July 21, 2016 — Crosman has recalled a crossbow rope cocking deice on the CenterPoint Sniper 370 because it can snap and cause a severe injury.
The rope cocking device is a rope with a black plastic “T” shaped handle at each end. A pair of black plastic tabbed hooks are connected to the rope.
Tabs on the hooks attaching the device to the crossbow string can bind as the device is pulled back. This can cause the hooks to break and the rope to recoil.
Crosman received three reports of broken hooks on the device, including one report of a facial laceration. The company issued a Safety Notice, warning:
“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.”
The recall involves rope cocking devices on CenterPoint Sniper 370 crossbows with serial numbers beginning with “O15” (Model: AXCS185CK). They were sold from December 2015 through June 2016 at major retailers like Cabela’s and Academy for about $350.
Crosman is asking consumers to immediately stop using the device and contact the company for instructions on how to return it for a free replacement. The company has already contacted known customers.
