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.
If bartack stitching requires repair, bartacks will be completely removed and a new bartack will be
replaced with the same stitch length and width.
Replacement of load bearing vent bridle loops (green) is
prohibited. Only non-load bearing (white) vent bridle loops are
authorized for replacement. Failure to heed this warning may
result in serious injury or death to personnel.
