Return Instructions
All product returns require a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number which can be obtained from Patton or through your authorized reseller, if applicable.

  1. Request an RMA by one of these three methods:
  2. Provide the following information:
    • Your name, company name, telephone and fax numbers and email address
    • Proof of purchase (serial number of the product to be returned)
    • Reason for the product return
    • Your return shipping address
    Once a Patton Technical Support Engineer verifies you have a hardware problem that requires you to return your product, you will be provide with an RMA number. A sales receipt may be required to verify the original retail purchase. The warranty commences on the day of shipment to the end customer. Verifiable proof of this date of shipment and the related serial number has to be presented. If such proof is not available or lacks plausibility, the warranty commences on the date of shipment from Patton.
  3. RMA numbers are valid for thirty (30) days and are associated with a product serial number. RMA numbers older than ten (10) days need to be revalidated by calling the Patton Support Team before the product is returned. Once an RMA number has been issued, a confirmation email or fax will be sent to you detailing the RMA number, product authorized for return, together with shipping instructions. Client is responsible for the risk of loss and shipping and handling fees when returning products.
  4. It is preferable that the original packaging, including any anti-static and foam wrapping be used on all returned product. Should the original product packaging not be available, then adequate packaging should be used taking into account the method of shipment of the returned product. You are responsible for delivering the product to Patton safely and undamaged.
  5. The RMA number should be clearly marked on all returned product, boxes, packages and accompanying paperwork. RMAs received by Patton that are not clearly marked may experience processing delays.
  6. We recommend that all returned products be insured and that a tracking number be obtained for the shipment. To speed up the RMA procedure, the tracking number should be sent to the Patton Support Team as soon as the package is shipped.
  7. Repairs are generally completed in less than two weeks. Repaired, replaced or exchanged product are warranted for a period of three (3) months from the date the repaired, exchanged or replaced product is shipped by Patton, or the remainder of the original warranty, whichever is longer.
