(2) Make a 1/2-inch foldunder on each end of tape length.
(3) Center and fold tape lengthwise over edge of the damaged area. Secure splice by stitching a boxstitch
formation, 1l16-inch in from each edge, along full length of splice material, using a medium-duty sewing
machine. Stitching will be 7 to 11 stitches per inch, using size FF nylon thread.
