So here it is. I don't write reviews very often but after reading some on Ortho Home Defense here I had to chime in here in defense to Ortho. To those who say mice chewed through the plastic I say, bunk!! To those who say the trap didn't trip, I say that's true. I had some that didn't trip but eventually did. I believe the size of the mouse has a lot to do with that. The ones that didn't trip I set next to another trap. Sorta baiting the mouse. Walks into one to have a meal, thinks yey! and bam get's caught in the other and that worked out nicely. Found that the mouse was quite small. Eventually the traps that didn't spring at first did with larger mice. Some traps were hard to set because the plastic tab on bottom front would barley catch but I got it to catch by using my thumb to pull it over the lip of the floor. It can be tricky but they set. Had two traps like that. So how many did I trap. Well I came across country to take care of my sick mother who used to have cats but couldn't take care of them. So a few years before she gave the cats to other people. When I came home to her old farm house it was frankly infested with mice. I had to get something that would be easy for me or her to set and toss when used and frankly something that worked. The old board traps hardly ever work and for her are impossible to set. Anyone says different has never used them. Over a course of four months we have caught and tossed 25 mice. Yes you read that right 25 mice and they have never escaped or chewed their way out, Not one! So I'm not sure what everyone else here does with their traps but I have bought 14 packs of traps and caught 25 mice and three are still set waiting for mice to arrive which they haven't! That's a 100% catch rate. In the cars I used a different tactic to repel the mice I use a product called Fresh Cab which keeps them out.

The Home Defense Max Kill & Contain is easy to use and does contain the mice. But consider it a single-use live trap. We bought a package of 2 traps. In both cases, the mice were not visibly harmed. Both mice were alive and able to move and walk, so they did not seem to be hurt in any significant way. (We didn't x-ray for any internal injuries.)

Once the mice were caught and disposed of, we were not able to reset the traps.

If you want a live trap, get one that is reusable.
Like they say...build a better mousetrap...

    The mouse didn't go inside to eat the peanut butter. It chewed off the trap door and ate it from behind.

        I had high expectations for these and I got them all four out carefully and set them. I moved my arm and my sleeve rubbed against one of the traps, activating all four. I saw on the instructions to just reset them but none of them reset after multiple attempts. I will be sending to get a refund.

            Been using these for years with success. Last batch I purchased (6) would not snap shut no matter what I tried. This is the second batch in as many years that wouldn't work. You need to review the manufacture of the "hook" on the bottom. It grabs the platform and won't let go. So in addition to a refund, I could use some money for the peanut butter I've fed the little varmints.

                This trap is a big joke I bought a two pack, when I got them home and set them they never went off every time I checked them the mice ate the bait, if you want a trap that's going to work every time I recommend getting the d-con mouse trap.

                    We have always purchased these traps to put in the basement. Have always worked well....until the last 2 sets we purchased. Looks like they have changed the production of these traps. Used to be a red handle to set the trap..........now it is black and a little different. Also the "spring" part itself does no move as free. Just put 2 of these out last night..........mice were able to eat all of the peanut butter out of the trap, and the "spring" never released, so never caught the mice. This has happened with the last 4 we have used. It's much harder to set them and get them to "click" than the previous version. I will be looking for another type at this point rather than wasting my money. :(

                        Set two of these traps with peanut butter bait in an area that could be accessed by my three year old son. Both caught mice the first night. Will be purchasing more of these in the future.

                                  I think the mice are not big enough to set off the trap. The mice didn't set off the traps but I did when I barely touched it with a plastic knife.We stopped using the traps. Apparently,with these traps,we were just feeding them. We were so fed up that we just threw them away. Should have asked for money back.

                                        I baited 2 of them with peanut butter. Within 1 hour, I had already caught one. The other trap the dog got a hold of and tore it up to get the peanut butter. I will be buying a couple more packs tomorrow. Just in case I have more mice.

                                                    I can't believe people have problems with this trap. So far I have used 8 of these over the last year or so, and have caught 8 mice. I will go out today and get more so I have them over the colder winter months when mice really want to come in out of the cold. My wife told me yesterday that she thought she saw a mouse near the pantry, we had 2 of these traps so I set them in the morning, by afternoon the mouse and his buddy we caught.

                                                        I have used the same style trap by Dcon which worked. The mice went into the trap,ate the peanut butter and left. We kept baiting the traps and in the morning the bait was gone. We caught 1 mouse, which I took out and released, and killed 1. We had removed any bagged or boxed food from counters etc. so there was no food except for the bait in the traps. This went on for over 3 weeks. The mice didn't set off the traps but I did when I barely touched it with a plastic knife.We stopped using the traps and the mice have gone. Apparently,with these traps,we were just feeding them. We were so fed up that we just threw them away. Should have asked for money back.

                                                                Two cats have not deterred the fall infestation of mice. The trap is easy to use and it lets you know that something has been caught. The only thing that is visible is the tail. Using p'nut butter as bait. This is the first trap that I have used that works. Easy disposal. A little pricy, but safe around pets.

A mouse can step on the flap holding the bait but the jaw does not close and the mouse ends up getting a free meal. The trap failure might be related to the plastic construction that cause the material to stretch slightly, making the mechanism no longer operational. I don't like the Ortho mouse traps and have no plans to seek a refund. I just want a mouse trap that works.

The rocking of the pressure plate should displace the retainer. At manufacture, the shape and direction of the retainer can vary greatly if just a plastic extension, and may not hold the main plate in place, may not even line up. Quality is what I might expect from the wall of an everything is a dollar store.

After a short happy dance grabbed the loop on top of tbe trap & tossed it. Went staight to the store & bought 6 more

Have/had one to try and did not last long. Poor design, not that it would not work but the supportive flap contraption hinged areas (both sides) failed to keep the trap set (open). The two hinged areas keeping and holding the trap cocked is poorly designed and failed under the constant spring pressure, sheering completely off its hinges. Novel idea for a trap but inherited weak design flaws to keep the jaws locked open until tripped by a rat. ~ So, the rat got a free meal of Skippy due to the flaw. ~

I heard the snap this afternoon while I was eating my lunch. Curiosity got the best of me and I looked for the source of the sound to find this trap. I saw the tail of the little mouse sticking out of the opening. This trap definitely served it's purpose. If you're looking for a way to kill a mouse so you don't have to feel guilty when you see it's soulless eyes, then this is the trap for you.

Set the trap down gently. Forget about it until your dogs go nuts. I think this was the same mouse that's been here since last fall.

                                                                                                I bought two of these contraptions and set them out baited with cheese. I caught one gigantic mouse the first night, but since then, the smaller, ordinary mice eat the bait and exit without tripping the trap. I have glued three 3/8" steel washers to the floor of one trap and will try it out. I hope the extra weight will produce a hair trigger enabling the trap to catch the more common, smaller mice. I'll let you know.
