2. Setting: While holding base of trap, twist top cover in clockwise rotation (in direction of arrow) until it locks. A red indicator will show through the hole marked “Set” on the top of the trap. A mouse entryway will open in front.

3. Placement: GENTLY place set trap (d-CON® label up) on hard surface near wall, or in areas where mice are active. For best results, place two or more d-CON® traps 4-6 feet apart where you see or suspect mice.

Note: If trap is accidentally triggered, a red indicator will show at the “Not Set” position. Repeat the instructions at Step 2 (“Setting”) if this occurs.

11. How do Mouse Traps Work?

d-CON® Ultra Set Snap Traps: Simply lift the front cover and place the bait in the round bait cup inside the trap, then close the cover. Place the trap on a flat surface and slowly pull the lever all the way down and gently release until it locks securely in place. When the mouse tries to steal the bait, the spring loaded mechanism is triggered, and a metal bar will snap and kill the rodent.

d-CON® No View, No Touch Trap: On the bottom of the No View, No Touch trap, peel back the small self-adhesive label to apply bait. While holding base of trap in a horizontal position, twist top cover in a clockwise rotation. A red indicator will show through the hole marked "Set" on top of the trap as the trap clicks in to place. A mouse entry way will open in front for the mouse to enter the trap. Once the mouse enters the trap and tries to eat the bait, it will release a trigger so that the trap snaps shut closing the entry point and killing the mouse. Simply dispose of the entire trap without having to see the mouse.

d-CON® Quick Kill Glue Trap: Pull the lever on the curved back of the trap and lift upwards until the lever locks in to the top "Set" position. No need to bait these Quick Kill Glue Traps and once a mouse is caught, discard the entire trap.

d-CON® Glue Traps: For these traps, no bait is needed. Simply place these traps along a wall or baseboard where you have seen or suspect mice to travel and wait. Rodents will get caught in the trap and be unable to move, allowing you to quickly dispose of them.
