Taking Care of Your Gerbing Product

Despite the Lifetime Warranty on Heating Elements, the majority of warranty claims arise due to lack of care. Gerbing kit is well made and robust, treated well it will keep you warm and safe for many years. Some customers are still using kit that is over 18yrs old.

  1. Always keep the rubber cap on the battery harness when not in use.
    Even when your Gerbing kit is not plugged in (for instance during the summer months) there is a tiny charge going through the plug and if its damp, over a period of time the plug will corrode.
  2.  Ensure you remove the fuse in the summer time to avoid corroding of the plug.
  3. All the plugs should be treated with a damp inhibitor such as WD40 or ACF.
  4. Gloves should be treated with a leather conditioner/waterproofer such as Nikwax. Our gloves use a waterproof Hipora liner however, this liner is underneath the outer skin of the glove which will still soak up water if not protected.
  5. Jackets, trousers and socks can all be washed by hand using a mild detergent. Hang on a line to dry naturally - do not tumble dry.
  6. All our kit can be rolled tightly for packing.
