(2) Cut a 8-inch length of 1-inch-wide, type IV nylon webbing and a 3-inch length of 1 112- inch-wide, type IV
nylon webbing. Sear ends of both webbing lengths according to paragraph 2-19.
(3) Make a 1/2-inch-long turnunder on each end of 3-inch webbing length and position folded webbing in original

each outside edge (A, figure 2-64) using a medium-duty sewing machine. Stitching will be 7 to 11 stitches
per inch, using size FF nylon thread.
