1. Replacing a suspension line. When a suspension line portion of a canopy line is damaged beyond the
limitations for splicing, or the core threads are damaged to any extent, the suspension line will be
replaced. Replace a damaged suspension line from the lower lateral band to the attaching connector link
assembly by fabricating as follows:
Place the canopy assembly in proper layout on a suitable work surface and trace the affected
suspension line from the point of attachment at the lower lateral band to the respective connector link
Remove the lower radial line reinforcement tape at the canopy skirt by cutting the stitching securing
the tape length to the canopy.
Further cut the stitching securing the V-tab and original suspension line together.
Remove the original suspension line by cutting the line length at the applicable connector link
assembly and at the lower edge of the lower lateral band, just above the V-tab.
Secure the loose end of the radial line using temporary tacking or pushpins.
