Replacing a Pilot Chute Kill Line

 

 

Use 1000 lb Spectra about 2 - 2 1/2" longer than the old KL.  Finger trap and sew a small loop on one end.

 

Cut off the old KL where it is attached to the PC (leave in bridle) and slip knot the new one onto the same place the old one was.

 

With pilot chute end of the old KL and the other end of the new KL make 2 interlocking loops but do not sew.  Tie the handle to something and using the old line, pull the new one through the bridle.

 

Have some hold or clamp the handle about 2 1/2" from the end of the bridle.  Pull some tension on it and install with a loop on the link or sew depending on how it was made.

 

Cock and mark in the window, then use a magic marker to make the indicator.
