Havahart® Large 2-Door Safe Release Live Animal Cage Trap

The Havahart® Large 2-Door Safe Release Trap is the latest in animal-trapping innovation. The patented time-release technology makes this trap the first of its kind, while still maintaining Havahart®’s standards for efficiency, reliability, and durability. This trap is easy to set and effectively traps a variety of animals including raccoons, opossums and groundhogs. Plus, the hands-free release is as simple as 1, 2, 3!

Patented Time Release Door

The Havahart® Safe Release Trap is the first ever trap with time-release capabilities! The timer can be set for up to 5 minutes, allowing you to be a safe distance away when the cage door opens. The animal can exit the trap without the user ever needing to come into direct contact with the catch. This hands-free release is the perfect solution for wary first-time trappers and seasoned users alike.

Easy 3 Step Release

With the Havahart® Large 2-Door Safe Release Trap, releasing an animal has never been easier. Simply set the trap’s timer and unlock the latches on the release door. Then walk a safe distance away from the trap and wait for the timer to go off. Once the time is up, the cage door will automatically open to release the animal.

Reduces Stress for You And The Animal

For You: A handle guard and solid doors protect you from coming into contact with the animal while it is inside the trap. The handle allows you to carry the trap away from your body during transport. Plus, the timed door means you can stand at a safe distance away from the trap as the animal is released from the cage.
For The Animal: Strong door locks keep animals safely in the cage, and smooth, rolled edges prevent anxious critters from injuring themselves during transport.

Simple and Effective

You don't have to be a pro to use the Havahart® Safe Release trap. Its simple design allows trappers of all experience levels to capture, transport and release animals with ease. Additionally, this trap features a fine-tuned trip mechanism to target critters of a specific weight range, eliminating false triggers. The spring-loaded doors ensure secure, fast trapping.

Two-Door Design for Higher Catch Rates

The dual door function allows you to create a clear path from one end of the trap to the other by setting it with both ends open. Place the trap against a wall or along an animal’s path in order to capture it as it travels from either direction. In order to access the bait and get to the other opening, the animal must step on the trigger plate, resulting in a catch.

The industrial strength, one-piece wire mesh construction is galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion, while solid doors and steel reinforcements add to the durability of the trap to ensure a long life for your trap.
