Bought the trap and caught 10 mice over 2 weeks, one and two at a time. After the second or third use, one gnawed his way through the plastic to get out the back. Reinforced that gap with a piece of a soda can and rubber bands.
Subsequent visitors launched a wholesale attack on the plastic around the entry doors, rendering the trap useless.
So, the trap is effective and reusable as long as you check it frequently and empty it. I did not let more than 12 hours pass between checks.
Anyone reading this that thinks they only have one wayward mouse, be advised that's what I thought too...
Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality

Response from Home DepotBy THD-CS, January 20, 2015
Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, "This trap can hold up to four mice at a time, a nice option if the infestation is bigger than originally thought. For best results, we do recommend checking the traps frequently. Once mice are caught, they will work to find a way out. We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to make it right.
Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance. We look forward to hearing from you and offering further help.

We saw a tiny mouse come out from under our oven/stove on Sunday night. This is the first time in my adult life that I've ever had to catch a mouse. I really didn't want to kill it, it was very cute... but I didn't want it breeding in my house either. Did some research and decided to try this live mouse trap. I bought it after work, arrived home at 5, set the trap by 5:30 with peanut butter, and when I checked at 8:30 our little mouse friend was inside! I thought I would hear some struggling or other sign of distress, but he was really quiet. We released him a couple of miles away in a wooded area. I feel a bit bad that we can't coexist but I have a toddler and dog and their health is paramount. Anyway, I was really impressed with this trap and hope I don't have to use it again!
Yippee, caught the mouse that was eating my car wiring. I put peanut butter in the trap. He/she looked so fluffy and cute, but the poor thing was reluctant to be let go in the 10 degree weather, had to shew him away on the snow into a field. I couldn't stand the thought of using a killing trap, this one works great and is re-usable (about the size of a video tape), just rinse with the hose. The glue traps are also cruel, they would die a slow death. All creatures deserve humane treatment. Great product!
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Strong, Good Shape, humane mouse trap
This trap is VERY effective. We cought 15 mice in 4 days with three traps. The traps filled with 3-4 mice on the first night. I slid open the trap inside a plastic bag over the garbage can, and captured all the mice inside. Then the bag went into the trash. VERY economical. To reset the trap, I washed it and put new bait in it. There are a lot of droppings in the trap, so wear gloves and a mask to avoid contamination.
They get smart, though, so buy several traps and place them at once. We didn't trap them all, and now the population has increased again! SO, more traps. This time, I think that I will simply allow the trap to fill with mice and throw it away. It's cleaner and safer for me because I don't have to sterilize the sink and use gloves all the time.
Note: The top of the trap slides off awkwardly. It has a latching mechanism that has to line up perfectly, or it won't open/close completely. If the lid sticks, simply jiggle it as you slip it off the trap. The ramps have to be able to allow the mouse in and then tip up so it can't escape. Be sure that when you are baiting the trap, you check the ramps.
From other comments below I followed recommendations of wearing gloves so the mouse cannot smell human scent and used chunky peanut butter with a small corner of dark chocolate. Might be overkill, but it works and keeps the mouse busy for a good second before he realizes he's trapped so there's little chance he'll turn back without springing the mechanism. The trap worked perfectly and kept the mouse secured until I could relocate it. There's arrows that show you which way to open when you relocate them and it's not difficult to open. Simple, no fuss, and we're both happy. More people should opt for these traps.
Used this trap in a lower kitchen cabinet drawer where I’ve noticed chewed straws and plastic bags along with mouse droppings. Used a pinch of bread as bait and placed the trap before going to bed. Over the last 10 days I’ve found a mouse every morning in the trap, once two mice. Once a mouse chewed through the top corner and escaped, but two pieces of duct tape covered that up as the picture shows. It does take a few tries to get the lid on properly and it could have been made of a clearer plastic as it’s sometimes hard to see a mouse in there (shine a flashlight up through the bottom). And you have to clean it out after use so wear latex gloves and run it under the faucet with hot water. As another review mentioned, you only think you have one mouse but you probably have quite a few.
If you're an animal lover and just can't bring yourself to use a traditional mousetrap, this is a great way to catch and release. We caught 3 mice within 24 hours! Now I can release them safely in a field somewhere. The glue traps are just too cruel in my opinion. So this is a great alternative.
I have a mouse problem (live in the mountains) I'm a vegetarian and am a huge animal rights activist. So when I actually found something humane with good reviews I begged my dad to try these before killing them. It took about a month till they weren't scared of the traps and we started catching them. Note: I wouldn't put the peanut butter or bate you're using where it indicates to. There's a higher chance of catching the mouse if they have to walk completely to the end to get to it. It is also very tinted and often you don't realize you have a mouse in it until you look from the bottom, use a flash light, etc. These are not dog proof, as I have learned so I've found places my dog can't reach to put the traps. The most important thing about these is buying an amount you can keep up with. You need to be able to check the traps daily or you'll end up with a bunch of mice that starved to death so don't buy 10 traps if you can't check every one every day. I am very happy with this. I was skeptical at first but now that they're used to seeing the traps we keep catching them!
I highly recommend this product. It's so simple to use and works like a dream. I can't believe how efficient it is. I didn't want to kill the little creatures - just return them outside. The plastic box is semi translucent so when held up to a light I could see if anything was inside. The instructions say to use peanut butter as bait, but I had almost instant success with a piece of cheese.
This trap worked great. I had been noticing my dog's food disappearing overnight, so I got suspicious and bought a few traps. I baited it with dog food and peanut butter and caught the little kibble stealing critter in hours. I would not recommend using it more than once, however. Even after only being in there a few hours, that tiny mouse produced so much excrement, there was no way I wanted to clean it up and re-use it. The price is low enough, just go buy another one.
I didn't think this trap would work at first because it was so inexpensive but I didn't want to kill the mouse so I gave it a try. I baited it with peanut butter and five days later I caught my mouse. I was able to release it into the woods and did not have to come in contact with it. Great product!!!
Just bought one of these yesterday because we had the signs of a mouse in our kitchen, and by this morning we had caught our critter! I was worried that I hadn't followed other reviews to use gloves as I was setting the trap up (to keep human scent off of the trap), but it apparently didn't make a difference. It's my first time catching mice, and it couldn't have been easier. And the little guy was so cute; I'm glad we didn't need to kill him. And the trap is very easily cleaned, sanitized, and reset. Though, if you find cleaning mouse poo gross, it's so cheap you could easily dispose of it after use.
Set one up with PB under the kitchen sink in the evening. The next morning, a family of 4 little field mice were trapped inside. There was still quite a bit of room even with the 4 of them; then again, they are very tiny.
I released them in a field and noticed how wet they were with their own urine and feces. There was a lot in the trap so I threw it away because I don't really have anywhere to clean it. However, the trap is clean-able and re-usable if you have somehwere to clean it.
When releasing them, bring a disposable bag to place the trap in afterwards and wear disposable gloves in case there is a lot of urine/feces (100 for $1 in the cheaper stores). Like many other animals, they can carry lots of stuff so definitely clean hands and all areas involved when finished!
I'll definitely use this again in the future. Totally humane.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality

Review 16 for Multi-Catch Live Mouse Trap
can't catch this mouse
PostedMay 29, 2015
No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought this because of the reviews. It has been set up for 2 weeks and I can't catch this mouse. It's easy to set up, but that mouse is still running around.
This is a nice option if you want to humanely remove mice from your house. Use real processed peanut butter to bait them. Natural peanut butter didn't work for 2 weeks but as soon as I switched, I caught 2 mice in 2 days.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality
Cons: door mechanism

Review 18 for Multi-Catch Live Mouse Trap
Mice Are Too Smart
PostedSeptember 13, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
Set three of these traps against walls as directed. Have not caught one mouse in over a week. Did notice mouse terd just next to one of them, apparently the mouse gave us a message of his opinion of our trapping attempts.
Pros: Easy to Install
Cons: Not Durable, does not work, mouse pooped next to it
I used peanut butter inside the trap but I also smeared a tiny bit on the metal piece at the entrance of the trap! The first time I used this trap was last yr and I just put the peanut butter inside the trap and it didn't work so I threw it out. I tried again this year and Iike I said I smeared the peanut butter on the metal entrance piece and I caught two the first night. So try that before you give up on the trap!
This is a nice mouse trap if you are looking for something that does not kill the mouse. It worked perfectly for me. I had trouble with a mouse in the garage which destroyed all the plant and grass seeds. So I found this trap in the local store and set it up using walnuts for bait (suggested by the HD sales guy). Took a couple of days but got that sucker trapped. Very easy to get rid of the mouse and reusable. Like it a lot. Hope I won't have to deal with another mouse ever but incase one find its way, I will be prepared.
