They Work Well!
These traps work great! I've been using Snap-E mouse traps for about a year now and they have worked good for me: catching a couple hundred mice in about a year's time. However, I had three mice that had learned to raid the traps without setting them off. After several weeks of this, I'd had enough. The Better Mousetrap caught those three clever mice the very first night. Another thing I like about The Better Mousetrap is that after it's set off, another mouse can't come by and steal the bait. This is very convenient when there's multiple mice in an area. Overall, this is a very effective mouse trap and I highly recommend it.
Update: After three days of use, I recommend these over Snap-E mouse traps. I set the better mouse trap in places where the Snap-E has always come up empty handed and bait-less, and The Better Mousetrap held mice in its teeth. Not only this, but this morning I they had caught two large field mice! I recommend The Better Mousetrap over Snap-E, neck and neck, The Better Mousetrap surged ahead and outperformed it's competition.

Best trap ever.
Wow, I didn't expect these cheap looking traps to be this good. These may look cheap, but they work great. I have one under the sink that we've been catching a mouse every day. The weather cooled off and they just keep coming. I can trap about a dozen mice before I have to bait it again. It's easy to bait, easy to set, easy to release the dead mouse into the trash, then set again. I'm going to put a second one under the sink right now.

So the first night I put these out one sprung but with no mouse. A few weeks later I moved the traps downstairs and one trap caught one. By the foot. So the mouse wedged itself underneath some furniture with its broken leg all night, very much alive. I had to stick a glue trap on top of the mouse and then put it out of its misery outside. I'm just going to stick (ha) to the glue traps because they are cheaper and stop the mouse from hiding somewhere. These traps are just an overpriced no kill joke.

Finally found one that works!!
I tried two other types of traps on AlumiGogo that have lots of ratings, but found that both of these did not work for me. I have video evidence that shows mice running right over the other traps without triggering the trap. These traps on the other hand do not have as strong of a spring which allows the trigger mechanism to be extremely sensitive. Another thing that i noticed is that they do not seem to clamp down on the mouse as hard, meaning that you do not get bleeding and other unmentionable stuff where you do not want it. One thing about all traps, you need to position the front of the trap up against something (baseboard, box, etc.) so that they mouse cannot reach the bait without stepping on the trigger. Another thing I found works very well is to make a cardboard / duct tape 3 sided enclosure to help block the sides of the trap from access and put the bait (peanut butter) at the very back of the trigger mechanism. Since doing this I have found these to be very effective.

needs some teeth.
I like the design, but everything has escaped.

A small modification and this is the best mouse trap ever
The real beauty of the trap is that it has a feather touch so no more letting the mice get a free meal because the trap won’t snap. I glue 2-4 small tacks on the front of the mouse trap and 1-2 tacks each side about 1/2 inch from the corner.
See the attached pictures.

Two with one trap!
Excellent. I've tried a variety of highly rated traps. This is by far the easiest to bait, easiest to reuse, easiest to empty. We can often put a trap back down without doing anything but dumping a mouse of it and it will catch another mouse the next night. We have a severe infestation right now, and I think the pic I'm going to include speaks for itself.

I hated having to use these things, but little did I know how glad I'd be that they come in 6 packs. I've never had a mouse problem until this past winter, when I started to notice their little calling cards around my kitchen. I placed them in the areas that were trafficked and got one that first night. I thought the work was done but a couple days later I got another. A few days after that, I nabbed 5 while I was away at work.
They're easy to set, easy to reuse (if you want), and highly effective. Like some others, I managed to catch a mouse using a trap that had little to no bait on it. It had caught a mouse previously, and I just set it back in the same spot with whatever little residue was left. Apparently it was enough.
In terms of cleanup, I'm not a super squeamish person, but I'll admit that I wanted no parts of the wire traps, and cleaning up the little massacre that these things created was not fun. No guts or anything like that, but still kind of a grizzly sight. A couple deep breaths and a pair of kitchen gloves got the job done though. You never come anywhere near the little mouse corpses when you're emptying the traps, but still it made me feel better.
All in all, I can't imagine a trap working better. Especially for the price. I hope you get them and only have to use them once :)

Best reusable trap ever
Best reusable trap ever. I've caught dozens of mice in each trap. I've had two instances where I caught a tiny mouse by the leg, but I think with any mouse trap you will occasionally have a mouse that gets caught the wrong way. These are super easy to set and kill pretty instantly.

Caught 5 mice with them (4 were dead but 1 was still alive in the trap)
I would have to give it a great review. I noticed mice in my apartment and ordered the product which came after a few days. I set the traps and used "TOM CAT GEL" also bought from AlumiGogo as the bait in the trap. I placed the traps in all areas that I saw activity. At first I was disappointed because for 2 days no mice were trapped. Then 5 mice were caught in roughly 4 to 5 days. Of the 5 that were caught, 1 was still alive as the trap came down on his leg and tail and not the back. So I put some gloves on and placed the mouse+trap in a waste paper basket and threw him out in the building's garbage chute. It was not an easy task mentally and I was afraid that the trap might get unlocked during the trip from the floor to the waste paper basket to the garbage chute but fortunately it remained locked. I threw out the trap and live mouse together so now I have 5 traps left. After the 5 mice were caught, the mice activity stopped. Seeing is believing so I uploaded pictures of 3 of the 5 mice that were caught. Be warned that you will see most of the mouse after the trap has caught them. If you are squeamish about mice or live animals in general it may be hard for you to throw them out. It does get easier each time, however.
