Safe for You and the Animal

For You: A handle guard and solid metal doors protect you from contact with the animal, and the carrying handle allows you to hold the trap away from your body while an animal is inside.

For the Animal: Strong door locks keep animals safely in the cage, and smooth, rolled edges prevent anxious critters from injuring themselves during transport.

A Two-Door Trap is Effective and Versatile

Two spring-loaded doors allow animals to enter from either direction, increasing your odds of a catch. Additionally, a two-door trap can be less intimidating to the animal as it provides a clear path and unobstructed line of sight from one end of the trap to the other. Place two-door traps against walls or along animal travel paths in order to capture critters as they move from either direction. Two-door animal traps can also be set with only one door open, giving you the ability to try different methods of capture.

Havahart® Means Built to Last

Havahart® builds the strongest, most durable traps with premium materials, intended to endure harsh weather and unpredictable animal behavior. Made in the USA, this trap is constructed of industrial-strength, one-piece wire mesh, which is galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. Solid doors and steel reinforcements add to the durability of the trap, ensuring an even longer trap life.

Havahart® Large 2-Door Trap is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The trap worked beyond my expectations We purchased the trap within this past month and the first time we set it, we caught the woodchuck that has been terrorizing my plants. We released the animal in a wooded area about five miles from our house and have not seen him since. So glad about that

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and easy to operate. I borrowed a neighbors trap to catch armadillos that were reaking havoc in my flower beds. Caught two within 3 days. Trap worked so well I ordered two for myself and returned my neighbors. Would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a charm We had a large armadillo ravaging our yard. We positioned the Havahart along the path it used and caught the critter without having to use any bait. The animal has been relocated several miles from our home. Follow the Havahart instructions and be patient. The trap works just like Havahart describes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality trap at a great price with free shipping! This trap works well, I've already caught 2 raccoons. I'm really trying to get the armadillo who has been digging up my yard but I guess he saw the Havahart and decided not to come back! I'm ready if he does. I'm 100% satisfied. Customer Service is also excellent++.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What Happened to Quality Control at Havahart? My wife backed over my havahart trap. She ordered the same size and style as my old one. It was several yrs old and superbly made, I had caught many varmints in it.The new one is poorly made,the linkage is not straight and hangs up if you're not careful and trap doors are very flimsy. I have caught one opossum in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three in four days This trap worked flawlessly. I trapped three racoons in four days. They really are crazy over marshmallows, I also sprinkled some dry cat food around the spring plate. I am extremely satisfied and would highly recommend it.

Do both doors on #1045 drop simultaneously ? Is the two door trap as secure as the one door?

Asked by: Scotty
Both doors will engage and close at the same time. Our live traps both one and two door use the same design to keep the doors closed after an animal is caught.

I need a part for the #1045 trap. Where do I get the part. I can't afford a new trap. I see no place to post the picture. It's the spring loaded horse shoe shaped piece of wire with the spring mounted on the thin plate. This trap has one on each end.

Asked by: Kenneth
Replacement parts are not available for the traps due to the way they are manufactured. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.

Can you please provide me with the dimensions of the spaces between the wire squares on the sides, top and bottom. I know the smaller traps are about 1" square. Would the openings in the sides be about 11/2 " in this trap?? Please provide exact specs.

Asked by: Anonymous
The openings are 1 inch by 1 inch on all sides of the trap.

Your video shows very clearly how to set the trap, but it doesn't show how to get the animal out.  I have a similar trap and it has the ability to open the screened in side to let the animal out.  How do I safely let the animal out of your 1 or 2 door tra

Asked by: Daveh26
To release the animal the door can be opened and a stick or rod placed through the side panel to hold it in the open position. You should then walk away from the trap until the animal leaves.
