Protecta Sidekick Rat Bait Station
  • Alternate Image 1

The compact Protecta Sidekick is a prudent way to upgrade from non-tamper-resistant bait stations to a more durable tamper-resistant station. The Protecta Sidekick functions as both a bait station and monitoring station. It's vertical bait securing rods hold bait blox securely in the station, reducing the risk of accidental bait exposure to children, pets and non-target animals. The Sidekick was also designed to hold the Trapper T-Rex Rat Snap Trap which will allow you to capture rats as soon as they enter the station. One Protecta Key is included with each order.  We do sell Protecta Keys separately if you would like more than one. 

BAIT IS NOT INCLUDED.




The Protecta Sidekick also works as a monitoring station and it is specially designed to hold Trapper T-Rex Rat Snap Trap which captures rats as they enter the station. The lid on this bait station opens to the side for fast, convenient servicing, even when the station is secured and its rounded interior corners make cleaning the station easier than ever.

The image below shows the Protecta Sidekick Rat Bait Station with a T-Rex Rat Trap inside:

The Protecta Sidekick can improve the quality of rodent control practices in your home or business because now you can use your choice of bait blox with confidence knowing it is in a tamper resistant station. One Protecta key is included per order to open the bait station, and more keys may be purchased if needed.

Dimensions: 9 1/2"L x 8 3/4"W x 4 1/2"H 

Protecta Sidekick holds up to two (2) pounds of bait. BAIT IS NOT INCLUDED.

    5 of 5 stars  Protecta Sidekick Bait Station - A Godsend!
    By Dave in Portland, OR on 08/03/2011
    Verified Purchase

    Using standard Victor traps to trap rats was a problem because I didn't want to trap squirrels, dogs and kids. Plus, the rats were stealing bait without setting the traps off. Once I deployed T-Rex traps inside Protecta Sidekick Bait Stations I had found the answer. The T-Rex traps are super effective and easy to use, and the Protecta Sidekick Bait Station protects the traps from squirrels, dogs & kids. The combination of T-Rex traps and Protecta Sidekick Bait Stations is a professional solution, and I recommend them highly. Try 'em both & I think you'll like 'em too.

    3 of 5 stars  Good size but too hard to open
    By Linda in Long Beach, CA on 12/12/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I have a small yard and like the size of this station but unlocking it is just to difficult. I have resorted to using the devise (key) and prying it open at the same time with a knife. That's an unpleasant task with a dead rodent in it. Also there were no instructions included that explain how to use the key to unlock the station. While I think it's an overall good buy until the unlocking system is simplified I would not purchase another.

    4 of 5 stars  Good size but hard to open
    By Nick in La Verne, CA on 09/05/2011

    Similar to the Protecta LP but holds more bait and taller allowing more bait because it can be double stacked on each other. The key is positioned the other direction which makes it hard to open. Other than than that they are great.

    4 of 5 stars  Safe Rat Killing
    By Harry in Coal Creek Canyon, CO on 09/27/2011
    Verified Purchase

    The only way to safely set out rat traps. Keeps kids and pets away from the deadly trap. Also keeps things clean because the dead Ratatouille is inside, not out in the open for touching or eating. I used mine to fit the rat traps from Do My Own Pest Control inside. Worked well...only slight complaint is hard to open...should send detailed instruction on use of key to open.

    1 of 5 stars  Good trap bad design
    By Girard in Birmingham.AL on 04/20/2017

    This station comes with its own key that you must use to open up the bait station. 1 key for a case of stations. I lost the key so now i cant open them up anymore. Not sure if i can just purchase a key only. I shake the bait into the bait compartment.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Protecta
    By Duane in Alice, ND on 10/26/2016

    I am always worried about my pets. I think these are about as safe as you can get. They lock the bait inside as long as the cover stays closed the bait is caught and should not come out. "IF PROPERLY CHECKED OFTEN ENOUGH SO THE BAIT ISN'T EATEN OFF THE POST TO THE POINT OF FALLING OFF"! Then it could roll around and roll out the holes if a dog would get at it. Now nothing is fool proof if a pet wants to get in there bad enough, but this isn't bad.

    5 of 5 stars  Ordered units had a problem which was resolved easily
    By Bob in Olympia, wa on 12/13/2015

    I ordered a case of 6 after an animal made off with (3) of the bait stations had previously ordered, still MIA. When I got this order the posts were missing along with a key. A quick phone call resolved my problem. It was handled very professionally and quickly. I would have no problem placing another order.

QIs there a way to keep squirrels from getting into the Protecta Sidekick Rat Bait Station?

AYes, it is possible that a smaller squirrel can fit in the Protecta Sidekick Rat Bait Stations. Since squirrels and rats are similar sized, there are not really any options that will target only rats and not squirrels other than a live catch trap so if you happen to catch the squirrel you can let it go.

QDo you have more literature on the Protecta Sidekick Installation/Maintenance?
I am in charge of the ready service contract for pest control for the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. For our rodents, we use over 50 of the Protecta Sidekicks at our facility. I would like to know if there is any literature or guidelines for installing and maintaining the boxes so we can ensure our contractor is adhering to your guidelines. I am hoping your guidelines and literature will answer some of these questions. Where is the best placement of the boxes? What is the distance that should be between each box? How does the box reduce the rodent population? When should the bait be changed? How do you determine if the box is effective at its current area? Also, since I'm new to pest control, do you offer any introductory classes,seminars,webinars that will educate me in this field? Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

AWe only have the information you see available on our website. The manufacturer very well may have more information available for commercial applications. You can reach Bell Labs at 800-323-6628. We do believe that they may have videos available that would explain more on installation in commercial facilities.

QIs it possible for raccoons to get the bait inside the Protecta Sidekick Rat Bait Station?
I think I saw a raccoon trying to get the bait from inside the station, but I'm not sure if they're actually getting it or not.

A

Raccoons could get the bait if it has been eaten down enough to not be on the rods inside the station. †You should monitor the stations monthly or weekly to ensure there is fresh bait and not small pieces inside for them to get out. †As long as the bait is still on the rods†the†Protecta Sidekick Rat Bait Station†is designed to prevent non target animals from getting to it. †They may try as most baits have food based attractants but should not be able to pull it out.
