Defense Merchandise offers a limited warranty on all products.
Some products have manufacturer’s warranties that are much longer. Products with expiration dates, like pepper spray, have a warranty that is governed by the expiration date.
Unless otherwise specified on our product details page, Defense Merchandise will repair its products with new or rebuilt parts, free of charge, in the U.S.A. for 90 days from the date of original purchase in the event of a defect in materials or workmanship. Product must be shipped back to Defense Merchandise for repair in original packing. Shipping charges for all returns are at the expense of the customer. This warranty is extended only to the original purchaser. A purchase receipt or other proof of date of original purchase will be required before warranty performance is rendered. We email all customers an invoice and this is sufficient documentation to submit for warranty coverage.
This warranty only covers failures due to defects in materials or workmanship, which occur during normal use. It does not cover damage which occurs in shipment (covered separately) or failures which are caused by products not supplied by Defense Merchandise or failures which result from accident, misuse, abuse, neglect, mishandling, misapplication, alteration, modification, or commercial use of the product, or service by anyone other than Defense Merchandise, or damage that is attributable to acts of God.
