Claiming your new patio table has an unbreakable tempered glass top repeatedly is not a good idea....sooner or later someone will test it....

Remember that unbreakable transparent piece of tempered glass I brought home from the scrap pile at the shop?

It was very common here for a while uñtil the chinese factories learnt to leave an expansion gap around the glass .

and while the factory admitted they made a mistake there were no refunds given.

because thats china . no such thing as warranty .

This actually brought back memories of an infamous incident from my childhood, involving a hammer, a glass tabletop about the same size as this one, and me, the star of the show.
