worked flawlessly again re baited the trap last night because the cat food bowl was overturned again, sure enough a second huge racoon.The only slight flaw was that it was able to pull in the chicken antibiotics through the holes in the side of the trap.
Review Rateworked first time, best release mechanism
I picked one up at princess auto in Ottawa where it was 30 bucks cheaper than out here in the country.I had a chicken who was being treated with antibiotics in a small shelter in the barn she was eviscerated and killed the night before.My old standby trap I have been using for the last 20 30 years is in the yard buried in snow and ice so I figured it would be easier to just get a new one.The older trap is a little awkward to use but it has trapped more than 100 raccoons, cats.skunks.It is a little hard to release the suspects when you have to prop the door open to get them out which is a little scarier when they are skunks.The new trap has the release handle which is a fantastic improvement makes removing inanimate raccoons so much easier.It actually worked the first night I got it the biggest raccoon i have ever trapped was in there growling at me.The holes in the mesh are sized perfectly for a .22 rifle barrel.My pet chickens thank you .

Review Ratetotally not satisfied
twice raccoons have excaped thru the 'back' of the trap. the back panel of the trap was twisted in one case and lifted in another. i am going back to the old, 'fixed' model that is ready to go out of the box - not the folded model that must be put together. i can send photos of torqued trap.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratemore innovation and testing needed
I bought a model 1085 to trap a raccoon about tree years ago. The trap set in my attic until last week, when an armadillo needed to be trapped. Everything looked good until the next morning. The trap appeared to have been attacked by Godzilla. The trap door was severely bent and the door arm was bent almost in two. After spend- ing 2 hours repairing the trap, I noticed that the door had not seated itself properly. I also mounted 2 narrow steel bars on the trap door to seat the door more quickly and securely. Now the trap can function properly.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreat trap
Works great. Caught 3 raccoons the first week. Safe and easy to release animals. They do stink though so if you don't have a truck box you will have to have your windows open to transport them.
Review RateDid the job. Very pleased.
After getting a quote from a company to trap an opossum that was living under our home I decided to trap it myself. Ordered this trap and it came within a few days. Propped open the trap without bait for two nights. Another night with a small amount of dry cat food. Last night set it with bait and in the morning I had the possum. Trap worked great. Relocated the critter. Saved me a bunch of money. The Havaheart trap worked great. No malfunctions.

Used this trap for Armadillo....Worked great.and was a help in the quick release. i don't have time to play with the doors and keep my fingers away from the opening.i'll be getting more for my trapping Biz. and the other are going in a garage sale.
Review RateDoes not trap kittens
Rented from this trap in an attempt to catch kittens in the backyard. Saw the kitten evaluating the can of tuna but she did not go in. Returned five minutes later and the can was moved and the tuna partially eaten but the trap did not activate. I swear I thought I could see that kitten snickering as she ran off! Tested trap with a stick and it appeared to work. I contacted Havahart to learn if there is a weight rating on this trap to which they claim there is none. I would rate this trap NOT FOR KITTENS....Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. This large size trap is intended for trapping armadillos, cats, groundhogs, muskrats, nutria, opossums, raccoons, skunks, and other similarly sized animals.
Young cats and kittens may not trip the trap if they are not the same weight as the other types of animals listed. To trap a smaller cat or kitten, a small to medium sized trap is recommended for best results.

First time used the trap was sprung, I'm assuming by an armadillo! Door locking Mechanism/spring to hold door closed was bent outward, door was bent and animal escaped. Not at all happy since this was the same experience I've had with less expensive traps. For the price paid I would expect a sturdier manufactured product, apparently it's not. The only nice feature is how easily it is set. DISAPPOINTED! Today is Sunday so customer service is closed, Monday I will attempt contact to voice my dissatisfaction!Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
