Affected products

White nocks used in arrows for Ravin® Crossbows

Product description

The recall involves all white plastic molded clip-on nocks (designated Part No. 100911) used in arrows for Ravin® Crossbows. This recall only applies to white Ravin® clip-on nocks and does not apply to any Ravin® Crossbows or Ravin® arrows.

Hazard identified

If the nock is not fully engaged with the bowstring, the Ravin® Crossbow may not discharge when the trigger is pulled.  Failure to return the Safety to the SAFE position may result in the bow discharging while re-nocking of the arrow.  If the bow discharges the arrow during re-nocking and the user has ignored the additional warning to not put their hand in the bowstring path, the bowstring can impact the user's hand possibly causing a laceration hazard to the finger.

As of December 1, 2017, the company has received no reports of injuries in Canada.
