a. Repair. Repair an attachment loop requiring restitching as follows:
(1) Use a heavy-duty sewing machine to restitch any loose or broken stitches.
(2) Restitch over original stitch pattern using nylon thread, size 3. Overstitch 112inch to lock stitches.
b. Replacement. Replace a damaged or missing attachment loop as follows:
(1) Cut a 20-inch length of 1 314-inch wide type VIII, cotton webbing, and wax ends.
(2) Using a marking aid, mark webbing length at a point 5 inches from each end (figure 2-35), and 6 1/2
inches from each end on opposite side.
(3) Between two 5-inch marks made in (2) above, roll 1/2-inch of each webbing edge in to center of webbing
width and allow webbing edges to overlap. Using a heavy duty sewing machine with size 3 nylon thread,
secure overlapped webbing edges to webbing length by stitching a single row of stitching along the
center of webbing overlap and 1 1/2-inches along each rolled edge beyond point of edge overlap (A,
figure 2-35). Stitching will be 5 to 8 stitches per inch, using the specifics in Table 2-3.
(4) Pass one webbing end through vent lines and join webbing ends together above vent lines with a 5 inch-
long overlap (B, figure 2-35). Insure the webbing length encircles all vent lines.
