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.

release needed minor bending before it would work properly, but good quality otherwise By doginsun

The trap arrived when predicted in perfect condition, it appears to be good quality, and I expect it to last well. The release needed to be 'adjusted' (ie bent straighter) as nothing could have tripped it the way it was, it actually hooked around the wire and held the door securely open, no matter what! Simple fix however but perhaps should be reviewed before packaging.

Trigger Mechanism Not Dependable By StillWaitingToTrap

This is our third Havahart trap but the first X-large. Although it is very sturdy, the trigger mechanism leaves much to be desired. Very sloppy in play. Four nights in a row we watched the targeted animal enter, eat, lay down, and leave without the trip plate springing. We had to do a lot a wire bending and testing to get it to work dependably. Hopefully tonight is the night!

Superb By Company Credit Card

Customer service is superb, they contacted me to offer shipping options that I was not aware of. Very friendly as well. The traps arrived before we had expected! I order the items, my field crew uses them, not able to give evaluation on traps. My team ordered 10; that is positive indication.

Works! By Bonnie

We bought the X-Large trap recently to catch 3 particularly aggressive raccoons that were after our chickens. Once my husband got the hang of how to bait the trap he was able to get all three. Thank you so much! It was worth the money. Also have installed an electric fence to keep predators out. So far so good!

Better than killing pests. By N/a

The trigger for the door is like a hook. There is only one way it works, no way to make it more sensitive. Bait is constantly stolen, works occasionally, many times coons walk in, grab bait and leave. I keep a trail camera by the trap to monitor it's performance. I prefer to relocate rather than kill pests.

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. 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 to ensure that the animal is fully inside the trap and has to maneuver on the trigger plate, increasing the chances of a catch.

Absolute garbage for beaver By Thane

First try using it to live trap a beaver and the door broke. The little clips at the top broke and the beaver was able to escape. Not at all impressed considering it's recommended for beaver, and I need this animal relocated or else it'll meet a less pleasant end.

POOR J-CLIP QUALITY By jocko

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 !!!!!

Not strong enough By Two Bears

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.

Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.  

Our traps are covered by a one year replacement warranty. The clips are not available from our warehouse in a form that the end user can use to repair a trap.  J-clips can be found at many retailers, often packaged for rabbit cages.

Traps door does not stand up to Armadillos. By Old Boy Scout.

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.

We appreciate this feedback and have shared these concerns with our Product Manager. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.

Great products, used them All! By Ol Mac

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!
