A:  Set trap by pressing set bar. You will hear a "click" when set. Please contact at 877-220-3089 for further assistance if needed.

    A:  If you hold the back like you are setting the trap, then lift the black plate where the bait is just a little and it should set. It's a hair-trigger setting so it will snap when the bait is taken, but if you lift that plate up a little it should do the job

          Q:I set this up and the bait was gone but the trap had not snapped somehow even though it was set. When I later put my finger on the lever, the trap did snap. What is going wrong here? This happened twice. (other times I did catch mice 5 dead ones, 1 alive)

          A:  My guess is that the bait was to big for the space. I used a single chocolate chip which fit perfect. The mice had to press the leaver down to get to it.

            A:  I'm not sure. I had total success. Perhaps they are coming at the bait from the back which would bypass the lever. I set mine with the lever toward the cabinet kick board and one side nestled against the refrigerator which sticks out further than the cabinets. If the mouse were running along the cabinet line, it would cross that lever to get under the refrigerator or vise versa. My bait was still there. If you are setting them up so they have to cross the lever, I don't know what the problem might be.

              A:  Worked ok used cheese for bait, check when u lock it might not be set right hard to explain.

              A:  We are not sure why the trap is not being triggered, although some mice are smarter than we give them credit for. Please contact us at 877-220-3089 for assistance if needed.

                    A:  You can put the Tomcat Press N Set Mouse Trap closer if needed. Make sure to use in areas with high mice activity such as: near refrigerators, stoves, pantries, between washers and dryers, or along baseboard.

                        Purchased to get the mouse I saw run late one night. Placed along the baseboards like instructions said. He’s managed to elude the trap consistently
                        Response from Tomcat Consumer ServicesMay 30, 2023
                        We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Tomcat Press 'N Set Mouse Trap and appreciate your feedback.
                        Trap must be horizontal (flat) to be set. This trap is not meant to be reusable as the spring or trap catch that holds the trap set could potentially be weakened and no longer work.

                        We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please reach out to us at 877-220-3089 if we can further assist. tomcat

                        Works Great
                        I set the trap at 4:30 and by 7:30 caught the mouse that was terrorizing my son and I. I had glue traps and the poison cubes set out, those didn’t work. I would recommend these. Easy to set up. Put a little piece of Reese’s on and that’s it. The disposal was a little rough. I had to build up my courage, but we got it done.

                            Not a quick death by any means
                            I purchased the Tom Cat Press ‘N Set mouse trap for its convenience of setting the trap. I mounted a camera to capture the trap in action and I have to say that death did not come quickly for the mouse. In fact, it took just under a half an hour for the mouse to die. The mechanism is not very strong, like the mouse traps of old. But in the end, it accomplished its task. I now have to find out where the mice are coming in and seal it up. I recommend with reservations.

                              Mouse stepped on it and walked away!
                              Bought this at local Home Depot and try to kill the mouse. Our camera video recorded a mouse stepped on it and walked away! The bait was all eaten and this mouse trap was not sensitive at all!

                                Caught two mice immediately
                                I live in the country and every winter we get mice in the house. I put these out yesterday evening and this morning there were two mice caught. I agree with a few of the reviewers that the cost for being disposable is high, but it worked well. So it gets a five star from me.
