The information contained on this web page is only a summary of information presented in more detail in the Notice of Pendency of Class Action and Settlement (the “Notice”), which you can access by clicking here.  Since this website is just a summary, you should review the Notice for additional information.

Please read all of the Notice carefully.  If the Court approves the proposed settlement, then you will be forever barred from contesting the fairness of the proposed settlement or pursuing the released claims.  Your legal rights may be affected based on your decision to act or not act.

  • The proposed settlement resolves a class action lawsuit (the “Action”) relating to Defendants’ products called the XHose, XHose Pro, and XHose Pro Extreme (collectively the “Covered Products”). The Action is called Bergman et al. v. DAP Products Inc. et al., and it is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, Court Case No. 14-cv-03205-RDB. The Action alleges that some of the advertisements for the Covered Products were false and misleading, that the Covered Products are defective, and that Defendants have breached express and implied warranties for the Covered Products. Defendants deny all allegations of wrongdoing and liability asserted in the Action. The Court has made no determination that any of the allegations are true, and has made no finding of liability or wrongdoing.
  • The Settlement provides cash payments or an extended warranty to Settlement Class Members who submit valid and timely Claim Forms.
  • The United States District Court for the District of Maryland (the “Court”), which is in charge of this Action, still has to decide whether to grant final approval to the Settlement. Payments will be made if the Court grants final approval to the Settlement and after any appeals are resolved.
