It should of came with a rope cocking aid. Check your directions on how to use it properly. You can also just put your foot through the stirrup and grab the string on either side of the rail and pull it back.
If you can't cock it either of the above ways, they do make a crank for it.
Just out of curiosity, how did you come across owning a bow that you don't know how to cock?

Kudos to Urban

Thanks for helping. I just got back in town and saw this email.

Kudos and many thanks to Urban Legend and Crossbow Nation!

Always wrap the center of the Rope Cocking Aid's rope behind the trigger assembly on the stock. This is how you get the mechanical advantage to reduce the pull weight. The Rope Cocking Aid allows you to half the draw weight at the expense of doubling the draw distance.

If you have any questions please see the Owners Manual or the instruction manual that comes with the Rope Cocking Aid.

Here's another rope cocker tip you might try. Once you are sure you have everything in the right place, take all the slack you can out of the rope. By this I mean to the point you have to pull the bow string back a few inches to get the 2nd hook on it. This will make life soooo much easier, lol. You won't run out of arms as fast, lol.

There should be an instruction manual specific to the Rope Cocking Aid inside the box that the Rope Cocker came in.

If you didn't receive the instruction manual please pm me and I will email you the manual to the Rope Cocking Aid as a pdf.

Yes I Do Thank Urban For His Time To Help Me .not Trying To Stir Up Anything,but The Barnett Rep. Needs To Read The Instructional Manual That Comes With The Predator Xbow On Cocking. There Is Nothing About Using A Cocking Rope, An No Instructions With The Cocking Rope Sent With The Xbow. Thanks Bryan:)

Bryan,

I am sorry that you did not receive the directions for the Rope Cocking Device. These instructions should have been in the box or bag that held the RCD within the Predator box. The instructions for the rope cocker are not included in the Manual specific to the Predator.

I would be glad to Email you a pdf copy of the instructions if you PM me your email address. If you can't PM me I would be glad to mail you a copy of the directions. Please provide me with your contact information.
