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.

Can’t lesion tension By Claudia

I bought the large and small trap same day. Large trap was missing a part so they sent a replacement trap. One has a knob to turn to adjust the tension the other does not. The smaller strap has no knob to lessen the tension either. Kittens have been eating but not being trapped. I can’t catch the kittens and I want to do so to be able to fix them and adopt them out. Disappointed. How do u add pebbles the the plate!

Hello Claudia,

Your feedback is appreciated, thank you for taking the time to provide it. Weight can be added to the trigger pan with pebble taped to the trigger pan, or metal washers, magnets are also effective. These traps are covered by a 30-day guarantee and a 1-year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions. We are happy to help!

Critters On The Run By Outsmarted

After purchasing three (3) of the 1082, easy set traps my experience is that the traps are not sensitive enough to catch chipmunks. Two of the traps featured an adjustment knob while the third did not. After watching chipmunks enter the trap, walk across pressure trip plate, consume several dry roasted peanuts and scamper away, it is time to procure a different Havahart model.

Durable, strong, and safe. By Fishmann

This is one awesome trap! I not only caught squirrels but I've caught possum also. Easy to set easy to bait. And when I have captured a little critter it's easy to Let It Go. I also like the feature where the animal cannot scratch you through the top because it is plated with a piece of tin.

Durable, strong, and safe. By Fishmann

This have a heart 17-inch trap is so easy to set pull the lever back hold it while you bait the Trap then set it down and walk away. I check my traps every 6 hours, the first hour I caught me a possum. So far I have caught three and taking them deep into the woods and let then go. It's really easy. But be careful, thanks to the shield on top of the cage there is no fear of scratching or biting. Good job have a heart.

Disappointed with product By Patty L

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

Hello Patty,

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.

We hope this information was helpful! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions or for additional assistance.

Worked well for the rat I caught By TJ the rat catcher

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

Not great for Chipmunks By Phill

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.

Our products are backed by a 30 day return policy with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions or for additional assistance.

Q&A
Q.I just purchased one of these traps. Unfortunately, the set handle does not lock into position; it just springs back up and the trap stays open. How do I adjust the trap so the handle stays down and locks the door open? If I can't adjust it, I will have to return it.
A.

We recommend pulling the handle back and vigorously locking it into place several times until the trap remains in the set position. This is sometimes necessary when the trap is brand new.

Q.Hi, Purchased the Model #1082 to catch a pesky chipmunk.  I've tried peanut butter and bird seed and each morning it's all gone and the trap door never activated?  What am I doing wrong? Thanks
A.

To increase the sensitivity, we recommend adding something small onto the trigger plate such as a washer or a pebble. Tying the bait from the roof of the trap above the trigger plate or burying the bait under the trap also works well also to increasing the chances of a catch.

Q.Can I use 1083 for a chipmunk?
A.

We would recommend the Havahart® 17 inch Small 1-door Easy Set® Trap, model # 1082 for chipmunks.
