Assistive Device Invented by InventHelp Client to Help Handicapped Hunters and Sportsmen (KSC-1118)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is submitting the Sling Holder to companies in the hopes of their good faith review.

An inventor from Lincoln, Mo., had lost both hands in an accident and needed a means of stabilizing his rifle on his shoulder while hunting. As such, he designed the Sling Holder – an accessory that would enable him to more easily hold, aim, and fire his weapon.

The Sling Holder provides a means of supporting the butt stock of a rifle on a handicapped sportsman’s shoulder. This allows him to effectively hunt or engage in target shooting with limited assistance. The unit also absorbs recoil, which enhances comfort, and can accommodate the butt stocks of shotguns and cross bows.

The inventor developed this product out of necessity. "After losing both hands, I was fitted with prosthetic hooks, and while the hooks allowed me to do many tasks, I still found it difficult to hold a rifle against my shoulder,” said the inventor.

“This accessory stabilizes a rifle’s butt stock against the shoulder, which allows a disabled sportsman to easily hold and accurately fire his weapon."

The original design was submitted to the Kansas City office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
