Lifetime & Limited Warranties

Warranty policy for implant products

Dangerous Things offers two basic types of implants. The first type are the x-series line, which are injectable glass tube style implants that come pre-loaded inside injector assemblies. This is the same type of design that animal implants have been using for decades. It is “tried and true” as they say, and since these devices come pre-loaded inside sterilized injector assemblies, the installation procedure is extremely straightforward. The other type of implantable devices we sell are flex line implants, which are flat thin devices encapsulated inside a flexible biopolymer resin. They require special procedures to install, depending on their shape and size. Due to the vastly different designs of these products, their production processes, and the installation procedures required, each type has a specific warranty policy.

x-series warranty

Our x-series implantable products carry a limited lifetime warranty. The terms of our x-series warranty covers manufacturing defects for the life of the product line. As long as we are still producing the product and it is still in stock (we have inventory), any failure of the product due to manufacturing defect will entitle you to a free replacement. Failure due to damage including mishandling, programming errors, data tearing, handling with forceps or any tooling, personal injury, etc. is not part of the warranty but will be considered on a case by case basis.

flex warranty

Flex products are somewhat difficult to cover with a warranty due to the ease with which they can be damaged by the customer or an untrained installer. Flex products cannot be autoclaved, which is standard procedure for most professional body modification artists, body piercing professionals, and even small general practice medical doctors with simple in-office surgery suites. Processing a flex device in an autoclave will fundamentally damage the biopolymer and allow moisture to creep in to damage the internal electronics over time. Additionally, the polymer coating is very robust, but very thin. If the flex device is handled with tooling such as forceps or tweezers or any tooling other than a sterile gloved hand, it could be punctured or damaged in such a way as to allow moisture to infiltrate over time and damage the internal encapsulated electronics.

As such, flex products carry a 1 year limited warranty, under the condition that the installation must be done by a professional and the installation procedure must be recorded in one single or multiple smaller videos which show;

1) the flex device being removed from the vial, pouch, or polymer bag on to the sterile field.
2) the flex device being picked up and installed by the installer into the incision without tools.

Only these elements must be shown. You do not need to record or show the installer’s name, face, location, procedure prep, etc., only the handling of the flex device from shipping condition to sterile field and the installation from sterile field to incision must be shown. Audio is not necessary to record or provide either. Should a flex device fail to work due to manufacturing defect, and videos of the installation can be provided, you will be entitled to a free replacement. Failure due to damage including mishandling, programming errors, data tearing, handling with forceps or any tooling, personal injury, etc. is not part of the warranty but will be considered on a case by case basis.
