Nocks keep falling out

Post by Bcwn » Tue Dec 05, 2017 8:18 am

So I use the NAP shrink wrap fletchings. When I tried to get my nocks out of my arrows BEZ they were impossible to get out not wanting to mess them up just to get them out I opted out of using a pair of pliers. So I go ahead and shrink wrap my fletchings, now the nocks just fall right out. So my question is this, do I put a dab of glue on the nocks and if I do is that going to them make them stuck in there forever? Thanks in advance

Use a dab of hot melt glue or push the nock into the shaft through a plastic shipping bag.

BTW, nocks are not expensive.

Next time you put the shrinks on, make sure you have a 1/16" blank area at the back of the wrap. Do like Don said, a sandwich baggie will work too.

If I get a loose nock on my bees I just put a small piece of tape around the nock and just slide it in!
