ya i know thats how it was for the LONGEST time but i heard that like a yr ago when kmart bought sears they did away with there lifetime warrenty... im not 100% sure on this... im to lazy to drive down to the mall (main reason right there) and find out...
We’d just like to make a quick comment regarding the “rumor” that goes around every so often regarding changes in the Craftsman warranty. We pretty regularly receive emails from readers relating Craftsman warranty experiences and asking about changes in the warranty, and we’ve recently seen some mention of it again on the web. It’* sort of funny to us that most bloggers seem to a) hear the rumor and worry, then b) call up Sears PR and ask if the warranty is going away.
As they’ll tell you — it’* not. It’* very unlikely that Sears will ever change or remove the Craftsman lifetime warranty.
However, “Is the warranty going away?” isn’t really the question we (as toolaholics) should be asking. Here’* what the warranty actually says, by the way:
Craftsman hand tools are guaranteed forever. If any Craftsman hand tool ever fails to give complete satisfaction, return it to Sears for free repair or replacement. This warranty gives you specific rights and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Other Craftsman tools are covered by limited warranties.
CRAFTSMAN® mechanics tools and CRAFTSMAN® hand tools have a Lifetime Warranty… they are guaranteed forever …unconditionally, no questions asked. If one should ever fail to give you complete satisfaction, Sears will replace it, free of charge.*
