Big Snap-E Rat Trap by Kness

  • 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.

    Truly the better rat trap
    November 11, 2016
    Such a superior product. So easy to set. I think the best design element is that you can so easily remove the catch without getting near the mess. Plenty of testimonials on YouTube.

    Also to keep pets and children out of them, they fit perfectly inside a Tomcat rat bait station. A perfect killer combo. (Not the rat killer II or the rodent station)

    Best Trap I've Found
    May 22, 2016
    I got a rat infestation on our farm, and they multiplied mercilessly. Because of chickens and our Cats and Dogs, I didn't want to use poisons. A friend gave me one Kness Snap-E trap, and it worked flawlessly, infinitely better than either of the popular types I was trying. I got three more, and I had no instances of the trap "ghost tripping" without catching. They were clean and easy to both set and unload. In a week, I caught 20 rats, and 17 of them were with the Kness, whereas 3 other traps only captured 3 rats. Problem solved - for now...

    The Snap-E Trap works like a charm. Took me a while to figure the right bait and placement since the rats were ignoring the Trade Joe's Peanut Butter. Turned out fresh cut apple works well. But has to be placed tightly in the bait cup. If it is placed loose the rat is able to eat it without triggering the trap. I had a motion detection security camera pointed at the trap to see what exactly happens. The younger rats just try to grab the apple and get trapped very quickly. The mature rats take their time to walk around and look at the trap very closely. There is one rat that seemed to know how the trap worked and gently pressed on the trigger plate to test it ... too late!

    Best Rat Trap

    It works so much better than those old fashioned wooden rat traps. They are not able to get away with the bait and cleaning the trap is really easy as well.

    Its just an awesome trap, no fear of crushing your thumbs when setting the trap, the "bait" is in a cup so as soon as they touch the "paddle" the rats are toast!!!!!

    Yes, there IS a better mouse/rat trap

    I have used these for 7 years in an open space area trapping rats, squirrels, etc. around my house and yard. Very effective and efficient. Somebody was thinking to invent this trap. The best part is that unlike a conventional wood trap this sets positive and doesnt go off while you are trying to set it, ruining your whole ^%$#$%^ day. Chunky peanut butter is sufficient bait. Easy to clean, reusable, etc. Can't recommend too highly.
