Default What is this called?

I bought this GREAT little devise, but I want to know what it is actually called. I've had it for about a year, and use it instead of my release to draw my bow without an arrow being nocked. You don't have to worry abouta dry fire.
You see it in all shops because they don't trust people with a regular release. IDon't blame them either.I can't even find it in the Cabela's
catalog. I love this thing though.

They're just generally called "No-Dry Fire Tools"

The other styles I've seen look like a set of brass knuckles, one is a machined aluminum type that has the string come in from the back of the "release", the other is plastic andhas a hook but they all accomplish the same thing. They prevent people from looking stupid and damaging bows in a shop or at home.

We always called them a dummy release. We had probably 5-6 of them at the shop I used to help at. It still didn't stop people from dryfiring bows. Our demo XT 2 years ago was dryfired at least 3 times I know of and is still around to this day. The one guy that dryfired it handed the bow to me and ran out of the shop..........lol....[8D]
