Hi Guys,
Sorry, been offsite for a couple weeks.
Attached you will find a cad drawing for the roller option on your TS370. The most important dimension is the hole location. I highly recommend a three flute spiral point tap and lubricated with oil when tapping.
Any questions? Reply and I'll get back to you. If you are not able to make rollers or screws then let me know. I can spin some up for a nominal cost.

Enjoy

FD, The is flat out amazing. Barnett forum has some high octane people to support xbows like the TS370. I would imagine this could work on the new TS380 if it has the same style rail stock.

I don't have a 390 myself but from what others have shared it is identical.

If you are referring to the "Red Lever" depending on the make of crossbow: 1)Barnett has a system that squeezing the lever, pops up the cheek piece for installing the crank cocking device. Once cocked, remove the device and close the cheek piece.
Other brands of crossbows use either a lever or button to extend the rear stock section. A longer armed person may require the stock extended, where as a shorter arm person requires a shorter stock length. Switching from heavier to lighter clothes or vice versa during the day as temperature changes would be another advantage.

All the best.

Here is a picture of Barnett's Crank Cocking Device that is supposed to work on their TS370 and TS390 crossbows. My opinion, it is a very poor design because as you increase the cocking (nearing the fully cocked position) it puts a lot of downward pressure on the bowstring and serving.

This system is much steeper than the one designed for the Ghost 410. One wants a design that pulls straight back like the rope cocker.

I agree 100% with bunnyrabbit's assessment. The severe angle also forces the CCD string to rub on the outside edges of the grab hook rollers causing excessive wear. That is why I'm planning on installing Farm Deer's roller mod.

Here is the system that my newly acquired 2019 Carbon Express F-Force 390 Pile Driver uses. It plugs into a + near the top butt end of the stock. One can stop cranking anywhere. Once the crossbow is cocked, press the button forward to the uncocked position and turn the crank a turn backwards which relieves the pressure to remove the hooks. The hooks are installed facing down. There is no way these hooks will jump the rail-stock (barrel). When installing the hooks on the bowstring, they are set tight to the rail-stock. The crank can be used on either side. Once the crossbow is cocked and the hooks removed, just remove this system from where it plugs into the butt end of the stock. On this cross bow, this system pulls straight back like a rope cocker.

This system is far superior to any design Barnett has. If one can build an adapter, this is the system to use.

I have Barnett's system on 4 Barnett crossbows: 2 each Ghost 410, a Barnett Buck Commander BCXtreme 365 Ultra Lite and a 2018 Barnett Droptine STR. The couple of days I had the Barnett Whitetail Hunter Pro STR, I had Barnett's Crank Cocking Device on it. These are identical systems that will work on either of the mentioned Barnett crossbows and they all pull downward and get worse the closer to the fully cocked position, but not as steep as the one mentioned for the TS370, TS390 Barnett crossbows. The reason being the TS370 and TS390 have a different stock design so the crank system can not be mounted higher in the stock like the above mentioned Barnett crossbows.

Barnett's crank cocking device has two separate strings that the knots on the spools must match and the spools have a large pin so they only fit one way.

The Carbon Express uses one string only fed through the crank system, so it automatically pulls even and winds even.

All the best.
