Best trap I ever used
Read a couple of negative reviews and I understand exactly what happened. Some of these traps are too sensitive, others not sensitive enough. The solution is quite simple. If it is too sensitive, use super glue to glue a small weight (test to see how heavy a weight is needed before glueing) on top of the rear flap. If not sensitive enough, cut some short strips of cardboard (from breakfast cereal packet etc and again test how many needed) to glue underneath the rear flap to hold it a little higher which increases the sensitivity. So easy to set...- my wife or grandchildren can set them without fear of getting a finger caught. We catch at present up to 13 mice per night - 90% in these traps, 10% in the old wooden ones which I also use. They are just super. Hope my comments help you.
Not worth the money.
My sister who lives nearby in a bush area has had some mice problems recently and got a couple of these. Like others here these traps have been nothing more than a mouse feeding device. Bait gone, trap mechanism not tripped. Cant beat the good old wood ones i reckon, set them on the very edge of going off and work every time. Guess people want something easy and less hands on in setting them up like these things. Whats a minute or two of your time in the big scheme of things doing it right. Sometimes the old is still the best. These things are toys.
Excellent mouse trap
This is the best mouse trap after having used several other similar ones over several nights. On the first night I used this mouse trap I was finally able to catch the mouse. This is a very sensitive mouse trap so the mouse could not lick the bait clean without being snapped up by the trap.
As with many others writing reviews, I too laid out a range of traps from different brands. I found the snap-E traps too stiff with mice just eating the bait and walking away. This included licking all the peanut butter which is the bait I use and it still did not set them off. The Safe N Sure is the only one of all that I used that has caught mice repeatedly and regularly as opposed to what seems to be one off flukes with the rest of them. I will use them only from now on as they definitely go off in less time than it takes a mouse to lick the peanut butter. Oh and they sell them in stock at Woolworths for the person who could not find them at Coles.
Cheap and good if they work
I was hit with a Wimmera mouse pre plague. I had mice everywhere, found a couple of packets of the old style wooden traps and had them set everywhere and by the time I had baited them it was time to rebait them, not reset them. They were useless. I went shopping and bought 4 different types of trap (plus another 2 types later) which I will review all here.
The Safe N Sure trap have been around a few years and the concept is great and they are a great little trap if you can find one that sets. They are easy to bait, especially solid bait such ...
Great mouse trap - why can't I buy more!
this trap is far better than the one I'm currently trialling.
It doesn't matter that they break after many months use because it's very effective.
I'm very disappointed that they seem to have come off the shelves of Bunnings and Coles and I can't find anywhere else to buy them. And the mice just laugh at the current one I have. they are getting fat eating the peanut butter
I love these traps , I use 3 different types of mouse trap and only these go off and catch the mice .. only problem I have had is a neighbours cat taking off with the mice and the traps! I only got one back . Also using Talon baits I have cleared up a lot of mice very quickly . I want to buy more of these traps next time I head through Gawler .
I brought the SAFEnSURE twin pack mousetrap. Completed disappointed in the quality as one fell apart in my hands as I went to set it for the first time. Customer Service non existent! I tried to email to give customer feedback the email bounced back and so I then tried calling the number on the package... it has been disconnected.
Best mouse trap
This is the best mouse trap I have ever used. We have quite a few mice at the moment and I have been setting three different types of traps each night. The box type in which the mouse goes into the trap and then you have to dispose of it in the morning. Unpleasant!! - The type which bites your finger when you put it on the floor and if you do catch a mouse, it tries to get you again and then these little efficient traps which are easy to set, dispose of the mouse and reset. Great Invention!!!
Does the job well
Probably the best trap I've ever had, traps have had lasted me 8 years and still active
Does what they are supposed to do and kills fairly fast, tried other traps but they always would go off without anything touching them or go off after a mouse has cleaned the bait right off the tongue of the trap
Horrid! And USELESS!!!
DO NOT BUY!! One trap was licked clean and didn't go off. the other trap caught a mouse by the leg.....I didn't hear it....so the poor mouse was stuck all night. It dragged the trap under the dishwasher until it was completely wedged under there. Trying to get the trap out released the poor mouse with a broken leg.
We live in the country so have had plenty of practice catching mice, tried these when one hitched a ride in our camper baited with a smear of peanut butter. 4 days later changed to a different trap and caught straight away, not sure they'd kill much if they did go off either, basically garbage!
Just a little further information, I spent about an hour trying to give this manufacturer feedback using various email addresses from their site and the packaging not to mention their contact form and all got bounced, total waste of time, what a top company!
At last a great trap
Beats me how this gets negative ratings as its the best I ever used. peanut butter works a treat. Will be getting a 100 of these beauties as on the farm mice and rats everywhere. Need bigger ones for rats though and never saw them in Woolworths. The best thing about these traps are "no mess" release and easy to clean, and really easy to set with no accidents. I found though they do self-release if there is heavy vibration close by. Caught 20 mice and one missing trap (suspect a rat running around somewhere with a trap stuck on its head haha) so...far in 2 days. Love these traps and don't listen to negative reviews from people who don't know how to use them properly. The bait area is not meant to have anything other than a solution, or what I use is Peanut butter... dont use cheese as they will pick that up easy and run off with it. Trust me... use peanut butter and your on a winner here. Edit: since using this trap for a few months I can add one more tip... Peanut butter is definitely the best bait as my mice and rats love it and smell it from a mile away, but I found that I need to allow the peanut butter to age a bit and go hard, othertwise the critters can lick it off sometimes without getting caught.
- Verified purchase
The spikes for the bait do not securely hold anything. All I managed to do was feed the little critters. I am taking the back for a refund. The manufacturers email address email@example.com does not work and neither does their web form on their webpage. Tomorrow during office hours I will try the phone number on the pack.

Questions & Answers
How do you get the mousetrap to work when it triggers itself before you even get it in position. Some of the ones we bought works really well but the others triggers themselves. Any suggestions on how to get it to stay set.
I posted this review about a year ago but see that the same questions still come up. I suggest that you read the reviews first where you will probably find your answer. Just Google 'safe n Sure Mousetraps'. Here is my original review. Read a couple of negative reviews and I understand exactly what happened. Some of these traps are too sensitive, others not sensitive enough. The solution is quite simple. If it is too sensitive, use super glue to glue a small weight (test to see how heavy a weight is needed before glueing) on top of the rear flap or use Blue Tac. If not sensitive enough, cut some short strips of cardboard (from breakfast cereal packet etc and again test how many needed) to glue underneath the rear flap to hold it a little higher which increases the sensitivity. So easy to set - my wife or grandchildren can set them without fear of getting a finger caught. We catch at present up to 13 mice per night - 90% in these traps, 10% in the old wooden ones which I also use. They are just super. Hope my comments help you.
Are these safe N Sure mouse traps available in stores?
I bought two traps and on two nights the bait was taken (sultana then peanut butter)
but the traps did not go off. Maybe some trick in setting them? The bait pad seems
loose when set and requires a tap with a spoon to actually set if off... Any ideas?
I had this same problem with one of my traps. No matter what I tried I couldn't get it to work. The other mousetrap caught the mouse by a leg and broke the leg = tortured mouse. I tried every which way to contact the company and couldn't get onto anybody. My Solution.... threw both traps in the bin!
