First, check that your order has shipped from APE Defense and that the carrier’s tracking number shows that they have delivered it using the methods outlined above. Shipping times and reliability vary by carrier. We have found UPS and Fedex to have good tracking systems, while US Postal Service’s systems are less reliable.

If USPS shows delivered and you did not receive the package, then you will need to contact them at 800-275-8777 or we cannot file a claim. IMPORTANT: Ask to speak with the postmaster for your city directly; we have never seen an instance where anyone else cared enough or was empowered to help.

For UPS and Fedex: If your tracking has ceased to show movement on the package, and delivery has exceeded the expected delivery date by 2 business days for expedited services or 5 business days for ground services, then please give us a call or send us an email.

For USPS: If your tracking has ceased to show movement on the package, and delivery has exceeded the expected delivery date by 4 business days for Priority Mail and 7 business days for First Class Mail, then please call or send us an email and we will figure out a solution.

If you feel that you have received the wrong product, please contact customer service at within 72 hours of receiving the product.

In the rare instance a return is necessary, the guidelines below will affect the return. 

1. All returned merchandise must be pre-approved by APE Defense prior to return. 

2. Goods returned must be in original condition and packaging and all contents and documentation must be present.

3. RMA is required with every return or we cannot process it.  

We will gladly accept return for refund any unopened and unused product. Simply return any new unused item back to us within 10 days from the date delivered. Shipping charges are not refundable.
