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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use trap We are surrounded by rabbits that have been eating my wife's flowers including hosta plants. They have also been nesting in our evergreen shrubs, killing some of the branches. Well we put our traps outside and baited them with carrots. During the night the rabbits were able to enter the trap and drag the carrots out without tripping the trap. After seeing this, I took a piece of thin wire and wired a carrot to the inside of the trap approximately 3 inches up from the bottom of the cage. I thought that the rabbits would have to work on getting the carrot and in the process would trip the trap. Sure enough, a few hours later, we caught our first rabbit. So now we are using the wire everytime we set the trap. The trap is so easy to use and yes, you can do everything with one hand just as advertised. I would recommend buying this trap in the future to people who have problems with rabbits. Just remember to use the wire to attach the carrot to the inside of the trap!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Use and Effective I was very pleased with my purchase. The product arrived within a couple of days and with the guidance on how to bait the trap from the website, it was very effective. Every time I baited and set the trap a squirrel was caught in a very short time - usually minutes not hours. I did note that chipmunks are too light and they entered and left the trap at will. One drawback was that the bar holding the door closed has a little too much slack between it and the stop on the door. At least one squirrel was able to squeeze through underneath and escape. On inspection I noted that the door could open at least on inch before the stop engaged. I had to react fairly quickly to make sure a trapped squirrel did not escape. In spite of this issue I am very pleased with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily Did the Job A squirrel chewed through our window screen and came into the kitchen to get a bag of peanuts we feed to the birds and squirrels outside. We set up the small Easy-Set trap in the kitchen, baited it with 2 peanuts and left the room. Within an hour,he was in the kitchen and in the trap. He was easily released in a park a few miles away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from model#1083 Great trap caught my frist Rabbit in three days,had a hard time baiting,until I started the use of a paper clip to hang the bait over the trip plat,which made it easyer for the bait to be seen,and harder to steal.Bend the clip into a S shape place bait on one end and hang from the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set trap won't disappoint These Havahart traps are great. This one is a new design that makes it even easier to set than the older ones. No more trying to lightly wedge the curved trigger bar into the slot on the trip pallet. This one comes with a sliding handle that makes it super easy and when it has been triggered, it is locked down good. No escape. I was able to trap a squirrel the first night it was out. Hopefully he doesn't find his way back after setting him free at a neighboring lake. I couldn't be more happy with it.Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a champ! My elderly back fence neighbor has it in his mind that if he doesn't feed the squirrels they will starve. So he puts 2 pounds of nuts in a tray every day. Over the last 2 years the population has grown from 2 to 3 to 7. When it hit 7 I went to talk with him but - no dice. He didn't see 7 as a problem. I got this trap and over the last 2 weeks have been able to reduce the population to 1. I think I'll stop there and see what happens. But it works very well.The procedure: Put it in an area they frequent (it is amazing how territorial they are - the big ones mark a tree as theirs and shove the little ones down another tree). The bait: I use raw spanish peanuts because the neighbor puts peanuts out and they are used to them. I sprinkle some in the trap and out the front. Behind the trigger I put a small block of wood with a glob of peanut butter on it with more peanuts by it. The sequence: Once a squirrel picks up one of the nuts out front you can cross him off because he'll end up caught within 15-20 minutes. They can't resist going farther into the trap until they step on the trigger.The most we've caught was 2 in one day. We clean the trap between each one (soak it in dilute bleach for half hour and then rinse in water).I don't use fancy attractants and all that stuff. I don't think you need it. It's kind of a kick watching them work their way into the trap. And it is really fun letting them go. It's like catch and release fishing but you don't need a license. :^)By the way this trap is VERY safe on the release. The lever is on top with a solid plate between you and the squirrel (who by now is really steamed at being trapped). Point the opening away from you, pull the lever over and step back. The critter is outta there running away from you as fast as he can go.

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?

Asked by: cyam
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.

Best bait for squirells?

Asked by: lety
For best results with squirrels we recommend using peanut butter, nuts, sunflower seeds, popcorn, cereal grains, apples or a few drops of almond extract or anise oil on bread.
