The Warranty Program is easy to use and designed to be as seamless as possible for the soldier. The
program is predicated on a one-for-one tool exchange with the OEM tool vendors. The OEMs provide
replacement tools upfront and the broken or unserviceable tool is returned to them to complete the
warranty process. RIA is required to send unserviceable tools back to the OEMs to receive credit.
a. Contact Scott Forsberg with list of tools and provide required information.
b. Warranty process with OEM is exercised.
c. Replacement tool is sent to soldier.
d. Soldier sends unserviceable tool to Ms. Worrell to complete the process.
RIA cannot always get the tools required/ordered. They will attempt to replace or find a
tool that is equivalent from another vendor. RIA will make every attempt to obtain the tool
ordered. Some tool vendors may have long lead times for filling orders. RIA shall
coordinate with tool vendors to resolve any issues.
Ship all unserviceable tools to the address listed below.
