How It Works

After purchasing your Kobalt socket set, you must register it to participate in the "Sockets For Life" program.

Step 1 - Registration

The registration process can be done through or by calling 1.888.3KOBALT.

To register your Kobalt socket set(s), you will need to have the following pieces of information ready in order to create your account:

Mailing Address
Kobalt Socket Set Item #
Reference Number from your sales receipt
Follow the prompts and an account will be created

Step 2 - Redemption

When the time comes that you need to make a claim to replace a lost, missing, or misplaced socket - you simply return to and login to the account you created during registration.

Once you have accessed your account, you will see a list of the socket sets you have registered with "Sockets For Life". Select the set that needs a replacement socket, you will be given a list of all of the sockets associated with that set. Select which socket needs replacing and submit your order. This same process can also be completed by calling 1.888.3KOBALT and following the "Sockets For Life" prompts.

Step 3 - Order Completion

Shipping and handling charges do apply for each socket ordered through a "Sockets For Life" claim. Shipping and handling charge is per socket. You will be asked to submit credit card payment information before your order can be completed. The shipping & handling charges are as follows:

$4.95 - 1/4" drive, 3/8" drive and 1/2" drive sockets
$5.95 - Impact sockets
$6.95 - 3/4" drive sockets
$5.00 - Additional charge for each shipment to Canada

Once your credit card transaction is complete an order will be created and your socket will be shipped direct to you.
