- When using the cord-tensioner, hook it hooks over the string, setting them the same distance from the rail, and pull up. This method reduces the tensile force in half, but can be uncomfortable because the hands will have to raise much higher tooth of the trigger – almost to the butt plate.
- The boom is mounted on the guide so that it rested in the string and was the rear end under the retaining clip. If this is not done, the lock is a single shot will not allow to shift the trigger.
