Warranty Policy

Outdoor Connection Warranty

Outdoor Connection will always try to help with any problems with any of our Outdoor Connection branded products. However, the product must meet the warranty conditions to obtain full warranty service.

Where to obtain Warranty Service
In the first instance contact Outdoor Connection using our Online Warranty Claim form. Outdoor Connection may direct the claim to be handled through the original place of purchase of the product. Subject to consumer laws that apply in your jurisdiction, the cost of returning the goods to the original place of purchase, including incidental costs such as packing, transport and insurance, is the responsibility of the purchaser.

Outdoor Connection Warranty
Outdoor Connection Products carry a limited warranty of 1 to 5 years depending on the product. The Warranty covers defects in material and workmanship. Should a product be found to be defective during the warranty period Outdoor Connection, at its discretion, will repair or replace the product or the parts of the product that have been found to be defective. If the product has been superseded or is not available for any reason, Outdoor Connection will replace the defective product with one of similar specification and quality.
The warranty is not transferable and is valid only for the original purchaser. Proof of purchase is required showing the date of original purchase.
Any furtherance of this warranty, indicated or implied by a retailer, is not covered by this Outdoor Connection warranty.

Australian Consumer Law
Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are
entitled to a replacement or a refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably
foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail

Outdoor Connection Warranty benefits and conditions of warranty do not affect a consumer’s statutory
rights under Australian Consumer Law or, if in New Zealand, then New Zealand Consumer Law.

Faulty goods returns
In the unlikely event that a product you have purchased from Outdoor Connection NZ is or becomes
faulty, we are committed to meeting our obligations under the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees
Act 1993 (CGA).


Consumer Guarantees Act 1993
The New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act 1993, is legislation that outlines the guarantees and rights of both the seller and consumer for products and services sold.

  • Under the CGA, products sold by us must be safe, of acceptable quality, fit for the purpose they have been purchased for, match the description given, match the sample or demonstration model and be of acceptable condition when received by you;

Minor Fault
