EXTRACTION LINE PANEL 0007 00
STOWING 60 FOOT SIX LOOP EXTRACTION LINE TO EXTRACTION LINE PANEL
2. Stow extraction line.
a. Separate extraction line into two groups of six plies each and wrap each group with piece of 8 x 16-inch
cotton muslin cloth at point immediately above 5-foot mark on extraction line.
b. Secure wrapped plies together at each end with two turns of single ¼-inch wide type I cotton webbing
tie with surgeons knot and locking knot (figure 2).
The extraction line must be firmly secured to the panel to prevent
slippage and damage during deployment.
c. Pass running ends of 36-inch length of ½-inch tubular nylon webbing previously installed on panel
between wrapped plies, pass each running end in opposite directions, down and under stow loop and back
to top of extraction line. Secure running ends on top of extraction line with surgeons knot, locking knot,
and overhand knot on running ends (figure 3).
Ensure that the extraction line stows are evenly distributed and do not
extend beyond the left and right edge of the panel. Do not secure ties
until S-Folds are completed.
d. Beginning at lower left corner of bottom panel, make first S-fold/stow of the extraction line and secure
with a previously installed, stow tie (figure 4).
e. Working from left to right, stow and secure the extraction line to panel. Make and secure last stow to
center stow loop at upper edge of panel. Approximately 5-feet of extraction line should extend from upper
edge after last stow is made (figure 5).
