Navigating The C. Crane Website
The C. Crane Website is divided into six main categories:
Any of these categories can be accessed from any page by clicking the tab on the category bar located at the top of every page.
When you click on any of the eight main category tabs at the top of the page, a landing page will open with a list of sub-categories. You can then click on the subcategories, such as AM/FM Radios under the Radio & Radio Accessories tab, to see individual products within that category.
You can also find what you're looking for on our website by using the search tool located toward the top of each page. Just type in the item you're looking for, such as "LED light bulb", or the product code such as "CC2BE", and then click on GO. A list will come up that includes all instances of the item you entered in the search box.
Results within a category and search can be fine tuned further by using the Filter By option on the left navigation pane. Results can also be sorted by using the Sort by drop down at the top of the category or search results pages.
Placing an Order
Once you've found what you're looking for on our website, placing an order online is quick and easy. Just Enter the quantity you would like in the box above the "Add to Cart" button. The default quantity is set to "1", but you can change that quantity simply by pointing your cursor at the box, clicking on the number and then entering a new quantity. Once you have the right quantity, click on the "Add to Cart" button and the item(s) will be added to your shopping cart.
Each time you add an item to your shopping cart, you will be taken to the cart page.
You can click the "Proceed to Checkout" out button or continue navigating the site by clicking the "Continue Shopping" button, clicking any link or going to the search.

I want to thank you for your service. I received my repaired radio back today and you did more than I expected. I love the CC Radios. This one is over 10 years old and still works great. I have another older version and I gave it to my son for a clock radio and it still works great. I think there is no finer radio on the market. Believe me when I tell you that if I ever need another radio, your will be the one I purchase.
