Designed for You by Trapping Professionals

The Havahart® Medium 2-Door Live Animal Trap is designed by trapping experts to be the most effective, reliable, and durable trap of its kind. It's fine-tuned to specially target medium-weight critters and eliminate false triggers.  Its spring-loaded doors are effective and prevent escape. What's more, the trap is extra-long, providing enough space for lengthy critters such as possums to fully enter the trap before tripping it closed.


Simple to Operate

You don't have to be a pro to use this extra-long Havahart® trap. Its design allows trappers of all experience levels to capture, transport, and release animals like skunks and opossums.  Check out our How To Set video to see how simple the trap is to operate.

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 Fast and Versatile

A two-door trap creates a clear path from one end of the trap to the other. 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. In order to access the bait and get to the other end, the animal must step on the trigger plate, resulting in a catch.  Two-door traps can also be set with only one door, giving you the ability to try different methods of capture.


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. 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.

Best for trapping skunks!
By Christa

Nice and low, keeps them from spraying. I moved two pesky skunks with this trap, and also some annoying squirrels. This is an excellent multi-use trap.

Baiting Rabbits
By Ed

Our nuisance pests are rabbits which have stripped ALL of my wife's flowers, including the marigolds! I selected the Havahart 1040 for its less intimidating, pass-through 2-door configuration, greater length, and the greater adjustability of its manual setting mechanism. After many days of an empty trap tucked in the shrubbery, full of un-touched apple scraps, I looked more widely online for other suggestions. I read elsewhere that it is futile to try to bait rabbits and best to hide a 2-door trap in a run. Interesting, and maybe useful somewhere else, but there are no runs here. Instead, I baited with "baby" carrots, halved lengthwise so they wouldn't roll off the trigger plate, plus a couple enticingly strewn in each approach. The trap was placed in the open on the patio where I had watched a rabbit hop about early other mornings, a cedar shingle under one corner to prevent it from rocking. Twice the carrots were all gone and the trap unsprung, after leaving it barely half "set" the second time. This morning I watched a rabbit sniff contentedly all the way through the trap, never touching the trigger plate. I grabbed two more baby carrots and placed them UNDER the trigger plate. That did the trick! He returned and barely started to nuzzle for a carrot when it tripped. He has been relocated, and the trap reset the same way in case there are more. Baiting rabbits works just fine, as does the 1040 trap, thank you very much!

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

The bait should be placed in a way that requires the animal to 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 on the trip plate before you set it. If you can, create a trail of bait from one end of the trap to the other to lead the animal through.
