Service Options


Our hand-held buttons are designed and built for many years of trouble-free service.  If the operation of your buttons ever becomes problematic, consider these options:

Option 1:
Return worn-out buttons for repair


We repair broken and worn-out pushbuttons.

We replace all the wear items (electrical button and cord).  The service is $5 per button.

Return buttons to us with a copy of the order form (click here).


If one or two buttons are starting to have problems, it's likely that all of the buttons in your system are on the verge of wearing out. Please consider overhauling all your buttons at the same time.


Save postage when returning buttons to us.

As shown in the picture, cut and discard the cord before mailing the handles to us.

We discard the cord as part of the repair, so there's no point in paying postage for the cord!

'X' marks the spot to cut the cord prior to returning the buttons to us for repair.  See below!


Option 2:
Replace worn-out buttons with new buttons

If you're in a hurry, new buttons might be the best approach. You should consider holding onto the worn-out buttons in case you want to have them repaired in the future (that is, option #1).
