The original wood-based wire snap trap, the Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap provides instant rodent control. For effective rat control, each rattrap comes pre-baited with a large, scented plastic ‘Swiss cheese’ trip pedal. The large pedal of this rattrap is easily activated – both by rodent interest in food and through accidental contact as rats scamper across the floor – to ensure maximum trapping.

Quick, Effective, Clean
Once a rodent triggers the pedal, the rattrap immediately springs closed to eliminate the pest on contact. The rattrap can then be easily disposed of for quick and clean removal. These traps require no chemicals or poisons, so they are safe to use around food, water, children and pets when used as directed. Victor® Easy Set® Rat Traps are perfect for use anywhere in the home. These rattraps should be placed where rodents travel, such as along walls at 30 - 50 cm (2 to 3 foot) intervals.
Victor® Easy Set® Rat Trap is Easy to Use. Here’s How:
Release the arm bar from the staple.
Move the arm bar to the back of the trap so it hangs over the back of the trap.
Apply a small amount of peanut butter, bacon, dry pet food or nuts to the yellow pedal on the trap as shown. Be sure to use a cotton bud, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.
Pull the kill bar back and hold in place with your thumb.
Take the arm bar over the kill bar and latch the end of the arm bar under the yellow pedal. Please take note of the Firm and Sensitive setting. The trap will be easier to set on the firm side, but not trip as easy. The trap will be more difficult to set on the sensitive side and trip very easily.
Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The end of the trap where the yellow pedal is baited should be placed flush against the wall.
Once the rat is caught, properly dispose of the dead rodent. The trap can either be discarded or reused.

Victor® Snap Traps - Expert Tips
Location, Location, Location!
The most important rule for the effective use of traps is good trap placement location based on thorough inspections to determine the high-activity areas of rodents.
Number of Traps
The most common trapping mistake is using of too few traps. For only a couple of rats or mice, a dozen traps are not too many. For severe rat or mouse infestations, traps should be placed close together in double sets in areas of high activity.
Importance of the First Night
Statistics show that more rats and mice are trapped on the first night than on any other night.
Offer Multiple Bait Choices
When many rodents are involved, different types of baits should be used. Individuals in a rodent population forage for different types of food.
