The Lawyer Stuff

Yep. Here it is. All that stuff that is supposed to protect us from “certain people” who may harm themselves and others:


Improper use may result in serious injury. Make sure you’ve read and understand these instructions before you use your crossbow, and make sure anyone who uses your crossbow understands them as well. Adult guidance recommended for children (usually 12 and under) and young adults that have been drinking. Adults that are guiding should be sober as well.

1. Do not aim the Chu-ko-nu crossbow at eyes, face, animals, or breakable objects. This includes family and the neighbor’s cat.

2. Do not aim and fire the Chu-ko-nu crossbow at anyone or anything from point blank range.

3. Do not put the Chu-ko-nu crossbow close to YOUR face: keep face (and other faces) out of recoil path of the projectiles. To see an example of recoil, watch this video – this will give you an idea of why you should protect your eyes.

4. Do not force the bow to fire, or fire in a “super fast” succession. Know the limits of the Chu-ko-nu crossbow. It’s only made of wood, for heavens sake.

5. Do not use if the Chu-ko-nu shows any signs of excessive wear or damage.

6. Maintain a wide, clear range for the projectiles to travel.

7. Do not modify the Chu-ko-nu crossbow in anyway. Read the instructions before use.

Remove all packaging including tags, ties, small pieces of wood after you build the Chu-ko-nu crossbow.  Retain packaging and instructions for future reference. Not suitable for children under 36 months. Small parts. Choking Hazard. Do not let small children near the small parts ever.

If anyone that wants to use this is allergic to wood, the Chu-ko-nu may cause an allergic reaction. We are not at this time making Chu-ko-nu’s out of walnut wood. We promise NEVER to make one out of peanut wood.


Keep the bag the Chu-ko-nu crossbow and the contents it ships in away from babies and children. Do not use in cribs, beds, carriages or playpens. The thin film may cling to nose and mouth and prevent breathing.

WARNING: Drilling, sawing, sanding or machining wood products can expose you to wood dust, a substance know to the state of California to cause cancer. Avoid inhaling wood dust or use a dust mask or other safeguards for personal protection. For more information go to
