Trapping Has Never Been Easier

Controlling wild raccoons, armadillos and other destructive animals has never been easier than with Easy Set® traps. Patented Havahart® technology allows you to set your trap with just one hand. With Easy Set® you can let a trapped animal go without ever touching the door. Plus, the updated sturdy hardware gives you additional comfort, security, and durability.

Collapsible and Space-Saving

A big raccoon live trap can take up a lot of space in your garage or shed when not in use. That's why Havahart® offers a trap that folds away for storage. It's simple to collapse, and easy to put together when you are ready to use it. No trap is more convenient.

Set and Release with One Hand

Set this trap in just 1 simple step. Just pull on the patented Easy Set® lever to lock open the door, and it's ready for a catch. Best of all, the lever also allows you to release the animal while standing away from the trap, clear of the animal's escape path. Check out our videos to learn more.

Enlarged Hand Guard and Carrying Handle Protect You

An enlarged steel plate covers the entire width of the top of the trap, protecting your hand from contact with the animal. Plus, the updated, rigid plastic carrying handle makes the handling experience even more comfortable for you.

Safe, Rolled Metal Edges Protect the Animal

Just like the Havahart® trap you've relied on for years, this one is constructed of one-piece wire mesh, galvanized for resistance to rust and corrosion. And edges are polished smooth to protect the animal from injuring itself during transport.

No-Escape Door Locks Give You Peace of Mind

The tight spring-loaded door features an updated door lock with added reinforcements, making your groundhog trap more escape-proof than ever.

Havahart® Large 1-Door Collapsible Easy Set® Trap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great trap!.. light,compact, fast and effective! I have been into TNR for feral cats for many years now, let me say this is the best trap available in the market today. Their best feature is the Easy-Set , even a child would know how to use it. Cons: poor packaging,many arrived crushed. Small details imply mediocre quality control, not a great deal if you are mechanically inclined, but.. what if you aren`t?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Animal Cage Bought this specific cage off the internet site because I could not find it locally in stores. The collapsable cage is ideal for storage. The BEST selling point in the 1-Step door open/close release system. No more worrying about getting your fingers close to animals leaving the cage. You need to play with the capture mechanism that closes the door after an animal trips the lever. When new it sticks a bit and does not slam down (the door) tightly at first. Other than that this was a great buy and the first time customer discount made this an excellent purchase. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Trap Bought two traps - door lock once trap is tripped not very positive - one trap damaged in shipment and bent spring bar that holds door shut - had to bend bar and realign spring - both traps not very positive lock after tripped ....stronger spring needed .........

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works!... Easy to assemble. Trap is weight based, and too sensitive if sloped the wrong way or unstable (if the animal shakes the trap before entering, it will trigger the trap). Make sure to lift the gate side a bit, so the trigger is not too sensitive. I was a complete novice but got the animal after three nights (the first two, he triggered without entering)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Armadillos lost! Bought two 1092 traps for an armadillo problem on my property. Set them up without bait outside their dens and the first night caught two. The only problem was they both escaped since the u-bar locking mechanism didn't hold the trap door tight and each armadillo was able to push until the door opened. To fix it - I put rubber bands around the u-bar to hold it tight and ensured that the spring trap mechanism was secured in place at the elbow of the u-bar with tape. The trap now works well with the door holding tight. I expect to catch another two armadillos tonight and this time having them in their respective cages tomorrow morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY HAPPY !!!! Purchased your Model 1092 trap yesterday at LOWE'S. Set-up the trap last night and caught 2 cats at the same time. I was totally surprised this morning. Reset the trap and caught our 3rd cat this afternoon.   Needless to say we have been keeping the animal catcher busy. The catcher even made a comment that he was going to send people to LOWE'S to purchase the trap. THANK YOU HAVAHART.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy to have my kitty back... My kitty got out and was gone for 7 weeks. I was finally able to locate her about a mile away. I spent the entire evening trying to lure her close enough to me to grab her. But, she was very scared and acting somewhat feral. I figured I need a better mouse trap.   So, I purchased a Havahart® Large Collapsible Easy Set Raccoon Trap at Bass Pro Shops. I set the trap with a bowl of wet food as bait. Then, I sat and waited. I was VERY temped to hit her with the spot light when I saw her smelling in and around the cage. Eventually, I heard the delightful sound of the door slamming shut.   I transported her back home, still in the cage. And, I am happy to say she is here sitting on my lap while I type this review. I thank Havahart for helping get my missing kitty back home with the use of their product. I couldn't have done it without them.

I recently purchased a 1092 easy set from a local retailer. After initial setup the unit almost "self trips" it is very difficult to get the unit to stay set - please assist,

Asked by: rather be fishing
The trap should stay set by pulling back firmly on the handle to the set position.

Is Model 1092 too large for squirrels?

Asked by: Rich
This model is best for larger animals such as armadillos, cats or raccoons and may not be triggered by a smaller animal such as a squirrel. For squirrels, our small or medium sized traps are often a better option.
