Figure 2-20. Left Gore Group Fold Complete.
Using left hand, hold line separator and separated lines. Grasp canopy with right hand and pull canopy off
right side of pack table, allowing all folded gores to drape downward to side of table (figure 2-21).
Slide canopy back onto table and rotate suspension lines and line separator one-half turn counterclockwise
which will allow the separator base to rest on the table.
Flip left group of gores to left side of table top and apply additional tension (figure 2-22).
To complete the canopy flatfold, dress the gores and the skirt reinforcement (lower lateral band). Insure
that eight gores are in each gore group and that a clear air channel exists between the two gore groups.
Lay a packing weight across the suspension lines just below the line separator (figure 2-22).
