a. Repair. 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. Replacement. Replace a damaged cluster tie webbing by fabricating as follows:
Remove the original cluster tie webbing length by cutting the stitching which secures the tie
webbing to the bag horizontal end strap.
Cut a 26-inch length of 1 23/32-inch wide, type XIl nylon webbing and sear the ends.
Using a suitable marking aid, mark the webbing length at a point 6 inches from one end.
Beginning on the opposite end of the webbing length and working to the 6-inch mark made in
(3), above, fold the webbing edges in toward the center of the webbing width and overlap the
edges by 1/4 inch. Secure the overlapped webbing edges by stitching an 18 1/4-inch long row
of stitching according to original construction details and figure 2-137. Stitching will be made
with a heavy-duty sewing machine using size 3 nylon thread, 5 to 8 stitches per inch.
Position the non-folded end of the webbing length in the original strap location on the horizontal
bag end strap. Secure the webbing end by stitching a 6 1/2-inch long double-X-box-stitch to
original construction details and figure 2-137. Stitching will be made with a heavy-duty sewing
machine using size 3 nylon thread, 5 to 8 stitches per inch.
