Default Handy little gizmo -thanks tbh!

This tripod is up amongst nothing but spindly limbs - nowhere to hang a bow -so Iíve been holding it in my lap. I remembered somebody posting this idea to keep it from sliding off. Attached to a belt loop. Simple and works great!

Great idea. My rides in my lap most the time also and I’ve almost lost it a few times, from sliding off my knees.

Genius! Thanks I almost dropped my bow the other day in a tripod. It went forward and I caught it, when I did the arrow catapulted over my head and behind me.

That should disqualify any kill for using a mechanical device on a trad bow.

There goes your chance at a book deer.

I sew a sweater hook on the fly of my pants and hook my string to it.
