Designed For You by Trapping Professionals

The Havahart® Medium Collapsible 1-Door Live Animal Trap is designed by trapping experts to be the most effective, convenient and durable trap of its kind. It is carefully constructed with a fine-tuned tripping mechanism that specially targets rabbit-sized critters, eliminating false triggers, and a spring-loaded trap door that delivers quick, secure captures.


Collapsible and Space-Saving

A live trap can take up a lot of space in your garage or shed when you aren't using it. That's why Havahart® offers a mid-size trap that folds away for storage. It's easy to collapse, and easy to put together when you're ready to set it up. No trap is more convenient.

Safe for You and the Animal

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

For the Animal: A strong door lock keeps the animal safely inside, while smooth, rolled internal trap edges prevent injuries to animals as they are being transported, or as they struggle to escape.


Havahart® Traps are Built to Last

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

By SO1

Within 24 hours I had trapped three nuisance squirrels. No lost bait, no misfires, no escapes. The trap "fires" with a loud bang and latches securely. No chance of escape through the entry door. The trap was simple to set and easy to release the trapped squirrels. A simple, but well designed and constructed live trap. As I was writing this review, I heard the trap fire outside my back door. I now have four squirrels with no escapes or lost bait. Way to go Havahart!!!

Great trap
By SO1

This trap was extremely easy to set up. It caught a squirrel within the first hour it was set. I was easily able to carry him to my car, and transport him out of town. When I opened the closed end, he jumped out and ran off. The trap appears to be well built, and was a snap to use.

Q.Where should I place the bait in my trap?

The bait should be placed in a way that requires the animal to fully enter the trap and step on the trigger plate in order to reach it. For this model, it’s best to place the bait directly beyond the trip plate, toward the back wall of the trap.  For more baiting tips, click here.

Q.What is the benefit of a 1-door trap versus a 2-door trap?

If used as directed, 1-door traps and 2-door traps are equally effective. Whether you purchase a 1 or 2-door trap is a matter of preference. Some trappers prefer to use 1-door traps because they are easier to bait; since the back end is closed, you can place the bait beyond the trigger plate ensuring that the animal walks further into the trap before reaching it. Others prefer to use 2-door traps, as an animal might be more confident in entering the cage if it can see through to the other side.
Regardless of your preference, Havahart® offers both one-door and two-door traps to satisfy all consumers.

Q.How can I test my trap to make sure that it works properly?

Start by setting your trap. Using a pen or another object (not your finger), carefully touch the trip plate from either end, applying just a bit of pressure. The door should quickly snap closed.
