Ominous silence.

It is the manufacturer's responsibility to fix defects, not the retailer's. You might try contacting Atomic. Good luck.

Coupled with the disclaimer on Atomic's site about "accelerated wear," and the multiple reports of blowups, I would just ditch the stuff. Sometimes you just have to cut your losses.
