Attaching a Nonbreakaway Static Line and the Drogue.
Cut a 12-inch length of type III nylon cord and remove the core threads.
Position the static line breakcord attaching loop at a point above and adjacent to the canopy bridle loop.
Pass one end of the cord length through the canopy bridle loop and center the cord length in the loop.
Pass each end of the cord length through the static line breakcord attaching loop from opposite
directions (figure 2-28) and draw the cord ends tight.
Secure the cord ends together on top of the breakcord attaching loop with a surgeons knot and a
locking knot (figure 2-29). Make an overhand knot in each running end. Trim each tie end at a point 2
inches from the surgeons knot and locking knot.
