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.


Simple to Operate

You don't have to be an expert to use this Havahart® humane mouse trap. Its design allows trappers of all experience levels to capture, transport, and release small animals with ease.

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.

Not the best trap for small mice. By Lew

This trap works fairly well but not great for smaller mice. I had to tape two quarters to trip pedal in order to make it more sensitive. Also, it seems to work better with only one door open but that involved bending the straight rod up in order to allow the open door to close fully. A one door trap for smaller mice would be ideal.

Worked perfectly By Jim

We had a mouse in our pantry. We didn't want to kill the little guy but wanted him gone. We bought the trap and set it on the pantry floor with peanut butter on a cracker as bait. Sometime during the second night we caught him. He was chilling out still eating his snack when we discovered him. He seemed to enjoy his new little home. I took him to a field a few miles away and turned him loose. No muss, no fuss. Great trap.

excellent By doug

I had 4 traps and just bought 2 more. Work great. I have to slightly flatten the trigger mechanism with a file, or it's a bit tricky to set, other than that they work great, really well built. I've had my originals for 10 years at least.

Great product By Suma

These really work! We catch the mice, who are not harmed. Once you get the knack of setting them, they are easy to use. And the company is very helpful.

Caught my elusive mouse after everything else failed. By Mark

I have had a mouse in my house for several weeks.I tried regular mouse traps ,new mouse traps, bait poison , and sticky pads.We found mouse droppings munched food, and a nest.I finally placed a camera near some peanut butter and chocolate and caught the mouse snacking. After purchasing a X-small 2-door trap I placed the peanut butter on one end that I left closed and caught the mouse within a few days.My wife is very pleased with me!

Great way to catch mice without hurting them. By indnajns

Fantastic trap. I've got the 1020 and have used it for years now. I had to learn the best way to set it ... only use one door, but that's fine. Seems if I set both doors, the mouse would manage to escape. So, I set one door (one side is easier to set than the other), put the peanut butter on the far side of the trip tray, and am pretty much guaranteed to catch a mouse. In fact, one morning I woke to a whole family! Turned out I had caught a pregnant female who gave birth while in the trap. Took them all to the abandoned house across the way (which was probably why I had so many mice to begin with) and let them get on with their lives -- out of my life.

Mr Jingles By Daniel

Caught the mouse in the garage with a small Havahart Trap. That is why they call it Havahart. I don't like killing living creatures. I have the title guy as a pet. He loves his free food and water. And his enclosed sleeping quarters (a small box with soft tissues)........

Amazing and effective By Al

First time I have ever used a trap and cannot be happier with the results! I bought 2 1020 xsmall traps to catch some pesky field mice, in one night I caught 8 And 2 flying squirrels! Traps are easy to set once you get the hang of it. Watching the instructional video also helped. The traps are sensitive however, you can shift the placement of the trey and door levers (slightly offset them on the flat part) to make the trap even more sensitive. Great product, will not but from another brand.

Tips on using these traps By Lynn B.

These are excruciatingly difficult to set. The problem is that in the SIX that I have, the bait pan rod does NOT have a flat side, as it is supposed to. Unlike other Havahart traps, these are made in China, so I think that introduces a problem of quality control. I plan to take a rotary tool with grinding tip to the rods to create flat spots. That said, I caught four mice in 4 days at first. Someone complained about access to the bait pan. I use a plastic knife with peanut butter on the tip, and press it into the notch on the pan.

Response From Safer Brand®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We appreciate the feedback, Lynn. The trigger rods on this trap are not designed with flat spots, and we do not recommend making modifications as this could affect the sensitivity needed to catch mice, shrews, and voles. Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for any assistance needed.
