3. The No. 1 person will grasp any two-consecutive suspension lines, one in each hand, and
vigorously shake the first gore.
4. When the gore is free of debris, the No. 1 person passes the line from the right hand to the left
hand and grasps the next consecutive suspension line, in the right hand. The No. 1 person will
shake out each consecutive gore until all suspension lines are held in the left hand, and all gores
are free of debris.
5. Once the gore shaking process is completed, the No. 2 person will slowly raise the suspended
canopy higher as the No. 1 person clears the suspension lines of debris and removes
entanglements, when possible.
6. After the suspension lines have been cleared, the No. 2 person may hold, or temporarily secure,
the pulley rope while the No. 1 person proceeds to clear debris from other parachute components
such as the risers, harness, and pack tray.
