How To Claim Craftsman Tools Lifetime Warranty by Yourself

Once your Craftsman tool or piece of equipment breaks down, you can file a warranty claim by visiting the nearest Sears department store. Here are the steps you should follow:

  1. Go to the official Sears website and select the Locations tab
  2. Choose your state and find the nearest Sears department store
  3. Bring the faulty item to the chosen shop and explain that you wish to claim a full/lifetime warranty for the product in question
  4. Wait for the shop assistant to examine the damage

Depending on the type of failure, you may be entitled to a repair or replacement of the damaged item. Should your piece of gear qualify for repair, Sears will send it to the repair center and let you know once they fix it. In case of irreparable damage, you will get a brand new product on the spot, given that it’s in stock at the moment.

Do You Need Proof of Purchase To File a Warranty Claim for Craftsman?

If you are trying to repair a product covered by a full lifetime warranty, you won’t need to bring the receipt with you. This doesn’t apply to the items under a limited lifetime warranty, for which you would need a valid proof of purchase in case of any repair request.
