The first four:

  1. Stance: body turned 90° from target, feet apart for stability, knees slightly bent,
  2. Anchor Position: always the same along jaw line,
  3. Aim: 3-point line from eye along sinew, arrow point and target,
  4. Release: a “light finger shoulder touch” is the best way I can explain it. You have to watch the video.

[Video] Using The Scaffold Hitch For An Improvised Seat

Scaffold Hitch, Bowline Hitch & Double Fisherman Knots

Part of their knot-of-the-week series, ITS Tactical uses a small wood piece to demo the hitch. A finished hanging seat set-up is shown at the end of the video.

One caution: they use paracord for this video tutorial. Don’t. Use other cordage when tying a scaffold hitch. You don’t want the paracord to slip off your weight-bearing board.
