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.
