Review RateDumb design!
What a worthless trap! What happened to the old design? I was all excited to set my traps up in my chicken coop to catch the fat bastard that's stealing their food. Well that was a waste....Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNew Design Is Junk
Geeez. What junk. I just used up my last rat trap (USA-made design) from my previous stash earlier this week. I went to my local farm supply store and bought another stash yesterday. As soon as I opened the first package I knew I was handling junk. It was a flimsy, poor quality imitation of the original. It was hard to bait with its upside down pedal notch, very difficult to set with its poor catch latch and left me with an uneasy feeling. It was also prone to false triggering due to the poor catch latch design. Then, I noticed the made in China print on the wrapper. Why try to fix something that ain't broke? Fortunately, I only opened one package. The rest will be returned to the store. I will be looking for an alternative.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateIt worked but he suffered
As a single female, I was completely freaked out to find that a rat had taken up residence on my screened-in back porch. He had shoe two holes through the screen and there was rat droppings everywhere. I called an exterminator who wanted $300 to take care of the issue. I bought one of these rat traps for less than five bucks and it caught the rat the first night I set the trap out. My only complaint is that somehow after the Trap was activated, the rat was able to free itself from the trap then crawl up to my back door and died. How did it get out of the Trap and how badly must have suffered? I know a lot of people don't care about this, but I do. I wanted him to be killed instantly and not suffer. For that reason I'm giving the Trap four stars out of five
Review RateMade in China
I own a hardware store that’s been in business for 97 years and we always recommend Victor products, however that’s not the case anymore. We’re very disappointed in the new design of your rat traps. First of all they’re made in China and they are now identical to the tom cat traps (which my customers do not like.) Second, they are very hard to set unlike the original made in Lititz PA design that I’ve sold for years. A side by side comparison to the old and the New showed that everything is cheaper, the metal is thinner, the wood is thinner. I will no longer be selling this product until the quality is returned to what it once was. It’s not like you’ve lowered the prices with this cheap design.....Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNew design not working
I couldn’t figure out why I now can’t catch any rats. All the bait is gone on multiple traps but no victims. After looking over the traps and packaging it became very apparent. The new design changes and now made in China. They now do not work. Wow hope Victor figured this one out. The previous design had me so successful that the neighborhood called me the Rat Guy. Last spring out of 19 traps I only had two misfired traps with 19 rats killed. Rats had no chance. Previous spring very similar results. Currently however, the 5 new traps have been reloaded 2-3 more times each without any kills. If a company is going to change a design, then test it to verify if it still works. I realize that cost considerations in manufacturing is needed, but not at the expense of the consumer. VICTOR they don’t work like the old design. Now I have a bunch of traps that will be put into the trash without RATS!Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratedissapointed with change in design
Dear Victor, The rats in my shed would like to thank you very much for the new bait pedal switch design on the new traps made in China. It allows them to freely eat the bait with no fear of being snapped. The old traps marked 'Made in USA" were very scary for the rats and typically meant a short life. The new traps marked "Made in China" will ensure the rats eat well and live to a great old age. Please please fix the pedal mechanism!...Your old traps worked great...why change it?Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. The time taken to share this feedback with us is appreciated and the information has been passed along to our Product Managers. For the best results, we recommend using a toothpick amount of peanut butter and placing the trap along the wall of the shed.

Review RateManufacturing not up to snuff! This trap is useless.
I had the same problem.. I bought two individual traps from Rona today. The first one I opened was good ol' reliable & set quickly. The next package looked like the bait holder was smaller, but more importantly upside down. Upon closer inspection I can see it is on correctly, but the top of the bait holder is not bent in, so that the hold down bar has nothing to hold it. I thought it must be a new-fangled trap, so came to the website to find out how to set it. Imagine my dismay to find out others have the same problem; and yes the package says made in china. I'll pay more if that's what it takes to keep manufacturing in North America, where proper quality control can be on top of production. This is ridiculous, I am extremely disappointed. Guess I will have to find a new go-to trap, I can't inspect every trap thru a wrapper to make sure it is made correctly!Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateVictor rat trap changed design to be the same as Tomcat rat trap? Go figure!
We bought a 2 pack trap at Homedepot. We caught a rat the first night. I was totally grossed out and threw the rat along with the trap. The other trap caught another rat, this time we didn't throw out the trap, realizing there's more than one. Anyway, we figured that we need to buy more traps. We went to the same Home Depot, got the same trap. However, when we got home, we found out that although it is the same brand and everything the trap changed. The bait holder became squarish, making it difficult to hold the bait, the lever holder doesn't catch as well that I hurt myself setting it. We returned it and tried to look for the old one. We noticed that the "new" Victor rat is now made in China instead of USA, also it's mechanism is exactly like the Tomcat. Why would you change something that works is beyond me.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateEffective and unfailingly lethal
We grow Cherokee Purple tomatoes in our backyard. One morning our ripe fruit was ruined. Six traps were set as a perimeter. Three days later the rats were ruined. Baited with hard cheddar or Swiss cheese impaled on the metal tongue, then a very thin smear of peanut butter over the cheese. Lick, chew, die.
