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.

Bought 3 small traps about 2 weeks ago. Since then I have caught and released: 14 squirrels 1 rabbit 1 rat I am really happy with the traps and the instructional video you provided helped alot! Thank you!Date published: 2016-07-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Mousielove from Havahart Trap 1083 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.

This trap works and that is the test.Date published: 2016-04-19Rated 4 out of 5 by PelicanPete from A very effective trap 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.Date published: 2016-03-28Rated 5 out of 5 by kevin the red from Large Style Single Door Trap Have been using larger style of this trap to catch many squirrels, very very effective. I use tortillas and peanut butter and over a fall,spring fall seasons have caught 41. You need to check the traps often and get the trap away to keep from spooking the other squirrels. I do catch and release away from the troubled areas. 80 more to go,at least that many!!! P.S.... a Trapper will charge you 960.00 for 8 squirrels.Date published: 2016-02-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Bird Feed Defender from This Trap works Great! Goodbye pesky squirrels. After watching your videos, I put this trap out hoping to catch one of the many squirrels that eat the food from my bird feeder. I caught two in one day! Relocated them to a forest reserve 5 miles away.Date published: 2016-01-19

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.Date published: 2016-11-10
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.Date published: 2015-07-27
