Mark the 304 ½-inch length of webbing at points 3, 4 ½, and 13-inches from one end.
Form the arming wire attaching loop (1) on the webbing length by folding the marked end of the
webbing back at the 4 ½-inch mark.
Using ZZ sewing machine stitching 7 to 11 stitches per inch, secure the webbing foldback.
Beginning at the 3-inch mark, stitch a 2 15/16-inch long row of ¼-inch wide double throw zigzag
stitching toward the foldback seared end according to the details in the figure below. End the stitch
row at a point 1/6-inch back from the foldback seared end.
Mark the 7 ½-inch webbing length at points 3 and 4-inches from one end.
Form the safety tie loop (2) by doubling the webbing length at the 4-inch mark, allowing one end to
overlap the opposite end by ½-inch.
Position the folded 7 ½-inch webbing length on the 304 ½-inch webbing length with the 3-inch long
end of the folded webbing facedown and the folded end aligned with the 13-inch mark made in step
Beginning at the 3-inch mark, secure the folded webbing length by stitching as outlined in step e.
Insert the arming wire attaching loop on one end of the lanyard through the loop located at the top of
the arming wire.
Pass the opposite end of the lanyard through the arming wire attaching loop and draw the lanyard
length taut to form a tight attaching loop at the top of the arming wire.
