Made a homemade lighted nock today. Total cost $8 ($5 for replacement light battery via mail order). Total time to make and test = 15 minutes.
1. Drilled a small diameter hole through nock for more brightness when lit.
2. Cut a nock in half and glued bottom half to battery.
3. Took a dab of crazy glue to light end and glued top half of nock.
4. Tested 10 shots @ 20 yards. 100% [up][up]

I've been making them like that for a while now. I do not drill through the nock though. With a translucent nock you get enough light without the hole. If you buy the batteries in bulk you can get them for less than $3 each. I buy mine from hawglite. Last time I checked they had a 6 pack for $14.95. They are fun to make and cheaper than the commercial ones. I ran one through a doe opening day, worked like a champ.

I've seen this before. How heavy would you say the nock is, compared to a bare nock ?
