RBS1 EZ - Secured Rodent Bait Station is not a trap of any kind. It is used with rodenticide baits to help protect them from weather and non target animals. Rodents will enter the station, eat the bait, and then exit the station. Or, you can use a trap in the station that will kill rodents that get caught in it, such as the Catchmaster Easy Set Rat Snap Trap (621P)
You will place the key in the top of the RBS1 EZ - Secured Rodent Bait Station lid, turn in the direction of the arrows on the lid, and press down and lift to unlock the station.
