2. Damage Extending Into Radial Seams. Repair as follows:
a. Cut the stitching of the suspension lines, V-tabs, and pocket bands at the damaged radial seam on
each side of the damaged area. Move these items to one side.
b. Invert the canopy and smooth the canopy around the damaged area.
c. Cut a piece of 1-inch, tubular nylon tape, long enough to extend 6-inches beyond the outside edge
of the radial seam on each side of the damaged area. Sear or dip the ends of the webbing.
