As a nusciance trapper I have always relied on victor for my business. I recently bought some new oops mole traps to replace my old ones and was shocked to see the light weight,weak spring piece of junk they were now selling. They should be ashamed. It will not even close in good soil.

I'm a contractor who used to use the Out O Sight traps exclusively for moles. They were one of the few traps that worked and most professionals were using them. Then a couple years back something changed. The springs became weak and useless. These traps will NOT work to trap moles and are a waste of money. The professional are switching to different traps now. The only thing caught in these traps now are poor gullible homeowners.
New version has much weaker springs

Bought a few to replace the ~15 year old Victor traps that look identical, however the new traps are much weaker. The springs are so weak I can set them without the tools. Meanwhile the same traps that are ~15 years old have much stronger springs and will actually trap moles. The new version is much weaker, time to try something different.
Used to be good, spring is way too weak now

These victor moles traps have been my go-to trap on the farm for decades. I have caught thousands of moles with these. Problem is, the company went cheap and the new traps suck. The spring is way weaker than the one from years ago. So now the trap closes so slowly that the mole just cruises right by. I still have 1 of the older traps, it never misses, but the new traps (2 of them) have never caught a single mole in 2 years. We have loose sandy soil, and I am setting the traps the same way I always have, this is a design flaw that makes these newer traps worthless.
Absolute horrible trap.

Absolute horrible trap. I just bought 40 of them and one of them broke on the first set. Another trap caught the mole but it drug the trap around until it died. Weak springs don’t do anything anymore. Would not recommend these.

I will say I am impressed. The very first time I set my new trap, within a few hours I had gotten my first mole. After reviewing some videos for set up, I realized that the jaws should not have any blockage to operate as needed. Will be purchasing more as I have a serious mole problem in my yard. Only giving it 4 stars because I just started using this trap and do not know how it will be later down the road.

Very unfortunate that this trap is no longer effective like the older ones. We used to buy 100s of these traps a year. And I know many other companies that will do the same. We will no longer buy these traps. I hope Victor will take this serious and go back to a stronger spring.

I purchased two Victor C0631 mole traps from Amazon in Sep 2022 after having great experiences with earlier versions. Unfortunately, the items received were grossly ineffective at catching moles due to the underpowered springs of the redesigned traps. Multiple trips with zero catch rate. This was unheard of with the previous version of this trap. I guess I'm now forced to go to a competitor if I want to catch moles.
