How does the warranty work? Do you have to send back to them in the US, or is there a Canadian address, or depot in the GTA, or does Lowes handle it over the counter? I used to only buy Mastercraft Maximum because of the great over the counter warranty that CT offered, but heard they changed their policy recently. Luckily none of my Maximum tools have failed since.

In-store all you gotta do is hand the tool to the customer service desk they usually just hand you a new one. I didn't need to show a receipt or anything. I don't know how online warranty works as I live 15mins away from a Lowe's store.

Any details on what has changed with CT mastercraft exchange/warranty policy?

Good for home use, but also great for work use. It’s a myth you have to buy expensive tools to get the job done, in most regards.

Nice. I like the cabinet design. I have a large set like this, but it is like a clamshell or suitcase..... so many times I’ve opened it and had the joy of 100 sockets scrambled.

It would be helpful if you stated which store. I tried all 10 listed in the GTA and with every one got "We are unable to process your order due to lack of availability in your area."

This set and others have been on clearance and out of stock since last year.

They really need to remove it from their site.

You used to be able to hand them the broken tool, and grab a replacement off the shelf. If the same tool was no longer available, they let you have an equivalent/newer model. No receipt required. A friend of mine recently needed a replacement and was told he needed the original receipt, which he no longer had. But Canadian Tire is the only place that sells them!

I think it really depends on the franchise, and CSR you get at Customer Service. I tried to return a recalled Mastercraft mitre to one particular location, and the 20 something assistant manager didn't have a clue how to deal with it, and basically told me "Too bad". I called Head Office, and they told me they'd call the store with instructions on how to deal with it. The store owner then called me and said, "I'm trying to figure this out" (he was a new owner). smh

I went to another store and the woman at Customer Service knew how to handle it, because she'd been working there since the '80's.

A pimply face kid at a third location told me he couldn't replace Mastercraft needle nose pliers with a broken tip because "That SKU number isn't in the system anymore"

tl/dr: Find a person who's been working at CT for a long time if you need to do a warranty exchange.

Yep. Worked there. Warranty on tools & car batteries were the most feared. Fiddly stuff that you need to do a few to get the hang of it. Do it wrong and you get feedback from the owner as it could be rejected by corporate. Once you’ve done enough though, they become straightforward enough.
