  • Simply find the item you wish to purchase and click . That will transport you and your desired item to the shopping cart where you can see and/or adjust the number of items you have selected for purchase.

  • When you are satisfied with your purchases and wish to have the order processed, proceed to checkout.


    You don't want another shopper putting items into your shopping basket. Our cookies are tiny "byte-sized" computer morsels that get sent to your computer from our computer so that our cart can identify your personal shopping basket by number. That way, your product choices go into your cart and other shopper's choices go into their own buggies.

    Your web browser automatically deletes our "cookies" after a few hours so that they don't take up unnecessary space.

    If you are shopping at Shop4LifeJackets with your cookies "disabled" your shopping basket may not work effectively. If that happens either re-enable your cookies in your browser options or email us at Service@Shop4Network.com.




    Easy & Secure Ordering. Our Shopping Cart is encrypted with 128 bit encryption
    and secured by one of the most trusted names in web transactions. To make your browsing super fast, you will see the locked padlock only when necessary - when you reach the section of the order where you are asked to input your personal information.




    CHARGE: For most orders, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

    CHECKS: Shop4LifeJackets accepts personal checks, money orders, cashier's checks, business checks, government or institutionial-issued checks for the EXACT amountof the purchase including any shipping and handling charges.

    We reserve the right to hold your order until check clearance is guaranteed. Bank cashier's checks, money orders, or wire transfers will assure your order of quick shipping.

    COD: Unfortunately, at this time we cannot ship to you "Cash on Delivery",





    Because we deal with literally hundreds of suppliers and manufacturers and suppliers' prices change, our prices are in constant flux. Prices in our catalogue are kept current on a daily basis and are rarely different than the catalog shows. However, we are not responsible for typographical errors, and prices and availability are subject to change without notice.




      From time to time (and much to our dismay), shortages and out of stocks will occur. Items may be backordered for three reasons:
    • There is more demand for the item than we originally anticipated, and our suppliers have to re-supply us with the additional inventory.
    • The manufacturer has failed to ship to us in a timely manner due to a shortage of parts, materials, etc.
    • Transportation strikes, natural disasters, etc.
    When we experience an out of stock situation, your entire order will be shipped at one time if the out of stock item arrives within 5 working days of the date of your order.
    If we don't anticipate being able to restock quickly enough to meet the 5-working day limit, your order will be shipped minus the out of stock item. At that time, out-of-stock items priced over $15.00 will be treated as a backorder unless the customer requests that we not ship backorders. Out-of-stock items priced under $15.00 will be deleted from the order, and you will be asked to re-order at another time.

    For standard-sized backordered items, freight will be calculated on the entire order, charged on the first part, and the backordered items will be sent as quickly as possible with no additional freight charges. Oversized-backordered items (those marked with *'s or ++) will be charged the actual freight when they are shipped.

    If we don't anticipate re-stock of an item in a reasonable amount of time, your order will be shipped minus the out of stock item, and you will be asked to re-order at another time.

    Discontinued items will, of course, not be shipped.

    You will receive a notice in the first package indicating the dispensation of any items not shipped.




    No two individuals are alike. We will print the most accurate details possible of item sizes and recommendations for fit if we know them. However, all sizes are approximate, and we can NOT guarantee items as far as the fit for your individual case.




    Retail tax is charged only to shipments shipped to or ordered by persons living in Texas. Even Texas residents can save on taxes! Our tax rate is 8.25%!




    Some items are available but not stocked by our warehouses. They can be ordered from the manufacturers and shipped either through our warehouse or direct from the manufacturers to you. These items take a little more time to coordinate and ship, may incur an extra handling charge, and are non-returnable items. If you have ascertained the availability of the item by search through our e-mail search department, you may order it by telephone or direct e-mail order.




    See the Domestic Shipping for contiguous 48 US shipping.

    See the International Shipping for shipping outside the continental US

    See Hawaii, Alaska, US Territories, APO/FPO Shipping for shipping charges to those locations





    We want you to try anything in this catalogue risk-free. You'll usually find our product descriptions more complete than other life jacket catalogues. We feel that the more you know about a product, the more likely you are to like it when it arrives.

    That's important to us because when you do receive a product from us, you have 30 days from the date of the invoice to decide if
  • it is what you expected
  • it fits your needs
  • it is what you want If, upon viewing an item, you're not delighted with any merchandise you buy from us, just return it to us.* No explanation of why you are returning it is necessary, but we'd like to know if it will help us solve an inadequacy on our part. Also tell us what instructions you have concerning replacement, substitution, or refund

    Send it prepaid, insured, in new, unused condition with its original parts, instructions, packaging, and your invoice (or a copy) within 30 days of the date on the original invoice.

    * Exceptions are few and most of them are common sense. (ie: "We can't take back a half eaten hamburger or a crashed vehicle") We do not take back special orders, videos and books. If an exception is made there will be a 20% restocking fee.

    Items that do not meet the above few conditions will be subject to a restocking fee or, at the Company's option, returned to the customer without a refund. Shipping costs on any package returned to you will be charged to your account.

    We are not responsible for damage which occurs in transit by return nor do we accept COD returns.

    Send Returns and Exchanges to:
    Discount Shop4Network LLC
    202 Walton Way Suite 192 #105
    Cedar Park, Texas 78613

    When we receive your return, we'll exchange it or refund the purchase price (less shipping and handling), whichever you prefer. (Please allow 10-21 days for this process to be completed)



    Shop4LifeJackets is always concerned about your satisfaction. However, we regret that personalized items, books and videos, and special order items cannot be returned to us unless there is a defect in workmanship in which case we will replace with an identical product.

    Also see information about remote control products and scooters above.



    Shop4LifeJackets strives to give you the best service available anywhere. An order placed and shipped from our warehouse at your request is considered your responsibility as soon as it leaves our warehouse. Should you decide that you wish to refuse receipt of an item legitimately ordered from us (which has already been processed and handled through our order and shipping department) credit will be issued for the item, minus shipping charges and minus a 20% restocking fee.

    If you wish to cancel an order after we have shipped and before you have received it, please call our service desk to request an authorization to refuse receipt (to avoid the 20% restocking fee). Email us at Service@Shop4NEtwork.com.


    We carry the best products, and our customers experience very few problems. However, should you experience a problem with any item during its manufacturer's warranty period, you can turn to the manufacturers with confidence. We'll gladly help you get in touch with them directly to save you both time and expense.




    We purchase from the most reputable manufacturers, and there is rarely an issue with defective products. However, factories make the occassional mistake.

    If an item doesn't work properly, please call the manufacturer (listed in the product literature) or e-mail our customer service department to report the problem immediately. In most cases (because we're not experts at diagnosing problems), we will put you into direct touch with the manufacturer.

    In all cases, save all of the packaging and packing materials (1 business day)of receipt. Email us at Service@Shop4Network.com.

    Defective items will be replaced with the identical item or handled by the manufacturer directly.




    We make every attempt to avoid errors in the processing of your order, but sometimes mistakes happen. When one does occur, please allow us to correct it.




    We ship by the most efficient means possible. However, damage occasionally occurs

    If a package appears to have obvious damage on the outside which may affect the product inside, please refuse shipment at your door or ask the carrier to note the damage on his shipping manifest and call our customer service department within 24 hours to report any damage sustained.

    This procedure is particularly important for large items shipped by motor freight carriers.

    The customer must inspect the delivered item for damage (both external and not visible from the outside) upon receipt of the merchandise. That requires removing any shrink wrapping, cardboard or other packing materials so that all aspects can be inspected. Any damage should be noted on the carrier's acceptance report, and such damage reported to Shop4LifeJackets.com within 24 hours of delivery.

    Once the product is accepted by the Customer without notation of damage, damage incurred becomes the responsibility of the Customer, and (while Shop4LifeJackets.com will help with any latent damage claim) Shop4LifeJackets is not liable for damage incurred subsequent to receipt and acceptance of the product.

    In all cases of damage, save all of the packaging and packing materials and call our customer service department within 24 hours (1 business day) of receipt. Email us at Service@Shop4Network.com.




    We routinely ship Domestic (continental US) orders by UPS, Fed Ex, or USPS ground transportation. UPS and Fed Ex will not deliver to a post office box. For this reason, please provide us with a physical address for delivery rather than a Post Office Box. (See below if you need to ship to PO Box address)

    Additionally, some oversize or inordinately heavy items may be shipped by Motor Freight or Regular Post. In that case, we will need your exact address to estimate charges.

    Customers who request US Postal delivery or who give us only a Postal address to which to deliver will be delivered by USPS and are charged according to the policies for postal orders below. For Post Office Box Addresses, APO/FPO, Alaska, Hawaii, & US Territories

    International orders

    Most orders can leave our warehouse within 1 - 3 business days of receipt of the order.
    UPS Definition
    of Shipping

    Aerosols cannot ship by air




    Shop4LifeJackets ships for as low as $10.95. Domestic ground shipping charges on most orders are inexpensive and easy to calculate before you finalize your order.

    In some places in our catalog, items are listed in case quantities. For those items, orders of multiple single packs will be billed at multiple pack rates where the number of individual items equals the multiple pack.

    Because we have not anticipated all possible large volume or extra heavy purchases to single individuals, heavy or large volume orders may incur extra shipping above that calculated by the order cart. We will not, however, ship such an order with its added shipping charges without first contacting the customer to get approval of the changes.

    The table below shows you charges according to the value of your purchase and whether you have ordered any Oversized items.(Items marked with * or ~ or ++).

    Standard Shipping
    Contiguous 48 States
    Single Item Orders: $10.95 Ground Shipping (None Oversized Items) $10.95
    Each Additional Item Ships for only $4.00 when added to the same order
    (None Oversized Items)
    For ease of calculation:
    We charge an extra $4.00 over the standard shipping charges for one in your order.

    = add $8.00 over the standard chart

    = add $12.00 over the standard chart

    = add $16.00 over standard chart




    An oversized item is one whose weight may be under 30 Lb. but whose physical dimensions and bulky appearance take up extra room in the cargo area of the shipper's transport vehicles. These items are charged for 30 Lb of weight even though they do not weigh 30 Lb.

    A double oversized item is one whose weight is over 30 Lbs and under 70 Lb. but whose physical dimensions and bulky appearance take up extra room in the cargo area of the shipper's transport vehicles. These items are charged for 70 Lb of weight even though they do not weigh 70 Lb.

    For ease of calculation, see the chart above




    To Track your
    UPS Package
    Shipping time = order processing time + shipping option you have chosen on your order.

    Please allow 1-2 weeks for standard delivery of most items within the continental US. Domestic UPS takes 3-7 business working days for delivery. We can usually ship your order from our warehouse or the warehouse of the manufacturer or supplier within 1-3 working days of receipt of the order.

    Fed Ex, UPS, US Postal Service, and the shipping departments of our suppliers are not under our employ, and we cannot guarantee exact delivery.

    Because the arrival time of your order is often dictated by conditions which are out of our control, we would rather err on the side of caution than promise our customers what others may not be able to do

    We will not normally be alarmed nor trace any usual ground shipments until at least 2 weeks after shipping.

    Express UPS shipments are guaranteed by UPS to arrive on schedule. UPS Ground and USPS postal priority are not guaranteed by the shipper to arrive on any special time schedule.

    To find out how long UPS Ground Transportation usually takes from Shop4LifeJackets to you, go to UPS Transit Time and type in our Texas zip code: 78613. Add two working days (after the first working day we receive the order) to the transit time. That gives the order time to leave our warehouse.

    While this is not a guarantee of delivery on that exact time schedule it is usually fairly realistic.





    Need your order fast?

    Express shipping no longer available. We apologize for the inconvenience.





    Yes, we can ship to Alaska, Hawaii, and U.S. territories outside the contiguous 48 states by U.S.Postal Service or Postal Priority where possible. Additionally, sensitive to the plight of our many troops in foreign countries, we can now ship to APO or FPO addresses.

    Most orders to Postal addresses ship by Priority mail. However, some extra heavy or dense items may ship regular post (i.e. foods or litter etc).

    No tracking is provided by the U.S. Post Office, which complicates the process. Although we anticipate few problems, we can make no guarantees of adequate delivery.

    Unfortunately, many of our distributors and suppliers will not ship by U.S. Postal Service. Therefore, some items incur longer shipping time as they must be shipped to our Texas warehouse before being sent to these addresses.




    Shipping charges to APO and FPO addresses, Alaska, Hawaii, and U.S. Territories are shown below.

    Hi, AK, U.S. Territories, and APO/FPO Shipping
    Single Item Orders: $10.95 Ground Shipping (None Oversized Items)
     Plus $3 per pound (Actual weight or dimensional whichever is larger).
    Each Additional Item Ships for only $10.00 when added to the same order
    (None Oversized Items)
    Items marked with this symbol are charged regular shipping as described above plus
    oversize charges described below.



    Handling charges are charged on oversized items - items marked with asterix's

    For ONE add $4.00
    For TWO add $8.00
    For THREE add $12.00
    For FOUR add $85.00
    to the regular APO/FPO, Ak, Hi, and territories shipping chart above.

    Some items such as swimming pools, towing craft and other bulky or heavy items are unable to ship by U.S. Post due to size restrictions, and can therefore, not be shipped to these addresses. If you are in doubt, ask our shipping department. We will need the item number, item description, and the exact address where you would like it shipped.




    We can usually ship your order from our warehouse within 12-48 hours of receipt of the order. However, most of our suppliers will not ship by post. Therefore, APO/FPO orders are usually shipped only from the home location of Shop4LifeJackets in Austin, Texas. This sometimes occasions some delay in shipping while an item travels from its original supplier to Texas FIRST and is then shipped to you.

    The arrival time of your order is also dictated by conditions which are out of our control. We would rather err on the side of caution than promise our customers what others may not be able to do.

    Usual U.S. Postal Priority timing should be calculated for all orders outside the contiguous 48 states. APO/FPO Post can take from 2-6 weeks to reach you.



    There is no reasonably priced, faster way to ship to most of these addresses (including APO/FPO addresses) than Postal Priority. Please do NOT request UPS Rush shipping for orders to APO/FPO, Alaska, Hawaii, or US territory orders.



    Most APO/FPO addresses have the following general restrictions:

  • Packages may not exceed 70 lbs. (Some zip codes have lower limits) Packages may not exceed 130 inches in combined length and girth. (This means if you have a package that is 100" in length and 40" when you measure around it, you cannot send the item)
    All packages must be sent via the U.S. Postal System. The post office also requires companies or individuals to hand deliver packages being sent to APO/FPO addresses. (This is one reason why many merchants won't ship to APO/FPO addresses.)
    Firearms, alcohol, perishable foodstuffs and certain hazardous items also are restricted. Each zip code may have an even more detailed list of the restrictions for certain types of products.
