Reviews for Victor® Wide Pedal Rat Trap

Dec 4, 2023
The set bar does not reach the pedal. Instructions too vague. No mention why there are the letters/symbols F and S on the bait pedal. No way the set bar slips under the pedal, it simply does not reach and no place to put it.

Out of all the rat traps I have been using from the glue to poison this one type this product is not only very user friendly but also reusable and a lot more humane then the glue traps and for what it cost Wich is a few bucks it paid for itself 10x. I highly recommend this … my only problem is….. I should have done this a lot sooner!!! Thank you ????
Not super impressed

Bought some of these locally and they are completely inferior to the older traps in terms of setting them. Arming the is a pain as the large paddle is plastic and the arming lever slips out at the slightest touch... We caught a leaf in one.. Rain set off another... Heck, even arming in a vertical orientation as reccommend just causes the traps to go off when laid horizontal again, so watch your thumbs. I chose Victor traps over another brand, despite their price, ($6.99 +tx CAD each) but if I had my time back, I'd get a cheaper brand with a more reliable trigger.
These traps are DANGEROUS!

These traps are DANGEROUS! I tried to set 2 of them and neither would set. It was impossible to get the arm bar to stay in the groove on the plastic bait paddle (in either sensitive or firm mode), even after reading the instructions on this site and watching the video. On my last try, I managed to catch the side of my finger under the kill bar (this bruise is going to last a while). I'm fortunate i didn't break my finger! They are in the garbage now. Do not buy this trap. You may hurt yourself.

I have tried two, both bought new. Both failed when trying to set them. The pressure on the mechanism when trying to set them caused the center pivot area come loose. In one case the staple holding it in place cam out. In the other case the center bar worked out of the staple holding it. I give up , be wary in buying these.
