- Release the Arm Bar - Remove the staple and hang the arm over the back of the trap.
- Bait the Trap - While the trap is pre-baited with a scent, apply bait on the plastic pedal for best results. Use a high-protein bait such as peanut butter or hazelnut spread.
- Set the Trap - Pull back the kill bar and hold it securely with your thumb. Place the arm bar over the kill bar and secure it under the plastic pedal. Take note of the Firm and Sensitive setting. The trap will be easier to set on the firm side, but not trip as easy. The trap will be more difficult to set on the sensitive side, but trip very easily.
- Place the Trap - Locate an area with high rodent activity or place the trap along the wall. The trap should be perpendicular to the wall with the yellow trigger plate flush against the baseboard.

Review RateExcellent productI am completely satisfied with these mouse traps. I really like the wide yellow pedal, as it's a bigger trigger area.
Review RateAt least it's not poison in the food chain
I have used this exact trap exclusively since 2003. But the last ones I bought aren't the same. They rust outside, it's never happened before. And the last one? The yellow plastic thing flew off the trap! In the past, if it snapped, the rat was dead. Now it's hit or miss. I know rats are smart, but also, this isn't working as good as it once did. Please bring back the way it was, where it didn't rust and fall apart. Thank you.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWaste of money...stick with original.
Useless. Old style far better. Rat avoids the yellow elevated plastic trigger and feeds from the side. Doesn't even trigger...cleaned the bait and even had it wired on.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for sharing this recent experience with our Easy Set® traps. We apologize for the difficulty in setting them. To learn more about setting this trap and bait placement, we recommend watching our instructional video, linked here: https://youtu.be/gEyPmkyvteY

Review RateGreat review
Great product. Great company
Review Ratewaste of my money.
The new side trigger traps are a waste of money compared to the original traps. Why do people change a product that works to a product that they figure is new and improved. Give me the original any day of the week if i could find them in someones old inventory.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Great product.. needs better instructions. Didn’t catch the sensitive vs whatever they call it till the 3rd pack and a website review.. also didn’t think to just use a toothpick to put peanut butter in the little area in the trap! Hit my fingers several times and waisted money on at least 4 traps till I figured it out! I work in retail and now I can tell guests about how to use it, but who really looks up this crap, just like any product! So I suggest better instructions on tHe package.. anyway not a bad product once educated on it and not 3 purchases later! And no I don’t want any refund and I have no receipts saved so don’t send send me that message!!! I am just not happy I got snapped several times and I am now paranoid about those things and also at this point confident in working them.. 3 purchases later like a dumb ....
Review RateSnap trap
This is the best trap ever. Just put a little peanut butter in the space provided and set and place. Excellent trap
Review RateReviewing customers without a clue!
The plastic triggers are the best idea ever! If you know how to tune them a little, you will never miss your target. They are very fast and hit with thunder!! I’ve use these for years and have hundreds of them! Our wildlife company only buys victor and not those copy cat traps. I’ve been in business for over 30 years, and NOTHING beat victor rat traps with the plastic triggers!! Thank you for the best trap on the market!! Your company have made me a lot of money over the year because of your GREAT product! Thank you Victor!!
Review RateHow to ensure humane kill?
When we set on the firm setting, the bait was eaten and the trap was not triggered, so we set to the soft setting. We caught one rat, then the next time we found the trap with just a piece of rat skin under the triggered kill bar. The rat was gone, and must have either torn or chewed itself free. This is inhumane. I don't know how we can improve the setup to ensure the trap is only triggered for a clean kill. We have this trap in a wooden tunnel so the rats can only approach from one direction, at the trigger end, as is recommended in our location to prevent other species from being caught.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! Victor® manufactures traps that will provide as humane of a kill as possible. We are sorry to hear this was not your experience. It is important to use only a small amount of bait, such as a pea size or the amount that will fit on the tip of a toothpick. This ensures the rat engages with the trap in a way that will provide a quick, humane kill.

Review Ratewaste of money. Keep it simple. Not need for the plastic insert.
These are a complete waste of money. we bought 3 of these (with wooden boxes to protect other species). After several weeks, we have caught only one mouse, and the other traps have had the cheese removed without going off. I went to reset the trap and couldn't get the metal to attach onto the bar. Basically it is a ONE use trap. Useless. When we used other traps in the box, they worked fine.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Please take note to the Firm and Sensitive settings. The trap will be easier to set on the firm side, but not trip as easily. Likewise, the trap will be more difficult to set on the sensitive side and trip very easily. We recommend setting the trap in between these two settings.

Easy Set Rat Traps - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the best bait to use?

A: The F and the S located on the bait pedal of the trap stand for firm and sensitive. The trap can either be set with a firm setting or sensitive setting. An instruction sheet and video are available that will give detailed step-by-step instructions on how to set the Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap. The instruction sheet and video also explain how to use the firm and sensitive setting and the difference between the two.
