Installing Attaching Tie. Install attaching tie as follows:
Cut a 30-inch length of ticket No. 5 waxed cotton thread and double the thread length.
Pass the looped end of the doubled thread length around the centerfold of the log record and form a slip
loop on the outside at the log record top (A, figure 2-1).
Pass the thread length running ends through the corner attaching hole from the front cover of the log
record (B, figure 2-1) and insure the running ends are routed over that part of the thread length located
along the log record centerfold (C, figure 2-1).
Complete the attachment tie by making a half hitch on top of the slip loop made in (2) above.
Thread one running end of the log record attachment tie in a tacking needle and pass the tacking needle
with attached thread end through the edge binding of the applicable parachute log record/inspection
Remove the thread end from the tacking needle and make a finished 10-inch-long log record attaching
loop by securing the two thread ends together with an overhand knot.
Insert the log record into the pocket and secure the record within the pocket using the pocket flap and
applicable type flap fastener.
