b. Rigger Rolling. Parachute assemblies will be rigger rolled prior to being sent to or returned from a parachute repair
activity for ease of handling to prevent suspension line entanglement. Rigger roll a parachute as follows:
Place the parachute in proper layout and apply partial tension.
Grasp the right and left suspension line groups. Using a fast circular motion, flip each of the two gore groups up
and to the center radial seam. Tighten each gore group roll by hand, bring both rolled gore groups together at
the center radial seam (A, figure 2-75).
Release tension and disconnect the canopy vent from the vent attaching device.
Fold the canopy vent down between the rolled gore groups to a point within 18 inches of the canopy skirt lower
Beginning at the folded upper end of the canopy, roll the canopy tightly toward the canopy skirt (B, figure 2-75)
Ensure the width of the rolled canopy does not exceed the width of the parachute deployment bag.
Continue rolling the canopy toward the lower end of the suspension lines and risers, locating the lines and riser
webbing around the center of the roll (C, figure 2-75).
Disconnect the suspension lines/risers from the attaching device and place the rolled canopy assembly on top of
the deployment bag.
Secure the rolled canopy assembly within the confines of the bag using a suitable type cord (D, figure 2-75).
