The lid cover has a concaved area from the interior side bulging to the exterior of the lid that encases the sights or scope of the crossbow. The case fastens together by several latches that are hinged to the lid cover, and back catch the top of the hull base compartment to form a secure closed crossbow hard case. The crossbow is secured in position by 3 adjustable buckle straps and one velcro strap. The foot cocking bar rests on a foam padded bench within the hull base compartment, while the stock rests between two removable storage boxes that velcro in and out of place. The crossbow can be fully assembled with a scope, open sights, and quiver with arrows while secured in hard case. The interior side of the lid cover also has foam block holders for extra arrows, while the hull base contains removable storage boxes that store accessories.
