Get to know your Scout LT™ Slingshot

This owners manual will go over setup of your Scout LT™ slingshot, and show you how to safely and properly set up and use your slingshot.

Keep scrolling for the video owners manual that covers setup demonstration!

The Shooter Side

This is the side of the Scout LT that will face you as you shoot.

The Target Side

This is the side of the Scout LT that will face the target as you shoot.

FlipClipsX for Scout LT

The FlipClips hold the bandset in OTT or TTF configuration. No swapping left and right.

OTT (Over The Top)

Band orientation where you shoot the ammo over the top of the forks. (FlipClips hold the band to the TOP of the frame.)

TTF (Through The Forks)

Band orientation where you shoot the ammo through the forks. (FlipClips hold the band to the SIDE of the frame.)

The Lanyard

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

Do not shoot stones or rocks from any slingshot.

Rocks - no matter how round they look – shoot erratically and shooting them may damage your slingshot and bands.

Due to the uncontrollable nature of shooting non-spherical projectiles, shooting a rock from a SimpleShot slingshot voids any / all warranties.


Step one: Install your Scout LT™ Scales

Your Scout LT is designed to be slim and awesome even without scales.

To add the scales follow these simple steps.

Place the scales on the frame. 

They are interchangeable but designed as shown with the screw on the back (target side).

Place the screw into the scales. 

Take a moment to make sure it's seated centered in the hole.

Screw in the fastener. Use ample pressure to cut the material on the first attachment. 

Again, make sure you're centered to not cross-thread the scale!

Step two: Install the Lanyard

It is critical to always have the lanyard securely wrapped around the wrist when shooting. Serious injury can result from improper use, so make sure you ALWAYS install and use the lanyard when shooting your slingshot!

Thread one end of the lanyard through the hole in the end of the slingshot frame.

Bring both ends together evenly to form a loop in the lanyard material.

Then, tie a simple overhand knot with BOTH tag ends of the lanyard. This simple knot is plenty strong.

Adjust knot placement to fit your wrist size BEFORE tightening the knot.

Adjust the position of the knot to vary size of the lanyard to fit your wrist. Then pull tightly on the two ends to secure the knot.

Make sure the knot is secure before using the lanyard.

The lanyard should firmly but not tight. It should be secure enough to prevent the frame from ever slipping from your hand.

ALWAYS wear the lanyard securely when shooting!

Get to know FlipClipsX™ for your Scout LT™

Every FlipClip has a "tooth."

This upper side of the clip is slightly larger and less round. Only use this side to grip the band.

FlipClip X for Scout LT are interchangeable.

The logos goes toward the band. But there's no left or right component for LT!

For TTF configuration:

The logos should be on the SIDE with the bands around the sides.

For OTT configuration:

The logos should be on the TOP with the bands over the top.

Step three: Install your FlipClipsX™

First, decide whether you will be installing your bands OTT or TTF.

Don't know which to use? Try both, starting with OTT. Remember, the clips are interchangeable for the Scout LT™.

Step 1.

Place FlipClip with logos facing OUT for TTF and UP for OTT.

Step 2.

Place the band into the groove of the frame and under the "tooth" of the FlipClip.

Step 3A.

Tighten the fastener until hand tight. (Shown OTT tightened with screwdriver).

Step 3B.

Same for TTF. Here it's shown using a large washer. Use a coin or the back of your knife as well.

In step 3A & 3B, No need to tighten very hard. Be careful to not damage the band material as tighten your FlipClips.

Important Scout Instructions

The screw heads must go on the shooter side, NOT the target side! The Clips will be on the target side with the bands wrapping around the frame.

Check your bands before every use. Give them a good stretch BEFORE you bring the slingshot up into shooting posture.

And now, watch the video to see it in action!
