a. Repair. Restitch broken or loose stitching according to original construction details, using the procedures
in paragraph 2-1 9.
b. Replacement. Replace an unserviceable attaching loop (bridle loop) by fabricating as follows:
(1) Cut a 30-inch-length of 1 3/4-inch wide, type X cotton webbing and wax the ends.
(2) Pass one end of the webbing length through the canopy vent lines and join the webbing ends
together above the vent lines with a 5-inch-long overlap (figure 2-105). Insure the webbing encircles
all the canopy vent lines.
(3) Beginning at a point 1/8 inch back from one overlapped webbing end, secure the overlapped ends
together by stitching a 4 3/4-inch long three-point-WW-stitch formation to a point 1/8 inch back from
the opposite overlapped webbing end (figure 2-105). Stitching will be made in accordance with para.
2-18 using a heavy-duty sewing machine and size 3 nylon thread. Stitching will be 5 to 8 stitches per
inch, using the specifics in table 2-3.
(4) Remove the original canopy attaching loop (bridle loop) from around the canopy vent lines by cutting
the loop webbing.
