Cat trap a trap itself By Robert

Hard to assemble and once assembled, not a very good trap. I sent it back AT MY EXPENSE.

Excellent By Thomas

Well constructed. Caught the little stray cat the 2nd morning. Had to lighten the trigger because the cat was so light. Would recommend this trap.

good and useful purchase By Vladimir

I bought two traps 1099 model. They work pretty well and it was easy to set them in working position directly from the box. The back door of one of them was a bit too long and it was difficult to open and close it. So I had to use a grinder to cut outstanding wires shorter. This is all what I can say negative about this useful device. i appreciated a piece of cloth that comes together with a trap. It is dark and porous enough for ventilation. In the summer this feature will be especially important for the cats' comfort. Over all - thanks for good buy.

Very good traps. They work right and are inexpensive. By Howard

The traps are sturdy and work just right. I was concerned when I unpacked the two traps I purchased. The ends were curved and I didn't know if that was the way it was packed, or something happened during shipping. However, after setting up the traps, they were just fine. I recommend having strong needle nose pliers ready so you can adjust the trip mechanism bar where it connects to the front door. I had to adjust both traps for the right sensitivity. I have used traps from other makers though, and they always need adjustment too, so this is normal. I recommend including instructions about this adjustment, because not everyone would know how to do this correctly. I have zero complaints about the traps. The price was very good for two traps and two dividers. I do have a complaint about the burlap covers. They had a strong smell and after airing them out for a week outside, I ended up tossing them. I believe you could wash them in diluted vinegar, but I have dark sheets that I use for trapping anyway, so no loss.

Catching the right one at the he right time. By Johniebegood.

The trap catches everything including the one not going yet? It's a learning experience. We have brought in Farrell mother and babies so there not out side getting pregnant first heat and all but we were only ketching the babies. There are 4 + 2 from previous litter. One not healthy and nothing we could do according to vet so we said good buy crying. Others are ok but in order to trap and get to the vet, sense all but one won't come close or be handled we have learned we need to separate when possible to get the primary mom first in, using food. Not easy she is so smart. Anyway with the Havahart trap we stand a good chance to get all fixed and back out side to play again. Thank you for such a great products to help with our fur friends that are so cute. Would be nice it your site could except pic of them?

good mechanical skills to assemble... By Dr. John Layton

Although I very good product; it comes in a flat box and you have to put it together. The instructions are not very clear nor precise. I figured it out and got it done, but I am far from the average person. Any average person would have great difficulty assembling the trap based on these very incomplete & lacking instructions. Because of this I would only recommend these to any experienced person or someone with good mechanical attitude.

Works great, no sharp edges, good price. By FireMom

The set up instructions for this trap are incomplete, but once you get it set, it works amazingly well. I disagree with anyone who says there are sharp edges. Even triggering the trap on my arm to test it caused no damage to my mature skin. I was happy to be able to transport a feral mom and her kittens to the local shelter. She has been neutered and released, and the babies are up for adoption. So glad this product is available and at such a low price. Thank you.

Positive By Papa john

My 82 year old handicap dad asked for your traps for his Christmas gift. No problem with him setting the traps from his wheelchair and he is very successful in his trappings. One happy man, protecting his chickens.

Can't your engineers build a better cat trap By AL

I almost had to contact you to figure out instructions for putting it together. I still have not had success with trapping and something is getting in the trap and eating the food. I think it's squirrels and they don't weigh enough to spring trap. I'm trying ideas to make it more sensitive to these light critters. I'm not real happy with trap, but suspect it's still the best on the market. Can't your engineers build a better trap.

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience and have shared this feedback with our Product Managers. To increase the sensitivity, we recommend adding something small onto the trigger plate such as a washer or a pebble. Tying the bait from the roof of the trap above the trigger plate or burying the bait under the trap also works well to ensure that the animal is fully inside the trap and has to maneuver on the trigger plate, increasing the chances of a catch.

Best traps ever. By nanamouse

After 2 1/2 years of TNR, I was down to 3 females at one colony, and 2 at the other. All 5 were true feral and extremely trap smart. They were very small girls, and were too light to trigger my traps. In desperation I purchased 2 of these traps, although they were much more expensive than the old ones. In 3 days I had all 5, plus an injured abandoned male. Someone recently borrowed one of my traps and caught a kitten that didn't even weigh 2 pounds! These are excellent, and the feeding door is pretty handy when you have to house a cat that is not at all domesticated.

Q.ho comprato una vostra trappola mod. 1099 ma non ci sono le istruzioni in italiano, dove posso reperirle? grazie

Currently, the instructions are available in English only. We apologize as we do not have an Italian translation available.

Q.Just put this thing together (1099). The trigger hook seems to be too short to secure the door at all, making it impossible to set. How do I fix this?

Please contact our Consumer Relations Team directly at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for troubleshooting assistance. Also, a video showing the setup can be viewed here.

Q.What us the difference between : 1099 (Large Feral Cat) Trap 1079B (Large 1-Door) Trap Are they both the same size? Are both models collapsible?

The 1099 trap is best used for feral cats. This trap is collapsible and includes special items for rescuing cats such as a burlap cover, back door and back door hook, and a divider. The 1079 trap is best used for nuisance animals such as raccoons, groundhogs, opossums, armadillos and can also be used for stray cats. This trap is not collapsible. Both traps are very close in size. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions or for further assistance.
