I bought 3 of these traps. This trap works ok for a little while. It's not durable. The plastic channel that the door slides in cracks and the rivets fastening the plastic channel to the cage doesn't hold firm to the cage which allows about a 1/4"-3/8" movement of the door. Rats have escaped. Squirrels hasn't escaped. Manufacturing quality control issue. I had fix the trip plate. The holes stamped out in the trip plate don't match up with the rods and it's not free to move easily. Bending the rods will correct this issue. Other traps like the Havahart Large 1-Door Animal Trap, Model #: 1079-B is a very good durable trap. I love this one!Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDoor latch problem
I've used this trap for two years quite successfully, but at some point the spring still door latch broke off, enabling the door to open if another animal (dogs in our neighborhood) came along before I could get to the trap. I would love to replace the latch or complete door and called Havahart but apparently they do not provide any parts for this trap...so will have to buy a whole new one to fix the problem. Doesn't make any sense that they would not provide parts!!! Disappointed in that regard.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! At this time, replacement parts are not available due to the way the traps are manufactured. However, we appreciate the suggestion and have shared the information with our Product Managers.

Review Ratepoor product
Door won't stay up. Used to have a two door trap that worked great. This one falls down on its own, if you can even get it to stay up at all.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We now have a new roommate that has had a good run of things. It was not our initial intention but with the door not shutting on the trap the guy has made himself at home. The good news is that with all of the peanut butter and cheese that this guy is eating he will probably one day be standing in the trap and stroke out and hit his head on the trigger finally causing the door toResponse From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this and would like the opportunity to learn more. The door to the trap should come the whole way down when it is triggered. Our traps are covered by a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a one-year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.
Review RateToo small for our chipmunks!Ordered this trap first for chipmunk. Once received it said mice on the box. Tried it anyway. Trap was detonated several times with bait gone and no critter. Ordered the size small trap and caught two within one week of putting it out. No way our munk could have fit in the Xsmall. But correct size worked great! Great productResponse From Havahart®Susan : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe appreciate this feedback and are glad to hear how well the small trap has been working.
We apologize that the chipmunks did not trigger the extra small trap. Was this a one or a two door trap? If the trap was two doors, we recommend setting it as a one door trap and placing the bait at the far side of the trap, near the closed door. This helps ensure that the chipmunk will be fully inside the trap before it is triggered.

Review RateDoesn\'t workI've baited the trap eight (8) times now, and each time the cheese was gone, but the mechanism did not trip. The platform is very stiff, and I've tried everything to loosen the mechanism so that it trips, but no luck. This is supposed to be a trap for rats, not for hippos!
