Subject to Yakima’s inspection of the product, Yakima will remedy defects in materials and/or workmanship by repairing or replacing, at Yakima’s option, the defective product without charge for parts or labour, subject to the limitations and exclusions described in this warranty. Yakima may elect, at its option, not to repair or replace a defective product, in which case Yakima will issue to the original retail purchaser, at Yakima’s option, either a refund equal to the purchase price paid for the product, or a credit to be used toward the purchase of new Yakima products or rack components.
You can only make claims under this guarantee if warranty services are requested and the Yakima product is presented together with the original invoice or receipt or other proof.
This warranty does not cover problems caused by normal wear and tear (including, but not limited to, scratches, dents, tears, or aesthetic oxidation of surfaces, or natural breakdown of colours and materials over extended time and use), commercial use, unlawful vehicle operation, damage resulting from improperly secured cargo, accidents, breakdown of the vehicle on which the Yakima product was installed or modifications or repairs not performed or authorized by Yakima.

Yakima does not cover cost for maintenance, removal or assembly costs of the Yakima product.
Yakima does not cover damage caused by lightning, water, fire, force majeure, war, riots or other causes that are beyond the control of Yakima.

The Yakima dealer will give the original retail purchaser instructions on how to proceed. If the original retail purchaser is unable to contact the Yakima dealer or the dealer is not able to remedy the defect, the original retail purchaser should contact the in country authorised distributor.
