Arrow nocks pose injury hazard

Ravin Crossbows is recalling about 220,000 arrow nocks in the United States, because they can cause injuries. If the nock is not fully engaged with the bowstring, the crossbow can fail to discharge when the trigger is pulled and can result in the bow discharging while re-nocking of the arrow, posing an injury hazard to users.

The nock is the notch in the end of an arrow that fits on the bowstring. The Ravin nocks were recalled because, if the nock is not fully engaged with the bowstring, the crossbow can fail to discharge when the trigger is pulled and can result in the bow discharging while re-nocking of the arrow, posing an injury hazard to users.

Ravin has received 44 reports of the arrow nocks malfunctioning. There were 23 reports of finger injuries, including six serious injuries. The nocks were sold at stores nationwide, including Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled arrow nocks and contact Ravin® Crossbows for free replacement nocks. Call 888-298-6335, email nockupdate@ravincrossbows.com or visit www.ravincrossbows.com and click on Safety and Instructions.
