Description
Victor® Deadset™ Mole Trap Trapping moles has never been easier, thanks to the sleek, ergonomically designed Deadset™ Mole Trap. If you’ve ever struggled to set a mole trap, you will undoubtedly appreciate how effortless it is to activate this one. It also comes fully assembled and ready to use! Plus, you can have peace of mind in knowing that the trap’s spears are located below ground, away from children and pets.
Sensitive Trigger Quickly Kills Moles The Deadset™ Mole Trap features a precision-built triggering system that is activated by the slightest movement. When underground movement is detected, the spears are thrust into the ground, quickly killing the mole.
Easy to Use The Deadset™ boasts an ergonomically designed, easy grip handle and an oversized activator plate that can be pushed into the tunnel by hand or foot. When setting this plunge-style mole trap, make sure the spears can move freely through the ground so nothing obstructs them when the trap is triggered.
How to Set the Deadset™ Mole Trap The Victor® Deadset™ Mole Trap is incredibly easy to use. Simply follow these six easy steps to get started.
  1. Prior to treatment, determine which tunnels are active by poking a 1” hole in the raised earth into the tunnel. If the hole is resealed in 24 hours, the tunnel is active.
  2. After identifying active burrows, water the active area thoroughly.
  3. Press down on the raised earth with your foot to collapse the roof.
  4. Then, press the trap into the softened ground. Use the foot pegs to set the trap firmly in place.
  5. Raise and lower the handle until the spears move freely through the ground.
  6. With feet on the foot pegs, raise the handle to set the trap.

This is a GREAT mole trap. By Davit66
We moved to this 10 acre property 7 years ago. It was infested with pocket gophers everywhere and moles all around the house. Tried a couple different products to get rid of the gophers before finally getting the Victor gopher traps. Total success. Close to 100 gophers eliminated in 7 years with no broken traps.
The moles have been a different story. Using pellet bait with little success. Decided to try the Victor mole trap given my success with the gopher traps. I only purchased one and can't speak to the durability of this trap but in two days I've been able to quickly eliminate three moles around the house. Easy to use and easy to tell when the trap has been triggered. I am very pleased with the effectiveness and ease of use of this mole trap. Highly recommend.

Inferior product By GT
I have had several of these and they work well until the legs break off or the catch mechanism stops working causing the handle to no longer stay up in a cocked position. I contacted Victor’s customer service about it and their response was basically they were sorry and they referred the problem to their product development. I pretty much felt like they were just blowing me off because these two problems have been going on for years and they have not corrected either problem yet. Almost seems as if their intent is to not make it to last very long so they can sell more.

Traps Useless By Dave

I purchased 2 of your mole traps in the hope it will help me get rid of my problem. I found fresh mole tracks, placed the traps at different spots at different times. I noted the moles came through again, following the previous tracks, but eventhough the traps activated, the caught Nothing!!! Getting these traps was just a waste of my time and money!

Response From Victor®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Dave - Thank you for sharing this experience. We are sorry to learn that the traps did not see any catches. When placing the traps, we recommend to first determine the active mole runs. Simply collapse a few tunnels and see which ones are pushed back up. When setting the trap, be sure to collapse the tunnel again so the mole has to push up, triggering the trap. Our traps are backed by a 30 day return policy. Please reach out to us at 1-855-584-2867 with any questions.

Waste of money By Sunal

Simply does not work here - resetting in different spots for months and no results. Active runs all around.

Response From Victor®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Thank you for sharing this recent experience. We are sorry to learn that the desired results were not seen when using this trap. Setting the trap in an active run is very important, as well as collapsing the tunnel where the trap is being placed. We also suggest using a multi-tier approach to removing moles from the yard, which includes both trapping and repelling. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.

Works very well if used correctly By David

I'm not sure why the reviews are as low on this item as they are. I have been playing Caddy shack with moles in my yard for 2 years, My wife found this trap on Amazon and bought it. I thought it was going to be another waste of money. I followed the instructions to the T and low and behold, the first day I used it I got the sucker. Wished I would have started with it 2 years ago. Some have complained about the tines not being long enough. Dig out a little dirt and sink it a little closer to he burrow hole. Problem solved.

It works By Butch

This is the only Mole trap that I have caught Mole's with. I step on the run and I use a large screw diver to set holes for the plastic stacks 1 on each side of the run and snap the trap several time to make sure the prongs go in to the earth with out hitting any thing.

Excellent trap. Quickly breaks and becomes worthless By Mole killer

This trap is the most effective I have ever used .They are easy to set.very effective in killing moles However they seldom last a season because the legs quickly break off. The legs and side pieces should be metal . This would be an excellent trap if it were durable

Trap may need Mod By 2Bl4d3

What I am seeing is the moles are detecting this trap and burrowing below it. I have found they have also tunneled right around the trap. There is evidence of new tunneling each time. What I would like to see is a longer plastic side spike, to get the trap further into the ground, and I would also like it a bit wider, say 1 inch total. I would also like an extra row of tines, and possibly an extra set in the front or the back. I have 8 of these and the ones that were tripped showed no sign of dead moles. Just an FYI.

Not worth the price By CaJunaut

Not Happy Either Like Al I bought 3 of the deadset mole traps over the last four years. Like Al’s trap they are hard to set but when the do they are DEADLY . Also all of the legs broke off over time like they got brittle and break off at the base of the trap. If they were made of ALL METAL they would last a long time. I cannot give a favorable because of my issues with the trap. I have some videos of the KILL but cannot I can’t find a photo upload on this website.
