Stitch removal requirements will vary according to the type of item being repaired. Due to
the unique type of stitch formations found on the T-11R, use of a stitch removal tool is
mandated when removing Bartack, Box X, or Double Box X stitch formations.
Parachute mending cloth IS NOT AUTHORIZED on the reserve parachute.
If bartack stitching requires repair, bartacks will be completely removed and a new bartack will be
replaced with the same stitch length and width.
