 Meade Binocular Limited Warranty

Every Meade binocular is warranted by Meade Instruments Corporation ("Meade") to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for a period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase in the U.S.A. and Canada. Meade will repair or replace the product, or part thereof, found upon inspection by Meade to be defective, provided the defective part or product is returned to Meade, freight prepaid, with proof of purchase. This warranty applies to the original purchaser only and is non-transferable. Meade products purchased outside North America are not included in this warranty, but are covered under separate warranties issued by Meade International Distributors.

RGA Number Required: Prior to the return of any product or part, a Return Goods Authorization (RGA) number must be obtained from Meade by writing, or by calling (949) 451-1450. Each returned part or product must include a written statement detailing the nature of the claimed defect, as well as the owner's name, address, and phone number.

This warranty is not valid in cases where the product has been abused or mishandled, where unauthorized repairs have been attempted or performed, or where depreciation of the product is due to normal wear-and-tear. Meade specifically disclaims special, indirect, or consequential damages or lost profit, which may result from a breach of this warranty. Any implied warranties which cannot be disclaimed are hereby limited to a term of one year from the date of original retail purchase.

This warranty gives you specific rights. You may have other rights which vary from state to state. Meade reserves the right to change product specifications or to discontinue productions without prior notice. This warranty supersedes all previous Meade binocular warranties.

 Repair of Meade Binoculars in The U.S.A.

In the event that your Meade binocular requires servicing, please follow this procedure:

  • Carefully package your binocular to avoid shipping damage; use a thick-walled carton box for mailing.

  • Enclose a written statement detailing the exact nature of the service needed. Be sure to include your name, address, plus daytime and evening telephone numbers.

  • Enclose $20.00 to cover handling and return-shipping, by check or money order payable to "Meade Instruments." Warranty servicing will not be performed without receipt of this handling and shipping charge. Non-warranty repairs may entail additional charges which will be confirmed with you before any binocular repairs are initiated.

  • Insure the package and send your binocular, freight prepaid, to:
