With the Victor® The Black Box Gopher Trap, you can be prepared when the worst happens.

Effective and Versatile
Effective and Versatile This convenient choker loop-style trap quickly and effectively kills nuisance gophers before they can continue wreaking havoc on your property. When properly placed in the runway, the trap will snare the unsuspecting gopher in the spring-triggered loop. To offer versatile placement, the Black Box can be used in all soil types, including sandy soil.
Easy to Set For your convenience, the trap comes fully assembled and ready-to use and features an easy-set design that you can activate with just one click! Once the trap is in place near the gopher activity, simply press or step down on the set lever until you hear it click. The click indicates that the kill bar is now active.

unique design
Unique Design To offer peace of mind, when installed properly inside a gopher tunnel, all the traps moving parts are located safely below ground away from children and pets. It’s a great alternative to conventional wire claw and box traps, as well as chemicals and poisons.
How to Use
  1. Remove and expose the active mound or tunnel. Peel back the lawn to preserve it for use after catching the gopher.
  2. Remove just enough dirt to fit the trap. For best results, position two traps back to back.
  3. Set the trap by using two thumbs or by stepping on the set lever until it clicks into place.
  4. Place the traps in the tunnel. Trap opening must be level with the bottom of the tunnel.
  5. Cover the trap with loose soil so it appears as if it is part of the runway.
  6. After the trap has fired, remove the gopher if desired.

Not as Good as the Original By Paul
I was a huge fan of the original black box trap. I had a terrible problem with chipmunks and squirrels in my yard. Nothing against them personally but they destroyed all our potted plants each year digging them up. I tried all the common repellents and nothing worked. The original black box would easily kill chipmunks and squirrels. The new design however is far less effective. If I had to guess it is the trigger. The original was a wire and the new is big wide paddle. They didn't notice the wire and would set it off before they knew it. With the extra wide paddle type trigger they see it and avoid it.

Just from the looks I didn't buy it! By Gopher Hunter

I have been catching gophers at this house for 30 years. Just in the last three weeks I caught 22 gophers, the worst season I can remember, so I know traps. I've had the wooden box traps, cinch traps from Victor and another maker, the black tube traps, the Victor black box trap, and a couple other types. I've had good luck with the old Victor black box trap. I saw the new model and shook my head. It looks like a fragile contraption, something I chose to stay away from, and the reviews are confirming my suspicions. The mechanism looks like a rat trap I have, which I did not have good luck with.

Low quality workmanship By Farmer
I agree with the trapper. These are crap. Please bring back the model 0625. Bought 10. The first two fell apart the first time I set them. Trip mechanism just fell off and the spring popped out. Please bring back the old model. They were fabulous and better than any trap I have ever used. If I could give these a 0 I would. The old ones I would give a 5+

Poorly designed By S
Broke before it even went in the ground. Older models are way better and were easy enough to set. Good in theory, but poorly made and/or designed. Buy the older ones if you can find them. This new style isnt good at all

Does not work By Azvoco

I have used the previous Black Box design 0625 and it was a very effective trap. This one 0626) is not. I am experienced at using these and over several weeks, I have not caught one gopher with the pair I bought. . At the same time, my older Black Boxes have caught many . When in stock, get the older version.

Worked like a champ on a squirrel that broke into my greenhouse. By Nomebear

I used this to eliminate a squirrel and it worked within minutes after bating it peanut butter and dried fruit. Up to this point I had tried everything to do a catch and release, but nothing worked because the squirrel was smarter than I. He even had the nerve to taunt me through the widow, called me stupid and inept. But i had the last laugh with the help of The Black Box.

Worthless By Tesa

My neighbor recommended these. I have not caught one gopher, and they are hard to set (one needs to enlarge the hole), it's not easily visible if a gopher has been trapped, it is recommended that one use two simultaneously, etc. I have had much better success with my Cinch traps.
