Trap Like A Pro

Before setting the trap, water the lawn to bring the moles food source (earthworms, grubs and insects) up near the ground surface. The next step is to locate active tunnels. Flatten tunnels by walking on them and then wait a day. If the tunnel rises up, it’s active. This is where the trap should be placed.

When setting a plunger-style mole trap, make sure the spears can move freely through the ground when the trap is triggered. Test the Deadset Trap by pulling up on the handle to set the trap and then pushing down on the trap release lever located on the side of the trap. This will drive the spears into the ground. Raise and lower the trap until the spears are unobstructed by roots or rocks.

Customer Reviews

It was very easy to set and the instructions were very good.
JC in OKC
You know how cats can get into things and places where they are not supposed to be and if one dug around the trap with his paw, he might get nailed.
Patrick W. Crabtree
One of the two traps ordered can not be set; it will not catch/hold the trigger.

Size Name: 6
This is this the best mole trap I have used yet. In two months that I have owned them (4), I have successfully skewered five moles on my four settings. For 20 years I have lived in S.E. MN sorrounded by woods, cow pasture and a trout stream. I have successfully used the conceptually similar traps made by victor, same as the 9011, killing countless moles over the years, but have always hoped for the creation of a better design; the 9015 has exceeded my hopes on nearly every point.
Spring: I was certain this trap was going to be a killer the moment I took it out of the box and put tension on the spring. The last mole I killed was near a maple tree. I had to put a few pounds of pull to get the tines freed from the root, while the tines on the other side had the mole skewered. The spring is most excellent in torque deliverance.
Body housing: The composite body seems quite adequately heavy duty- which it must be in order to withstand the kineticl energy this spring transfers. They have included on the body a winged footpeg on each side of the base to assist setting in harder soils. This has been helpful for me when setting near trees and close to the gravel driveway.
Shaft: The shaft is adequately heavy gauge for the job so far. Note, I say this as a good thing as I beleive my prior use traps were mildly under gauged. Also, a rating of outstanding would require a little heavier gauge yet. Also, while so far deadly and appropriate, I wish the designers would install greater shaft support to prevent bending and redirection of the tine plate as it plunges into the earth. This current design may prove to be adequate for the long term but only time will tell.
Fourth: The handle is most excellent.- safety, size, grip, comfort. Same materisl as body.

Size Name: 6 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a mole trap but it doesnt really trap them it kills them dead. Just so you know if you are looking for some way to trap them without hurting them this is not it. This trap is very simple to use. You just find one of their mole tunnels in the yard and push this into the ground and set it. The mole while running down the tunnel will set off the trap and the spikes slam down into the mole and kill it. You then dispose of the dead mole and set it up again to get rid of more moles. Very easy to use and it really works to get rid of your moles.

Size Name: 6 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First off - my mole issue is very mild, maybe one or two tunnels a year, at most. I learned awhile back that MOLES EAT GRUBS. As with any critter, eliminate the food source and reduce the problem. So when I applied MILKY SPORE 3 times a year, for 2 years in a row as stated on the directions, my horrendous grub issue vanished and the moles with them.

BUT, IF I still had a mole problem, this Deadset is an absolute Killing Machine. My stepsister is selling her home so she needs a NOW solution, she doesn't have the luxury to wait for 2 years for the milky spore to work. So we used this MOLE KILLING MACHINE where it's proven itself. However, be aware that you will NOT want to use this Deadset Mole Killing Machine near pets or children. The spikes are rather vicious - they WILL impale a human hand or a human foot or a dogs paw or a cats paw or that pet ferret that got loose, etc. Keep this in mind when deciding WHERE to locate the trap (er.. Killing Machine.)

Meanwhile my neighbor's mole ventured a tunnel back into my yard. Grabbed the Deadset, followed the directions to a T. Within short order... Well, there's no more mole.. and my neighbor seems pleased his tunnels have suddenly stopped forming. Gee, I wonder why ;-)

The directions per the box:
1. Water the lawn and active area (tunnels) thoroughly. A wet lawn keeps the moles food supply (grubs) close to the surface and makes it easy to place the mole trap in the ground.
2. Locate the active tunnels. Poke a 1" hole in the raised earth through to the tunnel. Wait 24 hours. If the hole is resealed the tunnel is active.
3. Press down on the raised earth with your foot, depressing the tunnel roof. Press the trap into the softened ground, then use FOOT PEGS to firmly set the trap in place.

the traps operate just fine. Easy to set. But, they have not trapped any moles yet :). My wife loves their ease of use.

Follow the directions and place this trap over the mole tunnel as soon as you find it. I've had the trap tripped in just a few hours. Only had it tripped without a catch two times. This trap kills the mole so you have the evidence to know it won't be bothering you again!!! I still have an occasional mole tunnel come under the fence from the neighbor's but as soon as I see it I set the trap. My yard is now virtually mole free!! Caution: Leaving the trap out in the weather will cause the plastic to become brittle. I did ruin one trap by forcing it into the ground and broke the legs off. The soil needs to be soft enough to easily insert and remove the trap with straight up or down motion.

Product function as described. Saw the video, easy to set. But my gopher out smart it by pushing dirt from both sides of it and crammed dirt on top of the trigger (the trigger supposed to slam the deadly spikes if pushed from below as it re=dig the collapsed tunnel.) Finally saw him the other morning pushing dirt out of a tunnel and took my Crosman 1377C (.177 air pistol with 8 pumps) and took a shot at him. Don't have a body, but haven't seen any activity for a couple of days, crossing my fingers he took a hit.
