L-bar connecter link assemblies are used on MC1-1C/MC1-1D
personnel parachutes. Quick-fit link assemblies are not to be used
on the MC1-1C/MC1-1D parachute.
Repair an L-bar connecter link assembly as follows:
1. Cleaning. Remove burrs, rough spots, rust, or corrosion from a parachute connector link assembly by
either filing with a metal file or by buffing with a crocus cloth.
2. Replacing a locking screw. Replace a damaged or missing locking screw on a parachute connector
link with a serviceable item from stock.
A parachute connector link assembly, regardless of type, that is damaged beyond repair will be replaced
with a serviceable L-bar parachute connector link assembly from stock. Use the following procedures:
1. Using a suitable sized, flat-tip (slotted-head) screwdriver, remove the two locking screws from the
ends of a replacement L-bar parachute connector link assembly and dissemble the link.
2. Using a suitable sized, flat-tip (slotted-head) screwdriver, remove the two locking screws from the
damaged, original parachute connector link assembly. Disassemble the link assembly, using a link
separator, if necessary. If the connector link contains suspension lines, ensure the lines are not
allowed to slide off the damaged link during the disassembly process.
3. As applicable, position an L-bar, of the replacement link assembly, adjacent to the disassembled
original link assembly; slide the suspension lines from the damaged link onto the replacement link L-
