Reduces Stress for You And The Animal For You: A handle guard and solid doors protect you from coming into contact with the animal while it is inside the trap. The handle allows you to carry the trap away from your body during transport. Plus, the timed door means you can stand at a safe distance away from the trap as the animal is released from the cage. For The Animal: Strong door locks keep animals safely in the cage, and smooth, rolled edges prevent anxious critters from injuring themselves during transport.

simple and effective
Simple and Effective You don't have to be a pro to use the Havahart® Safe Release trap. Its simple design allows trappers of all experience levels to capture, transport and release animals with ease. Additionally, this trap features a fine-tuned trip mechanism to target critters of a specific weight range, eliminating false triggers. The spring-loaded doors ensure secure, fast trapping.
Two-Door Design for Higher Catch Rates The dual door function allows you to create a clear path from one end of the trap to the other by setting it with both ends open. Place the trap against a wall or along an animal’s path in order to capture it as it travels from either direction. In order to access the bait and get to the other opening, the animal must step on the trigger plate, resulting in a catch.
