The original wood-based wire snap trap, the Victor Easy Set Rat Trap, provides instant rodent control and is safe for household use. For effective rat control, each rat trap comes pre-baited with a large, scented plastic 'Swiss cheese' trip pedal. The large pedal of this rat trap is easily activated - both by rodent interest in food and through accidental contact as rats scamper across the floor - to ensure maximum trapping. Once a rodent triggers the pedal, the rat trap immediately springs closed to eliminate the pest on contact. The rat trap can then be easily disposed of for quick and clean removal. This trap require no chemicals or poisons, so it is an ideal rat control device for use around food, water, children and pets.
