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.

Chipmunk catcher By Happy Geoff
Our new unwanted tenant, ' Mr. Chipmunk ' moved in for a stay just before we had to leave for a weekend and stayed. Finding your info took a few days to receive. The first night he didn't take advantage of his new quarters, but on the second night he settled in and the next morning was set loose & really ran.

Requires extra wt By jlljax
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.

Easy Set Trap too focused on \"easy set\" ... By JohnDeere55

After having used this trap for several weeks, my qualified opinion is that the Easy Set Trap design is too focused on "easy set" and not enough on function. Initially, I watched chipmunks on several different occasions walk on and across the release plate without tripping the door; other reviewers have complained about this. Havahart recommends placing a coin or two on the release plate but, that shouldn't be necessary. I mean, this is not rocket science folks. After moving the release parts around while watching closely, one issue became apparent ... The amount of tension/friction that must be initially overcome to release the door is too high. I partly solved this problem by inserting a piece of plastic straw in between the metal parts that rub together; see the photo. This improved performance significantly but chipmunks still get away without tripping the door.

We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience. Our product team always looks for possible product improvements and consumer suggestions are helpful. Placing the bait so the animal must have increased interaction with the trip plate can also increase the catch rate.

Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for any additional assistant needed.

Not worth it. By JimFarmer

I bought two of these to catch chipmunks. I must have smart chipmunks because the bait is always gone, and either the trap did not trigger, or somehow it is closed with nothing in the trap.

Hello Jim,

Thank you for providing this feedback. We apologize for this experience. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for troubleshooting assistance.

The trap should trigger easily by poking the trip plate with a pencil or stick. Mice or other smaller animals could get to the bait & leave. We look forward to helping get those chipmunks caught.

can not catch a chipmunk because the chipmunk is n By doodlehead2

what ever i do the chipmunk will not snap the trap. watched them go in and eat the bait and leave as if to say thanks for the food.

Response From Havahart®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

If an animal is able to access the bait in a trap without engaging the trip plate, it will not trigger. To prevent this type of bait theft, we recommend tying the bait to the trap or digging a small hole under the trap and placing the bait inside. This will cause the animal to go further into the trap and work harder to access the bait, increasing the chances of a successful catch.

We appreciate this feedback and hope this information is helpful.Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any additional questions.

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

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?

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

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

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.
