Never had a problem with returns to HF. Ususualy have my receipt though. I ususualy keep my reciepts on the corner of the work bench till it gets cleaned. That means anywehre from a week to a year. Ususualy when I get a HF tool it is for a specific job. I will for sure keep the reciept till the job is done.

Buy real tools and quit whining. Just man up, if the broken handle hurts your widdle hand, wear a glove.

First question was When did you buy it.....
IT says Lifetime LAdy it doesn't matter.
Now I have to wait till they get more in.

I was told years back when trying to get a ratchet replaced (bonney I think) it's the tools lifetime, not yours, that tool is worn out.

Sorry, the gloves won't fit over all the callouses or maybe it is because I bought them from a guy named OJ. He swore they would fit over anything

I have none and I do have a bunch of their products.
+1 on only things worth the hassle. Like their motorcyle lift, which comes with a 2 year warranty, but again, need receipt. I love dealing with anything Craftsman though, no hassle at all. I brought in a 12 year old pipe wrench that gave up the ghost and they gave me a new one on the spot at a store I didn't even buy the original at. Of course no receipt needed. Gotta love that.

I got my flex-head ratchet out of a hole in the ground. Was leveling an area for an above ground pool, and dug up an ancient looking Craftsman wrench with a seized ratchet head. Took it down to Sears and exchanged it for a refurb.

Or you could just buy tools that won't break and only have to buy them once...



PS Amazon sells a set of Bondhus T handle allen keys for $20-30. They are impeccable -- very heavy and solid, made from solid tool steel with rubber dipped handles and come with a stand. None of that plastic handle shit that always breaks or twists off.

That would be nice, if anyone actually made those.

Matco -Break,
Snap-on- Break
Craftsmen -Break
Green-lee -Break
Etc- Break

I know, I have them all and have broken all of them at some time or other. At some point, that rusted bolt will win.
