An important note regarding exchanges

Given the popularity of many of our products, the most effective way to secure an exchange item is to immediately place a new order for the item you would like to exchange for. Send the originally ordered item back, and we will refund your original form of payment upon receipt of your return.

We are also happy to handle the exchange traditionally by shipping your exchange item once your returned item arrives back to us. We will fill the exchange order as stock levels permit at that time, and will contact you should we be out of stock on the item you requested.


  1. To initiate a request, login to your account, navigate to your order history, and select the order from which you would like to initiate a return. If the order has a returnable item, a link will request a Return Authorization will be visible below the list of order items.

  2. Once you receive your RA number, please write the RA number on the outside of the package.

  3. We recommend using a shipping option that provides tracking and insurance on the delivery, especially for valuable hard goods.

  4. Ship the items back to us at the following address:

    Triple Aught Design
    Attn: Returns and Repairs
    1178 Illinois Street
