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.

Havahart® Small 1-Door Easy Set® Trap is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Easy to use! 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. Thanks, Havahart!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Captures without harming. This trap works and that is the test.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

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.
