Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks pretty; bait cup nice - does little else worthless - redesign fails to trap rodents! they crawl inside "jaws" and dig bait out of cup with their claws!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick kill, easy cleanup Had some rats chew through my hurricane supplies in my garage. Put three of these Tomcat traps in various areas. Found the sweet spot where the entry hole into my attic is. 4 rats dead in 24 hours same trap. Three rats in a 4 hour span. That included one trap killing two rats at once. Baited it with peanut butter. Clean up is easy, never had to touch the rats just opened the clamshell and the dead rats just drop out. It's a quick kill, I heard the trap go off and was up there about a minute and a half and the rat was lifeless. Thanks for making it so easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Extremely Well I had an issue for weeks; the traps that building management put in were too small. Finally, I got your product and set it. The next day, I heard a loud snap letting know it had worked. My only complaint is with disposing of it since the rat was hanging out of it. Ugh. . .I didn't reuse the trap. But I will be buying it again if the need arises!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy I bought this trap three days ago and it is broken already. I had three catches and then it broke. It is a poor design. There are two little tabs on the bottom next to the back that act as a tension for the tab. This should have been a metal spring. Needs a redesign.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to handle Caught two victims within twenty minutes. Awesome they were caught in the same trap with the same feed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Traps These rat traps are perfect to catch rats and they die instantly. I fill the built in cup with peanut butter and put the trap near where the rats come out of the field from a kennel next door. The traps are made of a sturdy composition and they are easy to set after filling the bait cup. A word of caution, when the trap snaps closed, it's very forceful so be extra cautious when setting the trap down. I am pleased with the quality, the construction and how well they catch the rats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 for 5 in day number 1 We've had a couple squirrels living in our detached garage. They have torn apart too many things to list. Tried other products with horrible results. Then I bought one of these traps. Set it up last night and woke up to a trapped squirrel. After repairing the trap it went right back to the same location. We did this throughout the day. In an 18 hour window this trap caught 5 squirrels. That was only day #1 haha. I have ONLY HIGH PRAISE for this trap. Well done Tomcat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They need to sell replacement bait holders Product works good but sometimes the trap is sprung and I loose the bait holder. Starting to get tired of buying more whole traps. Have three perfectly good ones that I can't use because they are now missing the bait holder.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New design is problematic The new design where the spring is now in the top half of the jaws is terrible. The spring easily breaks away from the plastic base. I prefer the old design with the spring at the rear of the jaws. I still have one that I use regularly. Looking around for the old design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rats Run Away with the Trap wire, stake and all I have used these traps successfully in the past but the rats now have it figure out. I set out three trips this week and 2 missing with the wire and stake. There must be a couple of rats running around with them attached to them somehow. I need to find a different trap because they have figure these out somewhat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 24 Hours Flat Yes I read the reviews and said," Yeah Right." Well let me tell you. I picked up the traps literally yesterday. We have had this rat in our house for 3 days, came in from outside. Ran around the bedroom and kitchen and my wife is threatening to move to a hotel. Well like I said, got them yesterday. Put peanut butter in trap, then nothing, until tonight. Son chased the rat into our bedroom, bulldog jumped off the bed and chased it and proof it was gone. Well I knew it would come out and go back towards the kitchen. Placed the trap on his way of escape, leashed the dog up on the bed and waited. Not 30 minutes later, SNAP! GOT HIM. Great trap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If I could give 0 stars I would. This torture device is the worst possible way to solve a rodent problem. I dont care what anyone else says, it is not strong enough to kill rats, maybe a mouse, but this is advertised for rats. I dont know how long that poor little creature suffered through freezing cold and pain before I walked out this morning to see him, trapped, completely alive and in a condition he could have survived if he could escape. Which means he would have died of dehydration in the trap which is an extremely painful way to die. Not only did the trap fail to kill the poor rat, it is light enough that he was able to move around and fight against the trap. I had to put it out of its misery which was traumatic to me because I bought this thinking it would be a humane way to dispose of the rat that's been terrorising my chickens. Waste of money, do not buy this trap. And yes if it sounds like I'm angry I am. I just had to kill one of the most beautiful wild rats I've ever seen, with my own two hands when I would rather not have had to kill him at all, but my chickens had to come first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They DO work! I had a problem with rats showing up on my patio, Tried a lot of products to get rid of them, but so far the Tomcat RatSnap Trap works best! I'm a 70 year old woman, and I've caught over 20 of them in recent months with Tomcat SnapTraps! I've tried another cheaper brand of snap traps, but the Tomcat is definitely more reliable. I bait them with peanut butter. I like that they are easy to set and easy to clean up and reuse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I had a hole in my kitchen and a rat(s) was getting inside my apartment eating bananas in the kitchen. The sealed the hole but it seemed that one of the rat got stuck inside the apartment. I put a bunch of glue traps but he was able to get the food without getting caught. Bought this trap this morning and put it in the kitchen with banana at 8:30pm. At 12:15am, I was woken up by a loud noise in the kitchen. I couldn’t believe that the rat was already trapped and dead in the trap!!! This product is amazing!!!! I’m so grateful!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New model of rat trap is terrible I was very happy with the old model of trap that had a larger space for the rat to get it's entire head in before being triggered. The new version is too small an area for a rat. The bait indentation is too close to the edges. It keeps catching them on their snouts which is a terrible way to die. I want to kill them quickly, not torture them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from works like any other trap but doesn't kill We have trapped 3 rats and each time they have been in the trap over 5 hours before we find them and have to kill them. I put them in water to drown them but the old school snap traps kill way more efficiently than these cheap plastic wanna be teeth chompers. a redesign is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's amazing & so easy! I have 4 of them. Easy to set, easy to release!!!!! I am telling everyone to definitely buy this one. So glad I discovered this in the hardware store! Won't be using anything else! Thank you so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUCCESS I have used the wooden rat traps with limited success before so when I had an uninvited rat guest appear in my kitchen, I decided to give the TomCat rat snap trap a try. Wow, I was happily surprised how easy this trap is to use. Just bait and push down and its ready to go. Easy cleanup as well. I set up

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Traps break I have 4 of them and they are fairly expensive. If you catch one rat they won’t ever work again. Waste of money , extremely disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply WORKS ! didn't want to catch my fingers in the old spring trap, or have to touch the dead rats. Saw these at Lowes and bought two to try out. After catching at least 10 rats, one of them broke and the other is still going strong. Just bought 6 more to replace the broken one (we have a lot of rats and mice around here). BEST TRAP I'VE EVER USED!!! The bate bowl is a bit too far forward though. Have woken up to the peanut butter with dog kibble basically licked out without getting the rat, but when i put it on the back of the snap peddle instead, they go in deeper and it nails them every time! Never touched a rat and reset is as easy as setting it on the floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tough Trap! Great for larger pests but not the best for small mice; the trigger spring is too stiff for the small rodents and they can walk right on top of the trigger and eat all the bait!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor kill rate Well I got this trap as an alternative to the old fashion traps. Much easier and safer to set without worrying about catching a finger in it. The results have been mixed. I have had the trap several months. I bait with peanutbutter. I have chickens so use it to control rats which are attracted to their food source. Out of 10 rats I caught in this trap only three were killed. The rest all had their feet or arms caught in it. Onetime I was left with just an arm in the trap and no rat. This leaves me with the very unpleasant task of dispatching them myself. So after giving this trap a try I am going back to the regular traps which have had a 100% kill rate for me so far which is much more humane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These actually WORK!!! I moved into my mother's old house and apparently it has a freeway for rats in it somewhere. So I bought 3 of these traps, because the little traps I found were too small to catch rats, And the wooden wire ones for rats was too hard for me to set. We have caught a ton of rats and mice in these sometimes two at a time! I do wish that we could buy replacement bait cups though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rat Trap! This trap was super easy to bait and set! Disposing of the bodies was a breeze too! Highly recommend this product when trying to get rid of rats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snapped Works good, needs to be staked down some bigger rats might take it away, but not the 2 I've gotten

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great at first but a torture chamber Now? Bought this trap last year to kill chipmunks. Efficient and easy to load and unload. However, this year it has turned into a torture chamber! Threw it away after finding a third chippy caught by a leg trying desperately to escape....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kills Half the Time So far I have caught 8 rats in 2 months with these, what bothers me 4 were killed and 4 had 1 leg trapped causing them to suffer until I had to kill them myself. I don't mind dumping the dead rats in the garbage but I don't like having to kill them myself. The pad to trigger them should be smaller so more of the rat is inside the trap so when it trips it gets more of the body and not a leg.

Will this work for chipmunks?

Asked by: Csfox
Yes. We've received many reports from customers who have successfully used the Tomcat Rat Snap Trap to capture and kill chipmunks or other small mammals who may be causing problems around their homes or farms.
