Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap – A New Twist on A Classic Design Simplify your rodent control routine with the Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap. Using the original wooden snap trap design with an improved larger trip pedal to ensure higher catch rates, this trap will help you to effectively eliminate rodents around your household or business. Two settings, Firm and Sensitive, allow you to control the sensitivity of the trap. For the best accuracy and outcome, we recommend setting the trap somewhere between these two settings. In addition, these traps require no chemicals or poisons.Expanded Trigger Plate The Easy Set® Mouse Trap enhances the classic snap trap design by adding a large plastic trigger plate to ensure higher catch rates. The expanded size means it can be easily activated both by rodent interest in food and through accidental contact as mice scamper across the floor.Easy 4 Step Setup For your convenience, the Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap is very easy to use. Get your trap setup by following these four simple steps:
Location, Location, Location Set the baited trap in areas where you have noticed high levels of rodent activity. Rodents tend to travel along walls, so placement in this location often works best. For maximum effectiveness, use multiple traps, placed at 2 to 3 foot intervals to increase results. Place the trap with the baited end flush against the wall.Quick and Effective Once a rodent triggers the pedal, the Easy Set® Mouse Trap immediately springs closed to eliminate the pest on contact. After a catch, simply lift the kill bar to dispose of the mouse and reuse the trap or, dispose of the entire trap for quick, clean removal. It’s your decision!How to Set the Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap Watch and see for yourself just how easy it is to use the Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap! Just follow the simple step-by-step instructions."BEST TRAP ON THE MARKET!

Review Rateworks great. A little inginuity is required sometimes.The best trap ever. With peanut butter, or occasionally a bit of smelly cheese, it does its job!!
As for all the concern about being impossible to set, I find once in a while a trap that is difficult to set. Turning the trap on it's side, or even upside down, then turning it right side up when set, make setting it much easier. Putting it in place requires a steady hand. Bending the trigger wire hold loop a touch forward will make the trap less sensitive. Just be careful that it does not take too much pressure to spring.
Regarding missing bait, I have found bugs, like roaches, can steal the bait. Use an insecticide around the traps to minimize the problem. But, don't spray the trap!! The mice will stay away from the bait.
If you are concerned about fingers being snapped, always hold the trap by the edges on the "open snap" end, the end away from the bait bar. That way, if the trap snaps, the bar will close going away from your fingers.
I have found these traps work much better than the metal bar traps. The take too much pressure to be reliable.
Here's to a mouse free house!!
Review RateLove and Hate
Love the traps and hate the traps, I have been around these things for years growing up and have had my fingers snapped several times when I was younger, I have learned that these highly effective traps work great with peanut butter for bait and I bait them center of the yellow cheese square, latch them very carefully and place them on a sheet of paper or very thin cardboard to slide and position them in place. Be careful with putting them in place! they are SENSITIVE!! To remove just toss a pencil or pen or the like on the trigger to deactivate, please dont try to just pick it up and unlatch an unsnapped trap by hand! Also always remember where you placed your traps, stepping on one at night fumbling around barefoot a few times with a slap on the toe will be shocking for a few minutes and ruien a nights sleep, fingers cought up trying to set them in a hurry and not being careful you will soon hate and curse them, but if you take your time and be careful and set your traps wisely you will kill mice quickly efficiently and fall in love with the best little mouse killer in the world!!
Review RateAgonizingImpossible to set up. Like everyone else said, the metal bar is way too short and it constantly snaps while I'm holding it. It's a disgrace the customer service rep is posting that one useless video like we don't already know how to set the thing up, we know HOW to, your product is just so terrible that it's impossible to get it to work.
Review RateGood product.These traps do what they were made to do. Catch mice! You put them where the mice run. Great trap.
Review RateDon't Buy
Worst trap I ever bought. Doesn't work at all. The sensitive side continuously snaps and the other side allows the mouse to take all the bait without even triggering the trap. A complete waste of money. How many negative reviews will it take before you stop making these?
1/5 is too high a score. These new mouse traps deserve a 0. I can no longer find the old style metal ones, and these ones do not hold nearly as well. The weight of the plastic paddle is all it takes at any setting to release the kill bar. If I could return this trash I would. I am mad, why improve on the old design? They actually worked.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDo not get this trap
Impossible to set. The wire slips off the yellow tray way to easily and snaps your finger. The metal tray is ok. This yellow plastic tray SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS big time.

Review RateStay Away
I have a 50% failure rate with this trap. Half the time, the trap won't stay set. Stay away from this design.Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this recent experience with these traps. They can be set with both a firm or sensitive setting. For more information on baiting and setting these traps, please watch our instructional video.
Review RatePen under tab worked for me
I just tried Luke's tip about using a pen under the yellow tab (I used a yellow pencil). Either I was very lucky today or else it really simplified setting and placing the traps. I had been shopping for other traps due to difficulty of placing these. I could actually set the trap but couldn't place on floor without tripping.
