- Verified purchase
There is very little to be said. The trap will not stay open, but just snaps shut whatever I do. The manufacturer/distributor did not bother to return telephone calls. This product and company is rubbish. It needs to be withdrawn from sale so as to not waste customers time.
Don't waste your time or money
Does not stay set. Disappointing - As encouraged, purchased Australian designed product and this just makes me question doing so. Also annoying that Woolworths continues to sell an inadequate product. Do they not review their products?
Definitely not worth buying. Impossible to set just keeps on tripping as soon as let go.
Spent hours trying to set it up, following instructions on the box to the letter.
Just could not be set up to use the product, about to try for a refund.
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
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.

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!
