    Default Lifetime warranty and receipt

    Good day all
    I'm a big supporter of a tool brand that sells all its products with a lifetime warranty.
    I want to replace a 1/4 " ratchet thats faulty and the first thing the supplier wants is a receipt from when it was purchased. It was a gift, I don't have a receipt.
    My 'brits' is not that bad, but here I was thinking lifetime means forever.

    What is the brand? Is the supplier the importer or just your local Midas behind the counter guy?

    Good tool brands don't ask for the receipt.

    Or the guy wasn't lus for the paper work.

    Here where I am Gedore has that reputation.
    For me it's a tool that you throw away when it breaks.

    If you manage to break a decent branded tool you were using the wrong tool for the job.

    I have never had that problem with Gedore. Although some have tried. If the person behind the counter starts with nonsense, i tell them to make a sexual exit and ask for the manager. It usually gets sorted very quickly.

    Firstly I don't have the time for that.
    Secondly I have been told that I can be extremely untactfull and difficult.

    So I just get a better tool.
    I am willing to pay.

    I have had that with Snap On, tried all sorts of tricks asking if I was the first owner and insisting on an invoice.......... they saw the err in their ways and I exited with a new 1/4" ratchet..... to their relief. If being a gentleman is take as being a softie forget the gentleman thing and become a bast..

    Your Snap-On merch is a d!ck.
    I have tools repaired mahala that the dealer I use KNOWS I never bought, but they are Snap-On and he honours the warranty, regardless.

    On the way down to the Cape for FIL's funeral a month ago I realized I had left the power-bar, 27 socket and short extension I use to change the Defender's wheels at home.
    A mate in Worcester loaned me an extension and socket.
    A mate in Caledon gave me a broken Midas-branded power-bar and told me one can buy a replacement "swing-tip" (?) at Midas.

    Walked into Gansbaai's Midas (never been in there before) and walked out with a brand new power-bar 2 minutes later: "I can't sell you a "tip" Oom, but you do get a new power-bar - it has a lifetime guarantee"...
