Title: Bull rope safety release

Abstract: A bull rope safety release includes two shank pieces which can be joined together to keep a bull rope firmly in place over the body of a bucking bull or bronco. The safety release includes two D-rings which are connected to the bull rope and hold the safety release in place. A locking lever in one of the shank pieces has a hook which engages a brace bar in the other shank piece. The other end of the locking lever is connected to a pull cord with a wire or other means. A brace member is centrally disposed inside the body of the first shank and provides a support about which the locking lever rotates when the pull cord is yanked. A second lever is provided inside the second shank piece and can be likewise yanked to disengage the two shank pieces from one another.
