Step 1. Prepare the New Cocking Rope by tying a Figure 8 stopper knot on one end. Trim the end to within 1/4inch of the knot. carefully use a cigarette lighter to melt the end of the rope so it will leave the end enlarged.

Step 2. The other end of the cocking rope must be modified to fit through the small orifices and pulleys. Separate the rope strands with a toothpick, flatten the rope and separate 2 strands on one side and 2 on the other side and cut out the middle strands.

Step 3. Take a multi strand electrical wire, 6” long and 1/16” in diameter and expose 2” of bare wires on one end.
Separate the strands into 2 sets. Twist 1 set of wires to 1 set of rope fibers using a drop or 2 of a flexible glue (wood glue or fletching glue.) then twist the remaining rope fibers around, add a drop of glue, then twist the other wire fibers around and add a drop of glue.
Let the glue dry for an hour then bend and flex the glued part a little to make it more flexible getting in those tight spots.
