FOLDING THE GORES
1. Move to the apex end of the table. Grasp the upper lateral band (figure 18, item 1) on both sides with
your fingers through the apex vent lines (figure 18, item 2). Apply pressure toward the tension end
of the table until the upper lateral band is aligned.
2. Move to the tension end of the table and apply first tension on the parachute until the suspension
lines are taut and rise off the table.
3. Move to the lower lateral band of the canopy with the right group of lines (figure 18, item 3) in the left
hand. Lift right group suspension lines with the left hand at the anti inversion net (figure 18, item 4).
Hold top center gores in position with the right hand, and flip right group of gores (figure 18, item 5)
over the left group (figure 18, item 6).
