Victor® TIN CAT® Mouse Trap with Window
The Victor® TIN CAT® Mouse Trap with Window and cover all bases at your business, home or office. For use indoors or outdoors, each reusable metal trap can catch and hold up to 30 mice. Since it does not include any poisons and simply contain the mice without harming them, they may be used near children, pets, food and water. An added feature of this model is the viewing window, which allows you to see when a mouse has been caught, as well as how full the trap is.
Simple 3-Step Method
- Bait – Just a dab of peanut butter is all it takes.
- Place – Put the trap along a wall or next to a hole where mice have been located.
- Release – When the trap is full, dispose of the captives following your local authority’s guidelines for releasing captured animals into the wild. The trap may then be reused or stored away until needed again.
Large Capacity for Maximum Effectiveness
Each unit can lure and trap up to 30 mice before needing to be emptied, and will eliminate your problem in no time!
Convenient Indoor and Outdoor Design
Indoors, the TIN CAT® mice trap’s sleek design allows for inconspicuous placement in your home, particularly in drop ceilings, raised floors and underneath furniture. Outdoors, the traps can prevent your intruder from even getting inside!
No-Touch, Non-Lethal Rodent Solution
Turned off by the thought of handling a dead mouse? Then the TIN CAT® is perfect for you! Rather than kill rodents, this trap lets you return them back to their original home in the wild – without ever touching them! Familiarize yourself with local guidelines first so that you release them where you are allowed to.
Prevent Escapes with a Simple Upgrade
Add our pre-baited Victor Glue Boards (model BM309) for enhanced effectiveness. Designed to insert easily into the trap, the glue board will help keep mice from moving about and attempting to escape. A little olive oil is all that is needed to free them afterward. It is advised that you check the trap more frequently if you add a glue trap, as you will want to ensure that the opening does not become blocked by mice that become stuck upon entering.

Review RateI love "Tin Cats" ^..^
How can you not love a mouse trap named the "Tin Cat". I purchased 3 Tin Cats, (with clear window tops). A contractor recently painted our exterior man doors and left the doors ajar as they dried. Fall is arriving; and partially opened doors seemed like an "open invitation" for mice. So, I set the Tin Cats along various walls in the garage, basement, and sun room. My Bait: small black sunflower seeds, a little dryer lint, and tiny amounts of stuffing from the dog's toys. "Success" the first night; and gloating :-) There were 3 mice in one trap, and two in another. It's easy to take the traps outside, and let my "unwanted guests" find other places to roam. As a household with a dog and a cat, these traps are ideal. The Tin Cat can be placed in unobtrusive areas; with no worries about canine or feline paws and noses getting into trouble. I suggest Tin Cat owners check their traps frequently, so the trapped mouse is not traumatized. With the clear-window-cover this is easy to do, you simply glance at the clear top as you stroll by. I use a hose / nozzle to rinse the traps after release and let them dry in the sunshine, before setting them again. Thank you, Victor, "Tin Cats" are effective, humane, and fun to use.
Review RateCatches Mice!
I bought these back in July but didn't put them out until last night after the pest management company came and did another tightening up of the house. They left me some (non-poisonous) bait and made suggestions where I could put the traps. I did that last night. This morning one of the traps had a mouse in it. A while later there were two and then, just before I was ready to take them 1/2 mile down the street to the local park, I saw a third tail! I am thrilled. That's three mice that no longer live in my house. I love the clear top - to be able to see if they are there or not - no guessing. These traps are humane and clean. I totally recommend them!
Review RateEfficient and effective.
So many years have passed, and so many different houses and types of traps - I don't remember my first Tin Cat. Maybe it was in the mid-2000s. They work very well. I've even noticed that when placed properly but without bait they seem to lure in the mice. When one mouse is trapped it seems to attract others. If I don't get to them soon enough they go cannibal. One mouse left in the trap too long will either die from anxiety and escape efforts, or just suicide by a willful act. Odd. When cleaning (after a cannibal orgy) I submerge the traps in a bucket of soapy or bleach water and spray with a hose. I have about a dozen Tin Cats now, and put them into service as soon as a family of mice moves in. After a few days they're usually all trapped and disposed of - To a distant part of the desert, or in the trash if they've given up the ghost. Of course, I highly recommend the clear top (viewable) model; it saves a lot of fussing when checking the traps in the morning. As far as economy, I think Tin Cats are surprisingly affordable for the construction quality and design. Properly kept, they would seem to be unlimited by age. One thing to consider is that the two operating trap mechanisms, if separated from the base, will need a little mechanical understanding to re-attach them; not much of a problem. Last year I placed one Tin Cat in the garage where I suspected mouse traffic and entry into the house proper. I checked it regularly for months, but gradually became less diligent. Sure enough - After about a year suddenly it was full of mouse remains - A bunch of them entered, got hungry, ate those who came before. No idea how many perished there, but for every one that died in captivity, that's one that didn't get into the house. Every time this happens I swear I'll check the traps daily, but it doesn't matter much. It's all about keeping them out of the food stores, keeping them from building nests and breeding in the house. Good traps.
Review Ratemouse catcher
I got my first order 2 weeks back. A day later I caught one of the mice that has been hanging around for who know how long. The first one someone was dead when I opened the top. Then a couple of days back I caught another one live. This was not only humane, but have given me a sense of reality to the pest. By catching them live, you remove the anxiety and scariness of the little guy. Thank you
Review RateReasonably priced, effective and efficient. I highly recommend this product.
Very easy to use. Easy to release mice. I like the clear top. Reusable so it pays for itself. I've recommended it to my friends.
Review RateNot working for me!
Out of 10 traps I set, have only caught 1 mouse!!!!!! I see mice run around in the shop and shed and on the porch all the time, but they're not going in the traps. Wasted my money!Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateOld one worked, new ones only catch mouse 'pups'
I first bought one of these a few years ago, and it caught enough mice to bring the invasion to an end. So when I saw evidence of mice near the furnace again a couple of months ago, I cheerfully placed the trap. It caught a few mice, then one of the doors started to jam and let them out. So I went out and bought two new ones a few months ago. Aside from a few very young mice early on, though, all I've found inside is scattered bait, poop, and two disgustingly memorable times, a half-eaten mouse corpse. I've also seen two mice run from the center right out one door. Based on the noise one made, it sounded like they're figuring out how to pull the see-saw ramp down from the inside.Response From Victor®Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to share this feedback and would like to learn more about it, in order to better assist. Please feel free to give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any questions. As for the half-eaten mice, we recommend emptying traps frequently to avoid this, as mice are cannibalistic if left without food long enough.
Review RateWorks great.
Just stuck a little cheese to end of entrance and had a mouse trapped by the morning.
Review RateGreat live traps, even without bait
Great live traps. Work better than any other traps I've tried, even without bait. I use in greenhouse, shop, stables, and multiple garages.

Bought this for my mother, having work done on her house and mice entered. Put one down and caught 2 mice in one night. Gave one to my sister and she caught 3 in her shed. works great and very humane
