Rope Cocking Aid
A rope cocking aid reduces the overall draw weight of the crossbow by as much as 50%, which makes cocking much easier. It also helps to evenly cock the crossbow.
Place your foot securely into the stirrup of the crossbow, with as much downward pressure as possible.
Secure the middle of the rope of the cocking aid into the groove behind the deck on the stock; usually below the safety.
Place the two cocking aid hooks onto the string and have them as close as possible on each side of the deck.
Grip the rope cocking aid handles. While maintaining your foot in the crossbow stirrup pull each handle upward until the crossbow string locks into place.
Engage the safety.
Remove the rope cocking aid from the string and crossbow.
