Don't you just hate it when

on Mon Oct 17 2016, 14:35
Dont you just hate it when you buy a new tool and when it arrives it's faulty !!

I bought a new pin remover tool for watch straps which arrived today and as you can see by the photo the pin is bent and can not be straightened also the advert stated 3 extra pins would come with the tool but mine just came with the one faulty one.

Email sent off to seller lets see what their reply is

i hope you sent them a pic as well, if they are chinese sellers they will send you another, i find them mostly very easy to deal with, but push come to shove just claim the cost back through paypal/ebay
disappointing when faulty goods turn up though Crying or Very sad

chinese seller, 99% of these tool sellers are, stock is held in the uk or europe and sometimes china......try the seller "redrooster" they are pretty good IMO

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Watch-band-tool-bracelet-link-remover-pin-repair-spare-pins-QUALITY-METAL-TOOL-/191218044296?hash=item2c857bcd88:m:mLmo8pxqYkrxoaGGc658e4g

Found one slightly more than the first but it is sold by redrooster and I have used the before I bought a set of screwdrivers from them . what I like about this tool is the pins are longer so will go right through the Bracelet if needed

This has happened a few times to me- buy something, it doesn't work, get sent a new one or a refund without even asking. Even happened with Music Magpie- we bought a DVD set of Blue Planet- it arrived with 2 x disc 4, but no disc 3. Refund straight away, don't bother sending it back. Bought a replacement. Seems a waste, as all we needed was disc 3!!
