c. Pass the snap hook, of the 5-foot extension, through the 3½-inch loop, on the 15-foot static line.
d. Continue passing the snap hook through the 3½-inch loop until a taut girth-hitch is made securing
the 5-foot extension to the 15-foot static line (There will be a half-twist in the 3½-inch loop when
forming the girth-hitch).
4. Technical/rigger-type inspection. Before each parachute is packed by air delivery, it must be given
technical/rigger-type inspection by the packer, in accordance with WP 0009 00.
5. Pack-in-process inspection. A designated supervisory rigger, other than the packer, must perform a
pack-in-process inspection at seven intervals during the packing procedure. The inspection is
performed to ensure that the parachute is packed according to authorized packing procedures (refer
to WP 0009 00).
Throughout this manual, all directions (right, left, upper, lower, top, bottom, clockwise, and
counterclockwise) are given from the riggers point of view, as the rigger stands at the tension plate end of
the packing table, facing the apex-hook end of the table.
