2-16. Packing the 64-Foot Cargo Parachute, Model G-12D (cont).
(7) Attaching the riser clevis. The manner in which the riser clevis is to be attached to the static line shall
depend upon whether the pilot parachute is packed for breakaway or non-breakaway use. The clevis
attachment procedures for both methods are as follows:
(a) Breakaway static line.
1 Cut a 12-inch length of type III nylon cord and remove the core threads.
2 Center the cord length around the clevis pin and insure the running cord ends are alined. Pass each
running end of the cord length through the static line clevis attaching loop from opposite directions
(figure 2-48) and secure the cord ends on top of the static line attaching loop with a surgeon's knot and
a locking knot. Make an overhand knot-in each running end. Trim each tie end at a point 2 inches
from the surgeon's knot and locking knot.
Figure 2-48. Riser Clevis Attached to Breakaway Static Line.
(b) Non-breakaway static line.
1 Remove the cotter pin from the clevis pin and the clevis pin from the body of the clevis.
2 Position the static line clevis attaching loop between the clevis bottom ends and reinsert the clevis pin
into the clevis body, passing the pin through the clevis attaching loop. Reinstall the safety pin into the
end of the clevis pin (figure 2-49).
