Best-Selling X-Large 2-Door Trap

Havahart® X-Large 2-Door Traps have been designed with the safety of the animals in mind. These large raccoon traps, with two spring loaded doors, have many features to allow safe, quick and easy catches. Havahart® X-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 large raccoon traps are made in the U.S.A.

Very good product By Diane

I used this trap to catch feral cats for spay/neuter/ release. I had been working with an animal sanctuary using their trap with no success. Because this trap has 2 sides open, the cats were more willing to take the bait and I had great success which I never had with the old trap. I used the extra large which I felt was best for the full grown cats we were trapping. I had been attempting trapping for months with the sanctuary' s trap and actually only had to use this trap for 2 days to trap before we were able to spay/neuter/ release all the remaining feral cats.

A great trap that could be a little stronger. By Richard

An excellent trap that works very well. I have captured and relocated dozens or armadillos over the years. The only issue I have with my Havahart is that sooner or later I catch a big armadillo that is strong enough to destroy the trap by bending the door retainers or the cage itself. I have had to replace 3 traps because of this. The occasional raccoon, opossum, or neighbor's cat have been safely captured unharmed with no impact on the trap. Mechanically, the traps are the best, but if armadillos are your target, be prepared for them to be damaged. They aren't quite strong enough for the "big ones".

Top of the line. By Tater

Great traps. The traps work great as long as you use the proper enticement for the desired animals. Caught some of my garden pests already.

Armadillo busts out By Kris

I own2 Havahart 1045’s and in 10 years have caught about 150 possum and about 15 armadillos, a few feral cats and a few raccoons. In the last 2 months an armadillo has managed to but out 4x between the 2 traps and bent and damaged both. Figuring they were compromised, I bought another 1045 about 10 days ago. I check every morning plus I have a trail camera to monitor. Last night Dec16 at 1126 pm I caught either THE Armadillo or an armadillo. It busted out at 1137pm, broke the weld on the door and bent the top of the entrance. I planned to take it back to Academy and order a 1050 through Havahart but now after reading these bad ‘Armadillo’ reviews, I think I won’t. Hey Havahart, please don’t send the nonsense that I should check the trap more. It took this one 11 minutes to but out. I have pictures with date/Times Thankyou

Ready for more armadillo control By David

Have caught two armadillos in three days. Picked trap up after work both times, had to leave the armadillos in trap over night. Haven't had any of the problems some of the other reviews talked about, one was a large adult male that tried the doors many times in transport. Very happy with the double door trap, just ordered two more!

not heavy duty as told By sgb

I bought two of the model 1050 based on what havahart sayed would trap armadillos and was heavy duty,they wont hold an armadillo at all.of course they say you should check the trap often as an excuse.i didn't plan on watching a trap all the time.they shouldn't advertise wont they wont do.and when you call they try to sell you a wal mart card what customer service never again with this company

Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. Our traps are made from high tensile galvanized steel. This trap has been tested to catch armadillos.

Releasing an animal as soon as possible is extremely important when trapping a live animal. A trapped animal can quickly become panicked when left in a trap for an extended period of time away from food, water, shelter, or their young.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for more trapping assistance. We would like to learn more about what occurred when contacting our company.

Want old style trap with levers instead of "hook" By Dale

I have four traps of different sizes. The new design just lets the raccoons or squirrels have dinner and go back home. One trap is probably 30+ years old, two door with the levers. This works all the time! During the past 2 weeks have caught 3 woodchucks - with no bate. Just set trap at entrance and they go in. Nice! So, is there a trap available with the old style levers to set instead of the "new" hook which doesn't work for me. A small trap with the lever handle works great for squirrels - 8 so far this season.

thumbs down. By I don't have one.

I imagined a two door trap would be useful because you could open both doors and have an inviting place to lure in animals that need to be trapped. Unfortunately the way the trap is made, you can open one or the other ends but not both at the same time. I was disappointed because this is really just a one door trap for more money. I wouldn't recommend it over a one door trap.

Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

When setting this trap as a two door trap, we recommend setting the left door first, then rotating the trigger, allowing the second door to be set as well.

We apologize for this experience and would be happy to provide additional assistance.  Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team directly at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for further help.

Very Poor product fro Havahart and very poor services from Academy. By Frank

I bought a 2 doors x-large Havahart traps at Academy 40 days ago. The trap caught an armadillo but he was able to go right under the door, he escaped and the trap broke. I took the trap back and because it was used they would not exchange it. This is the last time I will shop at Academy and the last time I will buy anything from Havahart

Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Frank,

We are very sorry to hear about this experience and are happy to help.  To prevent damage to traps or injury to an animal, we recommend checking the traps often and relocating as soon as possible.  Once an animal has been caught, placing a blanket or tarp over the trap can keep it calmer until it is released.

Our traps are covered by a one year replacement warranty. Retailers generally handle just the first 30 days after purchase. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call directly at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) so we can make this right.

Escaped again By bigbluezee3

Well built but the latching system will not hold caught a armadillo three times all three times it shook the latch up and got away.
