3. Tie the ends of the webbing (figure 41, item 1) over the static line buffer loop (figure 41, item 2)
using a surgeon's knot and a locking knot. Allow for a 3-inch loop between the bridle loop and static
line buffer loop. Cut off excess webbing, leaving approximately 2 inches long.

4. Rigger check number 3.
STOWING THE CANOPY
1. Release tension and unhook the bridle loop from the apex hook. Hold the deployment bag (figure 42,
item 1) open with the right hand and grasp the canopy (figure 42, item 2) near the apex. Place the
apex of the canopy into the upper right corner of the deployment bag.
2. Grasp a section of the canopy approximately the width of the deployment bag with the left hand and
place the second fold in the upper left corner.
Figure 42. Stowing the Canopy.
3. Continue folding the canopy in alternating sides of the deployment bag until the lower lateral band
and anti-inversion net (figure 43, item 1) are reached.
