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.

Poor trigger mechanism By BLW

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.

Trial & Error By Adam

The trap I ordered I was told would work on a large bobcat that killed our ducks. Haven’t caught him yet and it seems like when another animal takes the bait (like s raccoon). The door doesn’t close or trip. It’s probably user error but any suggestions?

Response From Havahart®
Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Adam,

We recommend testing the trap to make sure it is triggering with little force. The trap's sensitivity can be increased by adding something small to the trigger plate, such as a metal washer, pebble, or magnet. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions and for further assistance.

If you have large Raccoons Plaguing you want the Extra Large Trap By Lew

A year ago we purchased a large 1-door trap and found that very efficient in trapping Raccoons that have been plaguing our home yard. The raccoons disappeared for almost a year. Well that was to good to be realistic and sure enough a new group showed up! In this new group was a Raccoon that was so large the large trap could not lock shut and he escaped twice. So, we purchased an Extra Large Trap. The first night we put it out - Success!!! It took two of us to carry the cage. the Raccoon was so big!!!. It was relocated and the trap was put out a second night. Bingo!!! Another very large Raccoon was caught - a little smaller than the first. The Raccoons have not been back for a week! The Extra Large Trap worked great!!!

Poor Quality Control By Racoon Problem

Bought this trap off of Amazon. Opened the box and the door is laying inside the trap unattached. The clips are in the box looking like they were never crimped. This trap was also missing the second large steel round bar that goes around the cage. Sent it back and bought a second one. Same issue, door is not attached. This one had the second steel round bar. Poor quality control. Sent this one back as well. Bought a different brand for less money that is higher quality.

Poor design By Kurt

Range of motion on trigger was so restricted I had to cut bars away from the rods so trigger could be set properly. Clips used to hold cage are weak compared to other designs.

Trap worked well. By Tony

Had coons on top of my bird feeder at night. Bought the trap and was amazed when I caught 12 coons and released them across the river. Not used to handling animals but put them in the trunk of my car and gave them a ride to their new stomping grounds.

Henni Anker By Henni

I shipped it back, never got to use it. waiting for refund. But will probably purchase the smaller cat size easy set traps as, I purchased them in the past, without any problems. This large heavy duty one the set plate would not work. Trap would not release regardless of the tension.

bad cages By Sam

I had 3 large cages and when I catch a raccoon, it destroyed the plate and bent the wire on every one of them. Your cages use to be heavy duty. . . . .what happened?!! so 1 raccoon per cage, hmmmm. Cages are costly.

Disappointed in reviews & response By Glo

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. :-(
