About Our Policy
Sandbox Helmets warrants its products to be free of manufacturing defects for one (1) year from the date of purchase. Our commitment to you is that we want you to be riding as much as possible and you can't do that if you're not protected! If your gear has failed you then we will do our best to get you back out as quickly as possible. Check out our full guidelines below and make sure you have familiarized yourself with them before starting a warranty claim.
Please read the following questions. If you answer yes to all of these then proceed to Step 2.

- Was the product purchased from an authorized Sandbox dealer or direct from our online store?
- Do you have a copy of your receipt, order confirmation, sales receipt or other proof of purchase?
- Does the damage or fault appear to be the result of or attributable to defective materials or poor workmanship?
If you answered yes to all of the above questions proceed to Step 2. If you didn't then please Email Us and we will see what we can do to help.
If your product was purchased from an authorized Sandbox dealer then please return your product to them to begin a warranty claim.

Wait for a response from our customer service team.
We aim to respond to all warranty claims as quickly as possible but during busy periods response times may be slower.

If for any reason we require more information we will let you know.
Not all warranty claims can be approved by email. Sometimes we will require the product to be returned for an inspection. If this is the case we will provide full instructions by email.
