After cocking your crossbow with the ACUslide, you must follow the crank handle backwinding steps to relieve the tension from the cocking strap and to allow the trigger box pin to rest on the Trigger Lock-Latch.

Failure to relieve this tension may result in inconsistent arrow flight and will negatively affect your down field accuracy. 

Failure to complete these steps may also prevent the Arrow Retention Brush from securely holding the arrow in place, resulting in the arrow sliding forward on the barrel if the crossbow is pointed downward. 

Please watch the video How To Cock and De-Cock Your Crossbow Using the ACUslide System for detailed instructions regarding this critical step.
