a. Stitching. Stitch and restitch broken or loose stitching with size 3-nylon thread which matches the
color of the original stitching, when possible. Lock all straight stitching by backstitching at least 1/2
inch. Restitch by overstitching each end of the stitch formation by 1/2 inch. Restitch directly over
the original stitching, following the original stitch pattern as closely as possible. Stitch according to
para. 2-19 and table 2-3.
b. Splicing. A horizontal strap may be spliced an unlimited number of times as follows:
(1) Cut a length of 1 23/32-inch wide, type VI II nylon webbing long enough to extend 4 inches beyond
each side of the damaged area and sear the ends.
(2) Center the webbing length over the damaged area and secure the splice by stitching a 4-inch long
three-point-WW-stitch on each end of the splice material. Overstitch each end by 1/8 inch. In
addition, make a row of stitching 3/16 inch in along each side of the splice material (figure 2-131).
Stitching will be made using a heavy-duty sewing machine and size 3 nylon thread, 5 to 8 stitches
