Arrow nocks recalled by Ravin Crossbows due to injury hazard

NockAbout 220,000 Ravin arrow nocks are being recalled in the United States with about an addition 3,600 recalled in Canada. Arrow nocks are small, plastic parts that take the full force of each arrow shot and transmit that force to the arrow shaft. 

If the nock isn’t 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 firm 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 Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Dicks Sporting Goods stores, and other stores nationwide from October 2016 through November 2017 for between $8 and $15 when sold separately from other equipment. The arrow nocks were also included as original equipment with Ravin crossbows sold for between $1,500 and $2,000 and Ravin arrows sold for between $75 and $110.

This recall involves all white plastic molded clip-on nocks used in arrows for Ravin brand crossbows. The white arrow nocks were sold separately in a package of 12 and as original equipment with Ravin crossbows and Ravin arrows. The white nocks measure about .9 inches long.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled arrow nocks and contact Ravin Crossbows for free replacement nocks, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.
