Warranty & Returns

Exclusions & Liability

All warranties herein will exclude any items installed incorrectly, misused, neglected, altered, or abused. Any damages, failures, or defective items are subject to the discretion of Birddog Lighting (BDL henceforth). Any linear lighting product that is packaged on a spool must be taken off the spool before applying power. Plugging it in on the spool or reel will void all warranties and may pose a risk of fire. Failure to properly weatherproof your lights will void the warranty. Please be sure to follow any product specific instructions found in or on the packaging, included in the box, or on www.birddoglighting.com.

All warranty claims may be subject to sending picture or video content of the malfunctioning or broken product. Refusal to send picture or videos of the issue may result in denial of warranty request. In some instances, pictures or videos are required in order to successfully process the warranty claim in our system.

BDL shall have no liability whatsoever, in any event, for payment of incidental or consequential costs including, without limitations, costs relating directly or indirectly to installation, transportation, personal injury, property, or any other associated costs that may or may not be related to any product we sell whether deemed working or defective.

*Use of a surge protector is highly recommended. Failure to use one may void the warranty.
