THIRD PARTY CERTIFICATIONS
Any mark, graphic or sticker applied to a Hot Hitter bat indicating that the bat is certified or compliant with the standard of a particular third party governing body (i.e., IBAF, CEB, FFBS) shall only represent that the bat was so certified or compliant at the time of its manufacture and not at any later time. Should a bat that was so certified or compliant at the time of manufacture subsequently lose that certification or compliance, then Hot Hitter may or may not, at its sole option, develop a program for retro-fitting, repairing or replacing the bat and/or providing a voucher to be used toward the purchase of other Hot Hitter products on www.hothittersports.com. In such cases, to the greatest extent permitted under applicable law, the remedies provided under such program shall be the sole and exclusive remedies available to affected bat owners.
MAKING A WARRANTY CLAIM
DO NOT RETURN YOUR BAT TO YOUR SPORTING GOODS DEALER. Visit www.hothittersports.com and fill out the online bat warranty form to receive a warranty claim number and return address.
To complete your warranty claim you must send your bat to the Hot Hitter main office along with a valid proof of purchase. If Hot Hitter determines that your bat is covered by the warranty, then
Hot Hitter will at its sole option and in its sole discretion (1) replace your bat with the same model bat, or (2) replace your bat with a comparable bat should your bat be discontinued or otherwise unavailable, or (3) provide you with a voucher to be used toward the purchase of other Hot Hitter products on www.hothittersports.com. If Hot Hitter determines that your bat is not covered by this limited warranty, then we will return your bat to you. Note - A replacement bat does not start a new 30-day Warranty Period.
Note - Hot Hitter reserves the right to refuse warranty service to any person who, in Hot Hitter’s sole discretion, abuses its products or warranty policy.
WOOD BAT CARE INSTRUCTIONS
This bat requires special care, as it consists of carefully selected timber to enhance performance. Please store in a cool, dry place. Keep your bat out of places with excess moisture or extreme temperatures. Store your bat in a vertical position with the handle up. High compression balls may shorten the life of your bat, as well as team usage situations. Do not hit the bat against metal cleats, rocks or anything other than regulation game balls as this will damage your bat and void your warranty. DO NOT use solvents or any ammonia-based products to clean your bat.
