Ravin Re-Announces Recall for Crossbow Arrow Nocks Over Severe Finger Injuries
This recall involves all white plastic molded clip-on nocks used in arrows for Ravin brand crossbows, according to a recall notice issued the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) (1.) on August 18, 2021. The white arrow nocks were previously recalled by Ravin Crossbows in December 2017 (2.).
"The firm has received 51 reports of finger injuries while nocking or re-nocking the white nocks plastic molded clip, including 21 serious injuries, and 28 new finger injuries reported since the original recall announcement," CPSC said. "The firm has also received reports of other injuries resulting from discharge when the trigger was pulled."
What's the Problem With Ravin Arrows?
If the white nock is not fully engaged with the bowstring, the crossbow can fail to discharge when the trigger is pulled, CPSC said. This can cause the bow to discharge while the user is re-nocking the arrow, posing a severe injury hazard.
Where Were the Recalled Nocks Sold?
The recalled Ravin crossbow arrow nocks were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Dick’s 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 recalled 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.
The white arrow nocks were sold in a package of 12 and also as original equipment with Ravin R9 and R15 crossbows and with arrows. The white nocks measure about .9 inches long.
