Ejector Spring. A "boxed" and vented ejector spring (figure 10, item 1) is packed 1/3 of the distance
from the apex to the skirt within the canopy folds. This ensures that upon pack opening, the primary
extractor parachute and the apex of the canopy, with the scoops, are ejected positively and laterally into
the airflow. The extractor parachute and the scoops inflate immediately to extract the S folded canopy
from the container to present the canopy into the airflow.

Ripcord Handle. The T-11R ripcord handle (figure 11, item 1) is designed as a multi directional pull and
centrally mounted soft handle.
Figure 11. Ripcord Handle (Handle Side).
The handle design incorporates a soft toggle type handle. This minimizes the snagging hazard, permitting
suspension lines to run freely over the handle without removing it from its stowage. The tuck tab design
regulates the pull force required to remove the handle from the stowage.
