a. Repair. Replace broken or loose tacking securing the long buffer in the 5-inch-long single attaching loop by
retacking according to original tacking details using one turn double, ticket No. 8/7 waxed cotton thread at each
tacking point. Secure the tacking with a square knot and locking knot. Trim ends to 112 inch.
b. Replacement. Replace a damaged or missing long buffer in 5-inch-long single attaching loop by fabricating as
follows (figure 2-70):
(1) As required, remove original long buffer by cutting tacking securing buffer within loop.
(2) Cut a 7 314-inch length of 1 3/4-inch-wide, type X cotton webbing and wax ends.
(3) Double webbing length and align ends. Secure aligned ends by stitching two rows of stitching across
webbing width according to details in figure 2-70, using a light duty sewing machine. Stitching will be 7 to 11
stitches per inch using size E nylon thread.
(4) Position formed buffer in original long buffer location and secure buffer to attaching loop webbing by hand
tacking at three points using one turn double, size 8/7 waxed cotton thread at each point. Secure tacking
ends at each tacking point with a square knot and locking knot and trim ends to 112-inch.
