Safe for You and the Animal

For You: A solid door and handle guard protect you from contact with a trapped animal, and the carrying handle allows you to hold the trap away from your body while an animal is inside.

For the Animal: A strong door lock keeps the animal safely inside the trap, while smooth, rolled internal trap edges prevent injuries to animals as they are being transported, or as they struggle to escape.

Sharp edges around entry door..
Dec 10, 2023
The trap has sharp edges around the entry door. Razor sharp. For the price paid, it should have been de-burred.

bought this trap and the animal escaped after setting it the first time. animal push the trap open and went into my attic. The lock is not very good. The design needs to be redone and the mechanism needs to be changed for locking.

You need to revise the suitability of this trap. An armadillo tore mine up and escaped. Your site says this trap is suitable for armadillos. It isn’t and now I am not sure it can be repaired to work.

We are sorry to hear that happened! It is always important to check your trap frequently as no animal should remain in a cage for an extended period of time. When it comes to armadillos, these animals are equipped with armor and are expert diggers! They are known to try to escape, digging into the bottom of the trap or even running into the trap walls. Monitor your trap frequently to ensure a safe and successful trap and release. Our traps are covered under a 1-year replacement policy. Please give us a call at 855-542-8242 for assistance.
I have two of your ...
Jun 10, 2023
I have two of your large animal traps - one a few decades old, and one brand new. I set the new trap last night for the first time, and found out this morning that the raccoon that was obviously in it overpowered the latch to the spring arm and escaped. Upon comparing the two traps, it’s obvious the new one was never going to keep a raccoon in it for very long. It’s been cheapened in materials, but not in cost. Looks like I’m fixing the old one…

Bought this same trap as ...
Mar 23, 2023
Bought this same trap as 1 from 20 years ago but it doesn't work as well. I have lost 2 out of 3 coons so far. The latch doesn't drop down far enough when the door shuts so all they have to do is keep banging the bottom of the door until the trap door rod slips past the latch. The depth of the latch isn't deep enough like the old trap to keep the door from being opened. I originally bought the $50 one that said was made in China and they broke it the 1st night so I took it back and bought the one make in USA hoping for better results since it was 40% more. Guess I will have to reengineer this to see if I can make it work better like the old one!!! Old one is 100% unless it gets tipped over, this one 33% so far!!! I'll see what I can do and report on the possible fix and results. Tried to add a picture but said it was too large.

Racoons are quiet and content when trapped and released
Aug 16, 2022
live in the city and last year I trapped 12 racoons and this year already I caught 13. There is a small creek nearby so apparently, they travel down the creek and into neighborhoods. This trap is safe and effective and easy to move to my truck and then out to the woods. I throw an old sheet over it so the racoon can be more at ease and the sheet is great in transporting to final destination. Don't forget to use a leather glove for added protection. The large 1 door animal trap has plenty of room for the racoon to settle down. The racoon is quiet and content when found and released.

Great Trap !!!
Mar 8, 2021
Very happy with the purchase of the Havahart Large 1 Door Animal Trap. I had a problem with rabbits eating my hydrangea plants. I baited the trap with some leafy lettuce greens and dehydrated apple rings. In 7 days I trapped 7 rabbits. Will keep the trap out all winter and spring.
