About

What is Mouse Dunk?

Mouse Dunk is a downright nifty little mousetrap that compacts hundreds of years of critter control trial and error into about four ounces of pure genius! Mouse Dunk utilizes the "walk the plank" method of capture, and is auto-resetting, meaning you catch one mouse after the other without having to ever touch the trap! 

Mouse Dunk offers both lethal and catch & release options, as well as an adjustable setting that allows you to capture a large variety of critters. It's collapsible, and has a sturdy built-in ramp that can be adjusted to fit different-sized containers. To make a long story short, Mouse Dunk is the ultimate mousetrap!

How does Mouse Dunk work?

This mousetrap employs the tried and true "walk the plank" method of capture. Here's a quick breakdown of what that looks like:

1. Mouse detects bait and climbs up ramp.

2. Mouse steps onto plank to retrieve bait.

3. Weight of mouse causes magnet to release, causing it to fall to bottom of container.

4. Counterweight auto-resets mousetrap.

Woalah!! A hands-free critter gitter that works over and over again without ever having to touch it!

Why Mouse Dunk?

Mouse Dunk is easy to use, effective, and inexpensive. Of course, it's not the only effective trap on the market. But as we've scoured the mouse trap world to figure out what the common qualms are, it's clear to see that many of today's leading models have some serious issues. Mouse Dunk resolves each of these issues with the following features:

Recently, we were fortunate enough to have Shawn Woods, the world-famous creator of Mousetrap Monday, review Mouse Dunk. Check out his review!

Blast from the Past

The "walk the plank" method of capture has been around since at least the early 1800's. Requiring only a bucket and a small piece of wood, these mousetraps provided a simple, cheap, and effective way to control mice.

The "walk the plank" method of capture has been around for at least 200 years.
The "walk the plank" method of capture has been around for at least 200 years.

A few years ago, Shawn Woods, undoubtedly the biggest name in the mousetrap world, released this viral video, drawing large amounts of attention to the "walk the plank" design. Although the design works, all of the hype has sparked a string of low-quality traps that have left many people disappointed. Broken parts, flimsy ramps, missing parts, you name it! 

And along came Mouse Dunk! Our mousetrap will blow you away by taking the best aspects of the "walk the plank" method of capture, resolving the issues in other designs, and doing what a mousetrap is supposed to do (catch mice...) better than any other trap!

Timeline

Here's a quick breakdown of Mouse Dunk's past, present, and future:

Prototyping

We went through several different versions of Mouse Dunk before arriving at the final design. Funny enough, the simplest version worked best.

The Team

Mouse Dunk's founder, Brigham (right), has always loved taking things apart, beginning with his family VCR during childhood. Brigham has already successfully run three Kickstarter projects, including the now world-famous Parrot Teleprompter. With a degree in manufacturing engineering and years of professional experience under his belt, Brigham brings an unparalleled amount of experience and know-how to the team. 

Mouse Dunk's co-founder, Nathan (left), is somewhat of an oddball. After years of school, including an MA in Spanish linguistics, he has come to the realization that entrepreneurship is where his true passion lies. That passion is what drives him to get things done in a timely way, making sure we meet all our deadlines.

Risks and challenges

As backers of Kickstarter projects ourselves, we know firsthand that backing anyone is a leap of faith. Our project, like any other project, has some risks involved. But if you check out our past KS campaigns, you'll see that we've got a good track record. We've done our best to keep our risks to an absolute minimum, and are committed to keeping it that way.
