Review RateCritters On The Run
After purchasing three (3) of the 1082, easy set traps my experience is that the traps are not sensitive enough to catch chipmunks. Two of the traps featured an adjustment knob while the third did not. After watching chipmunks enter the trap, walk across pressure trip plate, consume several dry roasted peanuts and scamper away, it is time to procure a different Havahart model.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! The sensitivity of this trap may be increased by adding weight to the trigger pan with small stones, metal washers, or magnets.

Review RateDisappointed with product
Just what I needed to catch my Chipmunks, but as others have found out the trigger isn’t sensitive enough. Read other reviews that shared the same problem and some were able to somehow manipulate the trigger to work. Why doesn’t it work in the first place . I’m very disappointed.!Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are sorry to hear of this experience. Our traps are designed for the average sized animal. Depending on the weight/size of the animal, additional steps may be needed to increase the chances of a catch. To increase the sensitivity of the trap, we recommend adding pebbles/washers to the trip plate or tying the bait from the roof of the trap, just beyond the trip plate.

Review RateNot great for Chipmunks
Not great for catching chipmunks which is what I bought if for. Should be a method for adjusting tension. I would not recommend this for this reason. Try the Havaheart x-small 1 door trap. Works much better for chipmunks.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
This trap is ideal for catching smaller animals such as chipmunks, rats, squirrels and weasels. If more weight is needed to trip the trap, we recommend adding something small onto the trigger plate such as a pebble or washer. Different bait placement can also help adjust the tension.

Review RateEasy Set Trap too focused on \"easy set\" ...
After having used this trap for several weeks, my qualified opinion is that the Easy Set Trap design is too focused on "easy set" and not enough on function. Initially, I watched chipmunks on several different occasions walk on and across the release plate without tripping the door; other reviewers have complained about this. Havahart recommends placing a coin or two on the release plate but, that shouldn't be necessary. I mean, this is not rocket science folks. After moving the release parts around while watching closely, one issue became apparent ... The amount of tension/friction that must be initially overcome to release the door is too high. I partly solved this problem by inserting a piece of plastic straw in between the metal parts that rub together; see the photo. This improved performance significantly but chipmunks still get away without tripping the door.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience. Our product team always looks for possible product improvements and consumer suggestions are helpful. Placing the bait so the animal must have increased interaction with the trip plate can also increase the catch rate.
