Rated 1 out of 5Â by CHDesign Electronic Rat Killer
Good mouse trap but totally useless to kill rats which I bought it for. It needs to be at least twice the size for the rat to crawl inside and take the bait. Will be returned for full refund.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by honestguy Not just a rat trap
Well it definitely works on mice, i've caught 8!
I'm sure it would zap a small rat too?
I bought it as I heard what sounded like a heard of buffalo running around in the ceiling void!
It works ok but not durable enough for outside use. So it's a trap to use when they have 'let themselves in' not one one to catch them whilst they are scuttling around outside!!
The first one went back as one of the wires connecting to the metal plates hadn't been soldered/ crimped properly, Screwfix immediately replaced.

Read the great reviews so was fairly confident it will catch the rat. But it didn't.
I could actually watch the rat from the window moving around the trap - never got in and never got caught. For days he was leaving footprints around the room where I had the trap, never caught it. Biggest waste of money. I spent twice as much and got an exterminator to do the work.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by HiDiy Good But..
Have used similar device in past with success. Not disappointed this time.
But, unbelievably difficult to put in the C batteries. On first turning on - no green light. Rolled batteries , but no success.
Decided to leave switched on so could see light if successful and then carried on rolling batteries. Result = green light and a shock up right arm!
Placed trap, turned on (green light on and off). Next day first dead mouse.
Seems expensive for what it is and too soon to comment on reliability.
It works well but be careful!
For Proctor - why oh why such an awful 4-cell carriage. It appears a separate item in the machine so perhaps you can change it in new models.
