I'm looking for words that describe the rope that hangs from a bell in a bell tower.
ADDED: This isn't so much about where the word would be used as it is trying to identify examples or variations from literature or other reference to the item.
The nautical reference below is one scenario where there might be other terms to fit the description. I thought there may also be a reference from the religious sector (though Bell Rope and Bell Pull seem to fit here).
I would even be interested in slang as noted below, "Go jig the bell". Thanks for that.
