The stob is a built on part of the rope pulley with the hook for the forks at the other end of the pulley. Its around 6in long, and, rather, does the same thing, entering the hole at the bottom of the carrier.
Someone said that the catch always worked perfect. Well, maybe, but consider this
When the forks are stabbed into a bunch of hay, and the horse or tractor heads away from the barn, rope hooked to single tree or drawbar, The rope pulley and forks HAVE to go up. When they reach the carrier, they HAVE to enter the carrier. WHEN thats happened nothing can stop the carrier from going into the barn. How far depends on someone hollering WHOA, and the horse or tractor stopping. At that point, the only function of the trip rope is to release the hay from the forks. Once thats done, and if the barn has a big cable running from the top of the barn down and out to a couple of posts as grandad had, and THAT cable has a couple rocks attached to it by a clevis and those rocks attached by a small cable to the carrier as dad and grandad had OR the hay rail is slanted downwards towards the barn, when the horse or tractor is backed up, the carrier has to go towards the front of the barn. Once it hits the stop at the end of the hay rail, and with horse or tractor still backing up, the rope pulley has to drop, effectively releaseing it from the bottom of the carrier. It then desends down to the rack for another load.
DANG< And at 64 I thought I was too young to remember all this lol.
DISCLAIMER. This only works on front end of barn, with rack outside. Not to barns that are center loaded with rack inside
