also the world’s No. 1 selling rat trap for one simple reason – it works. Its superior quality and
effectiveness are the reason Victor® has sold more than 1 billion snap traps around the

Quick and Effective
The Victor® Metal Pedal Rat Trap makes rodent control easy with its simple, straightforward
design and instant results. Once a rodent triggers the pedal, the trap immediately springs closed to
eliminate the pest. After a catch, simply throw away the entire trap for quick cleanup or dispose of the rat
and reuse the trap.
How to Set the Victor® Metal Pedal Rat Trap
Release the Arm Bar - Remove the staple and move it so the arm hangs over the back of the
Bait the Trap - Apply a high-protein bait, such as peanut butter or hazelnut spread, to the
metal bait pedal. Use a Q-tip, toothpick or other tool to avoid transferring your scent.
Hold Securely - Pull the kill bar back and hold it in place with your thumb.
Set the Trap - Swing the arm bar over the kill bar and latch the bent end of the arm bar
into the pedal's notch. Slowly release pressure from the kill bar until the arm bar holds the kill bar
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 of the trap flush
against the wall.
Target Unwanted Rodents
Victor® Metal Pedal Rat Traps are a time-tested solution for capturing the rats that have
invaded your home or business. Rodents are able to sneak inside buildings through small spaces where they
can spread disease and destroy your property.
"Wow what a great product! I thought I needed a professional to get rid of my rat problem, but a few Victor rat
traps get the job done. I don't know about other Victor products as the classic rat trap is my 1st purchase, but
man does it work well! Just bait it with some peanut butter and these rodents don't stand a chance against the
power of the kill bar. 10/10 product, thank you guys for providing us with such a cheap and effective way to
make our lives better!"
