    USPS tried to break them

    Here is how my Edge Tamers arrived.

    $. 30 more tape and being handled by humans rather than gorillas would make all the difference in the world.

    Won't be the first time nor the last.

    Were they packed tight in the box or was there room for them to jiggle around?

    They look beefy, probably heavy too.

    Let us know how they work for you!

    You should have Kennyd from Ken's Bolt On Hooks give the shipper a call.

    They wonder why they’re hurting. USPS is terrible. Gotten so many packages from them that looks like they drug it behind the truck. Half our mail looks the same way.

    They're not light. Even the USPS couldn't really damage them, just some chipped powdercoat. I was on the fence about making them myself but figured I'd buy from the folks who designed it vs. just copy....and I couldn't quite justify buying a plasma cutter with this one project.

    Mine arrived the same way. Wife refused the package at first and told me half hour later I went out and chased him down. Box was beat to pieces and the Tamers were perfect!!

    Yeah, thanks USPS. I wish I could say this has never happened before...

    I don't know if this happens in the first mile, somewhere in the middle, or at the end. My wife's family is three generations of postal workers, and each one of them I know gave their all every day. I'm assuming most of the postal workers are like that, and yet stuff like this somehow still does happen on occasion. I hope you can see we taped the heck out of the box and individually wrapped each Edge Tamer, but even that won't save it if it is that badly treated. When this happens it looks like the package was physically dropped from a high place, and I don't understand how that would even happen...in our local post office they go in cages which get loaded onto trucks, and because these are the heaviest packages, they go on the bottom of each cage.

    If it weren't prohibitively expensive we would ship them fedex or UPS, at least then we could use our own boxes. But the by-weight shipping would be murder (that box was almost 30 lbs).

    I'm sorry USPS beat up your Edge Tamers before you had the chance to , but something tells me you'll give them plenty a good workout yourself

    Have a great weekend,

    Uncle Sugar's Pathetic Schittheads strike again. That definitely looks like a case of a postal worker that went out of his/her way to wreck the package because of the weight. I suggest you show those pictures to the Postmaster and make their life miserable. We used to get a neighbor's cancer medication in the mail. We took them to the recipient instead of throwing them back in the system for USPS to screw up again. I pitched a major league 'female dog' to the Postmaster about that BS. So far they seem to getting the medications for our neighbor done right after my gripes. However; my wife and I rely on mail order prescriptions, and we're always concerned that something like this will happen.

    Our USPS service absolutely sucks here. A neighbor found his 3-month supply of prescription medication in the ditch in front of his house.

    What would UPS or FedEx charge for that shipment? Back in 2008 I bought a tooth-bar from the now defunct Markham Welding and it cost me about $47 via UPS ground and that tooth-bar weighs more than 30-pounds.

    I know you folks are a small business; but this kind of crap that USPS pulls can be detrimental to your business as people equate shipping with the company making the product. Last year I bought some items from two small companies, and one flat out said on their website at the time that they don't ship USPS due to the crappy service. The other company strongly urged customers to use UPS or FedEx for the same reason; but offered USPS if someone wanted it with the disclaimer that any packages lost or damaged by USPS are not their problem.
