Encyclopedia of historical weapons - Nut

Round pivoted component retained within the stock (tiller) of a crossbow to take the string. It is usually made of solid ivory or stag-horn, and retains the cross-bow string under tension once the latter is drawn back ready to use. When the nut is released by the trigger or trigger-lever, the string is then freed, shooting the bow.
