10. Altering Loop Size. If the locking stow loops on a cotton deployment bag do not conform to the
dimensions shown in the illustrations on the previous page, the loops may be enlarged by alteration as
a. Cut and remove the stitching from the inside of the front loop to the bag edge reinforcement webbing
and from the inside of the edge of the suspension line protector flap. Ensure no material damage is
incurred during the cutting process.
b. To ensure the loop webbing does not pull away from the deployment bag, stitch a 1 ½-inch square,
single-X box stitch formation, with one double end through the bag edge reinforcement webbing and
the end of the locking stow loop webbing. Refer to the details in the illustration below. Use a heavy-
duty sewing machine and size 6 nylon thread. Stitching will be 5 to 8 stitches per inch, in accordance
with WP 0014 00, SEWING PROCEDURES.
