There are some things to cnsider regarding a "Lifetime Warranty."

August 10, 2018 10:09AM avatar
First thing is that it only applies to the original purchaser who registers the unit.

But there have been several manufacturers who have offered a 'Lifetime Warranty' and there are certain strings attached, such as:

The 'Lifetime Warranty' might only exist as long as the company is in business but has changed ownership and the new owner doesn't offer or recognize a Lifetime Warranty. One example is Bounty Hunter which, at one time, offered a Lifetime Warranty, but that company name and business practice has changed hands, and policies, several times.

A company simply goes defunct and that's the end of a 'Lifetime Warranty' such as what happened with D-Tex, Gold Mountain Technologies and a few others who, for a brief time, offered a 'Lifetime Warranty.'

Personally, I don't care if a company offers a 1 yr., 2 yr., 5 yr. or Lifetime Warranty as long as the detectors work, and work well, and hold up as they are supposed to. They are an electronic devoice and shouldn't be tossed around and abused because mistreatment can also void and perceived 'Lifetime' or other Warranty.

I have had a few Tesoro's that, brand new in the box, had some defects of failures to perform well. That's to be expected from any manufacturer, but overall .... My Tesoro's Work Fine and I don't concern myself about a need for any warranty service. Tesoro's have been very good in that respect. Simple, Functional, and they Perform well and very seldom need any attention.
