Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TBird It works
Put it out six times and caught six raccoons. Lined our suv with a tarp and easily transported each one to a new home, far away from us. They apparently really like marshmallows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RRLCC Three Raccoons in as many days
This large trap works exactly as described. Two suggestions to Havahart: (1) enlarge the protective plate on top of the trap. The animals become a bit frisky and tend to poke through the trap (2) add a thin rope to the release hook as part of the package. It works much better than gripping the hook by hand. (I bought a smaller, collapsible Havahart first with easy release. First raccoon broke the back out and the second rolled the trap and activated the "easy release".) My current, heavy-duty trap is what one needs for smart raccoons.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Munibill Workable, could use some tweaking.
Received and set it hoping to catch a destructive Raccoon. .. Instead caught a large Oppossom. Thr large Havaheart worked but could use a better mechanism (instead of a small clip) to hold the exit door open ... like a 18" rod to slide thru the cage beneath the open door. Also, the handle is a tad wimpy as well as uncomfortable for a cage of this weight and size. You should wear gloves for comfort. Actually, two well-spaced handles would be nice for lifting and sliding the loaded trap into a vehicle. Seller should try it with the single handle and with aL20# animal inside.
The instructions are not current with changes you have made. Customers can figure it out okay, BUT its always an irritant when instructions are obsolete. Also, don't spend so much money on shipping boxes. The nice artwork adds nothing for a trap customer. I like tour products and have completely controlled a squirrel population, saving my several fruit crops for 2 years now. Y

The trap arrived and we set it out the next day. One ground hog capture in one night.

I had racoons living under my shed... I knew about Havahart traps and purchased the XL 1-Door Trap... The results are obvious....... Could not be happier....

Product does work; however, right out of the box a black, circular tab at the end of the door fell off. This does not effect how the trap works. also, I have noticed that the floor trap mechanism, the tension across the piece is not uniform. As a result, the trap door is tripped easier on one side of the floor mechanism than on the other side.
