Default Warp lid on my yeti

Time to upgrade to a Brute. Didn't figure a lid should warp on a high dollar Yeti.

You are not supposed to store a Yeti with the lid latched because all that ice the cooler is making will warp the lid

Funny you say that. But a big temperature differentiation will make the lid warp just like in the pic.

I have used many Igloos over the years in our youth group. We have certainly used them, but almost if not all of them the hinges all break.

Not sure why you'd spend a bunch of money on ANY new cooler when you can get the one you already paid for fixed for free or very little money. Can I have your 'ruined' Yeti?

I have a Reconditioned 75 that has warped edges. The guy I bought it from at yeti told
me I could trade it in for a new one if I was dissatisfied. Have had it for two years and can't tell a difference between it and the brand new roadie I have. That being said, if I had bought one new and it did that I would send in for a new lid.

That's exactly the problem. Ice maker was pushing ice out of the sides and it had to go somewhere. I have 2 of them and never had a problem but I'll give you $75 for it and you can go get you a Brute!

My 75qt Brute had a lid deformity and when I finally got around to emailing the pics and telling them about it (14 months after I bought it), they were very apologetic and sent me a new one and the UPS return label to send the other one back. That's good customer service.
