Review RateWaste of money. Does not kill
These traps are worthless. I have videos of rats being caught and then quickly escaping. The traps are also easy for rats to dodge.Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Rateweak design
This is in regard to your Power Kill plastic rat trap. Although the design is old it is ok. The trap itself is unerdesigned in size, the trap would be much more effective if it were 15-20% larger. this would then also mean that the trap and spring mechanism would be more robust and effective in not just trying to hold the rat, but to kill it.

Review RateNo smelly leftover rats in the walls
Works every time, I'm about to use this product again. Clean area where rats are known to look for food and place the trap with enticing food and return to find a dead rat.
Review RateIneffective product
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 RateTrapless Trap
I have 4 of the traps. There are rats in my yard from neighbors chicken feed. I put rat poison in them and the rats are eating the small amount of poison out of the traps setting them off but are not getting trapped. I push the bait down in the pocket on the trap but they still clean them out. I don't recommend them.Response From Victor®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateRat did not die
Easy to use but did not kill my average size rat even though it did catch him behind the head. It was gasping and writhing when I found it. Took a few blows with a shovel to finish the job. On the bright side, I didn’t have to touch or get near the rat when cleaning the trap. That said I’ll return this and go back to the wood version. Seem to be more powerful despite the name.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

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.
