Replacement. Replace an unserviceable individual riser strap, a spreader bar, or the entire riser assembly by
fabricating as follows (refer to figure 2-55):
Prior to disconnecting a riser strap from the suspension lines, temporarily secure the
applicable suspension line group to prevent disarrangement by passing a suitable length of
1/4 inch type I cotton webbing through the loops on the lower end of the suspension lines
and tying the webbing ends together.
Left riser strap.
Remove the riser clevis from the lower end of the affected riser strap and retain the clevis for further
use, if serviceable.
Remove the parachute inspection data pocket (log record pocket) by cutting the tacking at four points.
Retain the pocket for further use, if serviceable.
At the upper end of the riser strap, cut the stitching which secures the suspension line reinforcement to
the strap and remove the reinforcement.
Remove the suspension line from the upper end of the riser strap by cutting the stitching which secures
the lower end of suspension line to the riser strap.
Place the line groups separately to one side and insure the lines do not become mixed or entangled
during the removal process.
Cut the stitching which secures the applicable spreader bar end loop to the damaged riser strap and
remove the riser strap by pulling the strap through the spreader bar end loop.
Cut a 60 inch and a 6-inch length of type VI nylon webbing and sear the ends.
