I don't know if this would work on any/all crossbows, but here is a little instructional video of
how to do it with a Center Point Sniper just using your cocking rope:

This method works flawlessly with my CP Sniper 370.

We need to change our politicians
like we do dirty diapers.............
for the same reason.

Works on my Ten Point too! Though I had to make a shorter rope to do it.

De-cocking arrow is way to go. Look for a muddy bank/ditch some sort to softer ground NOT ROCKS, let her rip. I learned after busting 3 or 4 regular arrows shot into mud. Hit 1 little pebble and throw it away. Field points were even trashed. I carried my Morrel target for a while, cost me vanes as I was shooting thru at less than 3 yards, to lazy to walk 30 yards were it wouldn't go thru. De-cocker from then on.

I made a decocking arrow. I just epoxied a shaft into the old handle ball for my star sizer I had left from when I put a roller handle on it. Even used a shaft that had a very small bend in it so I wouldn't waste a good shaft

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!

Default Since I have the strength to **** the crossbow

I use that same to decock it. Grab the string the same way you **** it chest on the stock, foot on the steel, pull back like your cocking it and reach you thumb over and pull the trigger. Watch out now. Don't go off half cocked. Btw if you are accident prone don't try this... Edited same word for rooster you know ****. Fuel ****.
