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.

Havahart® 17 Inch Small 1-Door Easy Set® Trap is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Requires extra wt I like this live trap. The cat brought in two live chipmunks. The chipmunks took refuge under the kitchen cabinet =((. The trigger platform required more weight i.e. making two rows of quarters ($2.00) to capture the chipmunks. The chipmunk ate one peanut without triggering the trap. Munching on a second peanut caused the trigger plate to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great Worked great only took two days to catch the garage rat I had been after for several weeks. He took the good in my first trap and didn't trigger the door. He then went after the second trap and that was it caught finally. Anazing how much damage rats can do to walls water lines washing machines etc

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect... This trap was easy to set and catch squrrels, and simple to release them alive and well. Using peanuts in the shell, have caught 7 squrrels and one skunk in less than 2 weeks.

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

Asked by: cliffer
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.

Can I use 1083 for a chipmunk?

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

can you make this a little more sensitive? model#1082

Asked by: ricky m
There is not a way to increase the sensitivity of the trap. Tying the bait from the roof of the trap above the trigger plate or burying the bait under the trap works well to ensure that the animal is fully inside the trap and has to maneuver on the trigger plate, increasing the chances of a catch.
