Even though the item does not have to be purchased from a GEARS store, Original proof of purchase is always required for Warranty, regardless of the term of Warranty.

Warranties are against Manufacturer Defects — best rule of thumb, “If An Outside Force Acted On It, It Is NOT Warranty”. Warranties are non-transferable, any online secondary or used purchases, from sites such as eBay, will void any warranty a product may have had.
