Dropping and/or knocking dumbbells together is the primary cause of loose heads and bent handles and is considered a misuse of the product. FPD will not warrant or replace dumbbells that exhibit signs of the above. Do not use dumbbells that are becoming loose. 

BARS ** 

Bars typically become bent by leaving weight plates on the bar while the bar is rested on bench uprights after use. This process can occur in just a few hours and is considered misuse. FPD will not warranty or replace bars exhibiting this misuse. Remove plates from bar after each use and store the bar in a vertical holder or flat on the floor, cracked sleeves and loose ends can also result from dropping bar with plates on the floor which is considered misuse and not covered by this warranty.

CARE *** 

  1. Do not drop or tap product together. This will help to avoid loose heads and damage to item finish or item itself. 
  2. After use, wipe your product off with a clean cloth. This will minimize the risk of your products finish from rusting. 
  3. After each use, remove the plates and collars from bars, this will eliminate the probability of a bar from permanently bending. 
  4. Store your product indoors and away from moisture. 
  5. Keep your equipment away from children and pets. Secure the product safely so children or pets cannot harm themselves
