Lumenok installation...

Has anyone done these to completed bolts?

Arrowhead since you made the bolts can you guide me thru removing the old nocks and inserting these?

I plan to practice knock removal on a cracked shaft out of commission bolt first, but after that I no plan. Do i just lightly twist with pliers to break the glue seal?

No glue in the new nocks in the Victory arrows. Just pull the nocks out, lightly sand the end of the shaft square and put the Lumenok in place.

Re: Lumenok installation...

Yea, easy to swap out. You gonna like the Lumenoks.

If you shoot them alot the little contact wires will put a little indent in the end of the shaft which causes a weak light or no light when fired. Pull the nock out and sand the end of the shaft with fine sandpaper keeping it as square as possible. Just a little will do. I do it right before hunting season just to make sure they are good to go.

Re: Lumenok installation...

I am anxious to try out the lumenoks this year or I should say for my son to try them out. I was suprised when target shooting in the sun how well they showed up. I installed mine the easy way. I just ordered some victory arrows from Arrowhead with the lumenoks already installed.

Re: Lumenok installation...

Just curious what does a set of lumenoks run? How much does this throw your arrow off if at all?

Re: Lumenok installation...

Usually about $10 a piece. They will add a few grains of weight to the back of the arrow but in accepted archery ranges, I did not have to adjust for POI change.

Re: Lumenok installation...

Plastic flat nocks? Got to be careful with Carbon and heat. Could try very hot water, dip back of arrow in the water for a bit then try to pull the nock out with a vice grip. Even if the nocks are press fit and not glued, the tolerances can make removal difficult.

Re: Lumenok installation...

Disclaimer - while this will work most of the time, sometimes it won't. Use this method at your own risk. This is the method I use.

To remove the factory glued in nocks - Drill with a bit smaller than the nock. The heat from the drill will usually cause the nock to spin free, when it does just back the drill out slowly while keeping the nock attached to the drill bit. Or, pull quickly if the drill doesn't catch it.

I've also frozen them in a freezer and had the glue break free. Most of the CA or crazy glue type glues will break free in freezing temperatures.

Carbon arrows will not take heat well and will usually cause the fibers and resins to break down.
