Lighted nocks can be one of the best investments you can make when it comes to hunting gear. They’ll help you know where your arrow goes, recover more game after the shot, and nearly eliminate lost arrows.
They are an incredible tool that we highly recommend for bowhunters. However, you need to make sure you know how to properly install your lighted nocks for the best results.
We’re here to help make the prepping chores easier with a detailed look at how to properly install Lumenok lighted nocks. Check it out in the video below.
The Steps to Take
There’s basically three steps you need to take to ensure that your Lumenok lighted nocks are ready to roll.
Clean Arrow – Make sure you have a clean arrow. This sounds simple enough, but you’ll be surprised how many shooters neglect this step. Use a Q-Tip with water or alcohol to clean any residue from the inside of shaft.
Square the Shaft – If the end of your arrow shaft is not properly square, you’ll likely struggle to get good contact and connection to properly engage the lighted nock. Use a squaring tool to make sure the shaft is perfectly square to ensure a proper seating of the nock in the shaft. (Be sure you re-clean the shaft after you’re done with the squaring process.)
Trim Nock for a Perfect Fit – Lumenok lighted nocks have tiny ridge lines along the throat of the nock to help you achieve the best fit. Nocks should fit snug, but not too tight. If you’re having to use a tool or bite them with your teeth to move or back the nock out, they are way too tight. You should be able to install, move and disengage the nock with just your fingers. If the nock is too tight, you simply use a knife or razor blade to trim one (or more) of these ridges off the nock for a better fit. It’s basically a process that ensures a perfect, custom fit for your particular arrow shaft.
