VMP Announces “Forever Warranty? for Entire Product Line

Video Mount Products (VMP)STEVENSVILLE, Md., March 26, 2009 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the residential, commercial, CI, pro, and security audio/video markets, is proud to announce it now offers a “Forever Warranty? for its entire product line.

“The ‘lifetime’ warranties offered by many mount accessory manufacturers have become convoluted,? explained Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products. “What exactly does ‘lifetime’ mean? Each manufacturer may have a different definition. The life of the product it is mounting? The owner’s life? Putting a lifespan, such as 10 years, on their accessory, and after that period of time it is no longer under warranty? Quite simply, we have so much confidence in each and every one of VMP’ products, we have warrantied the entire line beyond anyone’s or anything’s ‘lifetime’…and we are not putting a lifespan on any one of our products.? more
