I just bought a Kobalt breaker bar from Lowes. I needed a breaker bar and went to Sears and didn't really like the Craftsman one they had and wasn't sure how the quality of the Companion or whatever brand they sell thats also their own brand was. It was only $12 so I almost bought it but decided to go check at Lowes too. Well they had a Kobalt for $25 that I liked so I got that. I was thinking the only nice thing about Sears was the lifetime warrenty. I've had a few Kobalt tools but not many but have been happy with what I have had. Well I noticed when I got home it said on the package Hassle Free Lifetime Warrenty. I hadn't paid attention to this in the store so I got to wondering. Will Lowes just exchange it for you or do you send it off or how does it work? I just wondered if anyone had to exchange a Kobalt tool and how it worked.
