Figure 2-40. Radial Tape Restitching Details.
Splicing. Splice damaged radial tape as follows:
Place canopy on a repair table with damaged side of radial tape facing up and smooth out canopy
material in affected area.
Radial tape may be spliced one time providing the damaged area does
not exceed 12 inches in length. Tape splices may be applied to either or
both sides of radial seam.
Cut a length of Type IV, 1-inch wide nylon webbing, long enough to extend 12 inches beyond each side
of damaged area and sear ends as specified in para. 2-19.
Center webbing length over damaged area. Using a light duty sewing machine and size E nylon thread,
secure splice by stitching 7 to 11 stitches per inch splice for full length of splice (figure 2-41).
