points in the canopy to the junction with the lower (red) control line and down to the toggle. There
should be no twists, entanglements or knots.
2. Locate the damaged lower control line and remove the toggle.
3. Take a new lower control line and girth hitch the preformed end to the junction of the two middle
control lines and the damaged lower control line.
4. Run the new lower control line down the center of the suspension lines, ensuring that it remains free
5. Repeat for second line.
