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 RateDisappointed in reviews & response
I just read many reviews because I was going to purchase a trap. I’ve had Havahart traps since my Dad bought them back in the 60s. They were always made so well and lasted for years. My daughter still has one of those traps and it’s still catching Raccoons with it. I needed to buy a larger trap so naturally went right to Havahart first. But... it sure sounds like your quality and customer service has gone down hill thru the years. Very sad to see that. And... your customer service that is answering these reviews is certainly not offering any type of solution, fix or parts available to resolve what is obviously a much inferior trap than the products that Havahart use to be known for. Telling people you are sorry and going to report the problem and reminding them about the 30 day return option, over & over, is NOT CUSTOMER SERVICE. It’s basically blowing off their review so that you can say “we answered the review but we have no intention of offering you a solution to the problem or even parts to fix it, other than telling people to return within 30 days or purchasing another inferior trap.” Certainly not what this potential customer wants to see in reviews... especially many reviews expressing the exact same issues with no resolution in response. I won’t be buying a trap from Havahart, as I planned to do, and it’s a shame that a company & product that once had an impeccable reputation has obviously lowered their standards and using inferior materials and cheaper production methods. Such a disappointment. :-(Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateAbsolutely junk !
The purchase of this so called trap is my fault for not reading all of the negative reviews. The trigger mechanism is a very poor design ! The clips that hold the whole thing together are junk ! First racoon tore it apart. Called customer service (in name only) they will not sell parts. I would never again buy one of their products for any reason.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGood size trap
this trap is definitely big enough, but so far this raccoon is still smart enough to send smaller ones in to it. It's a little difficult to bait because of it size and the fact that I'm short doesn't help. I found that by using wire to hang the bait , I can pass it through the holes until I get it far enough back.
Review RateVery good trap, would recommend it to anyone dealing with large and trap smart coons.
This trap has worked very well for us, 6 coons so far and counting. Has never failed, very reliable. Two little glitches, the metal clips that hold the door in place are very soft and the coons have been able to remove 2 of them. I will have to replace them with something stronger or the door will eventually fall off. The trigger mechanism leaves something to be desired and is nothing like the pictures in the instructions. Had to do some wire bending for it to work properly.
Review RateWon't adjust and totally useless
This was a waste of money. Could not get it adjusted to work. When I got it to the point it would hold the door open, the trap plate was all the way down and no pressure would spring the trap door. When I got it so the trap plate was about 1" high as recommended, pressing down on it would not spring the door. I am at a lost as to how to adjust it to work as advertised. Instructions that came with it are no help and diagrams don't reflect the parts they are talking about. I'm going to see about returning it.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreat trap...works perfect
This trap is amazing. I live in the middle of a very fine city. We had 1-2 foxes that got displaced from a commercial development. 2 foxes grew to 7-8 and one jumped out of the bushes one night ready to eat my dog. So I ordered a trap. To date I have caught and released 6 beautiful foxes completely unharmed in anyway. I love this trap. As I type, I just caught another and its mate is sitting across the street looking at the trap. I will catch it tomorrow night and release. The best bait, by far, is anything smoked. I used smoked sausage and I had 3 in my front yard at one time. Save your leftovers. Great trap and extremely humane!!!!
Review RateWish they made them like they used to!
I recently purchased this trap from tractor supply company. the first night I caught a large raccoon which ruined the trigger plate. Now it will not work. I had one of these traps for years and never had a problem catching possums, raccoons, groundhogs, squirrels, rabbits, etc. I gave that trap to my daughter, who still has success with it on her farm. But the first night I used this new model, it wasn't usable again.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratearmadillo destroys trap
I bought the extra-large trap to catch armadillos. I caught one a few weeks ago, and as I walked up to the trap, he rammed the door and ripped it from the trap. I mean completely off. I assume the door was attached to the cage by metal clips that act as a hinge, but when I contacted customer service they told me to just buy another trap. At $110 each, this was not what I wanted to hear. I have always bought Havahart traps because of their reputation for quality. I can get a similar item at Tractor Supply for $30 (which I will do from now on). Terrible customer service. I would have paid for the replacement clips.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are very sorry to hear of this experience! Armadillos are known to run into trap walls to try to escape. We recommend monitoring the trap frequently to ensure a safe and successful catch and release.

Review RateNot worth the extra money
We've had a raccoon coming through our cat flap regularly. We set the trap several nights with absolutely no luck. We've tested the trigger and it goes off, but this animal is way smarter than us. We've used the large trap with great success, I really think that there may be a design flaw in the X-large.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We are sorry to hear the desired results were not seen and have shared these comments with our Product Managers. When handling the trap, it is important to wear gloves so your human scent is not transferred to the trap, deterring the raccoon.

Review RatePoor quality for the price
For the price I paid was looking for a quality cage, we had to adjust the trigger rod to even be able to hook the door open, the trip plate works only part of the time, I pushed on it with a grabber and it wouldn't trip. the j clips are horrible, the raccoons destroyed them trying to get out, when we were able to catch one. Will be contacting customer service to return this unitResponse From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
