Bought this live trap and used it once the same day. Caught a chipmunk within a couple minutes. While carrying the trap to release him on the other side of a field which had a patch of corn to go through the trigger rod fell off. I must have hit it on a corn stalk. When I got home and went to set the trap again of course I couldn't with no trigger rod. I called customer service the next day hoping to buy a new trigger rod. I found out you can't get parts for the trap so I figured I would have to buy another trap and pay more attention to the trigger rod. Maybe make sure the rod was snapped totally in place if that was the problem. Anyway as a courtesy since I only had the trap a day before I lost the part the lady sent me a new trap. Who does that anymore. It was my fault totally. Great customer service above and beyond and the trap does work as I caught one of my quarry within a couple minutes. Thanks Havahart. P.S. Maybe you should sell trigger rods for old guys who mess up. A lot cheaper than a new trap. Thanks again!!

I like this one much better than the 2 door medium I had before. Having a much easier time catching California ground squirrels in this one. Is working to catch the ground squirrels and even caught a pack rat the other day. Using peanuts for bait and have a heavy rock on top and medium rocks on each side to keep it stable.

Trigger arm was missing from the package. Store had closed and was unable to exchange. Made my own with small maple block and steel bar stock. Hopefully it will work in actual use vs. testing. Thinking my fix will be more sensitive to trap movement. Quality seems fairly solid. Some sharp edges/points on the wires..bad for skin, good for gripping surfaces.

Poorly designed. Either trap set off by outside contact or bait taken without the trap functioning. I took advantage of the return policy!

Setting up the loose trigger was a pain. It was so sensitive the squirrel set it off. Your other traps worked fine. This is a lemon. What a waste of money.

Trigger arm is totally exposed and is easily triggered when animal looks for a way in. Trigger arm must travel higher than the top of the trap in order to set, so above trap must be clear. These two things limit how and where the trap can be placed. Also the door will not latch unless it is completely shut, so if a squirrel tail is sticking out of the trap, the door won't latch and the squirrel just turns around and pushes open the door. I witnessed this first hand. Material quality is good, but I would not recommend this trap and will be returning it.

The product worked at first but now the squirrels have learned to outsmart the trap. I do not recommend this trap. Maybe one of the others will work better.

Thank you for sharing this feedback. We're sorry to hear that the desired results were not seen with this trap. When baiting, it is important to make sure that the bait cannot be easily grabbed by the animal you are trying to catch. Making it more difficult to access, will increase the length of time the animal interacts with the trap, increasing the chances of a successful catch.

Please follow the steps below to set this trap -

1. Turn the Door Lock to the open position.
2. Holding the door open, place the bait behind the Trip Plate.
3. Remove the Trigger Rod from the top of the trap. Attach the plastic end to the Trigger Rod Connection.
4. Press down on the assembled Trigger Rod. Meanwhile, lift the Trip Plate Trigger and gently position the flat end of the Trigger Rod under the Trip Plate Trigger so the door is held open and the Trip Plate is level.
5. Close the Door Lock by resting it on top of the door.
