“Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.”
– MARK TWAIN
On this page, instead of saying “I” or “me”, the words used are “we” and “our” referring to Out of Sight Litter Box, Inc., the legal Corporation.
Shipped same day if ordered before 11am (EST) weekdays. Shipped next day if ordered after 11am (EST). Shipped on Monday, if ordered on the weekend.
If a customer places an order, then cancels it before it is shipped there will be a $20.00 deduction from refund to cover the Merchant Processing Fee that the seller (me) has already been charged and to cover the Refund Fee the seller (me) will be charged.
I have only had a very few cats not take to using my cabinet. But, if you or your cat is not completely satisfied with your Out of Sight Litter Box® you may return it after receipt for a refund of the purchase price less a 20% return fee. Returns are donated to local no-kill shelters. (Note: purchase price does not include the original shipping cost.) Return request contact must be made before 30 days from delivery date, you will get a Return Authorization Number (RA#) during that contact. You will then be emailed a Stacking/Repackaging Page showing you how to get all the panels back into the original shipping box correctly. Use lots of 2 inch wide packaging tape to hold the box top and bottom together, like the plastic strapping that originally held the box closed.
All product items must be returned in their “original” condition. By “original” I understand that the cardboard shipping box will be opened, the hardware pack will be opened, and that pilot holes will have been used during assembly, “original” means no modification or damage to panels. If your cat(s) “misses” inside the cabinet I strongly suggest that you clean up that “miss” as soon as possible – within hours (not days) – I have tested my panel saturation limits and they withstand hours, (not days) of misses. Plenty of time for proper clean up. I require my original engineered shipping box and packaging to be used to protect the panels from damage during return shipping. I will email a stacking/packaging order page so you can get all the panels and filler foam to fit correctly back in to the box. Also, please return the instructions.
PLEASE, make sure the cabinet panels are clean. I repeat, clean! Returned products that are soiled will result in an additional $50 cleaning charge deducted from your refund. Cost of return shipping, including insurance (purchase price value) is the responsibility of the customer. I recommend using FedEx, they have lower rates and handle packages with more care. Your return shipping cost will not be the same as my “Shipping Cost” charged. I do get a discount, but my shipping cost is more then what I “charge” and have to include some of the shipping cost into the product price. Your return shipping cost may be at least $75 on the East Coast to $115 or more on the West Coast. FYI: FedEx and USP “Store Fronts” add a handing fee to the shipping cost. It is better to find a direct drop off station.
Product returned without shipping prepaid and or without a Return Authorization Number (RA#) will be charged a 20% return fee and the total shipping costs for both ways, to the customer and return costs deducted from refund.
High-SiderTM Litter Boxes and Litter Pans are not returnable and so non-refundable. I think you understand why.
Canceled Orders/Refused At Delivery
When making your decision to order, please understand, why I have to post the following policies, I am just a small company and my profit margins are low so I can not “absorb” the costs of an order that has already been shipped, and can not resell a product that has been shipped and returned.
If you place an order, and decide you want to cancel that order, cancelation needs to be done ASAP after placing that order. I ship out orders before 11am, the same day, on the next day after the order has been placed after 11 am. Most customers don’t like to wait. If a customer places an order, then cancels it before it is shipped there will be a $20.00 deduction from refund to cover the Merchant Processing Fee that the seller (me) has already been charged and to cover the Refund Fee the seller (me) will be charged. If you have to cancel an order that has already been shipped, the shipping costs, and a 20% return fee will be deducted from your refund. Sorry.
Placed orders that are refused at delivery will be charged a 20% return fee and the shipping costs will also be deducted from your refund.
The above Refund Policy might seam like it has a lot of stipulations, but, some limits must be set. And I want to be up front with this information. I have put forth great effort to produce a high-quality product that works and to insure it arrives safely. If your cat just won’t use it, OK, I can understand that, and as stated above, we’ll work something out.
Please contact me directly by telephone (803) 981-3761 or via email [email protected] prior to returning product; you will be provided with a Return Authorization Number (RA#).
Please call during these times below, I do need my rest.
9 a.m. to 10 p.m. (EST) Monday through Friday
10 a.m. to 10 p.m. (EST) Saturday
Sunday is for Church, family and hugging kitties. Oh, and NASCAR!

* I use the word “STOP(S)” to describe the difference (before to after) that my Out of Sight Litter Box® will have on your litter tracking issues. A legal definition might better be “will substantially reduce litter tracking by 98%”. You may find a few pieces of rogue litter here or there, but you will notice such a substantial difference that you too might use the word “Stopped” while telling your friends how the Out of Sight Litter Box® changed your litter tracking issues.
