Trapping Has Never Been Easier

Controlling wild raccoons, armadillos and other destructive animals has never been easier than with Easy Set® traps. Patented Havahart® technology allows you to set your trap with just one hand and in one quick motion. Easy Set® also allows you to release a trapped animal safely from the back of the trap - you never have to touch the door or come near the animal. Plus, updated sturdy hardware provides additional comfort, security and durability.

 

Set and Release with One Hand

This trap can be set in just 1 simple step. Just pull back the patented Easy Set® lever to 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. Check out our videos for more information.

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. Additionally, the rigid plastic carrying handle gives you better control and provides more comfort when handling large animals.

Safe, Rolled Metal Edges that Protect the Animal

Easy Set® traps are constructed of one-piece wire mesh, galvanized for resistance to rust and corrosion. The edges are polished smooth to protect the animal from injuring itself during transport.

No-Escape Door Locks Give You Peace of Mind

Our strong spring-loaded door features an updated lock with added reinforcements, making your groundhog 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 like opossums that require more sensitivity to trip the trap, turn the sensitivity screw to the left (-). Larger animals like raccoons 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.

Great quality and design By Kathy

This trap brings my ownership of Havahart traps to a total of 6. Each one working just needed more for the > of the number of varmints on the farm. This last one is awesome easy to set. Would like to suggest that you incorporate a small lockable door above bait area for better and easier placement of bait.

Easy Open Door By SDWilli5

The easy set door is easy to set but the easy set door is also an easy open door for a large belligerent racoon or armadillo. This is in regards to the model 1085 trap. The model 1079 is a better trap and has never failed yet.

Door locking failed By Tony

I bought model 1085 trap but found out it has same problem with the door locking mechanism. The metal rod slipped off from the plastic stopper at the bottom of the door and raccoon escaped. It would hold the door better if there was a groove along the stopper to lock in the metal rod.

Not very effective By Murphy

When I first got the trap, the gate would not fall. There was no clearance between the gate and the side of the trap, and the gate would jam. I bent some of the wires on the side of the trap outward, and solved that problem. However, the trip plate is not very sensitive. It is also not stiff enough, and one side will push to the floor without tripping the trap. It is easy to set, but since it only works about half time, that's not much of an advantage.

Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Murphy,


Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We assure you, our traps should function as designed without any modifications, and we're happy to honor our one-year replacement policy for this trap. If you find that the trap is not sensitive enough for the animal you're trying to catch, we recommend placing an extra bit of weight, such as a pebble or a few rocks, on the bait plate. Please contact our Customer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242)

OK for small animals By Chopper

Works well for opossums and cats, but raccoons have totally destroyed 2 different traps and escaped. My 40 year old trap is made much stronger and I have never had a raccoon escape. It is just very difficult for the wife to set.

Q&A
Q.The gray plastic lock is broken. Would that part be available for purchase?
A.

Replacement parts are not available for this trap, however, it is covered by our 1-year replacement policy. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for assistance.

Q.I bought this trap at Lowes (model 1085) and went to use it and found the locking bar doesn't lock when the trap is triggered.... the bar sits right above the grey plastic piece without going into the groove. How can this problem be fixed???
A.

The locking bar is designed to sit right above this gray plastic piece. If the animal tries to push on the door from inside the trap, the door will open slightly until the gray piece comes in contact with the door lock, preventing it from opening all the way.

Q.We got a one door 1085 and are unable to set the trap, It does not stay opened, it shuts right away.
A.

Sometimes, when the trap is brand new the wires need to be stretched out slightly. We recommend forcefully opening and closing the trap until the door stays in place.
