INITIAL CHUTE PREPARATION|
Measure each shroud line and make a mark at the midpoint. Loosely tie the shroud lines at the end into a simple overhand knot, making sure the marks you made stay together.
|Holding the shroud lines at the midpoint marks to make sure they stay together, pull the knot tight, leaving a small loop at the end of the tied lines.|
PREPARATION FOR FLIGHT|
Fold the chute panel-over-panel as shown, then lay the shroud lines on the folded chute leaving the knot and loop just below the chute.
|Now fold the chute in half twice over the shroud lines, capturing them inside the chute.|
|Fold the top third of the chute over lengthwise...||...then fold it lengthwise again.|
|Attach the chute to the shock cord, kwik-link, or other attachment point on the rocket at the loop.||Load the shock cord into the airframe, then push in the chute bundle shroud line end first, just far enough to allow easy installation of the nosecone or payload section.|
