Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PRECIOUS10129 BEST CATCH EVER!
I am a single woman living in a pre-war nyc apartment where I typically average one mouse a year but for some strange reason last week I've caught my fourth mouse this year! I caught two on a glue board and two with this claw trap. I prefer the claw trap for it is clean and instant. I don't care that the mouse is still alive for it shouldn't have invaded my space anyway! With the glue traps the mice would slide or wiggle itself off whereas with this claw trap it is trapped and I welcome that! I call a child neighbor of mine to immediately dispose and all is well again until next time.
This week I am having my super plug up the holes behind my stove since that's where they're entering (and I never use it) and hopefully give me a break. In the meantime I just purchased 10 more packs - yes packs! I do not want to run the risk of this item being sold out or discontinued since I will never reuse a soiled trap. Thanks Home Depot!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ews2001 Not super impressed
The first trap broke on its own, the parts that enable the trap to say "set" failed and I couldn't reset the trap to use again. The second trap had been set for a week (sneaky rat that only comes around infrequently), I went out to check on the trap and it had snapped shut, but no dead rats. I think I'm gonna try some competitors traps, I just can't rely on these.

this little rat trap is a killer! when it snaps on them, that's it! almost cuts the little vermin in half, then toss in trash can.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by optoko Easy to use and reliable
Over the years, field mice and large rats have made their home in a storage area in my yard. The sticky traps would catch the small mice, but the large rats were always a problem. This Rat Trap is great! The beauty is that it is easy and safe to set....and just as easy to release and dispose of the dead rat. The problem with the traditional traps is that it is almost as dangerous to set as it is for the rat. I've caught two large rats in the past few weeks that I have had this trap.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy Best rat trap ever!
Had two rats and set two traps. Both dead next morning no mess no fuss. Looked humane as well - they didn't feel at thing. Score - humans 2; rats 0. Reset them and looking for more!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nobody Works - but not as reliable for multiple uses
Killed a rat last night with one of these. Dead as can be. The little bait pot thing is a good idea. It would be nice if they were more durable, but they will hold up for at least a few rats. I will be getting some old fashioned wooden ones as well since these are on the spendy side.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by knowwhatiwant Easy, effective and clean
I bought this primarily for the chipmunks that preferred my home rather than the woods and it works great. I was finding one in the trap everyday, much more effective than other methods I tried. With the hole in the business end, It is easy to bait. With the squeeze-to-set design, it is easy to set, with no danger of having it snap on your fingers. That same design allows you to empty the trap without touching the varmint. The only problem I found is the local stray cat, who apparently walked off with a chipmunk while it was still in the trap, so now I have to buy another one. This time I'm going to anchor the trap, so it doesn't disappear.
