Terms & Conditions


Back-Bone Gear Inc. (Back-Bone) is located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and ships to many international destinations. Customers from outside Canada are responsible for their country’s import taxes, duties and applicable clearance fees. These additional charges are not included in the shipping price.  Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what the additional costs will be prior to buying. Clearance fees can be determined by checking with your local FedEx, DHL or post office website. Estimates of tax and duty can be determined here: https://www.easyship.com/duties-and-taxes-calculator/usa

  • All shipments originate from Ottawa, Canada via FedEx, DHL or Canada Post
  • We are unable to mark the package as a “gift”.
  • Declared shipment value will come from your invoice and it will not be altered.
  • Tracking information will be supplied via email when applicable.

As a general guideline for our US customers, shipments valued under $800 USD are tax and duty free. Shipments above $800 USD typically are subject to 10% tax when imported.


By purchasing a Back-Bone modified camera from our store you recognize and agree that the original manufacturer’s warranty is null and void. Due to the nature of the product Back-Bone cannot be held responsible for accidental damage caused by users opening the product or removing / replacing the IR-cut filter.


Back-Bone has designed the Ribcage Mod Kit as a cost effective alternative to buying our more expensive fully modified cameras. Its use requires that your camera be disassembled, and as such this product may not be for everyone. We have done our best to create quality products with detailed installation instructions. By purchasing a kit you agree that Back-Bone has no control over the skill level of the end user and cannot not be held responsible for any damage caused by its installation and use. You acknowledge that you have reviewed the installation instructions prior to purchase and are confident in your skill level to properly install the kit. You recognize that the original manufacturer’s warranty (GoPro, Sony, Insta360) will be void once the kit is applied.


In no event, regardless of cause, shall Back-Bone be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, punitive or consequential damages of any kind, whether arising under breach of contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, and whether based on this agreement or otherwise, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.


Goods may be returned or exchanged within 14 days of receipt providing:

  • They are returned in “as new” condition, free of visible marks, scratches or defects
  • They are complete with all packaging materials and are accompanied by a receipt from the original purchase
  • Shipping charges are not refunded.
  • Return shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer.
  • We are not responsible for personal data or items left in returned merchandise.

When sending a return, customers must first contact Back-Bone for the proper instructions. FedEx and USPS are recommended for return shipping. UPS shipments from outside Canada will not be accepted as they will charge additional fees to Back-Bone. In the event that taxes or duties are charged to Back-Bone on receipt of a returned item they will be subtracted from the refund. A receipt of the tax/duty charge will be provided to the customer in that case.

Refunds will be made using the same method as the original payment.


All returns are subject to inspection and return approval by back-bone staff. Back-Bone reserves the right to charge for missing or damaged merchandise and parts. If Back-Bone management determines that an item is returnable but does not meet all guidelines, Back-Bone reserves the right to charge an additional restocking fee. The fee charged may vary according to the item’s condition, the state of the item’s packaging and the item value. The minimum restocking fee is 10%.


Special Order Products

Back-Bone requires a full, non-refundable payment before the product will be ordered in for you. Once we receive your payment the order cannot be cancelled. Applicable products are labeled ‘Special Order’ in the item description.

All Special Order products purchased are considered final sale and not eligible for refund or exchange unless deemed and confirmed by Back-Bone to be defective.
