THE SCOUT LT™ OWNERS MANUAL
The Scout LT is our most versatile slingshot yet.
This manual will go over setup of your slingshot and knowledge to make sure you safely and correctly use your Scout LT.
We'll go over setup of the frame, FlipClips and bands.
We've also got a video owners manual that covers all this so you can watch it happen!
GET TO KNOW YOUR SCOUT LT™ SLINGSHOT
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.
FlipClip X 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.)
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.
SCOUT LT™ SLINGSHOT SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
Setting up the frame - Installing the lanyard
It is critical to always have the lanyard securely wrapped around the wrist when shooting. Serious injury can result from improper use.
STEP 1. Thread one end of the lanyard through the hole in the end of the Scout LT frame.
(Same with scales or no scales).
STEP 2. Tie a simple overhand knot with BOTH tag ends of the lanyard.
Adjust knot placement to tighten or loosen the lanyard.
STEP 3. Pull tightly to secure the knot (adjust the position of the knot to vary size of the lanyard.
Make sure the knot is secure.
STEP 4. Give it a good pull to seat the knot. Check the lanyard to make sure it is secure and ALWAYS use the lanyard when shooting.
SCOUT LT™ SLINGSHOT PALMSWELL SCALE SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
Setting up the frame - Installing the scales
These optional scales allow you to adjust the grip of your Scout LT and add some color!
Your Scout LT is designed to be slim and awesome even with no 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!
GET TO KNOW FLIPCLIP X™ FOR SCOUT LT™
Make sure you understand how FlipClips work for the best experience!
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.
NEXT, INSTALL YOUR FLIPCLIP X ON YOUR SCOUT SLINGSHOT
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 Scout LT.
Place FlipClip with logos facing OUT for TTF and UP for OTT.
Place the band into the groove of the frame and under the "tooth" of the FlipClip.
Tighten the fastener until hand tight. No need to tighten very hard. (Shown OTT tightened with screwdriver).
Same for TTF. Here it's shown using a large washer. Use a coin or the back of your knife as well.
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.
