A320 L/G not downlocked

When the gear is not downlocked, QRH asks for the landing gear to be recycled. The FCOM says "L/G lever recycling consist to select quickly the L/G lever to UP then DOWN".

I always thought recycle the gear meant select gear up, wait for it to be up and locked, then select down again.

I release the airbus procedure is merely to change to the other LGCIU, but I would have thought it wouldn't be good for the gear if it's going up then suddenly changed to down again. Any thoughts?
