Limb Accessory Bow Press Information

Congratulations on Your Purchase of a Bear® Bow

Your new Bear Archery compound bow is engineered for accuracy and long life. It's built with quality and pride. No other bow delivers a higher performance-to-value ratio than a Bear.

To get the most from your Bear bow, now and for as long as you own it, follow these important requirements regarding placement of limb accessories and use of bow presses.

Mount Limb Accessories Within 2 Inches of Pocket Only

Bow limb marked with a 2" range with text "Limb mounted accessories can be mounted in this region of the limb only."

Do not mount accessories, in particular clamping-type vibration dampeners, more than 2 inches from limb pockets. Failure to follow this requirement voids your warranty and will likely damage the limbs. (See illustration.)

Use Only An Approved Bow Press

See your authorized Bear Archery dealer to make adjustments using a bow press. Approved presses are only those presses that capture the riser as close to the ends as possible and apply pressure to the limbs ONLY between the axle and limb flare. (See illustration.)

Press should be capable of adjusting to the riser's full length.

Do Not Use An Unapproved Bow Press

Unapproved bow presses include those that use rollers to apply pressure to the mid-section of the limbs.

Use of an unapproved bow press will void your warranty and can result in immediate failure of the limbs and possible injury.
