Home Depot’s salesmen push their housebrand “Ridgid”” power tools by touting the “”Lifetime Warranty””

but they never warn you that you must rush home and go on line and register the purchase on the Ridgid web site to get that warranty. I have a kit full of their 12V rechargeble tools

and just use them on small crafts in my garage. And I have bought 4 extra batteries

and my wife and kids have been giving me new accessories to add to the kit for Christmas and Fathers Day gifts

thereby inadvertantly trapping me to stay with this set that I should have just thrown away. They look brand spanking new and are hardly used. But it seems that every time I go to use the tools
