Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain rope cocking devices shipped by Crosman Corporation with Centerpoint Sniper 370 Crossbows with serial numbers beginning with “015”.

The serial number is printed on the right side of the Crossbow above the trigger. The Centerpoint Sniper 370 Crossbows has a camouflaged stock and measures approximately 36.5 inches long. 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. The rope cocking device measures 45 inches from handle to handle. The words “CENTERPOINT” and “SNIPER 370” are printed on each Crossbow’s frame.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Crossbows are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CPSC, tabs on the hooks attaching the rope cocking device to the Crossbow string can bind as the device is pulled back, causing the hooks to break and the rope to recoil, posing a risk of injury, including laceration. Crosman has received three (3) reports of broken hooks on the rope cocking device, including one (1) report of a facial laceration.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Crossbow, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
