Trapping Has Never Been Easier

Trapping has never been more simple than with Havahart® Easy Set® traps. Patented technology allows you to set your trap with just one hand, and let critters go without ever touching the door. Plus, updated sturdy hardware provides additional comfort and durability to this simple rabbit trap.


Set and Release with One Hand

Set this animal trap in just 1 simple step. Just pull on the patented Easy Set® lever to lock open the door, and it's ready for a catch. Best of all, the lever also allows you to release the animal while standing away from the trap, clear of the animal's escape path.

Enlarged Hand Guard and Carrying Handle Protect You

An enlarged steel plate covers the entire width of the top of the trap, protecting your hand from contact with the animal, and the updated, rigid plastic carrying handle makes the handling experience even more comfortable for you.

Rolled Metal Edges Protect the Animal

Like other Havahart® traps, this one is constructed of one-piece wire mesh, galvanized for resistance to rust and corrosion. And edges are polished smooth to protect the animal from injuring itself during transport or as it struggles to escape.

No-Escape Door Locks Give You Peace of Mind

The tight spring-loaded door features an updated door lock with added reinforcements, making your trap more escape-proof than ever.

The Havahart Small Trap works wonders for us. By Lebodude

The small Havahart Trap has enabled me to capture and relocate 18 squirrels that were emptying the bird feeders in our backyard. This is an excellent product, is very easy to set, and it arrived very quickly. I've told many of our friends about our success. Cracked pecans and whole unsalted peanuts in the shell seem to be the bait combination that works best for us.

Perfect size trap, worked first night I had it out By bart99

Perfect trap for my needs. I had 1 squirrel that had eaten through the soffit and was romping around in my attic space. Placed the trap on top of the a/c unit outside, where I believe that they he was jumping up on to get to the pipes that led into the attic, and, 1 day later, I had him. Gave him a nice ride down the road about 10 miles and let him loose on a nice spread of land with a small lake. Only cost me 1 peanut butter cracker to get the job done. Now, I will tell you that Mr. Squirrel probably would not rate your product as a 5 star item. He seemed quite irritated when I walked up on him and he ran like the wind when I opened the cage. He didn't even bother to look back and wave bye. Oh well, I know I am happier without him around and I hope life out deep in the country is fitting his lifestyle well.

I have both the long and short trap. The short one is so easy to set and easy to release the animal.

Havahart Trap 1083 By Mousielove

Very easy to set. I had a suggestion from a family member to catch squirrels. Place peanut buttered bread behind the flap and ON the flap with some nuts leading back to the flap. I also put aluminum foil across the back end so that they can't get their paws into it to move the nuts. This has finally worked. I'm convinced that peanut buttered white bread is "crack" for squirrels. They can't resist it and I've relocated 4 out of 7 squirrels so far. I'm thrilled with this purchase. Thanks, Havahart!

A very effective trap By PelicanPete

The trap works smoothly and does its job well. My only concern, which may be the result of my worrying too much, is that when the varmint is caught, theoretically, it could push its way back out the door. Since I put the trap with its guest in my SUV to bring it to its new home, I worry about the outcome of it being loose in the car. I slide a short aluminum dowel through the wire on each side which effectively prevents the door from opening.

Q.How do you get the door set stay open

The door should stay open by pulling back firmly on the handle to the set position.

Q.What is the gauge of the galvanized steel wire used in Havahart traps?

We use two sizes on our traps. The primary size is 14 gauge, but 8 gauge is used to make the body stronger on the trap.

Q.the door lock device has a spring at one side at the top of the cage but not the other. Something was in there last night but escaped because the side without the spring load didn't let the door shut properly. Are there supposed to be spring on ea side?

Our Easy Set® Traps are designed to have one spring per door. Please contact us directly at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for help in determining what may have occurred in this case.
