e. Insert the 5-inch webbing length under the 16¼-inch webbing length, and pass the webbing length
around the adapter center bar to form a buffer. Extend the bottom end of the buffer webbing ¼-
inch beyond the top end.
Hand tack the buffer tightly to the adjuster panel webbing with two-turns of doubled tape, lacing
and tying. Secure the tacking ends on the bottom side of the adjuster panel webbing with a
square knot; trim the tacking ends to ¼-inch.
