No one likes killing, but these traps gets rid of the rats quickly, cleanly, and in a merciful manner.
Michael Pusateri
It just mutilated its leg and trapped it, leaving it to drag the trap around the garage all night.

This is THE best rat trap I've ever used! I don't have to worry about smashing my fingers by accident while trying to get it into position; to set this one you just step on the back of it (or you can squeeze it with your hand). I don't set it off by accident as I'm trying to maneuver it into position; this one isn't on a hair trigger like the old fashion kind. Meerly jostling it won't set it off. The rat can only approach from the desired side so there is no chance of him being tossed away from the trap as can happen with the old fashion kind. Best of all, there is virtually NO WAY for a rat to get to the bait without setting this thing off - every time! That's because the bait is positioned such that he must press the lever to get to it. It's also positioned such that they never get "kinda" caught. Lastly, those "teeth" pretty much insure that he's not going anywhere.

With the regular trap I had more sprung traps that caught rats. With this trap I got one within the 1st hour of setting it out, over and over and over again! It works!

I pretty much agree with everything said in the other reviews here. I've been using these for a few months and have caught seven rats so far. These traps are extremely good at catching rats -- I've never had a trap go off without catching a rat. This is important because you don't want the rats to get trap-shy.

On the other hand, it seems to be only about 50% of the time that the rat's head is inserted in the trap. I would imagine these are relatively quick kills. The other half of the time, the rat gets caught by a forelimb and can live in torment for hours or days. I happened to check a garage trap soon after a rat was caught this way, and the situation was horrifying to say the least. I ended up drowning the squeaking, terrified rat in a basin just to put it out of its misery.

I'm not deducting any stars for this because I'm not convinced that the traditional type of snap trap is any better. In other respects, these traps have it all over the traditional bar traps. They are very easy to set and never go off by accident while you're placing the traps. The bait cup is removable and well-positioned. Not only have I never had a trap go off without catching a rat, but I've also never had bait stolen.

I get the impression that trap positioning has a lot to do with the way the rat ends up getting caught. With traditional trap positioning along walls, I don't think the rat is necessarily even after the bait in many cases -- it just happens to blunder into the trap as it's going about its business. I'm hoping that with more intelligent positioning, I'll be able to reduce the number of limb-traps.

Several reviewers have reported problems with this trap, such as the trap not being strong enough to actually kill the rat. I wonder how many times this happened to each of these reviewers before they concluded the trap doesn't work properly. No trap works perfectly every time, but I've had a lot of experience with rat traps, and I can assure you this one works better than most.

I've deployed six different types of traps: two types of glue traps, the old standby classic by Victor, a knock-off of the Victor, an elaborate and beautifully designed, Japanese-made cage to trap them alive, a second kind of live trap, and the Tomcat. I've caught quite a few rats, so I can claim a little expertise on this subject.

As I said, no trap will work perfectly every time in every situation, or they wouldn't have invented so many different types--we'd all just use the classic wood-and-metal type, which doesn't cost very much, and be happy and rat-free. Each has its purpose--except for some that in my experience don't work: I haven't caught a single rat in the cheap Victor-type knock-off. In all of the others, I have, but the Tomcat has been the most successful. So I assure you, it does work, at least when I've use peanut butter as bait.

Second, it it easy to set. No need for worries about getting your fingers caught (and some of these traps can inflict some real pain). Once the trap is cocked open, it stays open; you don't have to be super-careful every time you get within two feet of it for fear it's going to snap. The bait is inserted into a removable little tube, so you can take the tube out, put in the bait, put it back in without setting the trap, or even while the trap is already set, without a problem.

We've tried just about all the traps out there - and basically, after tracking performance for about a year, the top performer in our warehouse was an old fashioned Victor Mouse Trap or Victor Rat Trap.

However, we had a trap-shy rat get inside the house. I was afraid it might be pregnant looking to nest (it *was*) and wanted to catch it quick before any pups were born. I tried D-Con poison only to learn that it could take up to 10 days for it to work, and I couldn't wait.

I set several types of traps, including this one (I paid $4.98 at Lowes) since the bait cup is large & you can put anything in it. The rat initially came upstairs to seek out some large chunk dog food, and since it was trap-shy, I thought it would be best to bait it with something familiar (the dog food is too big/heavy for a traditional trap).

After 8 days of eluding us, this method worked within 4 hours (I give as much credit to the bait as to the trap). But it did NOT kill - the neck was stuck between the teeth of the trap. In an old fashioned Victor trap, it snaps on the neck, not the head, which is instant & humane.

This was in the kitchen, I was not home, and my wife was severely traumatized. It was flopping around everywhere, bleeding and contaminating *everything* in the kitchen, peeing and pooping everywhere. It's rear claws scratched up the cabinet doors. My wife had to lock up our dog & cats, who were curious but were in harms way. Awful, awful, awful. This was hours of cleanup, and it was terribly inhumane.
