Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap – A New Twist on A Classic Design Simplify your rodent control routine with the Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap. Using the original wooden snap trap design with an improved larger trip pedal to ensure higher catch rates, this trap will help you to effectively eliminate rodents around your household or business. Two settings, Firm and Sensitive, allow you to control the sensitivity of the trap. For the best accuracy and outcome, we recommend setting the trap somewhere between these two settings. In addition, these traps require no chemicals or poisons.Expanded Trigger Plate The Easy Set® Mouse Trap enhances the classic snap trap design by adding a large plastic trigger plate to ensure higher catch rates. The expanded size means it can be easily activated both by rodent interest in food and through accidental contact as mice scamper across the floor.Easy 4 Step Setup For your convenience, the Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap is very easy to use. Get your trap setup by following these four simple steps:
Location, Location, Location Set the baited trap in areas where you have noticed high levels of rodent activity. Rodents tend to travel along walls, so placement in this location often works best. For maximum effectiveness, use multiple traps, placed at 2 to 3 foot intervals to increase results. Place the trap with the baited end flush against the wall.Quick and Effective Once a rodent triggers the pedal, the Easy Set® Mouse Trap immediately springs closed to eliminate the pest on contact. After a catch, simply lift the kill bar to dispose of the mouse and reuse the trap or, dispose of the entire trap for quick, clean removal. It’s your decision!How to Set the Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap Watch and see for yourself just how easy it is to use the Victor® Easy Set® Mouse Trap! Just follow the simple step-by-step instructions."BEST TRAP ON THE MARKET! I purchased the easy set traps because of the tension adjustment (either hard or soft) I have tried other traps and even using a side-by-side comparison, the Victor traps captured the rodent every time. Victor is the only trap I'll buy from now on. It works, it's durable and easy to set!"

- Release the Arm Bar - Remove the staple and move it so the arm hangs over the back of the trap.

- Hold Securely - Pull back the kill bar and hold it securely with your thumb.
- Set the Trap - Place the arm bar over the kill bar and secure it under the plastic pedal. 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, but trip very easily.

Review RateGo back to metal
Dear Victor Mousetrap engineers and product managers, The plastic bait paddle is way too smooth to hold the trigger in place. I find myself having to prop the paddle up with a leaf or paper to set the trap. Terrible design. Go back to the old notched metal design please!!!!Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Hello Jim - Thank you for sharing your experience with this trap. We apologize for the trouble when setting it and recommend viewing our instructional video for help with this trap. Don't fret, we still make our original metal pedal traps and are happy to offer replacements of this style if you are unable to get the Easy-Set® traps set. Reach out to us at email@example.com with any questions.
Review RateGreat job
Did the job have to be very easy when setting it take a few times to figure out but no problem since then like them much better than the old style
Review RateGood trap
I have been using them for years. I reuse them after a catch about 95% of the time. I will admit they are sometimes tricky to get to set but once you get the hang of it they work fine. They are very effective. I never add bait to them but just sit the yellow paddle against the wall. I'm sure not everyone would like them due to the small issue of getting them to set.
Review RateWorst trap redesign
Whoever it was that came up with this redesigned idea has no idea of what the trap is supposed to do. Firm vs Sensitive. The plastic is so slippery when you put anything with oil ie..Peanut butter. Its impossible to set. the metal latches were much better.Absolutely Junk ! Unfortunately - We can't buy the old metal ones because our local Canadian Tire stopped selling those for these. Just scrap these useless traps. We have moved on to another brand until these are out of our store.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi Mak! We are sorry to hear about your experience with this trap! When setting the traps, the bait should not be coming in contact with the arm bar that is being set. The arm bar should be set under the area marked Firm or Sensitive, not above it in the area where the bait is set. For more tips on how to set this trap, we recommend taking a look at our Instructional Video. Additionally, our classic Metal Pedal Traps can be purchased on our site here as well as at any of these retailers. For any additional questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-584-2867.
Review RateTrick tip setting trap
Took me a while to figure out how to set them, but there is a trick. When you pull the metal bar back and set the pin, take a regular pen (one you write with) and set it behind the yellow bait holder/box lifting well beyond the set position. After you set the pin into the yellow holder then remove the pen and the trap is set. Couldn't get them to set before that, then had no issues at all doing it that way. Easier on my fingers too.
Review Rateone star or less
Your new plastic pedal traps are great if you possess 3 hands. Otherwise, for those of us with 2 hands, the old metal pedal is superior. Please junk these new gizmos.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateSucky traps! Buyers beware!!
These traps suck!! Mice eat the bait and don't set off the traps. The old design works so much better...Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. When baiting these traps it is extremely important to use only a small, pea-sized amount of bait as larger amounts of bait may make the traps less sensitive. We still do manufacture our metal pedal design. Please reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Review RateThese are very difficult to set, old design far superior
These are very difficult to set even on the "firm" side. The metal bar will not stay in place. I bought 12 and 3 would not set at all. The others required multiple tries to get them to stay. In the process my thumb got snapped and was bleeding. Very poor design, will not buy again.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot an improvement
I will take the old standard metal trip over the plastic any day of the week! Better instructions are needed with the product as well. No indication of sensitivity setting on the package.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

I agree with the people who said these traps SUCK. I tried everything to set these pieces of junk, almost impossible to set. I put the bar to the firm side but as soon as you take the pressure off the trip rod slides to the other and the traps trip. Couldn’t get even one out of the 4 pack from Lowes. ABSOLUTE JUNK AND WASTE OF MONEY!!!!Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
