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 RatePOOR J-CLIP QUALITY
After reading the reviews it looks like a COMMON PROBLEM!!! Door on x-large trap got blown-off by a raccoon. Told it can't be repaired because of the tolerances and fit of the door. Repaired it MYSELF with cable clamps! Captured (3) raccoons in 3 days since. X-Large Traps NEED REDESIGNED WITH ADDITIONAL/STRONGER CLIPS TO HOLD THE TRAP TOGETHER !!!!!Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot strong enough
Caught a coon, he tore the door tight off. I emailed trying to see if I could get more of those clips that hold the door on. No answer. Then after three days I called. They don't want to sell the clips, but said they would be happy to sell me a whole new trap.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateTraps door does not stand up to Armadillos.
I purchased this trap to catch mature Armadillo's. I have had two experiences where the animal has been caught, however the door does not close as it should. At some point during the night the critter bangs around in the trap until he gets out!!! Smaller hav-a-hart traps do not have strong doors and Armadillo's just destroy the trap. This trap is strong enough, but it does not close properly. If I could return it I would. Probably need a commercial grade trap. I have one of your traps from 40 years ago and It Is A Sure Thing. The new trap is not.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this experience. When trapping an animal, it is important to release it as soon as possible as it may be come easily spooked and attempt to escape. Armadillos are notorious for slamming their bodies into the sides of a trap in order to get out.

Review RateGreat products, used them All!
66 yrs old, been trapping since age 6, built my traps w/ scrap wood n wire until could afford to purchase. Used this brand for years, buying new one today, sure beats building. Noted many comments on trap adjustment/performance, etc.; as with "any" trap they require continued adjustment/maintenance, especially after trapping large animals. A large angry boar (male) raccoon can destroy almost anything, and I've had them snap (break) hoe handles with their teeth, hence why I wear heavy welder' gloves. Sometimes you must repair-reinforce w/ wire compression or "hog rings", etc. or cable/clamps, etc, from local hardware store. Just sayin!
Review RateGreat Product
trap is great and the delivery time is unbelievable fast !!!!!!! Great product
Review RateGreat trapI bought two a few weeks ago and I like them a lot. Sturdy and trip good. A tad heavy but arnt all large cages heavy.
Review Ratehand protection double door
I bought this trap about 4 weeks ago and I just love it. It is big enough to catch almost everything you want. I've caught possum, armadillo, raccoon, nutria, a small fox and it is easy to release the animal. Very sturdy. It has a hand guard to protect you from the animal.
Review Ratepoor release catch
The trap is very strongly constructed but the release catch is under too much tension to release easily. One of the door panels may be installed backward as the door panels bind in the full open position and put too much pressure on the catch. I was able to relocate the catch attachment to take pressure off the catch and the trap is useful but still difficult to set. I like the heavy construction and would purchase another but would need to see the catch assy on another trap to insure the pbm isn't a common oneResponse From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWonderful TrapI am extremely happy to buy this trap from an excellent supplier and manufacturer. It was delivered on time. Very well built. Instructions were clear and easy to follow
I bought a 1081 to possibly catch a Bob Cat which may have taken two of our cats. I caught a raccoon the very first night. Since that I have had two others trapped and both escaped. Both were in long enough to root up the grass around it and drag it inside the trap. Both left a stinky calling card also. Then they figured a way out and went on the lamb. Both are at large at present. Now I have a less than a week old trap which I will have to modify to keep them in once trapped (or I guess not trapped if they got out)Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience. Traps should be checked frequently and the animal relocated as soon as possible after being trapped. We recommend placing a blanket or tarp over the trap to keep the animal calmer until it is released.
