DAMAGED SUSPENSION LINE
Place suspension lines in proper layout on repair table or repair surface, apply partial tension to
suspension lines, and trace damaged line from connector snap to connector snap.
Replace damaged lines as follows:
1. Cut and remove all stitching that holds suspension line to canopy. Remove other items as required,
allowing entire line to move freely across lateral bands, through V-tabs, and within radial seams. Do
not remove V-tabs unless they are damaged.
2. Cut off damaged line (hereafter referred to as old line) 24-inches below shirt on each side of canopy.
3. Select a spool of type III nylon cord (hereafter referred to as new line), and wax end of new line.
4. Insert waxed end of new line into sheath of old line at least 1-inch, and whipstitch, or otherwise
temporarily secure ends together.
