Cut a length of type III nylon cord 36-inches longer than the length of the original suspension line.
Position one end of the cord length on the applicable connector link assembly in the original
suspension line location.
Secure the cord end to the connector link with two half-hitches, leaving a 6-inch long tie free end.
Trace the replacement line length and an adjacent suspension line from the connector link assembly
to the canopy skirt and allow both lines to settle under equal tension.
Using a suitable marking aid, mark the replacement line at the point of intersection with the lower
edge of the lower lateral band.
After marking, apply slight tension to the replacement line and adjacent suspension line to check the
accuracy of the mark.
