Product Overview

The Victor Metal Pedal Rat Trap is the original wooden snap trap. It's 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 world. 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. 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.

Keeps on working
It took two months to trap this rat. And even after the trap was triggered, it kept on moving for a couple of hour before giving up. Got rid of the rat and set it up with the same bait.

    Works every time!!
    9 out of 8 times it worked!! Caught two with one trap!! Keep it simple. Put a minut amount of peanut butter and oil closer to the trigger.

      Sort of Works
      The rat feasted on grass seed and peanut butter then proceeded to take a dump on top of the trigger mechanism and it never went off. See photo.

      Thank you for sharing this experience. When baiting these traps, we recommend a small, pea sized amount of peanut butter. Too much bait can make the trap less sensitive. The trap is backed by a 30 day return policy. Reach out to us at 1-855-584-2867 with any questions.
        Effective if use with ingenuity!!
        I needed to watch a YouTube video to learn how to set it up. For the first 3 nights, I didn’t catch any but the peanut butter are eaten!!! Then I saw my son with a dental floss and an idea came up. I tied a tiny piece of meat that I barbecued that day to the dental floss and attached to the metal bait pedal. 2 hours later, 2 rats were caught and another at dawn. Very effective!!! I used the same bait. I don’t think rats really mind the scent of your fingers/hands!!! Picture attached for reference.

          Great product however
          Great product but on the second try, the mouse only got the peanut butter and didnt trigger. However, I caught one but still recommended the plastic one.

              Kills then instantly
              Purchased 12 traps and was using peanut butter without much success, traps were licked clean or full of ants. I may also have chipmunks that are too small to set traps off. After a couple of weeks of trial and error I found the best thing for me was Steak. I sliced a piece of steak I used ribeye( I know what a waste of a good Steak but I hate Rats) 1/4" thick and in 3/4' pieces. Use a screwdriver to bent the prong up at a 45 degree angle and push it onto the barb then push prong down with your thunb to lock it in place so they have to tug on it to get the steak, Wear rubber gloves when doing it, I found the best time to put them out is just before sundown I think they are more nocturnal. I have rats burrowing under my shed and I put traps about 8" from holes. I put out 5 traps yesterday and caught 3. The other two traps wer sprung but no kill, they may have tried to eat the bait from the wrong side and got launched. Dont get discouraged just keep trying and experiment to see what works best for you, I just ordered 10 more of these. Best thing is price I ge tthem for $1.97 each, dont even try to re-use it, just throw it away rat and all. Good luck hunting!!!!!!!

                Great, great, great product Victor Metal Pedal Rat Trap
                One morning we discovered pieces of veggies, taken from small garbage can, on the mat near the sink. Next morning we discovered small chicken bones, taken from garbage can, in the family room. We put glue traps with cheese and peanut better, left lights on and computer on, making video. Creature didn't stick to the glue traps unfortunately, though ate some food. Probably creature is stronger than glue traps designed for. Pictures from the video attached. We bought set of 2 Victor Metal Pedal Rat Traps from Home Depot. At first we put traps unset as recommended, but with with food. We left lights and computer on to make video, but creature did not come this night. Next night we set Victor Metal Pedal Rat Traps and left them with no lights nor computer. Result was great. We will put trap again to be sure creature was alone. Thank you to the Victor Metal Pedal Rat Traps and Home Depot.

                  Traps are cheap and effective. Taped one on top of my fence and another under my couch and caught two in one night. Also used the electric, WiFi trap that works great too.
