Designed and Trusted by Trapping Professionals for the Heaviest Jobs
The Havahart® X-Large 1-Door Live Animal Trap is the largest and most rugged live trap, designed and trusted by professionals for the humane capture of big raccoons and fox-sized critters. The heavy-duty cage is carefully constructed to stand up to the strongest animals, and the trip plate's sensitivity is fine-tuned to the weight of a large beaver, groundhog or small dog, so smaller critters cannot falsely trigger the door closed.
Simple to Operate
You don't have to be a professional to use this Havahart® extra-large trap. Its design allows trappers of all experience levels to capture, transport, and release large, heavy animals with ease. Check out our How To Set video to learn how to operate a Havahart trap.
Safe for You and the Animal
For You: Double steel carrying handles allow you to safely hold the trap away from your body while an animal is inside, and a large, solid handle guard protects you from animal contact.
For the Animal: An extra-strength door lock keeps the animal safely inside, while smooth, rolled trap edges prevent animal injuries as they are being transported.
Superior Strength and Durability
This Havahart® extra-large 1-door trap is the most robust, heavy-duty trap on the market. Made in the USA with one-piece, 12-gauge steel wire mesh, it's fit for the heaviest and most erratic wild animals, making for the best raccoon trap. A galvanized finish protects it from rust and corrosion, and steel reinforcements give the trap even more strength and a longer trap life.

Review RateGreat sturdy cage
This is a very well made large trap. We had a very big and smart Raccoon that broke 2 other cages. We caught him and then he broke the cages to get out before we got to him. Had it on camera. He did not get out of this x-large strong cage! I highly recommend this one!
Exactly as described Excellent
Review RateHelpful HintPurchased this trap years ago but never used it. Yesterday a possum decided to take up residence in my garage. I got the trap out but it wouldn't set/trip. I called customer service and was told to use cooking spray to lubricate the trigger plate. That may have helped some but the trap still wouldn't trip. I then remembered that there was a "hint" that said to bend the trigger forward or backwards. I bent it backwards ever so slightly, reset the trap and the trigger plate worked like a charm.
I'm going to use it tonight...catch and release many miles away at a conservation area.
Review RateRaccoon broke new trap
First time we used this new trap to trap a raccoon, the raccoon BROKE the door and escaped. Now the raccoon is back living on our house roof. I would NOT recommend this trap to anyone. Once a raccoon gets trap-shy, it will not approach traps in the future. It seems that these traps are not constructed very well; they are fussy to set and apparently prone to being broken by an animal pretty readily.Response From Havahart®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

I am a little bit disappointed because the trap needs a lot a adjustment to be able to work properly. Mostly with the door security latch. I did caught some animals, but I also missed a lot because of that door lock. The animals were able to enter the trap, eat the food and get out and have the door closed. These are mostly Racoons. My neighbor has the same problem with his 2 traps. They need some precision adjustment. This is a must in order to perform properly.Response From Havahart®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePoor trigger mechanism
The trigger mechanism on this trap is very poorly designed. Most of the time, there is so much play in the trigger arm that even pushing the trigger plate all the way to the ground doesn't spring the trap. Very disappointed in this trap as it seems like an obvious design flaw.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Your feedback is appreciated, thank you for taking the time to provide it! We have shared your comments with our Product Managers. This trap should trigger with minimal pressure applied to the trigger plate, if this is not that case, please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for assistance as this trap is covered by a 30-day guarantee and a 1-year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt.
