You can pack and send your return in just a few simple steps:
1. Visit our Returns Section and obtain a return mailing label and return mailing authorization number.
2. Pack the items and write the RMA number in the box provided on the sales receipt and securely place them in a box or the package used to deliver the item. (If you do not have the sales receipt you may use a paper with your name, address and RMA number.)
3. Secure the return mailing label to the outside of the box (clear tape is usually best).
4. Drop your return anywhere in the U.S. Mail – in your mailbox, at work, or at a Post Office without waiting in line.
