(4) Splicing. Each of the two riser straps and the spreader may be spliced one time as follows:
Splicing will be performed on a left riser when the damaged area extends into the parachute inspection data pocket (log
record pocket). When this occurs, a log record pocket from stock will be installed in this location in accordance with
procedures in paragraph 2-33.
(a) Cut a length of 1 23/32-inch wide Type VIII nylon webbing long enough to extend 4 inches beyond each
side of damaged area and sear ends (para 2-18)
(b) Center webbing length over damaged area (figure 2-60). Using a heavy duty sewing machine and size 3 nylon
thread, secure each end of splice by stitching a 3-inch long, three-point WW stitch formation, 1/8 inch in from each side
edge of splice material. Overstitch each end of splice material by one stitch on each point of stitch formation. Stitching
shall be 5 to 8 stitches per inch.
