How to Adjust a Scott Archery Dual-Caliper Trigger Pull


Scott Archery produces release aids for all types of archery. Among the release aid options are single-caliper, double-caliper and string loop. Double-caliper release aids feature a dual-jaw design – two movable parts that open and close around the bow string – made for bows with a string loop. One of the innovations on double-caliper release aids is an adjustable head length and trigger pull. Every archer, depending on the level of expertise and sensitivity requirements, can adjust the trigger pull to match these demands.

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.

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.

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.


Always start with a decreased sensitivity level until you feel comfortable with the Scott Archery release aid and bow.


Always be aware of your surroundings while shooting a bow.
