Vector® KGM’s Famous No Proof Warranty

All Vector lighters are backed up by Vector-KGM’s famous No Proof Warranty.  No Proof Warranty means just that.   You are not required to provide a proof of purchase in order to receive warranty service on any malfunctioning Vector lighters.   It’s a hassle free, no questions asked, warranty service program.   It’s Vector-KGM’s unique way of offering a lifetime warranty service commitment to its customers.   Vector-KGM is the last remaining company with an actual in-house warranty service dept. with actual lighter technicians who can perform repair services on the lighters.   Our industry leading turn-around time of 1-2 weeks truly sets Vector-KGM apart from the other so-called lighter companies without any in-house QC and service departments.


 What’s Covered Under No Proof Warranty?

All Vector® lighters and torches (lighters from hereafter).   Yes, we will even service the ones that are missing few parts of the lighters, but do not expect us service the ones that are in multiple pieces.   If all moving parts of the lighters are intact, we will service the lighters regardless of the causes of malfunctioning (e.g., dropped on concrete floor, used inferior butane to refill, not used for years, etc). Mutilated lighters (missing more than 2 broken pieces) automatically void warranty.


How to Properly Send Lighters Back for Service?

  1. Do not send the lighter inside of its original packaging box (remove the tin or paper box). The original packaging box will not be returned to you if you send it in.
  2. Wrap your lighter within a soft paper tissue so that the outer surface doesn’t scratch during transit.
  3. Enclose lighter(s) in a properly padded envelope or ask a Vector® Retail Dealer for a service envelope.
  4. Clearly print your name, desired return address, email address and telephone number at which you can be reached. Your complete contact information must be included with your lighter(s).
  5. Insure package with carrier to cover your property in the event of property loss during shipping. Vector® KGM is not liable for lighters lost in transit.
  6. Include a $5.00 check or money order for all pocket size lighters & table top torches including Nitro, Hyper, & Minitro for return shipping charges; $10.00 for Tri-pump & Megapump. You can also pay by credit cards. If paying by credit cards, be sure to include:
