THERE ARE A NUMBER OF SELLERS ON EBAY THAT ARE TRYING TO PASS OFF BLUE POINT AS SNAP ON, ALLTHOUGH THEY ARE THE SAME COMPANY THE NEWLY AVAILABLE BLUE POINT SOCKETS, BITS, RATCHETS ETC ARE NOT COVERED BY THE SNAP ON WARRANTY. HENSE WHY THEY SELL WELL ON EBAY, BECAUSE ON THE SNAP ON VAN THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT BUY THEM ARE APPRENTICES WITH NO MONEY, AND PEOPLE THAT SELL THEM ON EBAY.

IF YOU WANT A NEW SNAP ON OR BLUE POINT PRODUCT SPEAK TO A DEALER NOT THE WEBSITE AS THE DEALER PRICE IS USUALLY A LOT CHAPER THAN THE WEBSITE ONE.

SNAP ON AND BLUE POINT CHIESELS HAVE NEVER BEEN COVERED BY WARRANTY.

SOME BLUE POINT ITEMS ARE MADE BY IRWIN, AND ARE CHEAPER TO BUY THAT WAY WITH A LIFETIME WARRANTY.

BLUE POINT PLIERS ARE COVERED BY THE WARRANTY.

SOME BLUE POINT TOOLS ARE COVERED BY THE LIFETIME WARRANTY, THESE ARE USUALLY THE ONES THAT ARE THE SAME ITEM AS SNAP ON BUT DIFFERENT PLACE OF MANUFACTURE I.E THE SNAP ON RATCHET SPANNERS ARE MADE IN THE USA AND THE SAME BLUE POINT ONES ARE MADE IN TAIWAN, THIS SHOCKED A LOT OF MECHANICS I KNOW BUT THEY STILL HAVE THE WARRANTY.

IF YOU ARE UNSURE CONTACT A SNAP ON REPRESENTATIVE AND PICK THIER BRAIN ON IT .

I'VE BEEN IN THE TRADE FOR YEARS AND BROKEN HUNDREDS OF SNAP ON TOOLS MY ADVISE IS PAY THE EXTRA AND AVOID BLUE POINT SOCKETS, TORX BITS, RATCHETS, ALLEN KEYS, FOR SALE ON EBAY ONLY BUY THEM FROM A DEALER THAT WAY IF IT BREAKS AND THEY TOLD YOU ITS UNDER THE USUAL WARRANTY THEY ARE LIABLE, BUT AS WITH  EVERYTHING ON EBAY YOU HAVE NO COME BACK AS NOTHING ON IT IS LEGALLY BINDING IN THE UK, EVEN THOUGH THEY SAY IT IS, SO BE AWARE.

THE SNAP ON WARRANTY ONLY APPLIES TO THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER SO IF YOU BUY IT SECOND HAND ITS NOT COVERED, BUT WHO IS TO KNOW IF YOU BOUGHT IT NEW OR NOT?
