July 21, 2016 — Crosman Corp. has issued an urgent recall for about 1,400 crossbow rope cocking devices because they can snap and cause severe injuries.
The recall involves rope cocking devices that were shipped with the Centerpoint Sniper 370 crossbows with serial numbers beginning with “O15.”
The problem is that tabs on the hooks attaching the device to the crossbow string can bind as it is pulled back, causing the hooks to break and the rope to recoil.
Crosman has received three reports of broken hooks on the rope coking device, including one report of a facial laceration. According to a Safety Notice from the company:
“The tabbed hooks attaching the rope cocking device to the crossbow string can break and cause it to recoil if the hooks are placed on the string in the upward position and they come in contact with the crossbow’s frame.”
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled device and contact Crosman for instructions on returning it for a free replacement device without tabs.
The products were sold online and retail stores like Academy and Cabela’s for about $350. The CenterPoint Sniper 370 Crossbows (Model: AXCS185CK) were shipped from December 2015.
