Review RateHorrible trap
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.Response From Havahart®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratefaulty door
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 fedResponse From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWorking on several options
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.
Review Ratedidn't work
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.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePoor design
Do not purchase this trap. It is poorly designed and your critters will escape. I have video evidence of a nice possum getting out of my trap. The door is able to be pushed up allowing the animal to get free. I will just spend the extra money the next time on a better trap. Putting the trap together is easy and not difficult at all. However, I am trying to re-enforce my trap with extra links to secure it and a new fabrication of the door so it is not so easy to push back up. This is a pain and not worth the money I spent on the trap.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratepiece of crap
Terrible design on the door spring. The spring collapsed on the first set and the animal escaped. Very poor quality.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

bought two to remedy a rabbit problem in my yard. The squirrels love this because the trap set is so stiff, that the squirrels can't set it off when the get the lettuce I leave for the rabbits. Taking them back to the store.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. To increase the sensitivity of the trap, we recommend adding something small to the trigger plate such as a pebble or washer. Also, tying the bait from the roof of the trap works well to ensure the rabbit has to maneuver on the trigger plate, increasing the chances of a catch.

Review RateWort trap ever!
Worst trap ever! The door catches on the metal fittings on the sides of the trap, that is when it decides to actually trigger the door to close. I had a opossum simply walk right out of this trap (the spring on the door is not strong enough to keep the animal inside).Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDon't Waster Your Money
My indoor cat darted out the door late one night. Bought this trap, set it up and tried it out several times to be sure that I had it set up correctly. I had a security camera set out to watch the trap and was excited when I saw my cat walk into the trap. However, I was angry when the trap door closed, obviously either not fast enough or not securely enough, and the cat darted back out the trap. This trap was returned to Lowes the next day. Thankfully I just trapped my cat 4 weeks later with a drop trap made from a different company when he should have been caught 3 weeks prior. Definitely go with a better made brand.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. If the cat was not fully inside the trap when the trigger was engaged, this could have permitted it to back out of the trap as the door may not have locked in place. We apologize for this experience and are happy to hear that your cat was eventually caught.

Review RateDo not buy this garbage trap.
Worst trap ever, large animals just walk right through it. Literally have to have raccoon stand on trigger and jump up and down for it to trigger. The force for the 2 doors is too tight or something. Single door, cardboard rest on handle triggers fine, but the 2 doors open ... worse trap known to mankind.Response From Havahart®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
