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 or anything high in protein like chocolate
or hazelnut spread to the metal pedal on the trap as shown. Be sure to use a q-tip,
toothpick, or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the
trap. Pull the kill bar back, and hold it in place with your thumb. Take the arm
bar over the kill bar, and latch the end of the arm bar on the metal pedal as
shown. Place the trap where you’ve seen signs of rodent activity or along the
wall where rodents primarily travel. The end of the trap where the metal pedal is
baited should be placed flush against the wall.

  1. My latch will not catch, I keep almost snapping my fingers. This has been an all day ordeal. What am I doing wrong????

  2. My problem with the mouse traps is that the trigger requires too much pressure for the mouse to spring the trap so the mice are eating the bait off the pedal but the trap is not being activated. I don't have this problem with Victor rat traps. For some reason there seems to be a definite difference in quality between the mouse traps and rat traps. Unfortunately, often the mice eat the bait off the rat traps and set the rat traps off but the mice are too small to be killed by the rat traps. Sorry, but at this point I cannot recommend Victor mouse traps.

  3. Am I the only one who has a problem setting the armbar to the end copper thing. It keeps snapping back at me. I don't want to use poison because I have other animals but it's coming down to that

  4. I love these old style Victor traps. Simple, cheap, and effective. I found two victims this morning. Hoping for more tonight. πŸ‘

  5. FYI – I've heard crunchy peanut butter is more effective than regular peanut butter. Takes the mice more effort to eat the crunchy stuff, and therefore will make it more likely they'll set the trigger.

  6. I just set all four traps with the assistance of my mother. We both wore gloves and used chunky peanut butter for some chewiness. We tried the humane traps with little success. Now it's time to go for the kill. RIP mice. I'm sorry, little ones, but it's time to go. Nothing personal. At least your little bodies will see nature again and continue the circle of life by decaying and becoming part of the earth.

  7. I used a think chicken bone to test it, cracked it like an egg shell. Just waiting for victims. Bought 4 yesterday at Walmart.

  8. These traps are garbage unless you just wanna feed your mice peanut butter. I’ve had 4 traps cleaned out of peanut butter and not 1 kill

  9. Every day I've been catching a mouse with these traps. They're great. Once you get the hang of latching the trigger, they are very effective. You don't even need much bait. Just a thin coating of peanut butter does the job.

  10. I put a piece of cheese or mold tootsie roll around the bar and not the copper part where the bar latches and that has worked better then any other method

  11. Glue a peanut on it works way better ! Hot glue stick from a dollar store works the best just melt it with a lighter.

  12. These work much better than the plastic ones….the metal can be bent for more sensitive trap…. perfect those pesky bastards……I will Only buy these
