Reprogram your buttons to customize your Mousetrapper to your needs – with MT Keys.

Slide the power switch on the underside to ON. Once the Mousetrapper is discoverable, you will see a flashing blue light. Pair your Mousetrapper via the computer’s Bluetooth menu. Once it is paired to the computer, the blue light will flash rapidly and then stop flashing.

Connect the supplied cable to the socket on the left side of your Mousetrapper, and connect the other end to a USB port on the computer.

The battery in the Mousetrapper needs charging when the battery indicator flashes red. Connect the Mousetrapper using the supplied USB cable and allow it to charge. During charging the LED will flash green and turn solid green when fully charged.

Basic tips

Make sure you keep your Alpha updated with the latest firmware. To update the firmware, launch MT Keys with the cable connected. Click the cloud in the upper part of MT Keys and follow the instruction. During the update process the LED will flash red and green. Do not disconnect the cable during this process.

To scroll using the control pad, place your finger on the right edge of the control pad. There is no need to press on the control pad; simply slide your finger up or down the edge, depending on which way you want to scroll.

The Mousetrapper Alpha can be paired to two separate devices at the same time. One on Channel 1 and one on Channel 2. This means that you for instance can switch between your computer and your smart tv or phone. To switch between the channels press Fn and Ch.1/F1 or Ch.2/F2 at the same time. When pairing the LED will flash blue for Channel 1 and double flash blue for Channel 2.

The Alpha remembers and reconnects up to four devices. When pairing to a fifth, the oldest will be cleared from memory.

To clear all bluetooth devices in memory press Fn and Del at the same time. The LED will rapidly flash pink to confirm that the memory is cleared.

The product is configured for PC on delivery. To configure it for Mac, press the lower right and lower left buttons (Copy and Paste) at the same time as you click on the control pad for 3–4 seconds. The LED will flash fast in pink to confirm the setting. Repeat the procedure to change back into PC mode. The LED will flash slow in pink to confirm the PC mode setting.

Customising the button functions

We understand the importance of a customized user experience. Just as some people want their screen at a specific angle or their table at a specific height, we believe it should be easy to customize a computer mouse. Thanks to our app, you can make your Mousetrapper unique by configuring the key functions to suit the way you work.

MT Keys makes working with a computer easier!
