Best-Selling Large 2-Door Animal Trap

Havahart® Large 2-Door Traps have been designed with the safety of the animals in mind. These raccoon traps, with two spring loaded doors, have many features to allow safe, quick and easy catches. Havahart® Large 2-Door Traps are constructed of sturdy rust-resistant wire mesh with steel reinforcements for long life and galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. Mesh openings are smaller than competing traps of comparable size to prevent escapes and stolen bait. Two spring-loaded doors allow animals to enter from either direction. Sensitive triggers ensure quick, secure captures that target the specific animal's size, eliminating undesired catches. Solid doors and handle guards protect users during transportation, while smoothed internal edges protect and prevent injuries to animals. These traps are made in the U.S.A.

Works great, but needs larger and more secure finger guard plate around carry handle. By Wajon

Got two of these traps last Summer to deal with a neighborhood invasion of ground hogs/woodchucks which some ignorant neighbor had let move in to their unused garden plot! This is a densely populated neighborhood, in the middle of town, but close to a large field surrounded by wooded embankments. A mother dug a den somewhere in that underused garden plot, and soon she and her young growing specimens were invading everyone's yard and gardens! Actually saw one strolling down the sidewalk on more than one occasion! So I first rented a trap, a much older version of the two door variety. It worked, but when I got a skunk in it, I called a professional and paid him to deal with the trapped animal. He said he'd never use one of those older models, because the animal could simply eventually roll the cage onto it's side, or even over upside down, and in that case the door just opens and the animal escapes. So after that I purchased two new models which have a much more secure door locking system. And they worked beautifully. All in all last Summer I captured 3 woodchucks, 3 skunks, and an opossum! I did not get the easy set style, and it is a bit tricky to get the catch set just so. This year I've purchased the smaller size traps to deal with grey squirrels and I did get the easy set, and that works so slick! If I were to purchase the large sizes again, I would get the easy set for those too. But easy set or not, Havahart traps work beautifully for capturing and relocating critter pests. I gave these only a four star, because the guard plate around the handle, to shield ones fingers from the critter inside, is much too small, and it is not attached very securely. One of mine fell off, and thankfully I noticed and secured it before an animal had got inside. On the older style that I mentioned the whole top of the trap was a solid and that was much safer to pick up and transport. So that older style didn't secure the doors well, but it guarded ones fingers better. The new styles have much better door locks, but much skimpier finger guard plates.

I would not recommend; I would not buy another one By CB

Trigger rods do not come pre-assembled; instructions are worthless; trying to put trigger rods together is not easy.

Excellent trap By Bob

Caught three groundhogs within 12 hours and relocated them. They didn't appear to seriously hurt themselves with this trap like other traps I've tried.

Not happy By IRv

Not happy with this trap. Had armadillo trapped but when I went to pick up the cage to transport him he was able to push the trap door open and bent the wire framing of the door and escaped. The flaw is the angle at which the trap doors close...which makes it easy to pry open.

Havahart® has a long history of producing high-quality and reliable products. We apologize for this experience and would be happy to provide assistance.

We recommend checking traps often and placing a blanket or tarp over the trap when an animal is captured.  This helps to calm the animal and reduce the efforts to escape.  

Our traps are covered by a one year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.

The trap worked beyond my expectations By Chuckers
We purchased the trap within this past month and the first time we set it, we caught the woodchuck that has been terrorizing my plants. We released the animal in a wooded area about five miles from our house and have not seen him since. So glad about that

Works well. By Al V
I bought this a couple of months ago to take of a ground hog problem. Once I had the cage in the right setting, i.e. under my deck vice beside, it worked great. My friend borrowed it, and he caught himself a raccoon. The only thing wrong with it is that I lost the handle already. That design issue needs to be addressed but the rest worked great.

Tripping Mechanism By Catch Em If You Can

Tripping mechanism wants to hang up. It requires too much weight to be placed on the trip board to trigger the door closure. If anyone has encountered the same problem and has a fix, please contact us at the email address below.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Kelly : Consumer Relations Representative


Thank you for contacting Havahart®. We apologize for this experience and would be happy to provide assistance.

Once the trap is set it should not require a lot of force to trigger it. Are you able to provide pictures of the trap showing the trigger rod in the set position and pictures of the entire trap? Does the trap appear to be bent or damaged in any way?

We look forward to hearing from you. Our Consumer Relations Team can be reached at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions.

Q.What is the advantage having a 2 door system opposed to a 1 door?

When used appropriately, both 1-door and 2-door traps can be equally effective. The use of a 1-door trap vs. a 2-door trap really comes down to a matter of personal preference. To learn more about these trap types, please click on the link below.


Q.does this fold flat when not in use?

This trap is not designed to collapse when not in use.
