Horrible trap By TammyL

Please do not buy this. I went to Lowe's yesterday and bought one and paid $65 and change. First of all, it is very confusing to assemble (not easy). I finally got it together and set it out last night to trap a Raccoon. The Raccoon did get in and eat the cat food but pushed its way back out. This trap is worthless. I had to return it for a refund.

faulty door By william

Bought the 1084 from Lowes and returned it, because the rabbit ate the food, but the door did not close. I am not sure if there suppose to be 1 0r 2 springs on the door. The one I received only had one spring. The door would bind on one side thus preventing it from closing. I have seen the rabbit numbers time since and she looks well fed

Working on several options By Marcus

I have a couple of small rabbits that I need to relocate. Set the trap in there favorite location and put a couple of corrots available for the. Did not set the trap but kept the door open with a stick. Took two days before the food dissappeared. Did the same thing again and the food was gone in 12 hours. St Set the trap and put the carrots about an inch from the back. The trap was open and food gone so I am assuming the plate is not sensitive enough. Read some of the suggestions in the reviews so I will try placing a washer or 2 on the plate, string the carrots, tie the string to the roof of the trap let them dangle an inch or two below the roof. Make it difficult for the rabbit to get the food so it will move around as much as possible. I will trap them and have several more options. Some of the reviewers give up to easily. Be Patient.

Excellent By No Kidding

I bought this Havahart medium one door trap from DYI in California. I had a few ground squirrels visiting the property and raiding the bird feeders. that was March 2017. it is now July 2018. I have now caught 111 ground squirrelsand 14 rats in that same trap using nothing but Wagners Western Mix Bird Seed; I kid you not. All of those squirrels have been relocated and released. I read a few reviews and I do not know what theses dissatisfied people are talking about. The trap I bought came fully assembled and has never failed to work properly. I would advise anyone to set the trip hook at the bare minimum to hold the door open. That way it is a quick trip with even light pressure on the trip plate. The door or the cage has never failed to hold the animals. Those are the facts. FYI, this is the first review I have ever written for a product, but this one deserves honorable mention for its performance.

didn't work By fred

Didn't work. Possum went in, ate the food, door didn't shut. I bought this product after I had bought a 745. The animal was trapped but broke out. Still looking for a trap that works.

Trap works well but needs a more robust trigger platform By mikeyman

The trap arrived in perfect shape and on time. I bought the trap for a raccoon. Due to the presence of several neighborhood cats, I had to experiment a little with baits. I caught several cats and released them unharmed but thoroughly miffed at the experience. Switched to marshmallows and quickly caught the raccoon. He was in the trap for overnight and succeeded in digging a trench about 4 inches wide and 3 inches deep on both sides of the trap. I successfully transported and released him (legal in Louisiana). The trigger platform was bent and deformed by the raccoon and I had to reshape it before it could be reset.

Q.I have a Model 1079. The door lock, #1 on your directions is missing. My fault not yours. How can I safely release a squirrel without it?

We recommend first checking with your Humane Society, or the local or state game commission to determine the lawful method of releasing a captured wild or nuisance animal. Lift the door up, insert a stick through both sides of the trap to prop the door open, and walk away. For more information, call 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) and visit this link

Q.Can you adjust the sensitivity? We are trapping kittens that I don't think weigh enough to trip the trigger.

The sensitivity of this trap may be increased by adding weight to the trigger pan. This may be done with items like small stones, metal washers, or magnets.

Q.I have a large one door trap and need a replacement part for the setting hook that attaches to the trap door. I also attaches to the long rod that is attached to the trigger plate. Can I purchase?

Replacement parts are not available for sale. However, the trap is covered by a one-year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.
