English term or phrase: send to the beat
I have a question about a potential idiom, or perhaps a more field specific use of the phrase "to send [something] to the beat". The context is as follows:

"Insert the gasket, following the direction (see picture) using wooden pieces to send it to the beat."

This concerns a jack (resembling a piston) in an elevator.
