Trapping nuisance animals has never been easier! Patented Easy Set® technology allows you to set your trap with one pull of a lever. Expert-tested and proven effective, Havahart® Easy Set® traps are the most robust traps on the market, contructed with rust-resistant galvanized steel and strudy hardware, making the handling experience safe and comfortable.
Easy to Set & Release
Simply bait the trap and then pull back the Easy Set® lever to set it with a single hand. The trip plate's sensitivity targets the animal's specific size and weight, while a solid spring-loaded door ensures a quick and secure capture. To release, just stand to the rear of the cage and pull back the Easy Set® lever. It's that easy - no more destructive digging, and no more tipped trash cans!
Safe for You and the Animal
Inside the cage, smooth, rounded edges and a strudy door lock keep the animal safely inside, while a solid hand guard limits contact with the carrier. And a rigid carry handle makes it easy to carry even large animals at a safe distance.

Sensitivity Screw to Target Specific Sized Animals
This sensitivity screw allows you to tailor the trip force of the trap to the target animal. For small animals like squirrels that require more sensitivity to trip the trap, turn the sensitivity screw to the left (-). Larger animals like skunks need less sensitivity, so turn the screw to the right (+), generating a less sensitive trip action. The sensitivity screw gives you the opportunity to catch only the animals you want.

Review RateEasy to use
So far I haven't caught the coon. Still trying did catch a cat. Matter of time. I also have your small trap caught so many Chipmunks I can't count them.
Review RateDoor locking failed
I bought model 1085 trap but found out it has same problem with the door locking mechanism. The metal rod slipped off from the plastic stopper at the bottom of the door and raccoon escaped. It would hold the door better if there was a groove along the stopper to lock in the metal rod.Response From WoodstreambrandsKristen : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing your feedback.
Review RateNot very effective
When I first got the trap, the gate would not fall. There was no clearance between the gate and the side of the trap, and the gate would jam. I bent some of the wires on the side of the trap outward, and solved that problem. However, the trip plate is not very sensitive. It is also not stiff enough, and one side will push to the floor without tripping the trap. It is easy to set, but since it only works about half time, that's not much of an advantage.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We assure you, our traps should function as designed without any modifications, and we're happy to honor our one-year replacement policy for this trap. If you find that the trap is not sensitive enough for the animal you're trying to catch, we recommend placing an extra bit of weight, such as a pebble or a few rocks, on the bait plate.

Review RateOK for small animals
Works well for opossums and cats, but raccoons have totally destroyed 2 different traps and escaped. My 40 year old trap is made much stronger and I have never had a raccoon escape. It is just very difficult for the wife to set.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWorked immediately
Definitely is Easy Set. I had so much problem with my previous trap that I thought I better spring for a 2nd one that I hoped would work. Worked immediately. Put a trail of banana pieces into the trap (per suggestion from a Nature Conservancy guy) and caught my groundhog immediately. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because he was banging so vigorously at the trap opening that I was afraid he push out. Put a piece of rebar thru sides and that held the door closed nicely.
Review RateIneffective locking mechanism
Changing my original Five Star December 8, 2018 review. The trap is easy to set. It easily releases the animal. It's effective at catching the animal. However, we've caught eight raccoons. Of the eight, three managed to escape, which defeats the purpose of catching them in the first place. The door locking mechanism simply isn't strong enough. An "escape rate" of 37% is too high. Not sure I'd recommend this trap.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateTrip plate not sensitive enough
I use the smaller 2-door traps and they work awesome in catching squirrels and rats. However, the past two weeks I have used this larger model in order to attempt to catch something under my house that is too big for the smaller traps. I need some advice because the sensitivity knob cannot be set sensitive enough and the animal is merely grabbing the food despite it being placed at the back of the trap per the instructions without setting off the trap. It is either bypassing the trip mechanism altogether, or perhaps it is not heavy enough to trip the trap while stepping on it? I have even placed obstacles in the trap to force it to have to cross onto the trip plate, but to no avail yet. The problem seems to be with the lack of sensitivity with this particular trap. Can anyone offer me some guidance on this? I have adjusted the sensitivity screw knob many different ways, but nothing is working and the critter always gets away with the bait. Thank you.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback, thank you for taking the time to provide it! To further increase the sensitivity, weight can be added to the trigger pedal in the form of small stones, metal washers, and similar objects. Suspending the bait from the top of the trap may increase the interaction the animal has with the trigger pedal, ensuring a successful catch. These traps are covered by our 30-day guarantee and a 1-year replacement policy with a copy of the purchase receipt.

Review RateNew easy set trap ,,
The new easy set trap ls so much better to use than the older model. I wasn't intending to " get rid " of animals with it. I intended using it to catch a few cats so they can be brought to homes. Now anyone want to buy my other trap ? It's clean and new. I never used it. I will be keeping model 1085. It's easier to set.
Review RateNot good
The trap work well as far as catching the large racoon. The problem is that it couldn’t hold it. The racoon easily overpowered the back lash and got out after eating the bate. It did this twice. So I don’t plan to use it again until I can custom modify the locking mechanism into something more stury that doesn’t allow a racoon to back out of it.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry for this experience. For the best results, we recommend monitoring the trap frequently. Animals can quickly become scared and anxious and will go to extreme measures to escape. To ensure a safe and successful catch and release, we recommend releasing the animal as quickly as possible.
