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.

Does the trick and stores flat...... By PhillyTrapper
I bought two collapsible traps for relocating squirrels that had taken residence in my garage and had continued to chew off all of my wooden exterior window sills. The directions were not easy to follow so I figured out the mechanics myself. That took 15 minutes at first when it should have taken two. Since there is flexing for the collapsible model ( more than I would imagine with the one that doesn't store flat) the release door tends to get stuck when letting the trapped animal out. I use two long handled pliers and double gloves to free the angry squirrels. As I mentioned It takes some maneuvering to get it open since the trap's outer frame does not stay squared off. If you have the room for storage I would recommend getting the regular one. That having been said the ones I bought have been quite successful with 8 already trapped and more to go. Should have done this years ago. Don't wait.

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.

WOW!! 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!!!

Q.Is this trap too big for squirrels

This trap is best used for rabbits and skunks.  Our traps designed for squirrels can be found at the link below.


Q.Will this trap work for Squirrels?

This trap is specially designed for rabbits and skunks only.

Q.Do the Easy set models have the same ability to adjust trigger sensitivity as the other models?

The sensitivity of the trigger cannot be adjusted to be harder, but we do recommend adding weights to the trip plate to make it easier to trip when an animal goes over it.
