Collapsible and Space-Saving

A big trap can take up a lot of space in your shed or garage when you aren't using it. That's why Havahart® offers a large-sized trap that folds away for better storage. It's easy to collapse, and easy to put together when you're ready to set it up. No trap is more convenient.

Safe for You and the Animal

For You: A solid door and handle guard protect you from contact with a trapped animal, and the carrying handle allows you to hold the trap away from your body while an animal is inside.

For the Animal: A strong door lock keeps the animal safely in the trap, while smooth, rolled internal edges prevent injuries to animals as they are being transported or as they struggle to escape.

Havahart® Traps are Built to Last

Havahart® builds the strongest, most durable traps with premium materials, intended to endure harsh weather and unpredictable animal behavior. Traps are constructed of industrial-strength, one-piece wire mesh, which is galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. A solid door and steel reinforcements add to the durability of the trap, ensuring an even longer trap life.

good product By bee

i've use'd the 1089 model for years and had no problem. I read another person's review that said it would not hold up to a thrashing animal. To solve that problem I put zip ties around all the corners and where the sides meet. I probably put 40 in all which was probably more than needed. I only traped a few cats and the zip ties made the cage very, very strong. I rarely use my cage so I'm trying to figure out how to collapse it to save space.

Frustrating By Bo

I am already on my second #1045. I purchased it over a year ago at a local feed & seed to replace the one which eventually would not hold its shape even after tweaking it back into proper shape repeatedly (which weakens it even more). About every 3rd armadillo catch would escape by causing the square shape to open up and thus release the door latch. When I research for a different trap I discover this has been an ongoing problem for YEARS with these traps and all you guys do is blame not checking often enough, how they get scared and reference the 1 year warranty. Cop-outs!! FIX THE PROBLEM! I set it at dusk and check at dawn, sneak up and shoot them in the trap while they are still asleep. So can't blame anything but design and manufacturer choice of materials for fabrication. We would like ALL be willing to pay more for a RELIABLE DURABLE WELL DESIGNED armadillo trap. You should STOP saying it will trap armadillos. I will be looking elsewhere or start using one of the wood traps out there. Meanwhile you should stop falsely advertising.

Not Recommended for Full-Size Adult Armadillos By Ralph

I purchased this specific-size cage to capture Raccoons and Armadillos that destroy my wife's vegetable garden. We've trapped several adult Raccoons and a couple of mid-sized Armadillos since then. However, yesterday, we managed to trapped a huge Armadillo and when we checked on it after 30 minutes, it managed to break the door hinge off and escape! So, now, we have a Havahart cage that has a broken trap door (useless) and this one adult Armadillo still on the loose around our vegetable garden.

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. Once an animal is trapped, we recommend relocating the animal and releasing it as quickly as possible. Armadillos in particular are known to try to escape after some time, digging into the bottom of the trap or running into the trap walls..

Our Consumer Relations Team is happy to provide additional assistance. Please contact us at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242).

Works great By Dirt worshipper

I have caught opossums, raccoons, and now gophers with this trap. Works great. I did have a raccoon get out the back end once, but I am pretty sure I didn't close it properly. The only drawback is that it can be a little bit of a pain opening the back door to release the animal. I have used it for years and it has held up fine, very durable.

Excellent product By Canoehead
This is exactly what I needed, arrived quickly, and easy to store. I needed time with the instructions to set it up, but if you follow them, it does work. Looks durable enough to be used for years.
