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.

Review RateSprings not strong enough
The springs are not strong enough for a squirrel to trip the pressure plateResponse From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. This trap is recommended for rabbits, skunks, squirrels, and weasels. To increase the sensitivity, we recommend adding something small onto the trigger plate such as a washer or a pebble.

Review RateWhy did Havahart design a trap that can't be adjusted for weight and is set for a fairly heavy small animal?
Why did Havahart design a trap that can't be adjusted for weight and seems set for a fairly heavy small animal? The Red Squirrels in my attic walk freely in and out and take the bait without tripping the door. Adding weight to the trip plate is much easier said than done. Has Havahart tried adding pebbles and washers? Adding these is very awkward, they tend to roll and slide off the plate. And it is very hard to set the trap with weights on it.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.
When adding weight to the trigger pan, we recommend taping it on. A small magnet can also be used. For squirrels, which can very deftly steal bait, we recommend placing the bait under the trigger pan or in a manner that will increase the animal's interaction with that pan.

Review RateIt simply does not work!
This trap is a joke! I've seen on my Nest Cam Outdoor in at least 5 instances as the rabbit came in, ate the apple and just got out without the trap going off. Ridiculous!....I wish to return it!Response From Havahart®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
If rabbits are taking the bait without triggering the door, we recommend adding some weight to the trigger plate. This can often be done with some small washers or pebbles.
Please keep in mind that the trap is covered by a 30 day return policy. Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.
Review RateThe Havahart Small Trap works wonders for us.
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.
Review RatePerfect size trap, worked first night I had it out
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.
Set this trap under my chicken coop. Animals enter and the door closes very nicely, only the trapped animal simply noses under the door and it raises for an easy escape.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more. This trap is recommended for use with rabbits, skunks, squirrels, and weasels, and the door should stay firmly closed. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance. Our traps are covered by a one year replacement warranty.
Review RateEasy to set.
I have both the long and short trap. The short one is so easy to set and easy to release the animal.
Review Rateperfect trapI received this trap on Thursday, Aug. 11, 2016. The next day, I caught one squirrel I took the bugger to a big park and released it there. This trap is very easy to use. I recommend it.
Review RateIt really works!I was suffering from destructive squirrels that did terrible damage by chewing the electrical wiring to the solar panels on our roof. A friend recommended the Havahart trap. Within the space of less than two weeks I caught three of the critters. The Easy Set trap lives up to its name in that it is really easy to set and is 100% effective in trapping squirrels! I would definitely recommend it.
