Victor® Metal Pedal Mouse Trap - 24 Traps
The original wooden snap trap—the Victor® Metal Pedal Mouse Trap—is also the world’s #1 selling mouse trap. Its superior quality and effectiveness are the reason we’ve sold more than 1 billion snap traps around the world. And why professional pest control companies have made them their trap of choice. Trusted to control mice for more than 115 years, this trap delivers clean, instant rodent control.
Victor® Metal Pedal Mouse Traps are made in the USA from environmentally responsible, Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified wood. The FSC promotes the responsible management of forests worldwide for future generations. So this environmentally friendly purchase is one you can depend on.
When a rodent triggers the metal pedal, the trap immediately springs closed to kill the mouse on contact. Then, simply lift the rugged metal kill bar to dispose of the body. The trap can be disposed of, or reused many times over at your discretion.
Victor® Metal Pedal Mouse Traps are perfect for use anywhere in the home, indoors or out, and are ideal for placing along runways where mice like to travel, or anywhere else you see signs of mouse activity. It is safe to use around children and pets because it contains no poisons or chemicals, but we recommend that you use caution. For maximum effectiveness, place traps along walls at 2 to 3 foot intervals.
The Metal Pedal is easy to set and use. Here’s how:
- Remove the arm bar from the staple.
- Move the arm bar to the back of the trap so it hangs over the back of the trap.
- Bait the trap with peanut butter, chocolate, hazelnut spread or anything high in protein. Place the bait on the metal bait pedal using a Q-Tip, toothpick or another tool to mask your human scent.
- Pull the kill bar back and hold it in place with your thumb.
- Swing the arm bar over the kill bar and latch the bent end of the arm bar into the notch on the metal pedal as shown. Slowly release pressure from the kill bar until the arm bar has fully engaged and holds the kill bar securely.
- Place the trap wherever you’ve seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents like to travel. The baited end of the trap should be placed flush against the wall.
- After the mouse is caught, properly dispose of the dead rodent. The trap can either be discarded or reused.

Review RatePlastic is Better
I found the copper triggered traps to be incredibly hard to use and simply gave up on them and went to one of Victor's yellow plastic traps. They work. The copper ones are too hard to set.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateExcellent trap. Fix for missing bait.
Excellent trap. After using these traps for a number of years I found something that really helps (maybe it was written somewhere but why read if you don't need to....). The piece of the pedal that stands 90 degrees to the pedal and contains the tab under which the trigger bar hooks, is sometimes bent so it is no longer 90 degrees but more like 60 or 75. Bending this part of the pedal makes the difference between catching a mouse or just losing the bait.
Review RateWorks 100% of the time
The oldest and still the best. Works 100% of the time. Key is shoving the peanut butter (or other bait) inside the baitholder tube - don't slather your bait all over the pedal.
Review RateHow to build a cheap better mouse trap
At first I had many problems with mice eating the peanut butter without setting off the trap... Then I began putting the bait under the bait holder instead of in it...Works every time!!! Victor, if you flip the bait holder down instead of up I guarantee it will work every time...
Review RateMice cannot win.
Score was me, 4, mice 0. A Victor-y.
Review RateBest Victor mouse trap is the classic Metal Pedal mouse trap. Best rat trap is the Metal Pedal Rat trap.
By far the best mouse trap out there is the original victor snap trap with the metal bait pedal. I see some reviews not positive for this trap, and I don't understand how they can say that. I do not use peanut butter, it tends to get licked off. I do use a sticky chocolate bar like Oh Henry, or Snickers. The chocolate bar sticks firm on the bait pedal because of the caramel, and peanuts do help. Try changing the bait and you will be happy with the classic snap trap. Also if you are using a Victor Rat trap with the metal bait pedal, slide a small piece of slim jim, or pepperoni stick and it works every time, you never lose the bait, and gets 'em right on the neck for a quick kill.
Review RateNot as good as the victor red bar
No these are not good traps compared to the victor red bar ones. I try to set them as sensitive as possible but still the mice eat the bait and without triggering them. So go for the other ones..Response From Mosquito Magnet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We recommend baiting traps with only the amount of bait that will fit on the end of a toothpick. This way the rodents do not have the opportunity to eat and run. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any questions.
Review RateTraps work great
