Surge Protection Product Limited Warranty

FAQ and Procedures for the Limited Warranty Claims

About our products

Surge protectors are designed and manufactured to protect properly connected and grounded electrical equipment against spikes and surges. Once a surge protector absorbs to its capacity, it will no longer provide surge protection. ITW Linx brand surge protectors provide warranty against product defects. See warranty for details. Surge protectors that have been damaged while protecting your connected equipment are not considered defective and therefore are not covered under warranty.

FAQ-Limited Product Warranty Claims

Q: Do I have a Limited product warranty claim?

A: This can only be determined by the warranty department. The warranty department will review the information you supply and contact you within 10 days of receipt of the email or phone call.

Q: How long does the warranty process take?

A: The average turn around time from receipt of the initial email or phone call is 90 days.

Q: Do you cover data loss?

A: Data loss is not covered.

Q: Is lightning damage to the ITW Linx surge protector covered?

A: If your surge protector was hit by lightning and you do not have any connected equipment damage, we are not required to replace the surge protector. The surge protector is designed to protect your connected equipment and will sacrifice itself for your equipment if the lightning hit is severe. If you do have any connected equipment damage, see the Connected Equipment Warranty Claim section on this website.
