During the process of tracing each control line/cascade line, half twists are
Check each control line to ensure that it is not misrouted by following the base line of the control
line from the canopy-attaching loop down to the toggle.
Grasp the base line of the control lines at the attaching loop again and using thumb and forefinger
trace the base line down to the 3rd finger trap ensuring there are no full twists.
k. Trace each cascade line attached to the base line ensuring there are no full twists and that each
line is attached to the appropriate corresponding attaching loop.
Starting with line 1C trace the line to the bar tack using the thumb and forefinger and remove all
twist. Trace line 1D from the bar tack to the canopy-attaching loop then continue tracing line 1C
from the bartack to the canopy-attaching loop.
m. Using procedures from step l., above, trace lines 2C and 2D through 8C and 8D.
n. Starting with line 1A, trace the line up to the bar tack using thumb and forefinger and remove all
twists. Trace line 1B from the bar tack to the canopy-attaching loop the continue tracing line 1A
to the canopy-attaching loop.
o. Using procedures in step n., above, trace lines 2A and 2B, 3A and 3B, 6A and 6B, 7A and 7B,
and 8A and 8B.
p. Lines 4A and 5A are continuous. Trace each line from the connector link to the canopy attaching
loops ensuring there are no full twists and that line 4A and 5A are attached to the nose of the
5. Using 7/16-inch open-end wrench, tighten barrel nut on connector links ¼ turn past hand tight.
