Default Problem with lighted nock??

I got a lighted nock for deer hunting. Could someone tell me how to properly install it so that it works? At first, i pushed the nock completely into the arrow and shot it, but it didnt light up. Should i leave a crack of space between the nock and arrow so it has room to move?

I have never used that particular lighted nock. If it didn't work I'd take it back where I got it.

I have heard of problems with those

I make my own with bobber lights. I haven't gotten it just right where they turn on automatically, I have to manually click them on, but it can be done. It should slide into the arrow to a point where there's a space left, when you shoot it should click forward and turn on the light.

Might want to make sure the nock end of your arrow is smooth - any burrs can cause problems with lighted nocks.
