How to Use

Arming live trap

  • Step 1: Choose the right size trap for type of animal that needs to be removed.
  • Step 2: Place the trap in your desired area. Make sure it is on a flat surface. You may need to put a weight on top of the trap in case the pest animal tries to knock the cage over.
  • Step 3: Bait and set the trap. Be sure the bait is near the back of the trap to ensure that the animal will need to step on the trigger plate in order to reach the food. Set the trap by pushing on the door lock and lifting the door plate. Keep the door plate lifted while pulling the trigger arm forward to set it. You will know it is set when the trigger arm's hook catches the door. 
  • Step 4: Check the trap once in the morning and once in the evening. Any non-target animals should be released immediately. Once you have captured your desired animal, check your local authorities to make sure you are correctly relocating the animal. Place a towel over the cage to avoid frightening the animal.

Works most of the time, but the bait is bait plate should have some kind of holding devise. Bait simply slides of or very easy to steal without triggering the trap. I use a bent paper clip to hold it more firm
Works most of the time.
Trigger plate wont hold bait, like seeds.

Trap is not tripping
I was really hoping this trap would be the "suburban" solution to reducing the number of rabbits living under my deck & eating my landscaping. After loading the trap as described & leaving it out overnight, we have woken up 3 mornings in a row to find the food gone inside the trap but the trap not tripped. If I put my hand inside the cage & trigger the trap myself, it flips the door. It does feel like I have to give it some real pressure to get it to snap. Apparently it is not sensitive enough to trip when a small animal is inside snacking on carrots (?). Either that or we have super sneaky critters! Disappointed.

Simple and effective.
I live in a heavily wooded, isolated area of Central Texas. Raccoons (and Coyotes) rule the night out here. This trap easily holds a 40lb raccoon with room for it to turn around, sit up or lie down until released. It is well made, very sturdy and easy to set. The only negative is that it weighs 25lbs empty. That weight plus an adult raccoon makes it somewhat awkward to carry with the single wire handle in the middle of top on outside of the trap. I wld recommend this humane, live animal trap.

Pleasantly surprised
After using a competitive brand of trap that had to be assembled and was a challenge to set, I was pleasantly surprised by the greater ease of setting this already assembled trap and its flawless functioning; I can recommend this product without reservation.

Great live traps.
These live traps appear to be made by havahart for Solutions and are readily available and priced very competitively. They work well.

Did not work properly.
The rod connecting to the tray at the bottom of the cage seemed to be too long. When set, the tray was practically at the bottom of cage (nearly horizontal), and pressure on the tray did not set off the trap. I probably should have sent this back, but I kept it and tried to fix it by shortening the connecting rod. It worked a little better, but haven't caught a squirrel yet, and overall I'm very dissatisfied with the trap.

Not Yet
Haven't set it yet because its a little stiff. I want to use it on a squirrel. I think I can file it down. I don't want to use lubricant because of the smell. Great size and price.

  5. Q:Is the small trap good for gophers? I just got a squirrel in a gopher trap and now I feel like a killer! Help please
    A:Gophers spend most of their time underground in their self-created tunnel systems, these fast-moving rodents can be difficult to control or capture. A humane trap can be used, but for the previous reasons will prove to be ineffective without additional underground baiting. We recommend following the tips and products suggested throughout our Gopher control DIY guide.

  6. Q:What is the right size trap for raccoons? I have a family of five living in my garage, Momma and 4 kids. Can I catch more than one at a time?
    A:I purchased the large live trap for a fox problem w had and it worked well to trap both the male and female fox. I would use the large trap size for raccoons as well. These traps appear to be made by Havahart for Solutions and the large trap is the same as the extra large Havahart live trap.

  10. Q:How do you set this trap?
    A:Just be sure the trip plate is all the way up when you set the hook in the door. I had to bend the hook end a bit to get it to get it where it needed to be to release when the plate is all the way up. Push the double bar in and raise the door with the handle, hold it up while gripping the trip wire on the outside of the side of the trap, make sure the hook on end of trip wire catches the latch point on the door.
