Repair. Repair an attachment loop requiring restitching as follows:
Use a heavy-duty sewing machine to restitch any loose or broken stitches.
Restitch over original stitch pattern using nylon thread, size 3. Overstitch 1/2 inch to lock stitches.
Replace. Replace a damaged or missing attachment loop as follows:
Cut a 20-inch length of 1 3/4-inch wide, Type VIII, cotton webbing and wax ends.
Using a marking aid, mark webbing length at a point 5 inches from each end (figure 2-34) and 61/2 inches
from each end on opposite side.
Between two 5-inch marks made in (2) above, roll 112 inch of each webbing edge in to center of webbing
width and allow webbing edges to overlap. Using a heavy duty sewing machine and 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 2-34).
Stitching will be 5 to 8 stitches per inch.
Pass one webbing end through vent lines and join webbing ends together above vent lines with a 5-inch long
overlap (B, figure 2-34). Ensure the webbing length encircles all vent lines.
