be sure. THANK YOU!!!
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.
