b. Splicing. Splice damaged radial tape as follows:
(1) Place canopy on a repair table with damaged side of radial tape facing up and smooth out canopy
material in affected area.
Radial webbing may be spliced one time, providing the damaged area does not
exceed 12-inches in length. Webbing splices may be applied to either or both
sides of radial seam.
(2) Cut a length 1-inch wide nylon tape, long enough to extend 12-inches beyond each side of damaged area
and sear ends as specified in paragraph 2-18.
(3) Center webbing length over damaged area. Using a light duty sewing machine and size E thread, secure
splice by stitching 7 to 11 stitches per inch the full length of splice (figure 2-42).
