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.

The trap worked beyond my expectations By Chuckers
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

Works well. By Al V
I bought this a couple of months ago to take of a ground hog problem. Once I had the cage in the right setting, i.e. under my deck vice beside, it worked great. My friend borrowed it, and he caught himself a raccoon. The only thing wrong with it is that I lost the handle already. That design issue needs to be addressed but the rest worked great.

Tripping Mechanism By Catch Em If You Can

Tripping mechanism wants to hang up. It requires too much weight to be placed on the trip board to trigger the door closure. If anyone has encountered the same problem and has a fix, please contact us at the email address below.

Response From Havahart®
Kelly : Consumer Relations Representative


Thank you for contacting Havahart®. We apologize for this experience and would be happy to provide assistance.

Once the trap is set it should not require a lot of force to trigger it. Are you able to provide pictures of the trap showing the trigger rod in the set position and pictures of the entire trap? Does the trap appear to be bent or damaged in any way?

We look forward to hearing from you. Our Consumer Relations Team can be reached at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions.

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.

Worked like a charm By JHBTX
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.

Quality trap at a great price with free shipping! By goldcoast70
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++.

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

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.

Q.will this trap catch a groundhogs

Yes, this trap works well for groundhogs.

Q.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.

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.
