Place the Racking Assist’s Base down on a sturdy, flat, horizontal, non-slick surface with its Center Guide Post pointing upward towards the sky. Remember never have your finger within the Trigger Guard and never point the Muzzle towards any part of your body or anyone else. Align the Pistol’s Muzzle over the Center Guide Post.
Lower the Pistol over the Center Guide Post to where the Front Face of the Pistol’s Slide engages the Outside Shroud of the Racking Assist. Note, while only one hand is illustrated it is acceptable to use both hands for extra control and strength if necessary. Remember! Never allow your Fingers to enter the Inside of the Pistol’s Trigger Guard.
If the Safety/Slide Lock needs to be disengaged for Slide movement disengage it, otherwise have the Safety engaged. Then with one or both hands press the Pistol straight down forcing the Silde to the rear until a positive stop is felt. Then quickly raise the Pistol straight up and off of the Racking Assist.
IF a Loaded Magazine was properly loaded into the Pistol a Round will be chambered when the Slide comes to rest in the forward position. If the Pistol has a Manual Safety engage the Safety if you do not intend to immeditaly fire the Pistol. OR IF No Magazine was in the Pistol the Slide will come to rest in the forward position with No Round being loaded into the Chamber, since No Rounds were present. OR
IF an Empty Magazine was in the Pistol the Slide will be locked to the rear assuming the Pistol was pushed down sufficiently to engage the Slide Lock. If the Empty Magazine does not engage the Slide Stop the user must manually engage the Slide Stop while holding the Pistol down against the Racking Assist.
