I have not had any issues with the Lumenok working. I believe a couple key points should be noted when installing the lighted nock to insure it works properly: avoid damaging arrow when removing regular nock. I used a metal coat hanger - straightened and cut a little longer than bolt (arrow). The metal hanger can then be pushed through the tip insert - it will fit in the hole in the back - and used to push the old nock out. A little rap on the hanger end with a hammer makes quick work of removing nock. Once the nock is out, I used sand paper on the nock end of the shaft to remove any paint, burrs or imperfections thus making better electrical contacts for the Lumenok. I also use a round file to clean up the inside of the arrow shaft on the nock end. I have four Lumenoks and so far they all work very well.

- Valuable in shot evaluation and arrow recovery Review by GoldSeven
Quality Price Value
I used the Lumenok on a late season deer hunt in Ohio with a new crossbow. Having practiced and feeling confident at 40 yards, I took a 38 yard broadside shot at a deer from an tree stand. At the shot I saw the glow of the arrow in flight for a brief period, but it disappeared and the deer ran. I was concentrating more on where I wanted the arrow to go. I actually thought I missed - shooting over the animal. Climbing down the tree I went to recover the arrow and determine what went wrong. This is where the value of the lighted nock became apparent. Sticking in the ground shining like a beacon I quickly recovered the arrow which was covered in blood. The nearby blood trail led to the deer. The arrow had passed through the top half of the lungs. The light disappeared as it passed through the animal. This was my first experience with a very fast bow where visually tracking the arrow in flight was nearly impossible. The Lumenok made arrow recovery simple.
