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.

Good with a limitation By trapper1

I like this model a lot more than others as it is easy to open with the handle/wire cable. We have lost a few raccoons (as mentioned in other reviews) but not all that often. What is unfortunate is that the cable used to open the door rusted enough so that it broke. How much more would it cost to use a quality stainless steel cable?

Forget About Catching Raccoons By stretch2

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.

Oh my, how well this works!!!! By hdcc
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!!

A help for my \"wild\" summer By Janet
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!!

Big Racoon broke this cage and escape! By RayX999
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 Representative
We 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.

Works exactly as advertised By Boomerf
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.

Disappointed, and really tired By debby

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.

Q.can I buy this trap from you as I live in the Philippines

We apologize, but our traps are currently not sold in the Philippines.

Q.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?

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.

Q.do you have a trap large enough to catch a beaver

Yes. We recommend or X-Large 1-Door Trap model #1081 for beavers.
