I did some fine tuning... Made better grip for the handle.
Ready for transport...

Here is one more, very important, improvement to design of Easy Loader. It makes attaching the Loader to the speargun much more easier.
The force (F) now is acting parallel to the spear, at Distance = R + diameter of Dyneema, independently of the angle of Dyneema attached to the speragun. R is the radius (OD/2) of the winch shaft. This parallel acting force makes possible to have less wraps around the spear to prevent bowing because the unwraps are slower.

.

The video shows how could be the Dyneema attached to the speargun and how to remove it after using the Loader.

It is very inconvenient to be in the water without support under your feet to load a gun like that! The idea is great, but in my opinion it needs a stationary location on a muzzle with a folding collar!

Zahar, it is easier to use it in water. Here is a video of a Spanish guy from 2011. He already have two Easy Loaders.



This was me using the Loader in water:



Good location on muzzle is preferable.

Salvimar don't appear to have an extended loader in their catalogue. They may be interested in an Easy Loader for their “Predathor” guns, especially as the two line hooks on either side of the front nose cone provide a swelling to anchor against. A moulded plastic half circle with a cord wrap could clip into the line hook holes to provide a stable anchor point for the loader. The holes would only act as a locator to index the plastic anchor which would bear on the nose cone itself.

No, I suppose Tekel was the only one who made his version of Easy loader presenting the image of it.
where did you get the picture, though? I can't find any info or photos on it. Not even clear how it works form that one photo.

Designing a different kind of load assist for band guns. Will post when ready.
