ONE-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY & INSURANCE
Covers units purchased as new in United States and Puerto Rico Only
VIZIO warrants for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase to the original purchaser of its
mounting brackets, that the bracket shall be free from defects in assembly, material, or workmanship and
will repair or replace, at its sole discretion, a defective bracket free of charge, provided the bracket is
returned to VIZIO with shipping prepaid by purchaser. Unauthorized service or repairs by anyone other
than VIZIO or a pre-approved repair facility renders this warranty void and shall release VIZIO from any
further responsibility or obligation.
Insurance: VIZIO will repair or replace up to a maximum of $10,000.00, at its option, any component
(television, projector, monitor or screen) which is damaged by a VIZIO bracket’s failure to perform* when
that product is properly installed** for its intended use. This insurance is subject to the limitations and
exclusions set forth herein. VIZIO will repair or replace the damaged television, monitor or screen
(“Components”) at VIZIO’s option, up to an amount equal to the fair market value of the damaged
Components or the original purchase price of the equipment, whichever is less, up to $10,000.00.
Other Terms & Conditions: VIZIO reserves the right to inspect the damaged component, the VIZIO
bracket alleged to have failed, and the site where the damage occurred. Damaged Components and
bracket must remain available for inspection until the claim is finalized. VIZIO may require you to ship, at
your expense, the VIZIO bracket and damaged Component to VIZIO for inspection. VIZIO reserves the
right to negotiate the costs of repair. If VIZIO determines, in its sole discretion, that it is impractical to ship
the damaged component or bracket, VIZIO may designate, in its sole discretion, a component repair
facility to inspect and estimate the cost to repair. The cost, if any, of shipping the Component to and from
such repair facility and of such estimate shall be borne solely by the purchaser. Whenever claims are
settled, VIZIO reserves the right to be subrogated under any existing insurance policies the
claimant/purchaser may have.
All above warranties and insurance are null and void if: the VIZIO bracket in use during the
occurrence is not provided to VIZIO for inspection upon VIZIO’s request at the sole expense of the

or tampered with; or if it is determined by VIZIO that the damage did not result from the VIZIO product’s
failure or that in fact no occurrence took place; or the repair or replacement of the damaged Component
is covered under a manufacturer’s warranty; or VIZIO determines that the Component was not used
under normal operating conditions or in accordance with any labels or instructions. Improper installation
voids this Limited Warranty & Insurance. VIZIO’s Limited Warranty & Insurance only protects against
damage to properly connected and installed Components where VIZIO has determined, in its sole
discretion, that the damage resulted from a VIZIO bracket’s failure, and does not protect against acts of
God such as flood, earthquake, war, vandalism, theft, normal-use wear and tear, corrosion, misuse or
abuse. Any damage caused by failure to observe instructions for installation, or product limitations
specified in the product manual or product specification sheet, or mounting on unsuitable surfaces will not
be covered by the VIZIO’s Limited Warranty & Insurance.
The protections described herein shall be IN LIEU OF any other warranty, express or implied, including
but not limited to, any warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
In no event shall VIZIO be liable for incidental, special, direct, indirect consequential or multiple damages
such as, but not limited to, lost business or profits arising out of the sale, use or inability to sell or use any
VIZIO products, even if advised of the possibility of damages. This Limited Warranty & Insurance gives
you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which may vary from state to state. Some
states do not allow the exclusion of limitation of incidental or consequential damage so the above
limitations may not apply to you.
