- Barbell Warranty and Care Information
Guidelines to Reduce Likelihood of Barbell Damage
It is not recommended to use any bar for rack pulls. Rack pulls increase the bending moment (force) of the bar, this increases the likelihood of lasting damage to a bar.
Dropping a bar onto the spotting arms (safeties) (i.e. when squatting). Although spotting arms or safeties are there for safety, if dropped on to them the bar will experience the same effect as rack pulls. It is recommended using experienced human spotters, both for safety, and it lessens the need of safeties during lifts.
We never recommend dropping the bars from a height, they should be lowered to the ground in a controlled manner to avoid any unnecessary forces on the bars
When doing any overhead work, always use top quality rubber bumper plates in good condition and only on gym specific flooring of 25mm (i.e. no stable. Cow matting). Use of metal plates or improper flooring will almost always cause additional wear to the bars and will void warranty (see warranty section).
Commercial environments increase the damage or deterioration of barbells due to the increased use, because of this it should not be expected that any barbell will last forever under these conditions. It is our advice that barbells under this condition should be replaced regularly.
To avoid rust the chalk should be cleaned out of the knurling daily and the bars should be dried from sweat. It is our recommendation that the bars are re-coated with a protective agent regularly.
Warranty on an Assassin barbell covers against bending of the shaft, and knurling defects.
Barbells are covered for damage during what is considered ‘normal’ usage and within the guidelines as detailed in the terms and conditions.
Any rust or cosmetic blemishes or damage caused by misuse, improper storage or improper care will not be covered by the warranty.
Barbells will be replaced a maximum of one time, if a replacement (or a credit) is issued it will void any further warranties on that item/barbell, or in conjunction with item(s) purchased using the credit.
Warranty is non-transferable.
Bars will be returned to us at the customer’s expense, and will be replaced or repaired upon receipt. Warranty is valid with an order number/receipt for the purchasing customer only, and is non-transferable.
Warranty Will be Void if Any of the following occurs:
Barbells are used with anything other than full rubber bumper plates/appropriate change plates on gym specific rubber matting or platforms of at least 25mm (not stable/cow matting).
Barbells are dropped on pin, safeties, spotter arms, either when using in racks or for rack pulls.
Barbells are left loaded with any plates, however light/small for any length of time.
Barbells are left without care and maintenance.
Barbells are stored on anything but a non-abrasive material such as plastic, rubber or nylon.
- Bumper Plate Warranty
Assassin Bumper Plates come with a 5-year warranty from date of purchase against splitting of the plates.
Warranty does not cover any cosmetic flaws/defects which do not in any way affect the use of the plates. Upon manufacturing there are often ‘seal’ marks/seams which are normal in production and do not affect the performance of the plates.
To qualify for warranty the bumpers must be used on gym specific rubber matting at least 25mm thick impact specific tiles or 20mm multi-layered matting, please clarify if your matting will be covered if you are unsure. An excessive number of smaller plates should never be loaded on the outside of the bumper plates, and this will void the warranty.
The warranty is non-transferable and any returns must be sent back to us at the customer’s expense.
Bumper plates will be replaced a maximum of one time, if a replacement is issued it will void any further warranties on that item/plate.
Outdoor use voids warranty.
