Victor Mouse Trap M325 Pro - Holdfast

The Victor M325 Holdfast mouse trap is a "traditional" mouse trap with a little something extra. The original wood-based wire snap trap now has a large scented plastic trip pedal. No need to bait with a cheese scent made right on the trip pedal! The Victor M325 mouse trap is made with FSC certified wood. Trap measures 4"L x 1 3/4"W.

These Victor snap traps have a plastic trigger that resembles bait, are easier to set then normal traps, and also have a sensitivity setting that will prevent the trap from snapping due to vibrations in the environment, such as those caused by heavy machinery. Victor snap traps work very well and kill mice instantly. If you do choose to use a bait, snap traps work best when baited with sticky bait (i.e. peanut butter). 12 traps.

1. Pull the bow (the spring loaded part) back, holding it down with the thumb of one hand.
2. With your other hand, take the locking bar (the long arm with the curve >in the end that is attached to the back of the trap) and lay it in the center of the spring. Make sure that the curved or cupped part faces downward.
3. Begin to tilt the cheese pedal upward. As you do, you'll notice that the tip the locking bar will engage inside a little box-like opening on the back of the cheese pedal.
4. Slowly release your grip on the bow, the force of which should hold the locking bar inside that little box on the pedal. The trap is now set.
5. There is an "S" and an "F" imprinted on the pedal itself. If you wish the trap to be more sensitive, position the locking bar towards the "S" side of the little box by sliding it that direction. "F" stands for firm (less sensitive).

How to Use Snap Traps Effectively:
Most trapping efforts fail because too few mouse traps or rat traps are used. You'll probably need more traps then you think. Set enough traps to kill most of the population before the rodents begin to shy away from the traps. We recommend placing the traps every 2-3 feet along a wall, with the trap placed perpindicular to the wall. Rodents enter a home through holes the size of a dime and run along walls, not over open spaces.
1. Place traps perpendicular to the wall.
2. Place traps out unset, without bait, for a few days (even 1-2 weeks) so rodents can become familiar with them.
3. Place traps where rodent activity is seen (sign of chewing, droppings, runway, burrow).
4. Leave traps undisturbed for at least two days before moving to a new location.
5. Check traps daily and replace as needed.
6. Wear gloves when disposing of rodent.

Baits: These baits are favorites for mice and rats:

Mouse Bait: Peanut Butter, Cheese, Oats, Nesting Materials, Chocolate, Water (for live catch)

Rat Bait: Peanut Butter, Bacon, Fruits, Vegetables, Cereals, Meats, Acorns (Wood Rat)

    5 of 5 stars  Best Traps Ever
    By Willie in Hartland, MI on 11/11/2010

    First the bad news. Although the traps were received promptly, they came loosely packed in a box and instead of a case of 72 traps, only 71 were received. I also purchased the Provoke Mouse Attractant which was included in the same box. We had been hearing mice and occasionally I would catch one but I knew they were still there. I had been using other brands and models of traps previously and was becoming frustrated when I found my pecan butter bait missing but the traps unsprung. The first day I set out 5 Victor M325 traps using the Provoke and Pecan Butter. The Provoke goes into a little indentation on the top of the trap and I pushed the pecan butter up through the bottom of the “V” cutout. The next morning, I had 4 dead mice. I replaced the 4 traps with new traps and the following morning I had 2 more mice. Then 1 more on 4 subsequent days until I had caught 10 mice altogether. Then no mice for about a week followed by one additional victim. My wife and I had no idea that we had so many mice. These traps are the best mouse catchers that I have come across. I set all the traps for maximum sensitivity and none of the traps have had the bait taken without catching the culprit. I don’t know if the Provoke makes the traps more effective, but it seems worth the small added cost. Victor M325 traps get my unqualified recommendation.

    1 of 5 stars  Victor Mouse Trap
    By Jr in Oklahoma City on 03/14/2010

    This is probably the worst mouse trap I've ever used. Not hard to set but is not sensitive enough to catch a mouse. Does not work, baited or unbaited. When baited the mouse gets the bait every time and does not trip the trap. A total waste of money in my opinion.

    5 of 5 stars  Victor Mouse Trap M325
    By Ken in Britton , mi on 05/12/2010

    I have used these traps many years, but I was only able to get 2 or 3 at a time from the local hardware store. When I found and that I could get a box of 72 I bought them, I didn't want to go looking for them again. These traps set very easy and trip with the slightest touch you only bait the trap once and catch many mice. The mice can't get to the bait cup without setting off the trap, NO licked clean traps. The best trap around.

    5 of 5 stars  Worth buying
    By Jess in Lindsay, CA on 11/03/2011

    I thought the old style Victor traps were better than these and bought a case of the old style. Well, I hate to go back on a previous review but these M325 traps have their time and place too. I've had problems recently with "smart" mice licking the peanut butter off of the 040 traps' metal triggers and the yellow 325 traps will nail them when you place the peanut butter in the bait cup and set the trigger so that the rod JUST BARELY will hold the trigger set. Use the most sensitive setting possible. Smart mice (I think) have more of a tendency to rest their paws on the trigger of this trap since it is larger and, even if unbaited, they apparently will step on the trigger if the trap is placed at a right angle to the wall. (trigger facing wall) Bottom line. Use BOTH styles of traps. I'm going to get a case of this new style. And, most of the time, the old style is great too. Hey! Maybe Domyownpestcontrol could offer a mixed case of 50/50 of each type?

    5 of 5 stars  Great!
    By Rick on 01/22/2008

    The Victor Mouse Trap M325 Pro is great! We live in a new development, so there are obviously fields nearby that have mice living in them. They come to get warm in the winter and they don't leave...alive! We get them right away as they come in through the garage and there is no sign of an infestation.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Most effective ever!
    By Glenn in LOVELAND on 10/19/2017

    We have always lived in rural areas, and have always had armies of mice move in every autumn. So we have tons of mouse trap experience. We met a professional exterminator a few months ago, and he gave us four of these M325's. So we set four standard Victor pedal traps, and the four M325, a few weeks ago. We caught nine critters with the M325's, and one with the pedal traps. We are fairly expert with the pedal traps, but we won't use them any more. We're buying a bunch of M325 units.

    1 of 5 stars  Mouse trap
    By Joan in Glendale on 04/30/2017

    This the worst mouse trap I have ever seen. You can not bait them and set them what a piece of crap. I purchased 2 pkgs of four, not one of them could I set, as soon as I started to place the trap on the floor it would go off. These inferior things were probably made in china

  • 5 of 5 stars  Good trap for the money
    By Fred in Syracuse, NY on 03/20/2017

    You won't find a better trap for the price. These Pro model traps are so much better made and easier to set that the ones you buy at the hardware/dollar store. These are much easier to set than the Catchmaster ones, their spring is too stiff. These I can usually set in 1 or 2 attempts.

    This new trap is catching them left and right. No more stealing the bait and getting away. I use just a little peanut butter and it lasts forever.

  • 5 of 5 stars  simple, work well for the money
    By J. in florida on 11/07/2016

    These are plenty good for the money. I would suggest buying the 72 pack because you should place at least 3 in a row in any one place. Placing against the wall or straight edge (snapping toward wall). Jif peanut butter works excellent. Lightly smear it on the yellow pad toward the center, forcing the mouse to step on it. Too much peanut butter and you weigh it down. Jif smells plenty strong. You'll want to put out at least 25-35 traps at once as you want to try and catch them all as quickly as possible before they start to avoid the traps, which doesn't happen quickly.... but still its better before an infestation gets out of hand. I also ordered glue traps, but these snapping traps caught 80% of the mice. I caught about 15 mice in about a week.

    We live in an old farmhouse, so mice are always a problem. This model mouse trap with the plastic insert is the only one that "catches" mice without having the bait stolen!

    By Stu in STAMFORD, CT on 06/28/2016

    I've used these for several years in the greenhouse and found them to be easily reusable, easy to set, easy to bait (I use peanut butter), and reliable. If there's a mouse, this trap will catch it.

QHow much force does it take to trigger a mousetrap?

AWe are not sure how much force it takes as far as a measurement.  We recommend calling the manufacturer for this.  However, the traps are very sensitive and it does not take hardly any trying to set them off, at least from our experience.
