My System Specs

Default Xigmatek crossbow plate is slightly twisted

Xigmatek crossbow plate is slightly twisted. On even surface it rocks as two opposite ends are slightly higher than the other two (1-1.5 mm).

It should not be a problem, right?

I'd recon under the spring load it will take shape however tight I will screw in the bolts (I tried to untwist it with hands, it springs back to twisted shape).

How tight the screws should go in? Hand tight? Little wrench supplied tight?

It is my first backplate/screw mount. Trying to get the thing right the first time.
