5. Carefully cut the zig-zag stitching loose from the suspension line. If the line is cut, the suspension line
must be replaced. Butt the ends of the vertical cord of the new netting to the end of the cut vertical
cord on the suspension line. Using a light-duty zig-zag sewing machine, 5 to 8 stitches per inch, 1/8-
inch wide throw, start zig-zag stitch ½-inch from new netting material. Stitch on the suspension line
and ½-inch beyond the end.
If the net section requires replacement, remove the damaged area as follows:
1. Cut the vertical cords close to the top cord sewn to the lower lateral band.
2. Cut the horizontal cords, except for the top cord; leave one square length plus 1-inch on the outside of
the suspension line, where possible.
3. Spread the new piece of netting over the removed section, with the top horizontal cord place below the
old cord sewn to the lower lateral band.
Avoid removal of vertical net cord from suspension line, if possible.
When replacement vertical net cord must be sewn to suspension
line, the old cord shall be carefully removed.
If there is insufficient horizontal cord on the inside of the suspension
lines of the section being replaced to attach the replacement net, the
horizontal net cords may be placed across the suspension line and
sewn to other cords on each side of the suspension line. Sew a
minimum of one inch by skipping over the suspension line or sewing
cords together for 2-inches in the adjacent section and the section
