    5 of 5 Stars   Protecta Sidekick Bait Station - A Godsend!
    August 3, 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.

    4 of 5 Stars   Good size but hard to open
    September 5, 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.

    3 of 5 Stars   Good size but too hard to open
    December 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 box
    October 17, 2010

    These work well, good size, but i find them a bit difficult to open. Perhaps after some time they will loosen up a bit.

    4 of 5 Stars   Safe Rat Killing
    September 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.

    3 of 5 Stars   With a T Rex Rat Trap, It Caught A Raccoon :(
    November 16, 2012
    Verified Purchase

    I don't know how many stars to give this, but you all should know that it's easy for a raccoon or opossum to reach in and get the bait if it's used with a T Rex rat trap. I used chunky peanut butter rolled in birdseed. This unlucky raccoon ran off with my trap on it's paw and my heart is broken. A better design would be to have the trap further away from the holes than a paw could reach, or to use the blue sticks of bait without a trap so long as they don't smell good to a coon. If you use this bait station with a T Rex, at the very least consider anchoring it so other animals that get trapped can get rescued by the Humane Society. It's a tough balance between human and wild life sometimes. The T-Rex trap that fits in this bait station is very sensitive and got my thumb while I was trying it out. It shocked me more than hurt me. Even with the video explaining how to use the key to unlock it, it's still hard to do. Would be damn near impossible with a raccoon attached to it.

  • 5 of 5 Stars   Best Solution for Mice Control! Not 1 t/be seen in/t house.
    October 20, 2010

    Not one mice to be seen in the house. I had these 6 boxes set around our ranch style home. I also bought the lg. bait bucket. The same night we put them around the house. We set up right up against the house 2 Stations in the back, 2 in the front & 1 on each side. They started to work right away! We also found they were coming in through the side vent it is were the bait kept being ate. My wife & I were catching average 2 field mice a day. It was horrible, the wife did not sleep due to night activity in the kitchen (that is when mice are active at night). So if the wife is not happy, every married man knows Your Not Happy Either! So I came across this website. It has been the greatest thing I have ever purchased. IT'S THE BEST SOLUTION for mice control. The idea is to stop them from getting inside, that is were the Bait Station comes in, they feed till satisfy & go away, they don't bother coming in the house. That is exactly what happen, day 2 quiet all night, just the sounds of a sleepy happy wife. All is well the food can go back in the cabinets & pots back under the sink! If you are having mice problems this is the best solution. Don't battle inside your home, defend from the outside. No more sticky traps, & squealing mice. Protecta Sidekick (is your sidekick) it helps keep the mice away the moment you put them out there, no more will come in. You may have mice hiding in the house & eventually you will catch them all. But atleast you know no more will be coming inside your home once you put the baits out there. Now that is peace of mind!

  • 4 of 5 Stars   Good Size
    March 8, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    I opted for this size and it works fine. I passed on the poison and bought the T-Rex rat traps to put inside. They fit fine. Although there are no directions, the trap has a groove that fits on top of a raised portion of the bait station so it won't slide around when placing it on the ground. I watched the video on how to use the key (although they don't use this bait station in the video) and it is still hard to open. I know... pull back and lift. Perhaps the issue is with the sidekick and the other size is easier. I was also disappointed that even though I bought three stations, I only got one key.

  • 4 of 5 Stars   Works well with Trapper T-Rex Rat Trap
    October 14, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    I wanted to kill some rats outside, but not run the risk of having my dog feed on the carcass of a poisoned rat. I saw the idea of placing a T-Rex Rat Trap inside the Protecta Sidekick Bait Station and thought I'd try it out. The combination works well together. The trap is contained and protected from my dog and other critters that might come by. The rat is contained inside the Bait Station, so the carcass is inaccessible, too. Prevents an injured rat from dragging the trap away. It's a good solution for those who want to avoid poisons and don't want dead rats in inaccessible locations.

  • 5 of 5 Stars   Hold 8 blocks!
    September 8, 2014

    I choose these stations because as far as I can tell there is no other station that will hold this volume of bait. This is especially helpful on mouse clean-out jobs when you need large amounts of bait in the beginning for the initial knock down. My only complaint is the mechanism you have to open them with can be a little tough. Also I am anticipating this will be extremely tough in the winter. With snow and ice.

  • 4 of 5 Stars   Holds eight bait blocks!
    September 14, 2014

    A little hard to open, but holds eight bait blocks. Perfect for the homes or yards that have a full blown infestation.
