The Victor® Electronic Rat Trap uses a high-voltage shock to kill rats quickly and humanely. It is very easy to use; simply bait, place, turn on and empty. The trap kills one rat per setting, and can kill up to 50 rats per set of 4 "C" batteries (not included). Disposal is easy, too – offering a no-touch, no-see experience.
Note: Not recommended for outdoor use
Easy to Use
The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is extremely easy to use. Simply bait, place, turn on and empty. The trap is equipped with advanced smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters the trap.
Once inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and jolting the rat with a 7,000 volt shock. Since rats can restart their hearts after an electric shock, this trap applies a continuous shock for two minutes to ensure a complete, humane kill.
After the rat is dispatched, the trap’s indicator light flashes green for up to 24 hours to indicate a kill. If the trap has low batteries, the light will flash red.
No-see, No-touch Experience
To dispose of the rat, just throw the rodent into the rubbish without ever having to see or touch it. The trap can then be reset and reused, or discarded if you prefer. To reset, add more bait, then place and turn the trap on. The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is suitable for use anywhere indoors, or anywhere it’s not exposed to the elements. The trap doesn’t use poisons or chemicals, it’s safe to use around children and pets when used as directed.
The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is easy to set and use. Here’s how:
Remove the battery cover. Insert 4 "C" batteries.
Replace the battery cover.
Bait the trap through the hole in the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, bacon, dry pet food, nuts, etc. Be sure to use a cotton bud, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.
Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The trap should be placed lengthwise against the wall with the entrance hole nearest the wall.
Turn on the trap – a green light will blink once showing the trap is working properly.
A blinking green light will indicate a kill. Dispose of the dead rodent, bait, reset and place for continued rodent control.

Victor® Electronic Rat Trap
Q: What position should the switch be in to turn it on? A: For the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap (model M240), the on position is a dash “-“ and the off position is an “O”.
Q: Is the buzzing/clicking normal? A:The buzzing and slight clicking sound with the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is normal during the start-up of the trap. When you first turn the trap on, the green light will blink momentarily and then you will hear the buzzing or a slight clicking sound indicating that you trap is working properly and starting up.
Q: How do I bait it?/What should I use to bait it? A: To bait the Electronic Rat Trap, first make sure the trap is turned off. Place the bait along or on the back wall of the trap. Be sure to use gloves or a tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap. We’ve carefully researched dry pet food and found it an excellent lure. Other dried baits (nuts, dehydrated fruit, etc.) can also work well. Goopy Bait Note: Please don’t place moist or goopy bait in your Electronic Rat Trap unless you place it in a plastic container, like a medium plastic bottle cap, and then slide it to the back of your Electronic Rat Trap. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.).
Q: How do I clean the trap? A: Through repeat use and baiting, dust and debris can settle on the metal plates inside the trap, so we recommend that you clean your trap between each use. To clean the trap:
1. Turn the power switch OFF and remove the batteries;
2. Get a shallow disposable tray into which your Electronic Rat Trap can fit;
3. Fill the tray with approximately one-inch of warm water and a squirt of unscented dish detergent;
4. Immerse the lower portion only of your Electronic Rat Trap in the pan for one hour;
5. Use a small, disposable, soft brush to gently clean around the metal plates;
6. Gently flush out the bottom of the Electronic Rat Trap with fresh water (no water in the upper compartment, please!);
7. Allow the Electronic Rat Trap to air dry completely (no air compressors!);
Q: Can it be used outdoors? A: The Electronic Rat Trap is recommended for indoor use only. This trap was designed and manufactured to be used indoors and not exposed to the elements. If this trap is used outside, the unit could potentially short out due to weather conditions, such as rain.
