First calibration issue

So, I followed the maker made cnc instructions exaclty. (Twice) And whenever I get to this point it seems like I have way too much slack on the chains where it attaches to the bungee. Why is this? Is this normal?

It looks like you have a 10-foot top beam. Is it possible your chains are intended for a 12-foot top beam (i.e., longer than stock chains)?

The bungees that come with the MakerMade kit are too long given their instructions. I shortened them using zip ties and tucking the excess out of the way (intend to eventually go 12’ with a MetalMaslow top bar so I didn’t cut them) after initially seeing what was needed by moving the sled to all 4 corners of the spoil board.
