Review Rategood and useful purchase
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.
Review RateVery good traps. They work right and are inexpensive.
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.
Review RateCatching the right one at the he right time.
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?
Review Rategood mechanical skills to assemble...
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.
Review RateWorks great, no sharp edges, good price.
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.
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.
Review RateCan't your engineers build a better cat trap
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.

Review RateBest traps ever.
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.
Review RateReliable safe trap
I have trapped over 38 feral cats with the magnetic handle trap from Havahart. Been successful each time. My experience is positive and I don't have time and effort to waste so this trap is reliable.
Review RateNot a product I can recommend
I bought this trap as to help our feral rescue group, which we must run on a shoestring. Having trapped feral and abandoned cats and kittens for 15 years, my partners and I found this trap to be poorly designed to the point that it is not functional due to poor reliability. [Disclosure: several of us are engineers, and the trap is set up properly, per instructions.] The trip plate often slips after being set (so that it doesn't trip), and we found it takes a much stronger force than the weight of a stray cat to trip the plate when it is properly set. We wasted many precious hours and lost at least one pregnant queen due to the poor design and construction of this trap. It must be noted that the cut metal ends of the frame are sharp and catch on material as well. The trap end is also not square - meaning that the angles are not right angles, and the end flap does not fit well. We have had to purchase a replacement trap from a different vendor - with funds that could have gone towards TNR. Extremely disappointing.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
