    With prices as they are, can anyone suggest a way to make this device? It doesn't appear to be very complicated. Suggestions appreciated.

    Hunter 86,

    several makers out there, but kind of hoping to put one together at home. Maybe steel s-hooks, rope, couple of handles!!! Any ideas? thanks

    Do yourself a favor and buy one. The limbs of a crossbow are under considerable pressure when they're being cocked.....if the cocking rope fails....you end up with a pile of useless parts and maybe a bill for the emergency room.

    $10 bucks at walmart

    The Barnett Rope Cocking Device will help you cock the rope of your crossbows efficiently by reducing the cocking strain to half. The Barnett rope cocking device facilitates appropriate targeting by providing ideal handling to the user. A vice-like grip of the cocking rope is necessary for good results. The Barnett rope cocking device will offer you just the right hold, sufficient for lowering the tension of cocking rope crossbows. This tool adjusts the rope to fit the hand and bow, fits all Barnett models and is compatible with new, as well as, old models of crossbows.

    Everyone thanks for your comments. I am convinced it is in my best interest to buy the correct cocking device. This site is always a great place to get honest and well thought out answers to hunting questions. Thanks again.
