    1 of 5 Stars   rat trap hat for squirrels
    March 14, 2012

    I purchased 4 of these to catch rats that have started to appear in the yard. I set the trap which is easy to use, and was curious how well they wouils work. It took about 4 hours, and SNAP. I go look outside and there is a squirrel rolling around with the trap stuck on his head. Not Good, he was able to get free, and I was trying to decide what to do, when 2 more snapped and this time the traps were stuck on the squirrels heads and the squirrels ran up the tree with traps on their heads. traps gone. Tie them down.

    I purchased this trap and used peanut butter as an enticement and caught the rat I was after. It worked great and I'm really happy how easy it was to use.

    3 of 5 Stars   Easy to use
    January 20, 2015

    Large rat might be too much for these. Every time it sprung the rat got away, sometime leaving a limb behind. Then i find it dead somewhere else.

    I am very disappointed in the T-Rex rat traps. Since I bought them the traps have frequently been sprung, but none of them has caught a rat.

    1 of 5 Stars   Not very durable but works ok until the plastic breaks
    June 16, 2012
    Verified Purchase

    Great design which is effective, but after one or two snaps, the plastic breaks. I thought this type of plastic composite material would be weather proof and virtually indestructable compared to the old fashioned wooden traps. I was wrong and about $30 for the 4 traps and 2 of the smaller T rex traps I found these arent a good long term solution. I still have functioning wooden traps from the 1970s that still work fine. These plastic traps are about as disposable as you can get. Sure they might catch up to 4-5 rats before they break, but I was expecting years and years of use before the spring would wear out or the metal rust.

    1 of 5 Stars   T-Rex Rat Trap
    February 20, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    They work fine for small to medium rats, but the first large rat encountered, destroyed the trap. There does not seem to be enough "meat" around the shaft where the spring is to hold much of a strain. That is the area that broke, rendering the trap useless, and it was thrown in the trash.

    4 of 5 Stars   Rat Trap
    March 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.

    4 of 5 Stars   price 40% higher than my last 2 orders
    December 24, 2014
    Verified Purchase

    As of dec 24 the 12 pack was $79 on domyownpestcontrol and the past 2 orders in the past 2 years i got for $55, forced to buy elsewhere due to 12 pack pricing being out of line compared to other online pest control retailers. Great Traps, i rated this the same rating as the average rating so not to influence the rating of the item but just to get my voice out there. $55 x 1.42 is $78. The other seller i purchased it from had free shipping as well. so?

    5 of 5 Stars   Klean Kill
    May 12, 2014

    After trying a couple of these, I ordered a case. Easy to set, empty, clean, and maintain. Dog food or peanut/almond butter in the bait cup and a drop or two of any cooking oil on the spring, and it can be set anywhere. Clean kills and easy rat removal and is a compact unit. Mount a couple to a 2X4 to set the traps at an angle.

    5 of 5 Stars   Awesome!
    June 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

    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
    March 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   RAT TRAP WITH RESULTS
    July 8, 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   T Rex Rat Trap
    December 29, 2014
    Verified Purchase

    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!!!

    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   Red Rats
    July 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
    September 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.
