During a haul, a short lower of the victim may be required for a variety of reasons.
A short lower should be done by simply lifting the cam, without deactivating the progress capture function.
Warning: be sure you can hold the load before lifting the cam: if it takes a lot of effort to haul, you risk being unable to control the descent. In this case, add some friction or make a knot in the rope where it exits the haul system to limit the risk of letting the load slip.
Do a gentle pull while simultaneously lifting the cam with the thumb.
Warning: do not push on the button to avoid accidentally deactivating the progress capture function.
Hold the cam up with the thumb and brake the descent with the other hand.
