Kid- and Pet-Safe Mouse Trap Invented (MTN-2821)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Pitt Trap, to applicable companies for their consideration.

Whether it’s a home or a business, property damage often results when mice find their way inside. Conventional mouse traps, however effective, can be harmful to animals and humans and are often unpleasant to clean and reuse. That’s why an inventor from Bronx, N.Y., came up with a better alternative.

He developed the patent-pending PITT TRAP to provide a safe way to trap a mouse that was harmless to children and pets. As such, it allows the user to see the trapped mouse at a glance and dispose of it or release it without touching it, leaving no mess to clean up. Other appealing features are its convenience, effectiveness and affordable price. At the same time, it is portable, lightweight and easy to use and reuse. In addition, its simple design minimizes production costs.

The inventor’s personal experience inspired the idea. “I wanted a clean, simple and inexpensive way to get rid of mice that poses no danger to kids or pets,” he said.

The original design was submitted to the Manhattan office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
