These traps don't work. I know how to properly bait a trap and have had success with wooden traps for years. I'm currently 0-4 on these. Each time the rat either evades the kill bar or manages to squeeze out. And the rats aren't even that big.Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDesign Review
My first setting of two traps was successful in getting two kills. I must say that one of those kills was by a nose - of the rat. My second set of the traps was unsuccessful - both traps were set off and the bait of peanut butter was licked clean - no rats. Seems like the trip mechanism extends too close to the edge of the trap and does not allow the rat to get into the trap for the high impact bar to contact the rat for a kill. I’m not giving up, but think the designers should take another look at the function of the trap.Response From Victor®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWhoever said you can’t build a better mouse trap....... Didn’t know the folks at Victor. The power-kill has changed the game!!
It is so very RARE that I feel anything deserves a perfect score accross the board, however I must hand it to the minds at Victor. I live in a Rural setting & manage a machine shop, so the struggle against Rodents is nearly a daily effort. Eventually I just accepted that mouse traps were at least “better than nothing”, and when it came to rats, I could forget traps, and accept that I had to blanket my home/business in poison, wait forever, then brace for corpse stench in my walls for weeks. UNTIL, Power-Kill came along and changed everything. Every aspect of its design is just Awesome. *Deep Bait Trough - lures them onto the pressure pad *Easy Set/Empty - One hand to pull on the bar & you can set and empty without ever touching either the Rat or The dangerous mechanisms. *Durable - Heavy grade plastic and no flimsy metal. So you can feel better about achieving sanitation vs wood. Higher grade material of course = Longevity, And due to their strength, they perform just as well on day one as during Year Two. *Versitility - From personal experience I can say, not only does the Power-Kill perform well, Its the only Snap Trap you’ll need. It’s sensitive enough to catch a 1oz. mouse, and powerful enough to kill a 2lb. Rat larger than the trap. And it works Beautifully in home or Commercial settings. *Economical - For all it can do it’s only a mere $2-3 over a conventional wooden trap. .........But most of all........ *It ACTUALLY DOES WHAT IT SAYS IT WILL. I have never before seen a Rat trap that could repeatedly & reliably do exactly as it claimed on the packaging. I will be a customer for LIFE! And the next time the need arises, I would strongly encourage anyone to see the difference, You won’t be disappointed!
Review RateTrap needs a little re-engineering
I have been using this trap with hit & miss results. I think the pressure plate is to big and to close to the edge of the trap and the rat is not going far enough on to the trap so it can be caught. I have found that as soon as the rat touch the pressure plate at the end of the trap it triggers but the rat is not caught. May I suggest u make the pressure plate smaller and further back on the trap so the rat can go further onto the trap before it trigger the pressure plate. I thing that would help with better results in catching the rats......Thank you for readind my suggested in advance.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDoesn’t work
Horrible trap. I’ve used minimal peanut butter for bait and the trap has been cleaned out of bait, without snapping the trap. Bait hole seems way to big for a rats skinny nose to trip the trap. Waste of money You should also have a review rating with no stars. I have to choose one and that’s too highResponse From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear that you have not experienced the high level of success we typically see with this trap! Your comments have been shared with our Product Managers. Rats will trip the trap when they press the trigger pedal, the bait cup is not connected to the trigger mechanism.

Review RateQUICK, HUMANE AND EFFICIENT.
They are large enough to be killing in a quick humane way. Because of the plastic it can be easily sterilized with a hose and a tad of liquid soap. The mechanical is such that the rodent is removed easily. I hate killing any animals but in this case we dont have choice. It is pain free if the baiting is done properly compared to poison that put in danger all the animals in the food chain and the very worst which is the glue traps where the death is slow and painful. So if you care about no inflicting pain, those traps are the way to go....
Review RateThe Finest Rat Trap....Period
Used it again this morning. She (I got the ol’ Man last week) never had a chance.
Review RateFINALLY A GOOD TRAP
Best Trap EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rats are smart. But not smart enough to get away from this trap. Instant Kill.
Review Ratedecent trap, but needs some revamping
just bought two of those traps, we are getting plagued by rats right now. We caught one LARGE rat last night, only problem was, it caught the rat by the nose and did not kill it. I would suggest that you make the trap a little longer, that way the bigger rats will go further on to get to the bait. I questioned the clerk yesterday on how small this trap was as some of those rats can just stretch their heads to get to the bait, he agreed and said he has had to kill some himself. I had to kill this one which I found a little distasteful. Your trap works, but needs some work done on it to make it better.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this experience, Anastajia, and appreciate the feedback. When baiting this trap, we recommend using just a pea-sized amount of bait in the bait cup and placing the trap with the bait end against a wall. This will help place most rats in the best position for a quick, humane kills.

Review RateRats Outsmart These Traps
We bought six of these for roof rats. No rats have been harmed in any way. The rats have figured out how to trip the traps without getting hurt. All they do is feed the rats.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. For the best results, we recommend baiting the trap with a small amount of bait, such as a toothpick amount of peanut butter. By using a smaller amount, the rats are less likely to be able to quickly grab the bait and run without setting off the trap. We also recommend placing the end of the trap with the bait trough flush against the wall.
