Rated 4 out of 5 by Otter Box Defender iPad case Great case, pretty bulletproof and good protection for the precious iPad. Mine gets carted around with me so great to have it in a case that is so robust. Does make it heavier, and the case is hard to get off if you do need to get the iPad out - price you pay for the dust and water resistant nature of the beast. The clip-on cover/stand has a great range of positions to prop the iPad up - however the corners cracked off mine, so I could no longer use it as a stand or cover. The Otterbox crew were fabulous - it was still within warranty, so I sent those lovely Otter folk photos of the damaged cover and they sent me a new Defender cover. August 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by protect from yourself and the kids i thought that making sure the kids never touched my devices was enough, until I dropped one myself........with no otterbox! Now all my devices are protected with Otterbox as no matter how careful you are - accidents can (and do) happen. August 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by otterbox colour options Love Otterbox. Have several in my family - iphone, ipad. But how about some more colours? I'm amazed how limited the colour options are - given the design excellence of the product. You would think some time and effort would go in to making them look good! I have 3 ipad cases - purple for my daughter, orange for my young son and black for me. That's the entire range!!!!! What do I do for my other kids!! Pretty Please - make them pretty please...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Replacement case My case was a replacement for my iPads original otter box case that I bought two years ago. These are great products and well worth the money. I've dropped my ipad may times and these thing take a beating that would have broken my ipad. My only problem was that the silicone around the hard case wore out and they replaced it with no problem's. August 24, 2014

A: 
I had this same problem. Go to the OtterBox web site. Comply with the necessary pics of your cover showing the mishap, also the numbers located on the inside of your case. Download all to the given department and you will receive a new one. It is as easy as that! There are clear instructions to guide you through this process. If you want, call them and the process can be done via the phone. They are a good Company and value their good rep, so going the distance to keep a valued customer is all in a days work, for them. Isn't that refreshing to hear in our all so modern age? Enjoy your new cover!

Yessir. I got one straight from company after I bought my case "new and unopened" from Ebay. As long as it is within a year of purchase and you follow the directions for uploading picture evidence you shouldn't have any problem. They also keep you informed as to where your replacement is along the process too.
