Nooski Rat version: A good'un
This review is for the rat model - a bigger version of the mouse trap.
TLDR: This caught the smartest rat in the neighbourhood. I'm a big fan of this trap.
The trap uses what are basically castration bands (typically used by farmers to dock sheep tails and testicles). Once set and baited the rodent will enter the trap and crawl up into the cone where the bait is. There's a trigger set off by the rodent's head, releasing the band off the end of the cone and snapping down around the neck or upper body of the animal, cutting off air and blood flo...w. The rodent might die in the trap or in it's death throes, die a few inches away from the trap. The trap is easily reset ready to go again. There's no blood or messy remains to clean out. It's fairly kid and cat/dog safe with the trigger and band down at the end of the tube. Some reviewers have complained about this trap being hard to set - it does require some dexterity as you need to roll a very small thick rubber band down a cone right to the end and make sure it stops just on the lip and at the end of the trigger. So for me, this trap worked where the Ratsak poison and traditional snap traps didn't work. This rat was feasting on our chook feed, getting at the feeder in the coop. This guy was very trap shy, even avoiding baited traps when we removed the feeder overnight. Initially setting out the Nooski he even avoided that, probably as it was something new in the coop. Smart little guy sniffed out the feeder that I left on our porch table, climbed up and feasted himself, so the next night I emptied the feeder, left it on the table again this time with the Nooski next to it, baited with chook food at the pointy end and a small pile at the trap entrance. That worked a treat, the next morning, one very dead rat. I assume he wasn't as shy of the trap on the table as it was a new food location for him and not one he was completely familiar with yet. This trap was worth the money just to get this one smart rat. I recommend this trap but rats are pretty smart so patience may be required before you get a result.

Best trap ever
After trying multiple different traps, I decided to give the nooski a try. I wasn’t disappointed, works every time. Bit of peanut butter, set in a quiet area and BOOM. Workes for me every time. Highly recommended.

Most frustrating trap out.
I found the trap almost impossible to set up if you have a disability that affects your neck or hands. The ring popped off as soon as I set it down after numerous attempts to get the ring on. If you have one mouse then it will do the trick but if you have several then it’s onerous to use due to difficulty setting it up.
I bought the last two in Bunnings but will be returning the one I didn’t use.

Save your money & buy the rat poison baits instead
There's a reason there's no YouTube video of this working & that is because it doesn't work! It appears ants may have gotten to the bait, after leaving it out for a week. I checked daily & band was still in place. Useless, I returned 2 yesterday to Bunnings. I think the rats do enter the tunnel but the tube is too small so it doesn't force the latch to trap it.

Easy and effective
After watching the online video, I found this easy to set up and very effective. Killed the bugger within 24 hours. I preferred this to the old fashioned traps or baits.

Nooski Is The Bomb.com
I was sceptical when I purchased a Nooski...BUT now I am a believer! Traditional mouse trap 1 kill...1 loss. Nooski 2 out if 2... Were off to buy some more!

Easy to set, kills instantly, no mess. Haven't had a miss fire yet, very quick and humane, you only need the smallest amount of bait which stays in the trap

Had this thing for a couple of days and the results are perfect. Better than any other trap I’ve ever used. Very happy with this and would recommend to anyone with an indoor mouse problem

I am never using anything else for inside my house
With 12 hours I had caught the 2 mice in my bedroom it is a fantastic product safe for kids and pets. Reasonable easy to use and the results are amazing

I've tried so many humane traps that didn't work.
Finally caved and bought a Nooski rat and a mouse trap, and some extra rings.
At first, nothing happened - except the rodents stole the mouse trap. The whole thing. Gone.
The rat trap didn't work with only peanut butter in the bait area, but I dropped a bit of tissue with pasta sauce dried on it and some oats, right to the end of the barrel. Results! I heard it trigger and the rat made a noise, but it was thoroughly dead, quickly, unlike the poor rat that ate my neighbous poison. :-(

100% kill rate
Living rural we have plenty of vermin from time to time. After too many normal snap traps being pilfered with no catch I tried this nooski. Seemed like a joke when I first saw it, but after using it I can definitely say it's a great design. Bit fiddly to load up but EVERY noose had a mouse. Only negative is the noose can pop when you placing the trap down, I fix this by placing a cotton bud under the trigger which is removed when the trap is in position.

Has yet to catch anything
The trap has been armed and baited for 9 days. The rubber noose has been released 5 times, with 4 left lying in the bottom of the trap. No dead rat. These are definitely rats and not mice. Bait has been totally consumed on each occasion. I'm running out of Nutella and peanut butter. Don't know what happened to 5th 'noose'. Have tested the trip functionality of trap, which seems okay. So far a very expensive trap and no dead rats. They are still gorging on our Chook food as well.

Noosa a HIT.
Have been using nooska mouse traps and it never miss fire always catching a mice. The product is a little tricky for others in my family to set. But so far with peanut butter and bird seeds 100% success catching mice every time. Recommended product as I set the trap inside the bird cage and animals can't get caught in trap like other traps

Great rat trap, effective with no mess
Very pleased with this. Had a rat scurrying around under the house for a week I had tried it with uncooked nice no takers but within 2 hours of putting peanut butter as bait we nailed it.
I love how there was no blood or gore which made it easier for me to dispose of rat without heaving, and its more humane than glue or snap traps. Also cleverly it sort of fires the rat or mouse out of the trap, mine was almost a metre away. Apparently that means other rats don't associate the death with the trap so its reusable. They also get done before they even reach the bait so just need to load up another rubber ring not new bait.
$20 from bunnings well spent. I was going to throw poison under house but nervous about smell of dead rat in walls etc.
