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.

hand protection double door By Gaige14

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.

poor release catch By copperhead

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 one

So-So By coveylane

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. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance. Our traps are covered by a one year replacement warranty.

Trap Useless to me! By Screwed

Instructions on opening the cage are locked inside cage.

Response From Havahart®
Tara : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience and appreciate the feedback. This concern has been shared with our Product Managers. To open the trap life the door lock on top of the trap. As you push the outer door against the inner door, release the door lock and lift both doors together.

It "ain't" what it used to be! By Phread
I just bought 2 of these to compliment the one I had already owned for 20 years or more. The old one has worked great, and still does! Same model, same size. But the new ones are not built as well and have implemented a few "minor" design changes that I believe to be detriments:
1. As delivered, neither cage would not latch into the door lock bracket when tripped because the outer door rubbed against the top of the cage and would not reach the lock. An animal could easily push against the door and pop it open. I had to bend the top of the cage up (not the easiest thing to do to get it just right) to allow enough clearance for the outer door to clear the top of the cage and securely lock into the bracket.
2. The frame is of lighter build and was slightly out of square when I received them. This too prevents the outer door from closing and latching securely. See next item.
3. The trigger rod on the old cage was designed to be in front of the outer door when it was closed - no interference at all between the trigger rod and the outer door. The new cages have the trigger mechanism beside (or a little behind) the outer door when it is closed - the door must pass by the trigger to engage the door lock bracket. When the cage is just a little out of square as noted above (uneven ground, etc.) the door catches on the trigger and does not engage into the lock bracket. On one of the cages, the outer door was tangled in the trigger rod when I took it out of the box and it took some effort to get it free to even allow the door to move.
3. The rod from the trigger plate to the door release trigger rod is now on the outside of the cage instead of the inside. An animal can easily trip the trap by brushing against the rod without being in the cage! Coons are good at that.

I thought about returning the cages for a refund due to these deficiencies, but after bending the top to let the outer door swing clear and being aware of the more flimsy construction, I kept them. I highly doubt that the new cages will give the decades of service the old style cage has given. If you buy this cage, be aware that you will have to make some mechanical adjustments.

Excellent By Pesky Varmints
We bought 5 Havahart traps and have been very happy with them. We've used many traps, and have found the Havahart's hold up best to all the critters and the Florida weather. It was an affordable price, and were delivered very quickly. We will be ordering many more for the future. Thanks Havahart!

Too Short By Fab Shop

We purchased this about a month ago and have been trying to catch a raccoon. We have baited the trap with multiple types of bait and the culprit is able to steal the bait from the trap without setting it off. We have wrapped the back of the trap with clear plastic so it can't reach through the cage, and it is going inside the cage and reaching over the trip switch and getting the bait. We purchased the XL trap to remedy this issue that we were having with our other traps.

Response From Havahart®
Tara : Consumer Relations Representative

We appreciate the time taken to share your feedback and apologize for this experience. We recommend digging a small hole and placing the bait in the hole. Place the back of the trap over the hole. This will make it more difficult for the raccoon to get the bait.

Q&A
Q.I need a trap for fox., but I've noticed several animals locally (trail cam photos) with broken tails,. .which I would like to avoid. Some Adult grey foxes are longer than 42" . Any Ideas ??
A.

This XL size trap is our largest available. To ensure that an animal fully enters a trap before it trips, we recommend securing the bait to the trap, behind the trip plate. Alternatively, a hole can be dug under the trip plate with the bait placed inside.

These methods of baiting will cause the animal to enter the trap further, work harder to access the bait, and put more pressure on the trip plate, increasing the chances of a successful catch.

Q.What size is the holes in the mesh
A.

The spacing between the wire mesh is 1" x 1".

Q.Would the x-large 1 door trap work for wild turkey?
A.

We apologize, but this trap is not recommended for use against wild turkey.
