Thumbs up Home Depot Husky Warranty

So the other day I was using a husky ratchet and the ratcheting mechanism broke on me. Knowing that husky has a lifetime warranty I decided to try and take it back to Home Depot. I wasn't sure exactly how it was going to play out as I've heard horror stories about Home Depot requiring receipts, trying to get out of the warranty, and etc.

My experience was smooth as butter. I went to the return section, told them I would like to return or exchange the ratchet. They asked why, I simply said it doesn't work anymore. The lady played with it for a few seconds, then went and grabbed me a brand new ratchet still in retail packaging. Didn't ask me any questions, didn't even make me sign a receipt or anything. All and all, I'm impressed.

What was your experience?

Indeed. However, it doesn't necessarily speak to the quality of Husky tools as I had to use my Craftsman ratchet to finish the job.

I work at the home depot and the store i work at we never argue or try to get out of replacing a husky product i just replace it cause that is what is right. Although we do not take in craftsman stuff... but different districts and managers do different things. (plus if you just throw a little fit they will give you anything ive seen customers do some messed up stuff to get stuff for free)
