KZ4LIFE! Replacement Program


Q: Is there a Replacement Program?

A: You Bet! 

"KZ4LIFE" as we call it. If you ever have the misfortune of breaking a pair of KZ Shades, whether by tripping over your own two feet (guilty!) or because you dropped them while Spelunking - we will ship you a brand new pair of the same (or the new more awesome model!) for $20 every time. No substitutions though guys, however EACH pair you own is covered by this same Deal.
All you have to do is send us a picture, your basic info and a quick story here and we will have the team ship you out a new pair tomorrow so you can get back to pursuing that next Adventure. 
By the way if you lose them entirely, fill out the form anyways! We will honor the first pair that completely go rogue under the same deal as well. 
So next time you head out, don’t worry about your gear because you’re in the #KZFam and #KZ4LIFE has you covered.  


Q: How long before my order leaves your warehouse?

A: To be safe, plan on us shipping your product 1-2 business days after your order is received.  We make every attempt to fill orders received by 2pm EST same business day but we cannot guarantee your order will ship the same day it's placed - we will certainly do our best and from there it's up to the mail man! :)

    HOW TO

    Q: How do I attach / detach my side arms on Interchangeable Shades?

    A: To attach simply just push your side arm directly straight into the frame until you hear a 'click' sound - if you do not hear a 'click' sound it's likely that your side arm isn't fully attached yet and may appear to bend outward. To detach just pinch n' pull directly straight out on the hinge's button. Remember, the hinges are strong, but you're stronger - so follow these simple instructions so you don't break your new shades. Check out the video below for a quick demonstration!
