Letting Down: At full draw, let up on and push the safety all the way into its fully closed position. You can then let down safely. Make sure the safety if fully engaged prior to letting down or the release will fire.
Maintenance: The only maintenance you may need is to keep the safety lubricated at the pivot pin to ensure smooth consistent action. Dealing with flinches and misfires: Set the release to fire several pounds over the holding weight. Continue to adjust the release until it is heavy enough that it will not fire on a “glitch”, jerk or flinch by the archer. You may have to set the firing tension quite high when first starting out. Once the release will not fire on a flinch, work on just pulling to set it off. As it gets harder to make the release fire, start lowering the firing tension a little at a time. Keep it heavy enough so it will not fire on glitches or jerks. In time, you will be able to steadily reduce the tension to a functional firing weight and shoot normally.
