How to Adjust a Scott Archery Dual-Caliper Trigger Pull

    Step 1

    Activate the trigger by opening the double-caliper release to expose the set screw for the Trigger Sensitivity Adjustment. Upon activating the trigger, the calipers should be open and the trigger pulled back. Every Scott Archery release aid locates the sensitivity and trigger pull adjustment next to the trigger.

    Step 2

    Turn the set screw clockwise or counter-clockwise, according to the desired level of sensitivity. Turning the screw clockwise will tighten the screw, resulting in decreased sensitivity. To increase the sensitivity level, turn the screw counter-clockwise. Inexperienced or new archers may want a less-sensitive trigger to prevent an unwanted trigger pull. Experienced target shooters may want more sensitivity for a smooth arrow release.

    Step 3

    Close the dual-jaws to set the trigger by pushing the trigger forward and practice activating the trigger to feel the sensitivity. Continue to adjust the Trigger Sensitivity Adjustment based on personal preference. Practice shooting the bow and arrows using the new trigger pull setting with a target at approximately 10 yards.
