Humane capture of mice in your home or business is easy with this Victor® TIN CAT® Mouse Trap. This large, poison-free mouse trap captures mice in a hands-free, non-lethal manner, letting you release them into the wild. The inconspicuous design makes it ideal for a business, and the secure construction keeps curious children or pets in your home away from the trap.
Easy to Use
This Victor® Mouse Trap is simple to use. Put a bit of peanut butter inside the trap and fasten the lid. Place the trap or traps near where you see mouse traffic and wait. This larger trap can hold up to 30 mice before it needs to be emptied, making it ideal for larger infestations.
One mistake many people make is to use too few traps. The most mice are captured in the first night after the trap is placed; afterward, those that remain are more cautious. Using plenty of traps means you can end the infestation quicker. You'll know when you've captured most or all when you stop seeing fresh droppings. One the traps are full, simply follow your local regulations regarding animal release and let them go far away from your home.
No Poison or Snapping Parts
Victor® TIN CAT® mouse traps are free of poisons and snapping parts, making them a good choice to use in homes with children or pets. The larger traps are also ideal for businesses and can be placed in drop ceilings, near coolers, and anywhere else mice tend to congregate. They're more sanitary than other traps because the mice are fully enclosed in the secure metal box.
Can Be Placed Indoors or Out
These Victor® traps are designed to be used inside or out. Use under furniture, inside cabinets, in garages or even in ceilings and attics to end indoor infestations. Outside, place one near a known entry point of your home or business. These larger-sized traps may also be used in dorms or multifamily housing units to control larger-scale infestations.

"I had a family of mice living inside of my piano. The first night Tin Cat® caught all 8 mice. I then felt better letting them go in a strange place knowing they had friends with them."

Decided to try it and was thrilled with the results! Happy with our suspected two mice in the trap by the next morning, but when we took it to the woods there were nine field mice and all completely unharmed!!
5 starts for the Tin Cat; over 30 years,. BUT one star to Victor.com/Amazon for not supplying the outside dimensions of Tin Cat (in 8 photographs) which are crucial for some of us working in tight areas.
Works well when new. Not real long life, but effective for a while.

Works well when new. If you don't clean it every day, mouse piss wrecks the mechs.
I would say daily cleaning is required if you get more than one a day.
Too bad they didn't make the moving parts from stainless. Maybe controlled destruction?
Not the best for serious mouse problems. Not sure what product is. Maybe Commercial?
Turns into a feeder if a door sticks.
doesnt work at all. The noise of the flapper scares the mice away. I watched as a mouse sniffed it but as soon as he went to enter the noise scared him. I left it out for several days and mice avoided it. Also its a tight fit for average mouse. Im not talking rats.
Question: why did it only work once? Now let’s them have buffet.

I bought this 3-4 years ago when I ran out of kill traps. But I never needed it because I saw no more signs of mice. Until we were gone for 2 weeks recently…came home to mice droppings and shredded paper. Finally opened and used the live trap and caught one the 1st night. Released it 3 miles away. Set it out again the next 2 nights but nothing. Decided to change food, opened lid and it was full of droppings. How are the mice getting in and out? Looks fine to me. Caught the 1st one.
The springs on the entrances of my brand new tin cat are so strong that only Mighty Mouse could possibly get in. I have used these traps in the past with a different entry that worked well. This one, however is useless!
I purchased four of these traps - two for home and two for our travel trailer. I've baited and positioned all in accordance with the instructions. It has been at least six months and not a single mouse caught (found mouse signs so we do have at least one). I decided to check out the trap door mechanism and found you have to be a 20 pound mouse to even lower the ramp. No wonder I wasn't catching them. I guess I got a pack of expensive duds. Check out how easy or difficult the ramps are before placing them. Too late for me to return them. Wish I'd knew...
