What exactly does the warranty cover?
This warranty covers product material and construction under intended wear and use. Leather belts are meant to be worn to hold your pants and gear. If for example, you spill chlorine, gasoline, paint thinner or other chemicals on your belt it is not designed to stand up to that. Did you dog get ahold of it? Did you drop it in the leaf shredder? Run over it with the lawnmower? That is considered not intended use as our belts aren't designed to stand up to that so that would void the warranty.
I stored my belt int the basement and it's wet and moldy?
If there is one thing Full Grain leather does not like is water. Though you can wear your belt in all weather if it gets repeatedly soaked and dried it will not like that. If your belt has been subjected to excessive water or improper storage in damp areas it voids the warranty.
If I pass my belt along to my Grandchildren is the warranty valid?
Yes. All we need is the original purchasers Name and Address and the warranty covers the belt in the original size purchased.
I lost 100 lbs. Does the warranty cover that?
Congratulations on your weight loss! As much as we would like to we can't be responsible for weight gain or loss. The warranty covers the belt in the original size purchased.
If I punch holes in the belt does it void the warranty?
As long as the holes are punched 3/4" or greater from another hole it does not void the warranty on belts without cores.
On belts with cores such as Steel Core or Kydex reinforced punching holes through the core will void the warranty.
Punching holes closer than 3/4" apart and punching holes through core's on reinforced belts compromises the structural integrity of the belt.
I cut 8" off my belt but should have only cut 6". Is that covered?
