Easy to Bait:
Place peanut butter in bait cup. A special bait cup and trip paddle make it nearly impossible for rats to steal bait without getting trapped.
Easy to Set:
Place trap in a problem area, on a flat surface, preferably near a wall. With both thumbs, pull back slowly on upper bar until it locks firmly in catch. Trap is set when strike bar is in upright position.
Easy to Dispose of Rat:
To dispose of rat, simply pull back on the upright bar until the rat is released.
Snap-E Mouse Trap is escape-proof and you never have to touch another mouse. Snap-E Mousetraps are easy to use and made to last. Use them year after year. They're safe, simple and sanitary. Steel and durable polystyrene materials make them tough. Smart engineering - including a larger trip paddle and strike bar - makes them work every time.
While these traps appear to be well designed, with a well holding the bait surrounded by the trigger, somehow my mice manage to take the bait without getting caught. I've found them un-baited, tripped and not but no mouse. I don't know what else to try.
Great mouse trap by FuzzyLuvr from PA01/25/2012
Although it kills me to kill mice, I live on farmland and get overwhelmed by them. With my ferrets and dogs, I do not want to risk rabies, etc. Plus they are dirty (if not kept in cage as pets). This is the BEST brand of mouse trap. The other wooden ones do not work as well. I'll leave that comment as is.
best purchase ever by PP in KC01/13/2012
These are the best work better than all others we have tried~ easy to set and discard little critters.
Best Mouse Trap on the Market! by Midwest09/29/2009
This is the only trap on the market that really works, as the old traps did. They are easy to set and within a day, we had trapped those the mice that eluded the other traps.
I too HIGHLY recommend them.
Only effective mouse trap left! by Mark Gnaster08/12/2009
I've been using this mousetrap for the last ten years or so, and it's the only one I've found effective in killing field mice which invade my house some way or another every year. I HIGHLY recommend it!
