Set and Release with One Hand
This trap can be set in just 1 simple step. Just pull back the patented Easy Set® lever to 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 for more information.
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. Additionally, the rigid plastic carrying handle gives you better control and provides more comfort when handling large animals.
Safe, Rolled Metal Edges that Protect the Animal
Easy Set® traps are constructed of one-piece wire mesh, galvanized for resistance to rust and corrosion. The edges are polished smooth to protect the animal from injuring itself during transport.
No-Escape Door Locks Give You Peace of Mind
Our strong spring-loaded door features an updated lock with added reinforcements, making your groundhog trap more escape-proof than ever.

Review RateForget About Catching Raccoons
This is a great trap for possums; they are docile and just lie down and wait after they're caught. But raccoons bust their way out, first eating the bait and leaving the door closed behind them. I've lost five that way so far. I'm giving it two stars because of the possum effectiveness; for raccoons, it's a zero.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratea real catcheri empathized with the groundhog,and i was trapped! [as was a rabbit] the quality and durability is exceptional. the trap will last longer than my last 45 year old one.even that one would have lasted longer had i not run over it with the tractor. keep up the good work!
Review RateOh my, how well this works!!!!I received my cage and put it out there in the backyard and withen twenty minutes had caught the cat and the next morning took her and had her spayed and her ear notched so that everyone can tell she has been fixed. Next there are three babies to catch and get spayed or neutered. This neighborhood thanks you very much for your perfect, safe cages. No problems, just great results!!
Review RateGreat trapOrder two traps and had them in two days. Set both and in less than a week i caught a raccoon. I really like the ease of setting the trap and releasing the raccoon after relocation.
Review RateA help for my \"wild\" summerThis has been a summer of the invasion of "wild" animals to my backyard in a city residential area of central Massachusetts. Thanks to the Havahart medium sized traps I caught 27 animals for relocation....squirrels, skunks and a juvenile raccoon. Yesterday I received my large easy set and have already caught my first adult raccoon!! I am 65 and live alone. Proud of myself and so happy with the Havahart products that I own!!
Review RateBig Racoon broke this cage and escape!I got a contractor to set a trap for the Raccoon break in my roof. Know what? We caught it in night! But in the morning it escaped!Response From Havahart®Tara : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe appreciate the time taken to share this feedback and apologize for your experience. The longer an animal stays in a cage the more hungry, anxious, and frightened they get. We recommend releasing the raccoon as soon as possible.
It is very important to check on your trap periodically to ensure your animal does not remain inside the cage for an elongated period of time.
The traps are covered by a one year warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for further assistance.
Review RateWorks exactly as advertisedGreat purchase! Saved a bunch by DIY with this idiot proof trap.
Trap is extremely sturdy. Groundhog has nowhere to go. Felt comfortable transporting it that he had nowhere to go.
Website gave tips that helped in the capture. Sturdy sturdy sturdy. Well worth it.
Review RateDisappointed, and really tired
Our target is raccoons. Eight came at 3:30am. We watched them from the upstairs window, heard the trap go clunk, went down to check - success. For a while we heard rattling (the trap was weighted down), saw pairs of glowing eyes around the trap. When I went downstairs at first light, the trap was empty. This has happened twice. Is there another design that latches more securely?Response From Havahart®Tara : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize this experience and appreciate the feedback. Once an animal is caught we recommend releasing it as soon as possible. The longer an animal is trapped, the longer it will grow anxious, frightened, and hungry.
Please contact our Consumer Relations Team directly at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) as we would like to learn more about this experience.
Review RateAn Eye OpenerI purchased two of your large, easy-set traps because I suspected I had a serious nighttime raccoon invasion on my hands. Little did I know! On the first night in service, these traps corralled not two, but THREE of these pesky critters. By morning one trap held one and a second trap held two. And the easy-set feature is priceless. Am I satisfied? Absolutely. Positively. Yes indeedy. You bet!
Review Rateworks with adjustments
I bought this trap to capture and relocate a 25-30 lb. raccoon. Raccoons are very smart so he was able to reach in and eat the food without entering the trap. I had to box the end of the trap so the raccoon could not reach the food without entering the trap. Once inside the trap he was able to reach under the trap door. I had to secure the trap door closed so he would not be able to push it open during transport. I do not think the spring on the trap door is strong enough to hold the door closed once the animal is inside. Getting the door secured closed is tricky once the animal is inside because it can reach through the cage and hurt your hand.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this valuable feedback, Bobbi. We are glad you were able to relocate the raccoon. For the safety of both the trap owner and the animal, we recommend wearing gloves and covering the trap with a blanket or cloth. If the animal seems especially agitated or scared, approach the trap slowly while holding a blanket in front of you to help keep it calm.
