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.
Sensitivity Screw to Target Specific Sized Animals
This sensitivity screw allows you to tailor the trip force of the trap to the target animal. For small animals like opossums that require more sensitivity to trip the trap, turn the sensitivity screw to the left (-). Larger animals like raccoons need less sensitivity, so turn the screw to the right (+), generating a less sensitive trip action. The sensitivity screw gives you the opportunity to catch only the animals you want.

Review RateBad trap
Even on the most sensitive setting, the trigger is too slow. This trap is not an improvement on the original. While i trapped 13 raccoons last month, with only two nights of a coon getting the bait and backing out....THIS new trap has not caught one raccoon yet, and i've been just feeding them!! for the past week. Not a good contraption at. all. !!!!! i wish i'd not have wasted the money i paid for it.Response From Havahart®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreat quality and design
This trap brings my ownership of Havahart traps to a total of 6. Each one working just needed more for the > of the number of varmints on the farm. This last one is awesome easy to set. Would like to suggest that you incorporate a small lockable door above bait area for better and easier placement of bait.
Review RatePretty good traps
Have caught most of the squirrels in my area and one skunk. Good traps. Will consider you again if I need further traps. Thx
Review RateEasy Open Door
The easy set door is easy to set but the easy set door is also an easy open door for a large belligerent racoon or armadillo. This is in regards to the model 1085 trap. The model 1079 is a better trap and has never failed yet.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Found trap easy to set up, adjustable tension was good. Worked very well.
Review RateEasy to use
So far I haven't caught the coon. Still trying did catch a cat. Matter of time. I also have your small trap caught so many Chipmunks I can't count them.
Review RateDoor locking failed
I bought model 1085 trap but found out it has same problem with the door locking mechanism. The metal rod slipped off from the plastic stopper at the bottom of the door and raccoon escaped. It would hold the door better if there was a groove along the stopper to lock in the metal rod.Response From Havahart®Kristen : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing your feedback.
Review RateNot very effective
When I first got the trap, the gate would not fall. There was no clearance between the gate and the side of the trap, and the gate would jam. I bent some of the wires on the side of the trap outward, and solved that problem. However, the trip plate is not very sensitive. It is also not stiff enough, and one side will push to the floor without tripping the trap. It is easy to set, but since it only works about half time, that's not much of an advantage.Response From Havahart®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We assure you, our traps should function as designed without any modifications, and we're happy to honor our one-year replacement policy for this trap. If you find that the trap is not sensitive enough for the animal you're trying to catch, we recommend placing an extra bit of weight, such as a pebble or a few rocks, on the bait plate.
