    4 of 5 Stars   Rat Trap
    By Henrietta on 03/15/2013

    I purchased this for a friend as they have used this before with great success. It's easy to use (but be careful not to snap it on your fingers) and immediately breaks the neck of the rodent.

    1 of 5 Stars   Inhumane
    By Tammy on 04/13/2016

    It worked - CAUGHT the rat, but didn't kill it. The rat was trapped by its head, then ran around my garage dragging the tap with it for 24 hours, until I could get a neighbor to come and put it out of it's misery.

    5 of 5 Stars   Work great on chipmunks
    By Craig on 02/28/2013

    I had caught a red squirrel in a have a catch and release trap. I took it down to the creek a let it go in the middle of the bridge. Who would have thought it would jump in the creek. Well when my wife told me the chipmunks were eating her strawberries I didn't want to go thru that experience again so I got some of T-Rex Rat Traps. Boy do they work good. You have to tie them down so the critter doesn't run away with it if they don't get killed right away.

    4 of 5 Stars   Trapping the Critters
    By Walter on 12/01/2012

    Here in Florida we have an abundance of "Roof Rats or Palm Rats". They are small, and nocturnal. In the winter they move into my attic. I set out a line of Trapper T-Rex traps and got three the first night and two more the second night. The traps are simple to set and easy to empty. I am very happy with your product, the rats are not.

    5 of 5 Stars   Works well
    By Linda on 12/12/2010

    The trap is easy to set and fill with bait. A few times I found it in the closed position with no rodent. But I think it's a vast improvement over the old wooden traps.

    2 of 5 Stars   T-Rex Rat Trap
    By Robert on 03/27/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I had these traps for two weeks and haven't trapped a rat yet. Changed bait in the traps and put them in different places, nothing. The old conventional trap that has a spring bar has trapped four rats using the same bait. Why doesn't the new ones work, I do not know. Will keep using them and hopefully they will trap a rat. Any help please.

    5 of 5 Stars   Awesome!
    By Sean on 06/13/2015

    I'd struggled with wooden traps and nearly lost my fingers trying to set them! This was so easy to set and has a fantastic spring action. It's worked a treat so far

    5 of 5 Stars   Rat trap T-Rex
    By Gary on 05/15/2011

    I have used these to keep the rat population down around my hen house. They work fantastic just make sure you keep them away from the chickens. I recommend you get the black house to put the trap in so no other animals get caught.

    5 of 5 Stars   Caught one on the FIRST day!
    By Patty on 06/05/2016

    I set the trap out with peanut butter and a cranberry stuck in the middle of it and caught a pack rat on the first day. I then proceeded to get one everyday for 5 days in a row. Nice traps!

    5 of 5 Stars   Easy to Set & Maintain
    By Norm on 02/11/2016

    These traps are so much easier to maintain than the wooden bail type, and also easier to keep clean. I'm on my 3rd case in 2 years. Also easier to anchor or screw to a 2x4 or piece of plywood

    5 of 5 Stars   Red Rats
    By Mike on 07/26/2011

    There are no rats where I live. Rather, from time to time, my outbuildings become infested with red squirrels. They chew everything to pieces and haul in bushels of bedding material (leaves, grass, etc.). They also cache vast amounts of alder or spruce cones. The T-Rex is the best solution. It is easy to use, dependably and mercifully dispatching the little devils. Over the last six days T-Rex has helped me remove seven red squirrels from my buildings. It helps to attach the traps to something solid with a length of light chain or wire. When the jaws snap down on the squirrel there is always a "death spasm" that can propel trap and squirrel some distance.

    5 of 5 Stars   Easy To Use
    By Red on 09/13/2014

    I am so happy with these trappers. They are easy to use and appear to kill the rats quickly. Removal of dead animals is simple and quick. I like that they are reusable. Using these traps and the bait are hundreds of dollars less expensive than using a service that does the same thing.

    5 of 5 Stars   Bait lasts a long time...
    By Kathi on 01/23/2016

    This was the solution I was looking for - a bait station with a non poisonous trap inside for the chicken yard. 5 so far and the peanutbutter is still in there.

    5 of 5 Stars   Great Trap
    By Ars on 12/14/2015

    Got these, baited them with peanut butter and within an hour had caught a rat. Got more over the next several days. Cleared out the rat problem. Simple to set and use. Definitely zip tie them to a piece of 2X4 to anchor them.

    5 of 5 Stars   RAT TRAP WITH RESULTS
    By Foxxygranny on 07/08/2015

    The T-Rex Rat Trap produces results every time! When baited with peanut butter, this trap will catch even more than one rat at a time! It is quite an efficient rat trap! I love it! Son has caught up to nine rats so far in less than 2 weeks' time. I'm so glad I discovered the T-Rex Rat Trap!

    5 of 5 Stars   Trapper T rex
    By Sally on 09/29/2015

    Have used these for years. Just had a new outbreak of critters (tree taken down/nice cushy dead wood). Bought 4 new T-Rex's and 11 dead rats in 6 days. A little lull, then 4 more. No muss, no fuss. Dead rats!!

    2 of 5 Stars   Fierce looking trap, but no rat.
    By Gunnha on 10/29/2014

    I found my back porch full of rat droppings and bought 3 of these T-Rex's. After cleaning out the porch, set the traps with peanut butter, I waited. All 3 traps got tripped in the morning, but no rats. Waited again, again, and again. 2 weeks now, and every night the traps got sprung. Still no rats. The only good thing is that the rats don't seem to hang around after setting off the traps (the traps make a hell of a bang) and I have a lot less rat droppings to wash off. For that I gave T-Rex the extra star.

    2 of 5 Stars   Did not invent a better trap
    By Bryan on 11/08/2014

    I have "killed" 3 large rats with this trap. That is the good news. Bad news, none of them died because of the trap. I had to kill them by hand. It's not strong enough. 2/3 rats dragged the trap at least 20 feet from where it had been set and the only reason they stopped was because it got stuck. Do yourself a favor and buy the old-fashion wood traps. They work much better.

    5 of 5 Stars   T Rex Rat Trap
    By Brittany on 12/29/2014

    After I saw a rat in our trash for a couple days, I decided to order the TRex Rat Trap. Even though it's made of plastic, it certainly gets the job done. I was worried that it would leave the rat suffering or clip a limb but to my surprise, it worked perfectly. All you have to do is place food in the center and set it outside. I set the trap before bed and woke up to a dead rat. It was quick and painless. The rat we caught was the length of my hand so I wouldn't suggest this type of trap if you have a huge "cat-sized" rat. Other than that, it's a wonderful trap. Shipping was FAST too!!!

    By Todd on 07/06/2016

    I love the ability to get to the bait cup without having to hold the trap open. That with the easy set and ability to use a zip tie to hold it down make this my go to with the mini T-Rex for mice.

    1 of 5 Stars   Things run off
    By Rose on 07/01/2016

    So, we set this, tied it down as others recommended. The T Rex chomps down on the critter, and they are able to pull themselves free because the critters use the tie down as traction to keep pulling themselves out. Not good.

    The traps works great. We use peanut butter as the rat seems to be attracted to the smell.

    This is the same trap the pros use. That is how I found it. I caught one of the little bastards the other day with a Snickers bar. It's a better mouse trap.

    4 of 5 Stars   Small for Pack Rats
    By Robert on 07/25/2012

    I have had reasonable success in trapping wood (pack) rats, but they are bigger than house (Norway) rats and have had some trouble with them escaping the trap. I have not found any trap that works better, however.

    5 of 5 Stars   Trapper T-Rex
    By Gen on 07/06/2016

    Having a continual chipmunk problem with them burrowing under sidewalks, driveway and into 4' window wells, I've been using an old exterior Protecta bait & trap station that had a snap trap that finally gave way. I purchased the T-Rex as a replacement and so far after 12 catches, it works great. Fits into Protecta trap compartment perfectly, the bait tray is ample sized. Easier and safer to set compared to wire snap traps and cleans up easy too with the large setting lever. Highly recommended.
