Band Installation

This band installation guide will go over setup of your slingshot and knowledge to make sure you safely and correctly use your new Ocularis™ slingshot.

Ocularis band attachment system remains one of the most flexible and simple band attachments out there for your slingshot.

This banding system is available on several SimpleShot slingshots and allows fine tuning of band placement. We call it "dial-a-fork" because you can place your bands in TTF, OTT and anywhere in-between!

This is a very simple band attachment, but don't get it wrong. When installed improperly, Ocularis plugs will not work (but that's true of most things, right: install it wrong and it won't work)!

Let's get started.

Flatband Installation

Plugs install on SHOOTER SIDE. Bands wrap AROUND the frame.

Step 2 Option A

Install bearing securely into plug, then press the plug into the frame.

Step 2 Option B

Step 3

Installing Tubes With Ocularis Plugs

Step 1.

Place looped tube through the frame from the SHOOTER side. The loop should be on the TARGET side.

Step 2.

Install bearing securely into plug, then position the loop around the plug with the tubes in the grooves.

Step 3.

Firmly press the plug into the Ocularis frame, pulling the tubes from the shooter side to seat the plug.

Important Ocularis Plugs Instructions!

Never pull tubes AROUND the frame.

Never pull flatbands THROUGH the frame.

Plugs should not be on the target side with flatbands.

Check your bands before every use.

The Lanyard

A simple piece of paracord that attaches to the handle of your Axiom frame and secures the slingshot to your frame-holding hand.
