Default Flap bracket with a dent from manufacturing?

Hello group,

I'm wondering if this dent (circled in red) in the Flap bracket (W-1025A) is something to be concerned with or should I simply ignore it?


It was there from the day I opened the shipping crate. It looks to me that something hard (a tool?) fell on it so leaving this mark. This thing is about 3/8in long, and at least 1/32in deep. Should I live it as it is or "grid" it somehow ? Or simply call Van's for a replacement ? I guess they won't believe me when I'll say it was there before I got it here. I suppose I'll have to pay for the replacement (if it is the case).

Easy piece to have replaced, I would ask for a new one.

Agreed. I had a similar gouge. They said it could be ground/polished but went ahead and sent me a new one. Email factory and send them that pic.

I would definitely sleep better with a scratch free flap bracket. I'll contact Van's with this.
