Set and Release with One Hand
Set this humane trap in 1 simple step: pull on the Easy Set® lever to open the doors, and the trap's ready for a catch. Or, set it as a 1-door trap by releasing the cable from the offset loop, and pulling the lever to the open position. Use the lever again to release the animal while standing away from the trap opening - clear of the exit path.
Enlarged Hand Guard and Carrying Handle Protect You
An enlarged steel plate covers the entire width of the top of the trap, protecting your hand from contact with the animal, and the updated, rigid plastic carrying handle makes the handling experience even more comfortable for you.
Safe, Rolled Metal Edges Protect the Animal
Just like the Havahart® squirrel trap you've relied on for years, this one is constructed of one-piece wire mesh, galvanized for resistance to rust and corrosion. And edges are polished smooth to protect the animal from injuring itself during transport or as it struggles to escape.
No-Escape Door Locks Give You Peace of Mind
Two tightly spring-loaded doors feature updated door locks and added reinforcements, making your squirrel trap more escape-proof than ever.
A Two-Door Trap is Quick and Versatile
A two-door trap allows you to create a clear path from one end of the trap to the other by setting it with both ends open. Place this two-door trap against a wall or along an animal's path in order to capture it as it travels from either direction. With two doors open, a skunk or rabbit must step on the trigger plate to reach the bait and make it through to the other side, resulting in a catch.

Review RateI'll stick to the one door traps for now even though I have not caught any animals with those traps.Having two entries is nice but the animal has to go over to the other side of the trap to set it off, hence it is my opinion that a one-door trap works the best. I impeded entry into one side and the squirrels did enter the only open entry-way. I've caught about 4 squirrels so far...
I've also seen a squirrel step on the trap and it did not close. I've also seen the trap doors closed but no animal. The two squirrels still in my area seem leary of my traps that have caught their relatives.
Review RateOver engineered, and non-functional
The doors fit so tightly they won't close reliably, and the cables do not slide freely to allow the trap to close quickly and completely. Several squirrels have taken the bait and escaped. I wish I had bought a different trap, and if I had not already discarded the box, I would return it.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratejust does not work
I recently purchased this trap. Having used the older Havahart trap for many years and needing another I ordered this newer trap. To date I have not trapped a single squirrel in this one. The older trap during this same period has trapped 14 squirrels. The bait is gone but not tripped. I have 2 trees that the squirrels regularly go to ground in my yard. I located the old trap at one tree and the new one at the other. Thinking that something was just stealing the bait I swapped trees with the 2 traps. Same thing, bait gone, no trip. Finally, I added lot more bait to the new trap and I did get a trip but no squirrel. One of the problems in the easy set trap is no place to put the bait except on the ground. I tried placing the bait behind the trip trigger & closing one door and forcing the squirrel to step over the trip device but still it did not trip. But yet the bait was gone. I think the old trap is the best trap that I have ever used. I put the bait on the trip trigger. I use nuts for bait. This easy set trap needs a way to place the bait on the trip device so any attempt to take the bait will trip. Also, I believe the one time I did get it to trip, the squirrel just pushed the door open. It does not have a positive method to prevent door from opening. Just a little pressure on the inside of the door allows the locking device to slip over the plastic catch. The older trap has a J shaped locking tab. I can see no way to adjust the trip pressure. I saw a picture showing a knob to adjust the trip pressure but it is not on the one I received. I have quit using this failure of a trap. Wish I had ordered the old version if it is even still available.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePretty good trap
Overall, probably the best trap brand on the market. Very easy to set up. One door vs. two door flexibility. Only two observations - one door rubs slightly on side of trap, so factory alignment could/should be better; bait pedal sensitivity is fine for adult rabbits, etc, but a bit too heavy for bunnies and red squirrels, thus some “creativity” is necessary when setting the bait for lighter animals.
Review Ratelooks good, but has some flaws
One door quit working right away. I had to wire it shut, as squirrels got out when I was transfering them to the carry away cage. The other door is difficult to get to latch. Sometimes it releases when there is nothing in the cage. Sometimes the squirrel goes in and eats the peanut butter, and then leaves. I have caught several squirrels, however, and take them miles away, across the river. Havahart has said they are sending a cage to replace this one. That is professionalism, but have not gotten the cage yet Hope it comes today.Response From Havahart®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWorked at first. Now nothing. May need to try different and fresh baits.
Relocated an opossum in the first week with the 2-door medium Easy Set trap. The animal left the trap very greasy with whatever oils are produced by their skin. Took a while to clean that off and get it ready for use again. Now I think they may have lost interest in the bait. I guess this is going to take continued work to make sure the trap has fresh bait.
Review RateVery easy to use.
I had great success catching squirrels with this trap but it doesn't hold up well in wet weather so I had to replace the first one I purchased. I use bottle caps filled with peanut butter wired to the roof to catch squirrels.
works as described.

This does not work. Animals eat the bait and walk away.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate you taking the time to provide this feedback! These comments have been shared with our Product Managers. If animals are taking the bait without setting off the trap, we recommend trying the trap as a single-door trap and placing the bait near the closed end. Also, adding weight to the trigger pan will increase the sensitivity. These traps are covered by a 30-day guarantee and a 1-year replacement policy with a copy of the purchase receipt.
