The Yale® Lifetime Limited Warranty is one of the most extensive in the industry. It warrants against all defects in workmanship, materials and operation for our Residential line of products (Yale® Design Elements™, Yale® YH Collection™, Yale® New Traditions®, and Interconnected Series) for as long as such lockset is used by the original end user of the product.
YALE RESIDENTIAL SECURITY PRODUCTS, INC. does not warrant defects with respect to any products that we determine were improperly installed or were the consequences of uses for which our products were not designed. This warranty does not cover finish defects caused by the use of paints, solvents, or other chemicals which come in contact with the lockset or resulting because the products were otherwise operated, maintained, repaired or altered improperly or contrary to our applicable instructions. This warranty shall expire at such time as the original end user of the warranted product transfers ownership thereof to any other person.
