Trapping Has Never Been Easier

Trapping has never been easier than with Havahart® Easy Set® traps. Patented technology allows you to set your two trap doors open with just one hand, and let critters go without ever having to put your hand near either trap opening. Plus, updated sturdy hardware provides additional comfort and durability.

Set and Release with One Hand

Set this humane trap in 1 simple step: pull on the Easy Set® lever to open the doors, and the trap's ready for a catch. Or, set it as a 1-door trap by releasing the cable from the offset loop, and pulling the lever to the open position. Use the lever again to release the animal while standing away from the trap opening - clear of the exit 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 Locks Give You Peace of Mind

Two tightly spring-loaded doors feature updated door locks and added reinforcements, making your squirrel trap more escape-proof than ever.

A Two-Door Trap is Quick and Versatile

A two-door squirrel trap allows you to create a clear path from one end of the trap to the other by setting it with both ends open. Place this two-door trap against a wall or along an animal's path in order to capture it as it travels from either direction. In order to access the bait and get to the other end, a squirrel or other rodent must step on the trigger plate, resulting in a catch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent item ! This is great for catching chipmunks to relocate them , very easy to use ,helpful hint I clipped a paper cup to the trap lever and put the bait in the cup some lighter weight chipmunks are too light to set the trap off , also I found more success keeping one door closed other wise they grab the food and run out the other door ,by making them turn around to get out give the trap another chance to trigger as what happens when there diggin in the cup for the food there movement can help trigger the trap

Rated 4 out of 5 by from trap safety like the trap but there are some ways to improve it . The open part of the trap will cut your hands if you are not careful you need to fold some smooth sheet metal over the cage part of the opening to protect the hands.. Also if you use both doors and the animal come in the wrong direction it will not set off the trap I have a chipmunk problem and many time they take the bait and dont set off the trap

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked the 1st day Set the trap using just one door as it seemed to be easier to trigger. Had 2 chipmunks in the trap before lunch the next day. Getting ready to set the trap out again in case there are more hiding under the deck. Worked great and just the right size for the chipmunks or maybe a squirrel that eats the bird seed.   RESPONSE FROM HAVAHART AUGUST 22, 2012 Dear Jimmie,   Thank you for your online review of the Havahart® Small 2-Door Easy Set® Trap. We are happy to hear that you were able to successfully capture not one, but two chipmunks on your first day using this trap!   This trap can be set using one or two doors without affecting the efficiency of the trap. Some animals may be easier to catch using a single door and placing the bait as far back as you can so they will have to cross the trip plate and engage the trap in order to retrieve the bait. We hope you have many more successful catches with this trap in the future.   If you have questions or need additional assistance, please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Havahart 1061 trap This trap is excellent for rats which is the reason I bought it. I use a piece of uncooked porkchop for bait. Guess the smell of rotting meat was too much of a temptation!!!!

What is a good bait for chipmunks

Asked by: harris
When trapping chipmunks, we recommend baits such as peanut butter, un-roasted peanuts, sunflower seeds, corn, raisins, prune pits, cereal grains or pumpkin seeds.

i have the 2-door trap for chipmunks. I have baited it at least 10 times and every single time, the bait is gone after 1-2 days, but no rodent. I've used nuts, peanut butter, fruit, etc.

Asked by: fightingterp
We would recommend setting the trap as a one door trap and placing the bait against the closed door. Also hanging the bait from the top of the trap will allow the chipmunk to struggle and have a greater chance of tripping the trap.
