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.

I bought the double door animal trap from Ace Hardware in The Woodlands, Texas on Saturday because something had been digging up areas in my yard around flowers and pooping in my yard. I didn't have a chance to use it until last night (Sunday). Set it up with cat food inside at about 8:30 p.m. By 10:00 p.m. we had a raccoon inside.
I covered the animal trap with a black very large trash bag and took it to a heavily wooded park on Monday morning to release about 10 miles away. I do think putting the black plastic cover over the trap had a calming effect on the raccoon.
Hope it does not return. However, I'm sure there are brothers and/or sisters and cousins hanging around, so we will try to capture them next so my yard won't be dug up any more.

This is an updated version of the trap. It is much better, easier to use, and it does function as the mfg says it will.
