If the return item has been damaged or altered, the full charge for the product may be assessed at the sole discretion of Metrex Research, LLC.

  1. Before returning any product, you must obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. No returns, trial or warranty exchanges will be accepted without a RMA number. Please have your invoice number available when calling for a RMA number. This information can be found on your original packing list.

It will be the responsibility of the purchaser to arrange for the product to be returned to the purchaser for appropriate cleaning and sanitation, and the purchaser shall be responsible for all shipping charges.
