Ravin Crossbows has announced that it will recall 220,000 of its plastic molded clip-on arrow nocks following six reports of serious injuries.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that the defective nocks may not fully engage with the bowstring causing the crossbow to fail to discharge when the trigger is pulled and can cause the crossbow to discharge while re-nocking.
Prior to the recall, Ravin Crossbows received 44 reports of the arrow nock malfunctioning resulting in 23 injuries, six of which were serious.
Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled arrow nocks immediately and contact Ravin Crossbows for a free replacement.
