  • Patent number: 11428499
    Abstract: A crossbow may include a bowstring and a string latch that can be moved into a first string latch position that holds the bowstring in a cocked position, a second string latch position that does not hold the bowstring in the cocked position and a third string latch position. To de-cock the crossbow, a de-cock activator may be selectively movable from a first de-cock activator position that prevents the string latch from being moved into the third string latch position into a second de-cock activator position that permits the string latch to be moved into the third string latch position. When the string latch is in the first string latch position and the de-cock activator is in the second de-cock activator position: the string latch may be selectively movable into the third string latch position and then the second string latch position permitting de-cocking of the crossbow.
