To ensure swift and safe delivery, BOING use Royal Mail Tracked or Signed For services that may require a signature upon delivery; therefore, we cannot ship to P.O. boxes or military bases. If there are any import duties, fees or charges, they will be the customer's responsibility.
If you need your purchases sent to more than one place, please place orders individually so that we can ship to each individual address.
If a signature is required and cannot be obtained at delivery, the item may be taken to your local sorting office. In the UK you will need to collect the item in person within 7 days of the attempted delivery. If the item is not collected within this time it will be returned to us.
Standard delivery within the UK
All orders are sent via Royal Mail Tracked or Signed For within the UK. The delivery time guide is 3-5 working days from receipt of the order as each order is handmade and volumes get very high around gift periods.
We aim to ship all orders placed before 5pm the next working day. Orders are only posted from Monday to Friday.
Bank or public holidays will only be made and delivered during working days, not the bank or public holiday. Please be aware over bigger holiday periods such as Christmas or during a sale orders placed during these times can be 5-10 working days. If your order is urgent always email us, [email protected], with any special request and we will do our very best get your order out as early as possible.

If you are outside of the UK, please email a special request to [email protected]
All BOING bands use a neodymium magnet within the clasp. These magnets were developed over 30 years ago, and because they are much stronger than conventional magnets are now very widely used in numerous products such as toys, hard drives, electric motors, jewellery, mobile phones and even by NASA for their moon craft.
However, please be aware that the stronger magnetic fields surrounding neodymium magnets may alter the behaviour of a pacemaker or similar medical heart aid. Therefore do not allow a magnet near such a device (approximately 3cm has been recommended) although this abnormal behaviour will usually stop once the magnet is returned to a safe distance.
You should also be aware that the stronger magnetic fields from neodymium magnets may, in some cases, cause damage by magnetising credit cards, magnetic I.D. cards, televisions, computer monitors, mechanical watches and CRT displays if placed in close contact. Our magnets used are small and are already encased within a steel clasp body limiting to some extent any impact but you must be made aware of this risk.
BOING Apparel Limited accepts no responsibility or liability for any damage or harm caused by a BOING band and acceptance of this clause is a condition of sale and is stated within our terms and conditions.
We accept most major credit and debit cards via Stripe. We cannot accept any payments by cheque or postal order either at events or for online sales.
In the unlikely event that your bracelet needs repair in the first year of ownership, simply email [email protected] or post the bracelet back to us along with an explanation of what happened (you must send it to us recorded delivery as we cannot be held liable if it fails to arrive). If BOING determines that any damage is due to flaws in workmanship or materials, your bracelet will be replaced within 5 days and all P&P costs refunded.
If BOING determines the damage was caused by other reasons, we reserve the right to apply repair charges but we will bear all P&P charges ourselves in posting your bracelet back to you. Please allow up to a week for any repairs.
Issues arising over a year since purchase will be assessed individually.
To avoid selecting the wrong size you must follow the sizing guidelines set out in the size table and stressed above. However, if you do need to return the bracelet for a different size then please post it back to us in its pouch only (you must send it to us recorded delivery as we cannot be held liable if it fails to arrive), along with proof of purchase within 60 days and your requested correct size. As long as the bracelet is in full re-saleable condition in original undamaged packaging we will send you your new chosen size within a week. We will judge whether or not to levy postage charges on sending the bracelet out if the size is materially different.
If your size is not shown, please contact us directly and we will be delighted to help. Please be aware that bespoke bracelets may take up to 5 days to create and send out. We also cannot offer refunds or returns on bespoke products. Any further queries please contact [email protected]
If you have some favourite used rope that you would like us to recycle into a bracelet for you as a memory of a great Mountaineering excursion or damp Ocean experience then please call us. We can usually turn most ropes up to 10mm in diameter into a bracelet, at a reasonable price.
