Craftsman Hand Tool
SEARS PRODUCT WARRANTY TO COMPLY WITH FTC RULES EFFECTIVE 12/31/76
Product: Craftsman Hand Tool
Warranty: FULL UNLIMITED WARRANTY ON CRAFTSMAN HAND TOOL
If this Craftsman Hand Tool ever fails to give complete satisfaction,

rights which vary from state to state.

Unfortunately, we do not have a document that lists the specific
warranties of all Craftsman tools. However, we do have databases that do
list the specific warranties of the tools on an individual basis.
A general list of Craftsman tools that are covered by the lifetime
warranty would include: ratchets, sockets, wrenches, screwdrivers and
hammers. Some tools that are not covered by the lifetime warranty (even
though they are Craftsman branded) are: taps, dies, saw blades, drill bits
and torque wrenches.
The guarantee is not limited to the original owner. Sears does not require
a sales receipt for lifetime guaranteed hand tool.
Thank you for choosing Sears to help you create the good life.
