literature by the term “Stock”. Normally stocked products in their new,
originally sealed packaging may be returned for full credit. US Breaker
may, at its discretion, recover their shipping and handling costs for items
shipped free of charge.
Non-stock Components – Non-stock components include individual components that
are on our website and/ or literature where availability is noted as other that
“stock” (eg. call us or non-stock). Non-stock and "call us" products are subject to a 25% restocking fee.
Modified Products – US breaker sometimes modifies a product to meet our customer
needs. This pertains to any products that are changed prior to shipping,
including but not limited to the addition of accessories or other modifications.

make price adjustments in accordance with unknown price increases. However, we
