Designed For You by Trapping Professionals
Designed and field-tested by trapping professionals, the Havahart® X-Small 2-Door Live Animal Trap is built to target and trap the smallest critters with ease. Thanks to its careful construction, small animals cannot outsmart this mouse trap; the trip plate is sensitive enough that even the lightest animals like chipmunks and mice can effectively trigger the door closed, and the mesh openings of the cage are smaller than competing traps, so these little critters cannot steal the bait.
Safe for You and the Animal
A live trap is a humane tool for eliminating these tiny varmints from your home or property, and Havahart® makes the process safe for both you and the animal.
For You: Solid doors and hand guards protect you from contact with a trapped animal.
For the Animal: A strong door lock keeps the animal safely inside the cage, while smooth, rolled internal trap edges prevent injuries during transport, or as they struggle to escape.
A Two-Door Traps is Swift and Versatile
This two-door live mouse trap allows you to create a clear path from one end of the cage to the other by setting it with both ends open. Place a two-door trap against a wall or along an animal's path in order to capture it as it travels from either direction. Or choose to set the trap with only one door open, and place it in front of an entryway to catch mice, chipmunks or voles as they venture inside.
Havahart® Means Built to Last
Havahart® builds traps with premium materials intended to endure harsh weather and unpredictable critters. This chipmunk and mouse cage trap is made with galvanized steel for optimum resistance against rust and corrosion, ensuring many uses and a long trap life.

Review RateWorks OK but the rod & catch assembly could be made easier & consumer friendly
So far I've had the 1020 trap 3 days & caught two mice One really fat little bugger & one small The only complaint I have is setting the rods & catch takes patience & steady hands The first mouse was caught with both doors open I just couldn't get the trap set with both doors open for the next catch So It works well with just one open Used uncooked oatmeal & Cheerios
Review RateYou have to fix them before you use them.
If you buy this trap, be prepared to rework it some. We bought three of them and they all needed work. The bottom of the trap is not flat so the slightest breeze will rock it and it will trip. Bend the bottom flat until it sits without rocking. The bars will need to be bent until they line up properly and you will probably have to file flats on them where the two round bars form the setting mechanism. We've caught dozens of chipmunks in them and relocated them miles away!Response From Safer Brand®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateTook care of my problem
I was perfect for catching my mouse. I little touchy on the catch but it worked and I was able to relocate my mouse to the church woods.
Review Rateterrible; ineffective
useless trap. I tried everything (moving the bait, changing from 2 sided to 1 sided. Every time the chipmunk escaped. It is far too powerful. I have used a gentler trap in the past, caught 6 feral kittens. It uses a hair trigger, subtle activating system, I only had to adjust it once for a particularly clever kitten. With this trap: 4 releases and the animal is still free. Shotgun for a fly; subtlety it isn't. What a waste of moneyResponse From Safer Brand®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. We apologize for this experience and are happy to assist. This trap is ideal for very small sized rodents such as mice, shrews, and voles. For slightly larger rodents, such as squirrels and chipmunks, we recommend our Havahart® Small 2-Door Animal Trap (model 1025).
When trapping agile animals such as a chipmunk, it is recommended to tie the bait to the trap or dig a small hole underneath the trap and place the bait inside. This will cause the animal to work harder to access the bait and remain in the trap longer, increasing the chances of a successful catch.
We hope this information is of help. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any additional questions.
Review RateHit or miss
Poor construction with the set rods. Bends were not correct and very difficult to get a round bar to stay set. It needs a partial flat spot. The instructions did not match the actual unit thus that's probably why so many reviews complain about them Once I bent the bars I was able to set it, but only inside as any wind would trigger it The good side is I caught a couple of mice but I also was able to check the trap within an hour. When I had to leave it over night the mice figured out how to escape though the cracks. Thus only 3 stars as the construction and directions along with the escapability factor makes these a hit or miss item
Review RateSensitive Trigger But Works Well
I got the 2 Door Small Trap several months ago and after I tried another brand trap (that supposedly you do not need bait, you just wind it up and the trap is supposed to be able to hold several mice) did not work I tried the Havahart trap. I used a pistachio as bait and after several attempts, Iwas able to secure it on the Trigger. The Trigger mechanism is real sensitive and a pain to set but the main problem is that the bait kept falling off until I was able to secure the bait properly. After about two hours I saw that the one door was closed. The first thought that came to my mind was the door closed on it's own due to the sensitivity of the Trigger. When I went over to take a closer look , I saw a mouse inside
Review RateOnly trap that works 100% of the time and is humane 100% of the time.
These traps are amazing. I had a WTH? moment when I went to set up the catch mechanism, but it is actually extremely easy to use and works every single time it's set. I had tried another brand live trap that had what I thought was an excellent design. Somehow, after tripping the mechanism the mice were still able to escape. Not so with the Havahart. If it's sprung, the mouse is inside. Fantastic live traps!
Review RateThe trap of choice for me!Since we purchased this trap, we have humanely caught two mice. It really was nice to be able to let them go instead of having to empty a dead mouse out of a snap trap (or having the trap snap while relaxing in the living room). This trap is a little tricky to set, but my husband figured it out and we put it to use right away. Peanut butter was the offering and lured them in nicely.
Review RateI would like to upgrade a previous negitive reviewI recently was upset with receiving an email to review a product I never received. After contacting Havahart that my package was not delivered to my home but handed off to the local post office via "SurePost" but the site did not allow a PO Box. They resent my order and it was delivered in 2 days to my home. I still need to put the live traps out but I'm very impressed with their customer service.
Review RateThe bestI've used these traps since I was a kid and 40 yrs later they're still the best
