Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap - 12 Pack

The original wood-based wire snap trap, the Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap, 12 Pack, provides instant rodent control. For effective rat control, each rat trap comes pre-baited with a large, scented plastic ‘swiss cheese’ trip pedal. The large pedal of this rat trap is easily activated – both by rodent interest in food and through accidental contact as rats scamper across the floor – to ensure maximum trapping.

#1 Selling Rat Trap in the World

With superior quality and effectiveness, the Victor® rat trap has become the #1 selling trap in the world - with over 1 billion sold. Also, Victor® rat traps are the professionals’ trap of choice.

Made in the USA

Victor® Easy Set® Rat Traps are the only traps constructed from environmentally responsible, Forest Stewardship Council certified wood. Made in the USA!

Quick, Effective, Clean

Once a rodent triggers the pedal, the rat trap immediately springs closed to eliminate the pest on contact. The rat trap can then be easily disposed of for quick and clean removal. These traps require no chemicals or poisons, so they are safe to use around food, water, children and pets when used as directed. Victor® Easy Set® Rat Traps are perfect for use anywhere in the home. These rat traps should be placed where rodents travel, such as along walls at 2 to 3 foot intervals.


Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap is Easy to Use. Here’s How:

  1. Release the arm bar from the staple.
  2. Move the arm bar to the back of the trap so it hangs over the back of the trap.
  3. Apply a small amount of peanut butter, bacon, dry pet food or nuts to the yellow pedal on the trap as shown. Be sure to use a Q-tip, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.
  4. Pull the kill bar back and hold in place with your thumb.
  5. Take the arm bar over the kill bar and latch the end of the arm bar under the yellow pedal. Please 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 and trip very easily.
  6. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The end of the trap where the yellow pedal is baited should be placed flush against the wall.
  7. After the rat is caught, properly dispose of the dead rodent. The trap can either be discarded or reused.

Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap - 12 Traps is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strongest snap traps around. I bought 12 of these before. They are the strongest snap traps around that I have used. I'd be interested in testing the Fenn traps from England against these, though Fenns are made to be used outdoors. If I use these outside they will be sheltered from the elements. I had an invasion of rats in the garage. These traps are so strong some of them were tearing themselves apart. The Chinese Mouse Guards are not as well constructed, nor are the black plastic ones with the oval bait station. They are spot welded right in the middle of the kill bar and the spot weld breaks! Plus one froze up from the rain and refused to snap. I fixed it with WD-40. I ll stick to These and the Havahart cage traps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sensitive This is the second round of a dozen traps. The desert heat trashes them over 6 months...however, they are the easiest to trap with. I've never even baited them. Never! Just place on known rat areas and they work fine without the mess. I had tried other brands, and poison...didn't work. I've yet to kill more than one Alpha they're a little tough to outsmart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't beat the tried and true We needed some of these traps in the worst way. Shipping was fast, and fair. These traps are the original and best mouse traps there are. Might be a tad cruel, but better to get them than not, right?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work great Put three traps out. Checked back next day. Three huge dead rats. These traps were super easy to set. Took me seconds to set each one. Also, I put some peanut butter bait on the plastic pedal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Strong Enough! I purchased a few of the Victor Professional rat trraps and the rats are getting in these traps and walking away. These traps do a good job on mice and smaller rats but the large ones are escaping. I wish Victor would put stronger springs on their traps. It would be a great improvement on these otherwise excellent traps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The BIG picture How about a LARGE detailed drawing on your website of how the trap should be set. "Engage locking bar on curved portion of bait pedal" doesn't clarify anything, nor does the 45 degree instructions. A picture or drawing would be so helpful.

How large a rat can this trap kill? Is it still effective on rats as large as 12 inches long?

Asked by: JWCA
Our traps are designed to be effective for all varieties of rats.

Why do you call it easy set? Is it easier than your standard wood rat trap? I have killed 10 rats so far using the original, but it is very firm to set.

Asked by: Sambones
The Easy Set® traps have the option to have a Firm or Sensitive setting. When the trap is set to Firm, it will be easier to set, but will take more effort to trigger. When the trap is set to Sensitive, it can be a little trickier to set, but will take less effort to trigger.
