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.

catching racoons By Janet

We love animals, but when they come in the house and eat all the cat food, we can do without them. This summer a family of raccoons did just that. We ordered a Havahart trap, baited it with cat food and a marshmallow, and set it on the back porch. Sure enough, we caught the whole family, one at a time. After being trapped and released, they were no longer interested in coming around.

Yup, it works By Donna

Got the raccoon within a few days but not his portly partner in crime the garden-stripping groundhog... any suggestions?? Best bait? The alleged 'catnip' cantaloupe didn't do it,.

Trap is way too sensitive. Slightest touch to the cage sets it off. By RichCooper

The "easy reset" system is easy to reset, but the trip mechanism is so delicate that the slightest touch to the trap sets the thing off. Raccoons are curious and intelligent animals and they jiggle the cage before they enter it. This sets the trap off 90% of the time. GET THE TRAP WITHOUT THIS EASY RESET HANDLE! The "convenience" of the easy reset is absolutely. not worth it. This version of the trap is all but useless.

Easy to use, just need to catch something By Northern Gal

I baited the trap and waited. On the second night, the bait was gone but the trap was empty. More bait and waited some more. Few nights later, the trap was sprung, the bait was gone but the critter managed to escape. It's been a couple weeks now, and nothing is taking the bait.

Poor design By Steve

Poor product. Good customer service. Trap doesn't work. 2 months and caught 0 raccoons. Animals caught but they push and open cage on own. I have used other traps and caught over a 100 in 2 years. No good. They replaced this with a new different tap

Q.I bought this trap at Lowes (model 1085) and went to use it and found the locking bar doesn't lock when the trap is triggered.... the bar sits right above the grey plastic piece without going into the groove. How can this problem be fixed???

The locking bar is designed to sit right above this gray plastic piece. If the animal tries to push on the door from inside the trap, the door will open slightly until the gray piece comes in contact with the door lock, preventing it from opening all the way.

Q.We got a one door 1085 and are unable to set the trap, It does not stay opened, it shuts right away.

Sometimes, when the trap is brand new the wires need to be stretched out slightly. We recommend forcefully opening and closing the trap until the door stays in place.

Q.is this large easy-set trap already assembled or is it collapsed?

This trap comes fully assembled.
