Item Information

Anyone who has ever struggled to set a mole trap will appreciate how effortless it is to activate the Deadset Mole Trap. The trap boasts an ergonomically designed, easy grip handle and an oversized activator plate that can be pushed into the tunnel by hand or foot, making it the easiest-to-set trap on the market. Precision-Built Triggering System for Quick Kill the dead set trap contains a patented, precision-built triggering system that is activated by the slightest movement. When underground movement is detected, the spears are thrust into the ground, quickly killing the mole. Ready, Set, Go the dead set mole trap comes fully assembled and ready-to-use. Trap Like a Pro Before setting the trap, water the lawn to bring the moles food source (earthworms, grubs and insects) up near the ground surface. The next step is to locate active tunnels. Flatten tunnels by walking on them and then wait a day. If the tunnel rises up, it's active. This is where the trap should be placed. When setting a plunger-style mole trap, make sure the spears can move freely through the ground when the trap is triggered. Test the Deadset Trap by pulling up on the handle to set the trap and then pushing down on the trap release lever located on the side of the trap. This will drive the spears into the ground. Raise and lower the trap until the spears are unobstructed by roots or rocks.

  • Patented design
  • Easiest trap on the market to set

Sweeney's Deadset Mole Trap is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stakes broke I received 3 of these traps from a coworker who bought them and never used them. I've caught many moles using them. Make sure to fire the trap 3 or 4 times over the tunnel so that the spikes go into the soil unimpeded. The stakes on 2 of the traps broke after a cpl months. I drilled a hole in arm that the stake was attached to and, used 4" galvanized spike nails to hold the traps in place. Problem solved for the broken stakes..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Short Lived Easy to use, and it works well until it breaks. As others have said, the plastic ground spikes break off prematurely. Mine was only a few months old when I relocated it into an active tunnel, pressed it into the ground and SNAP. It didn't hit any obstruction, just snapped a spike at the base. Plastic fatigue? Weak point? Come out with an updated version with the problem fixed and I'll give it another try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome trap!! I purchased one of these at the store and loved the ease of setting it. Them I started ridding my yard of the little tunnel diggers. So I purchased 2 more and have now not seen evidence of any mole activity for a while. I finally found an easy trap to set that actually works.
