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.
Effective & Trusted Since 1940
Havahart® traps are designed and tested by trapping professionals for the best efficacy and strength in the industry. Constructed of premium galvanized steel for added durability, these traps stand up to the test of time. And with the added features of a patented lever and enlarged handle guard, Easy Set® is the premium choice.

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 RateGreat quality and design
This trap brings my ownership of Havahart traps to a total of 6. Each one working just needed more for the > of the number of varmints on the farm. This last one is awesome easy to set. Would like to suggest that you incorporate a small lockable door above bait area for better and easier placement of bait.
Review RatePretty good traps
Have caught most of the squirrels in my area and one skunk. Good traps. Will consider you again if I need further traps. Thx
Review RateEasy Open Door
The easy set door is easy to set but the easy set door is also an easy open door for a large belligerent racoon or armadillo. This is in regards to the model 1085 trap. The model 1079 is a better trap and has never failed yet.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Found trap easy to set up, adjustable tension was good. Worked very well.
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. Please contact our Customer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242)
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
