    Rope Cocker

    Post by Stonedog on Wed Oct 22, 2014 6:51 am

    All-

    My prod is simply too heavy to cock by hand, so I made a rope cocker.....here is my next issue.

    The way I designed the end of my tiller Is perfect for my shooting set up, but as it is angled down, the cocker just slides off the end....and honestly I don't want to cut in a groove in the end of the tiler if I can avoid it.  

    So what do you suggest?  Any other ideas (not a goat's foot, I simply don't want to make or buy one)???

    Make a "cup" to go over the end of the tiller similar in function to this one:

    Make it out of metal or even heavy leather.

    Traditional way with belt-hook ropes was a hook under the stock , some distance behind the lock.
    Or a pin through the stock sides - same way as was done with goat feet and cranequins

    How would I use a pin with a rope cocker?
