Trapping Has Never Been Easier
Endorsed by top rescue leagues around the country, this all-in-one feral cat trapping kit has everything you need to trap and care for stray and feral cats. This trap is ideal for use with Trap-Neuter-Return programs, as well as catching the pesky stray in your yard.
Set and Release with One Hand
Set this humane squirrel 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.
Safe, Rolled Metal Edges Protect the Animal
Just like the Havahart® squirrel trap you've relied on for years, 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.
No-Escape Door Lock Gives You Peace of Mind
The tightly spring-loaded door features updated door locks and added reinforcements, making your squirrel trap more escape-proof than ever.
Sensitivity Screw to Target Specific Sized Animals
This sensitivity screw allows you to tailor the trip force of the trap to the target animal. For small animals that require more sensitivity to trip the trap, turn the sensitivity screw to the left (-). Larger animals need less sensitivity, so turn the screw to the right (+), generating a less sensitive trip action. The sensitivity screw gives you the opportunity to catch only the animals you want.

Review RateDisappointed with product
Just what I needed to catch my Chipmunks, but as others have found out the trigger isn’t sensitive enough. Read other reviews that shared the same problem and some were able to somehow manipulate the trigger to work. Why doesn’t it work in the first place . I’m very disappointed.!Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are sorry to hear of this experience. Our traps are designed for the average sized animal. Depending on the weight/size of the animal, additional steps may be needed to increase the chances of a catch. To increase the sensitivity of the trap, we recommend adding pebbles/washers to the trip plate or tying the bait from the roof of the trap, just beyond the trip plate.

Review RateWorked well for the rat I caught
This trap worked great for the large rat that I caught. I placed a large piece of overripe banana just past the plate, at the back of the cage- it did the trick! I really appreciated having the one-hand release. In the past it has been tricky to open up the cage without getting my hand close to the animal. This is a much better system
Review RateWorks well!
Small one door trap works well with chipmunks and red squirrels, all I need.
Review RateNot great for Chipmunks
Not great for catching chipmunks which is what I bought if for. Should be a method for adjusting tension. I would not recommend this for this reason. Try the Havaheart x-small 1 door trap. Works much better for chipmunks.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
This trap is ideal for catching smaller animals such as chipmunks, rats, squirrels and weasels. If more weight is needed to trip the trap, we recommend adding something small onto the trigger plate such as a pebble or washer. Different bait placement can also help adjust the tension.

Review RateChipmunks are light weight challenges
As with some of the reviews above, the chipmunks can get in and out without setting off the trap. The sunflower seed shells and the empty peanut shells were beside the cage. It seems to work well for capturing the squirrels. We also have 3 other traps from your company but with a more sensitive design, unfortunately they sometimes unset themselves.
Review RateWorked as represented, very well.
The trap performed as represented. I appreciated the carrying handle and the one-hand setting. A rat had gnawed through the wooden trim around a door of the house and was squatting in the resulting interior space. I baited and set the trap and placed its opening against the trim. It caught the rat quickly.
Review Ratechipmunk trapping made easy
these people that can't catch a chipmunk should try an old trick i used to catch rats, put a small mouse trap with the bait on it deep into the cage, when the mouse trap is tripper, the chip will jump around and trip the trigger.or place a mouse glue trap in the trap, trying to get out of the glue will trip the trigger
Review Rateeasy set rat review
We have a engineering problem with the Easy set Rat trap Cage...I had a young rat about 4 inches long .in the trap, he was there a while because the bait was gone. I picked the cage up, it ran aran the cage llke a nut. any way i watched him squeeze under the door and was gone looking over the door there is a small gap enough for it to squeeze throw .take a good look at the door and let me know what i can do. if the door stop was back by less then a 1/4 of an inch we could keep the rat in, I had a lot of pernature Trap triggered on the double door rat trap.I think that is because the trigger is so sensitive. all you have to do is sneeze and the doors would close. but could it be the small rats getting out? I like the Easy set trap because once you get it place ,then just pull the handle back , and let it go. where the double doors are too sensitive and you have to be verrry careful when setting it in position.. I own Three large easy set tapes & five old style traps and i am going to sell the old style ones. I trap professionally in Florida under Mr.Gopher of north florida.
Review RateVery Simple to Use
Used rat trap and a peanut for years, until we had 3 young ones in a parent less burrow. Bought model 1025, but had to adjust it by slightly bending the looped arm away from trap to reduce contact length on bait pan arm. It then took much less pressure on bait pan to trip doors. Used it in single door mode, and have caught "Larry and Moe" today. "Curly" hopefully will be caught tomorrow morning. Their forever home is much nicer than my front yard. Used peanut butter on the pan with a peanut stuck in it.
