Refund Policy

What Can I Return?

  • If you’re not satisfied with your purchase, please let us help you with a return, refund, or exchange.
  • All standard in-stock items can be returned for an exchange or refund within 30 days of the purchase transaction date.  Please note, that gas detectors are a “perishable” item, so time is of the essence. The 30-day return window is strictly abided by.
  • The 30-day return period is from the purchase transaction date to the date of the explicit refund email request (not via phone, we require an email trail to eliminate any possible confusion).
  • Items must be in new condition with all original packaging, casing, and accessories.
  • We do accept international returns, however, please note, that you will be responsible for return shipping costs and any other associated duties, fees, and import taxes.
  • The refund will be processed within 48 hours after the physical product has been shipped and returned to Forensics Detectors. For refund status updates, please email
