Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap M308
  • Alternate Image 1
  • Alternate Image 2

For serious mouse problems you can't go wrong with the Tin Cat Repeating Mouse Trap (Model M308). The Tin Cat Mouse Trap is a live-catch trap that is easy to use, catches up to 30 mice at a time, and requires no setting. Simply place the trap along a wall where mice like to travel and it is ready to go. Inquisitive mice will enter the trap, triggering a lever that will trap them in a holding area inside. They can get in, but there is no way out until you release them. Also available in Poly and Solid Top versions. Dimensions: 10.25" x 6.25" x 1.75".

Optional add-on: Many customers want the repeating catch capability of the Tin Cat but don't want to deal with live mice. In this case, we suggest that you also buy Tin Cat Glue Boards, which fit perfectly inside the Tin Cat. The mice will stick to the glue board and eventually die. The glue boards provide for easier disposal of the mice.




How to Use the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap (Video)



Tin Cats (MODEL - M308) have a very low profile (only 1.75 inches tall) allowing them to be placed in tight areas or under pallets. A clear lid on top of the trap allows easy viewing of your catch. Tin cats are perfect for the home or for larger areas such as farms, chicken houses, warehouses, etc.

 


Mice like to travel along walls and not across large open areas. Place the Tin Cat repeating mouse trap along a baseboard or in a corner. When the area to be controlled is large, the infestation is severe, or to increase the effectiveness of the traps, place several Tin Cats along the walls about 10-15 feet apart.

1. Place the Tin Cat trap lengthwise against wall or object with entrance holes nearest to that surface.

2. Use peanut butter or other typical mouse bait in the inside chamber to attract mice. (One customer put a dab at the top of the ramps and had great success!)

One very important thing to remember: it may take the mouse 1-2 weeks to become familiar enough with the tin cat, before it attempts to enter. At first the mouse may just go around the Tin Cat or run on top. However, once the mouse knows the trap isn’t going anywhere, it will be confident enough to go through the trap. Mice are very cautious about new things in their environment.

Tin Cat Features:
· No wind up required
· Fits where other traps won’t—only 1.75 inches high
· Lid opens lengthwise for easier service
· Entry housings can be removed for thorough cleaning
· Reduced alleyway beside housing to eliminate hiding place for mice
· Holds up to 30 mice
· Test holes in entry housing to check catch mechanism
· Clear lid M308 easier and quicker to inspect than solid top models
· May be used in FDA and USDA inspected plants
· Service record label packed inside each trap

    5 of 5 stars  Easiest and best trap so far!
    By Linda on 01/03/2007

    This Victor Tin Cat mouse trap really works great! I've been having mouse problems on and off and tried the single live trap; which worked fine in the beginning. Had to try other methods that I will never do again. I like to relocate them not kill them. Searched on the Internet and found this trap.  A couple of nights and I caught two mice. I've had it two weeks and caught and released 7 mice. For me giving them another chance is the way to go! Thank you this is a great product that has no mechanism that the mouse can trap himself into. I think this one is the easiest and best trap so far!

    5 of 5 stars  Excellent garage/basement/outdoor low-maintenance trap!
    By Mark in Lafayette, IN on 08/08/2011

    We bought two of these a few years back before they had the see-thru windows, and they've been great... we put dry corn in them, which our mice apparently love. We can set them out & leave them for days at a time without checking, and when we come back, sometimes we've had as many as eight mice in a single trap! There's no point in relocating mice, they'll just find their way back and you'll have to keep relocating them over & over again, or else you'll have to keep relocating their kids & grandkids, etc. Best way to handle 'em is to drop the whole trap in a bucket of water, come back 15 min later & empty it into the trash. Mice are NOT "cute"... they carry disease and do millions of $$$ of property damage yearly, duh.

    5 of 5 stars  Like the "live catch" option
    By T.r. on 01/04/2008

    I ordered two Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap live traps to get a family of field mice out of my garage! They worked quite well. The mice are gone - within a week I got all four of them. I sealed up a hole they were getting in - no evidence of any more. I liked that the traps gave me a "live catch" option.

    5 of 5 stars  Caught the varmints
    By Nancy on 08/29/2006

    I have been trying to catch 2 mice in the house since November. I tried a lot of things.  I got the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap.  In 3 days it caught the little varmints, THANK YOU so much. My cats had a good meal. Now for the mice out back. Now for the rats in the out building.

    1 of 5 stars  do not buy
    By Nancy in Lincoln, Nebraska, on 02/02/2016

    I have not caught a single mouse despite the fact that there is evidence that there are move to be caught. This purchase was a waste of money.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Placement is extremely important with these traps. The traps should be placed in areas with high activity and they should be placed parallel with the wall. The openings should be nearest the wall so that mice treat the openings as a tunnel. While bait is not usually necessary with correct placement, trap shy rodents can be enticed to go inside if you put a little dab of food inside the trap. Please let us know if these tips were helpful! We want to make sure each customer is satisfied with every purchase from our store. We look forward to hearing back from you soon!

    1 of 5 stars  Disappointed!!!
    By Ivete in White Plains, New York on 10/14/2015

    We set the trap behind our garbage almost 2 weeks ago and we haven't caught anything yet....

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    We apologize you havenít received the expected results. There could potentially be a couple of things going on here. 1. Placement is not favorable to capture a mouse. Is the trap placed parallel against a wall or other vertical surface with the holes closest to the wall? 2. Are you positive you have mice? Juvenile rats are often mistaken for mice but they are actually too large to fit inside of these traps. And last, have you used any kind of bait to help entice the mice into the trap? We look forward to hearing back from you soon!

    5 of 5 stars  This truly IS a better mousetrap!
    By Brunnhilde in Manchester, Michigan on 04/27/2015
    Verified Purchase

    Great product. The first couple of days it didn't trap a single mouse--maybe they were 'checking it out.' But then the trapping began, and every day the trap catches a few. I live in the country, and the recent severe winters have encouraged an increase in mice seeking warmth inside the house, but this trap is taking care of the problem.

    By June in Patchogue, NY on 11/04/2014
    Verified Purchase

    Had 2 traps for only 2 days and caught 2 mice. Problem Solved! Haven't caught any more. Still checking traps daily. Used dry dog kibble for bait. Much better than messy peanut butter. They loved it! Set mice free in far away wooded area! Highly recommend this product. Very easy to set and clean! Just add kibble, empty, wash, repeat!

    1 of 5 stars  Tin Cat Mouse Trap
    By Tom in Priest River, ID on 10/28/2014
    Verified Purchase

    Haven't caught anything yet. Maybe I put too much peanut butter in there. The entrance ramps seem a little too stiff for a light weight mouse to enter. It is still out in the garage next to the bags of sunflower seeds I use to feed the birds. Not sure what else to do.

    Worked within a couple of days to catch mice around garden fountain. Used peanut butter as bait since I have dogs. Worked as promised, only had a problem the first day with squirrels opening the top cover to get to the bait so I installed a sheet metal screw in front to secure it.

    5 of 5 stars  Very effecive trap
    By Victor in Ithaca, NY on 03/15/2014
    Verified Purchase

    Trapped seven mice, who had been sneaking into a cupboard, in three days. Since then, no more. Apparently got them all. Removing the trap mechanisms for cleaning was a little difficult. I corrected this by carefully selecting and flattening those locating tabs that were not necessary for proper securement of the mechanisms. After that, it is quite easy to remove and replace them. I highly recommend this trap due to its effectiveness and humane treatment of the little critters. Don't forget to check it often lest they starve themselves and die a cruel prolonged death. And leave them some food and water too.

QCan the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap be used for trapping lizards as well?
I have geckos/lizards all over the house, especially outside. I know they are good bug eaters, but I would prefer bugs over them. Please let me know if they can also be placed outside with the glue traps. Thanks

AThe Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap can be used outdoors with glue traps inside. They probably would not work very well to catch lizards, however. The lizard would need to go into the trap and weigh down the ramp and then enter the trap to be captured. A better choice would be to purchase glue boards such as the Catchmaster 72 MB that can simply be folded up to form a tunnel. If you have a situation where you need to have the glue boards enclosed, you could use the Protecta Pest Monitors. Protecta Pest Monitor is a reusable, plastic monitoring box used with Protecta MC Glue boards (sold separately). This trap has openings that allow everything from insects, lizards to mice to enter.

QHow do I test holes to entry housing to make sure the Victor Tin Cat is working properly?

AThis is complicated to explain via email but we will do our best. If you open the lid to the Victor Tin cat you will see the two mechanisms that are the "traps". The doors only work one way. As the mice enter the trap the lever acts as a see-saw. The inner lever goes down allowing them to enter the trap as the back lever lifts up from their weight not allow them to back up. Once inside the trap the lever goes back to the original position keeping the mice inside. you can test the lever with your fingers as if you are a mouse coming in. It doesn't snap on you, it will just change the position of the lever. If you need clearer information please call us 1-866-581-7378

QMice don't trigger snap traps-- will the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap work?
I have been unsuccessful in using several varieties of snap traps as the mice lick them clean without triggering them-- even just tiny dabs of lure or peanut butter. I don't mind live trapping and wonder if this product may be the direction I need to go.

AYes, if you are wanting to go with a live trap then the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap M308 would be a good one to use.  Another option on a snap trap if you haven't tried already is the Revenge Press & Set Mouse Traps that has a bait well instead of a pedal and would be harder for them to just eat and run.

QWill I ever get to a point where I'm not catching any more mice with the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap M308?
I am regularly catching mice with the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap purchased from you in April, at least 1 per day. The mice are full-grown. I have stuffed stainless steel wool into crevices where utilities enter the house, but am worried they are still finding a way in. The worst infestation is in my kitchen cupboards and under-sink area, which is where I put the trap. No food is stored there (I have a separate pantry for that, and I have not seen mice or mice droppings there). I do keep a covered compost jug under the sink and have continued to do that, thinking it will attract the mice, who then find the baited trap. Could I have had an infestation of 200+ mice? Any suggestions?

A

You should continue trapping with the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap as long as you still see mouse activity. We would suggest using multiple traps, but if you are happy with what you have so far, then you may continue with that plan. Mice breed quickly and do not require much food to thrive, so it is common to underestimate a population. Mice can fit through openings that are only 1/4" in diameter, so continuing to check for ways to exclude them is very important. You should remove any possible food source, including the compost bin, from the area where you have seen mouse activity. We would also recommend using bait in tamper-resistant bait stations around the perimeter of the home to prevent more outside populations from entering the structure. Our Rodent Baiting Kit contains 6 x stations and a 4 lb. pail of Gladiator bait blox that are excellent for both mice and rats. Please see our articles about Mouse Inspection and Mouse Treatment for more information and tips.

QWill the Tin Cat M308 catch Voles?

A

Since mice and voles are similar sizes It is possible for voles to be caught in†Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap M308†if they are placed in areas they come across and they go into the trap.

QWhat poison product would you recommend for use in the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap M308?
Glue boards are too slow to kill. I prefer a fast-acting poison but also something relatively non-toxic other animals such as birds that may eat the remains. Is there such a thing?

A

Rat X is a very good rodenticide that is made from 100% natural ingredients. This can be used inside of the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap. Keep in mind that the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap is not suitable for outdoor use as it is not weatherproof and is not designed to secure bait from non-target animals. Indoors, there is no guarantee as to where the rodents will die. See our Mouse Control Guide for more information about baiting and exclusion.
