Bells of Steel warrants the product will be free from defects in material, functionality, and workmanship commencing on the date of purchase and ending at midnight of the last day of the duration specified above. “Lifetime” warranty coverage ends when the product becomes unusable for reasons other than defects in materials or workmanship. The warranty applies only to the original purchaser of the product for so long as the original purchaser owns the product and is non-transferable.
^ Warranty does not apply to barbells that need maintenance.
Disclaimer of Lifetime Limited Warranty
Warranty is void for any of the following reasons: (i) for any product that has been damaged through negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user; or (ii) if the product is abused by repeated impact on a rough, aggregate surface or from slamming the product on the ground from overhead.
Most problems with bars are caused by abuse, and not because of defects in materials or the manufacturing process. Accordingly, Bells of Steel does not warrant against bending of any bar that has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, excessive dropping on concrete or similar surfaces, and similar acts).
