About 6,300 Game Winner® crossbow cocking ropes have been recalled by Academy Sports + Outdoors, of Katy, Texas. The hooks attaching the cocking rope to the crossbow string can break and cause it to recoil, posing a laceration hazard. This recall involves Game Winner® cocking ropes with model number FSGWAR3018 and UPC 400214726596. The cocking ropes help users get a better grip on the crossbow string and aid in pulling it back. They have an approximately 50-inch long black nylon rope, two black plastic hooks and two t-handles. The model and UPC numbers are located on the instruction card that comes with the product. The company has received four reports of the hooks on the cocking ropes breaking, causing the rope to recoil. Three of the incidents resulted in lacerations. The ropes were sold exclusively at Academy stores nationwide and on the company’s website www.academy.com between June 2012 and October 2012 for about $10.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cocking ropes and return them to Academy for a full refund. Call Academy Sports + Outdoors toll-free at (888) 922-2336, or online at www.academy.com and click on Help + Support and Product Recall Info for more information.
