Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap Eliminate your rodent problem quickly and effectively with the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap. From set-up and use through cleaning and maintenance, each zap will be a snap thanks to the easy-to-use design. This humane trap kills rodents using a high-voltage shock and since rats are able to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes to ensure higher kill rates. To get started, simply apply a high-protein bait in the provided bait cup, place the trap in an indoor location with high rodent activity and turn it on.Best used for:AtticsGaragesBasementsKitchensHigh-Voltage Shock Humanely Kills Rodents The Rat Zapper® Classic is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, it steps on the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a continuous high-voltage shock for 2 minutes to effectively eliminate rat invader. This trap is capable of eliminating up to 20 rats per set of fully charged batteries (4 “AA”).LED Light Alerts With the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap, simplifying your pest control routine is a breeze. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes green to indicate a kill. You’ll know when it’s time to empty your trap without having to check manually. When it's time to change the batteries, the light will flash red.
Note: If you have the old version of the Rat Zapper® Classic (with the plug), the light will flash red for all alerts instead of green.No-Touch Cleanup With the Rat Zapper® Classic, cleanup is effortless! Unlike standard rat traps, you don’t have to touch or look at dead rodents. The rat is contained within the kill chamber, which hides it from sight, while the indicator light lets you know when it’s time to empty. After a kill, just tip the trap to discard the dead rodent into the trash without having to touch it.How to Set the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap For your convenience, the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap is very easy to use.

Review RateExposed wire
So when I bought it it worked fine for the 3 first time then nothing....then I started to examine the trap closer and found out that I had a very intelligent rat that chewed the wire before stepping on the plate then ate the bate. Called the company and they are sending me a new one. Good consumer attention. Thank you Victor
Review RateLacking Quality Control
I was about to order the 3 pack, but then I read your recent reviews. Sounds like you have outsourced your manufacturing to China, which we all know has no quality control. And by all the complaints of units that arrive DOA, or die within a year, doesn't sound like Victor has any quality control either! Just replying to folks that you will replace the Dead ones, is not the Answer! Who needs the hassle of buying & returning & waiting for replacements, while the rats are busy multiplying. Sounds like you used to have a great product ... Why not put those back in production?Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateOld ones worked great! What happened?
I bought my first RatZapper in 2011. I still have it, and it has killed over 50 rats (since I started keeping track a few years ago). In the years since, I bought 5 more. They don't work well. Some don't work at all. Most die completely within a year. The original has a red LED; the newest one is green. If you look at the circuit board, only the original has disconnect terminals for the kill plates - very helpful when diagnosing faults! And the older arc generator coil looks much larger. It seems obvious that the newer editions employed cost-cutting measures (China?) and quality suffered severely.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateThe best!
I purchased my first zapper over 10 years ago (after seeing an ad in an airplane magazine). I think I purchased a two pack at the time. My zapper lasted for years. I purchased a replacement that had an electrical malfunction and they had me return it and it was repaired (I honestly believe that it didn’t last very long upon having it repaired); however, one of my originals was still working and my overall mouse problem was resolved after living in my home for over a year. I have purchased many of these as gifts, if a friend had the same problem that I did once moving into a vacated home. I highly recommend it and it is one of the most cherished gifts that you can give. (My sister came over to empty ours because I’m afraid of mice).
Review RateLousy! Don't waste your money.
Terrible! I ipreviously had an older model which worked well -- got 5 rats in one week. After it failed I bought one of these & it has never gotten even one rat. The green light goes on & nothing happens. I might try another brandResponse From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
