Conditions of sale
EasyWean Pty Ltd accepts no responsibility for any loss or damages, of any nature whatsoever, whether incidental or consequential, incurred by the purchase and use of EasyWean® products.
Warranty & Returns
At EasyWean® we pride ourselves on the high quality of our EasyWean® noserings and the QA processes we have in place. We expect our EasyWean® noserings should serve you well and have a good life span.
If you are unsure of the fitting of our EasyWean® noserings or how to use a particular item – please contact us for clarification before using them. We are only too happy to assist.
As we have no control over how you fit or choose to use our EasyWean® noserings or how your animal may roll, itch, snare, rub and otherwise try to remove our EasyWean® noserings it is your responsibility to insure you are satisfied with the quality and fitness of purpose for the EasyWean® noserings you have purchased before using them. We ask that you check your EasyWean® noserings carefully, before using them, to satisfy yourself that they are of high quality and free from any manufacturing defects, which may shorten the expected life of your purchase. This insures that if our EasyWean® noserings are damaged sooner than expected you can be satisfied they were sound to begin with.
If you find a fault or an issue with your EasyWean® nosering, please contact us before using. We will happily replace any EasyWean® nosering with a demonstrable manufacturing fault, before the item is used – it’s very hard to identify what fault an EasyWean® nosering may have had after your animal has destroyed or used it.
Before you fit the EasyWean® nosering for the first time, and within 72 hours of receipt, if you have any doubt about the fit, sizing, quality or its suitability for the task you have intended – please contact us to discuss.
Cattle are large, unpredictable and strong animals and can easily damage an item in the first few days as they can 12 months later. We will not honour replacements for any item that has been destroyed after use. EasyWean® accepts no liability for loss, damage, injury or death or consequential loss to any person or animal resulting from the use or misuse, or incorrect fitting or failure of any of our EasyWean® noserings.
EasyWean® policy on broken noserings
Product material: EasyWean® is committed to producing a high quality and highly effective product. Our EasyWean® noserings are made out of acetyl. Acetyl is used because it holds its memory better than any other plastic. When the nut/bolt is tightened the EasyWean® nosering will try to return to its original shape. This tension in the plastic acts as a lock nut preventing the nut/bolt from coming undone. This is very important. In addition, acetyl is reasonably flexible and can absorb a great deal of shock and weathering. But it is plastic and therefore not infallible. We have strengthened the design to prevent breakages as much as possible but acetyl will shatter under extreme pressure.
Wear and tear: Some EasyWean® noserings do become more brittle than others on the shelf and therefore can break easier. Such breakages only occur in the very early stages of handling and fitting. In addition, plastic does become more brittle in cold weather, and over time will also be affected by heat. This weathering, we feel, is within the normal bounds of wear and tear.
Handling EasyWean® noserings: The majority of breakages are management related. Ideally, EasyWean® noserings should be fitted with the calf restrained in a neck clamp, and then released to graze as soon as possible once the EasyWean® nosering has been fitted. This will minimize the number of breakages. Similarly, when the EasyWean® noserings are being removed the animals need to be handled carefully as the potential for breakages is higher when the animals are confined.
Replacement Policy: EasyWean® is committed to producing a high quality and highly effective product, but we cannot be held responsible for management related breakages. We are, however, willing to assist EasyWean® nosering users by replacing broken EasyWean® noserings that are returned to us, at a discounted price. We reserve the right to determine the discounted price.
