    Crossbow Safety

    Take a thumb screw, drill it for small screw and mount it on the tickler with nylon washers. Figure out the angle of arc for the tickler's movement and drill a hole in the tiller. Open the mouth of the hole and add a brass grommet with some superglue. The knurled nut holds the tickler down while cocking and it quickly spins down to loose a bolt. Seen here upside down.

    Good idea.  A few organisations and shooting ranges require a safety on your crossbow for you to be allowed to use it with them.  This is only set to get more in our 'Elf & Safety' obsessed culture...and we want to prevent any unpleasant accidents that would give ammunition to the 'ban anything that's fun' brigade!  Evil or Very Mad
