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 and in one quick motion. Easy Set® also allows you to release a trapped animal safely from the back of the trap - you never have to touch the door or come near the animal. Plus, updated sturdy hardware provides additional comfort, security and durability.


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a real catcher i 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trap Order 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A help for my "wild" summer This 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works exactly as advertised Great 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Eye Opener I 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Havahart Large 1-Door Easy Set Trap Havahart has always made the best live traps, and now with the Easy Set feature, they made the best even better! Just pull the handle on top to set, and do the same to release the critters! It doesn't get any more simple than that! Kudos and thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from design flaw that can be fixed basic theory of the trap is great, however I have modified the trap with 100% success rate, just wanted to let you know that your product can do better.

I have two of large ezset cages. The raccoons have destroyed both. They somehow bend the steel rod attached to the pressure plate and bend the pressure plate. The pressure plates are bent so bad that I can no longer set the traps.Can I fix them?

Asked by: TCutter
We apologize for this experience. Animals can become panicked when inside a trap for periods of time. We recommend checking the trap frequently so an animal can be released as soon as possible. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) so we may offer additional assistance.

I have been trying to trap a ground hog. This critter can go into the collapse-able, single-door, large Havahart trap and trips the door closed, but after eating all of the bait apparently simply pushes the door open and escapes ! What can I do ???

Asked by: TRForbus
We recommend testing the door to see if it locks shut when closed. It is possible that the groundhog is not fully inside the trap when the door closes. If this occurs, they may be able to back out of the cage before the door locks. Please contact us directly at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242). We would like to learn more about this experience and offer further assistance.

Spacing between wires?

Asked by: Gray
This cage is constructed with the majority of the openings approximately one inch by one inch. There are several rows with slightly larger spacing, one inch by two inches.

May I purchase a slide-in divider that works with the large easy-release trap? It only seems to come with the feral cat trap, but I don't want the bother of putting one together. It would be handy for feeding and watering cats before and after trapping.

Asked by: Shuska
At this time, the divider is only available with our Havahart® Feral Cat Trap Rescue Kit, model 1099. We apologize for any inconvenience.
