Restencil. As required, restencil identification marking using procedures in paragraph 2-19.
Splicing. Each of the two riser straps and the spreader bar may be spliced one time as follows:
Splicing will be performed on a left riser when the damaged area extends into the parachute
inspection data pocket (log record pocket). When this occurs, a log record pocket from
stock will be installed in this location in accordance with procedures in paragraph 2-32.
Cut a length of type VI nylon webbing long enough to extend 2 inches beyond each side of damaged
area and sear ends (para. 2-18).
Center webbing length over damaged area (figure 2-54). Using a heavy duty sewing machine and size 3
nylon thread, secure each end of splice by stitching a single-X-box-stitch formation, with two double
ends, 1/8 inch in from each side edge of splice material. Overstitch each end of splice material by one
stitch on each point of stitch formation. Stitching shall be 5 to 8 stitches per inch.
