** Winged tipped elevators and luxators are only guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship, however, increasing numbers of these instruments are returned broken at the tips and bent, due to improper use. Please note, winged tipped elevators and fine-tipped luxators are not to be used for tooth leverage/elevation under any circumstances, the fine tips are only designed to separate ligaments/tissue away from the tooth roots. These instruments will bend and break if used for tooth leverage/elevation and those that show evidence of use outside of the instrument design limitations are not eligible for warranty replacement.

**Serra (modified and regular, with and without, ratchet) And Bertschy emasculators are covered under warranty for three years and must ALWAYS be completely disassembled and cleaned before autoclaving. It is also imperative to soak these instruments, disassembled, quickly after being exposed to blood. Failure to follow proper cleaning and autoclaving voids the warranty on emasculators ""
 
The Liability of Concord Veterinary Supply is limited to the repair and/or replacement of the defective instrument.
