Ravin Crossbows of Superior, Wis., recalled about 223,000 Ravin white arrow nocks due to potential safety risk.
If the white 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 the arrow, posing an injury hazard to users.
The firm has received 51 reports of finger injuries while nocking or re-nocking the white nocks, including 21 serious injuries, and 28 finger injuries. The firm has also received reports of other injuries resulting from maintenance and other issues.
This recall involves all white plastic molded clip-on nocks used in arrows for Ravin brand crossbows. The white arrow nocks were sold in a package of 12 and also as original equipment with Ravin R9 and R15 crossbows and with Ravin arrows.
The nocks were manufactured in the U.S. and were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods stores, and other stores nationwide.
The company urges consumers to immediately stop using the recalled white arrow nocks and contact Ravin Crossbows for free replacement orange nocks and up to a $1 merchandise credit for each recalled nock that is returned.
There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
