Crossbow starting tips

How does the trigger of a crossbow work?

Opens the lock’s lid (holding the chord in the lock) up or down? - higher quality trigger systems open up, not necessariliy meaning that those opening down are less precise, but mostly they have a higher draw weight due to the more simple construction of the entire system.

From which material is the trigger system manufactured? - Hardened steelparts or low-grade sheet steel, plastic or die-casting parts?

Do stronger draw forces (draw weights) affect the trigger system negative, meaning an increase of the draw weights?
