The Catchmaster Mouse Wooden Snap Trap 602PE is a heavy duty mouse trap that brings a new twist on a classic product. It features expanded triggers that making it easy to capture targeted pests. This trap is made with recycled plywood as its base. It's a base that is less susceptible to warping even in wet or damp conditions and resistant to cracking which prolongs the use of the trap. The double tension springs provides improved, powerful and reliable triggering performance.
I've used these traps before and they never caught a thing. The problem is it takes too much weight on the trigger to set them off and thus the pest simply keeps getting another free meal every time you re-bait it. I threw these traps away after trying to use them for two weeks and caught mice as soon as I went back to a standard mouse trap.
I would not even sell these traps as they are a waste of money, time and effort. Stick with the traditional mouse trap that is very effective and simply put, they just work.
David must be doing something wrong. I've tried several brands, and would have bought Victor, but wife did the shopping and got CMaster. They worked very well from the start. Tho seemingly flimsy in construction(they ARE disposable) they have a HAIR TRIGGER! They may be a bit difficult to set because of this, but they more than make up for it in performance.
Where other traps are easily robbed of their bait, the CMs are SO fast and sensitive that the bait is never eaten; rather, the mouse's head is actually pushed into the (peanut butter) bait before it gets a chance to eat.
I really like the plastic bait tray, as it does not corrode. And, I DO reuse them. I suspect that the lingering mouse scent is attractive(to mice); use dispo rubber gloves when handling, both to avoid disease and to MASK YOUR SCENT. This may be why others have poor results. Great product!
I have used this product for one week. It caught nothing and I lost all my bates. Never again.

I bought these traps and set three of them in the garage. Used peanut butter, extra smooth because most mice do not prefer crunchy. Also, you can use Bologna. Mice love it unless they have high cholesterol. Most of the mice in my garage are quite healthy so it works good. I come out in the morning and find one with its head crushed. Always a pleasure to see.
Thank you for your business and your comments! Deli meats and bacon do tend to attract rodents very well!
