All A.R.E. DoubleCover Units are covered for a period of five (5) years against structural or manufacturing defects. This warranty applies to the unit body, which includes the entire frame, retractable surface, and box housing for the retractable surface.
All other hardware will be covered under standard A.R.E. truck cover warranties:
For the original purchaser, the lock cylinder and lock housing are warranted for three (3) years from your retail date of purchase against failure due to defects in material and workmanship.
Gas props used to assist in opening are covered under a five (5) year limited warranty against failure due to loss of pressure. This warranty does not cover damage due to misuse or neglect. Never wipe the shaft of the props with anything other than a dry soft cloth. Regular operation of the props will actually increase the life by lubricating the seals and shafts.
