NOTE: The most common repair needed to a main deployment is the repair of the closing flap in the
area of the grommets. The grommets work loose and pull out, damaging the material. The tongue
will need reinforcing and new grommets.
1.1 Remove grommets from the tongue of the bag.
1.2 Unpick the binding along the edge of the grommet reinforcing
tape [Figure A].
2.1 Overlay a piece of 1.5" Ty-4 tape on the top of the bag tongue
and sew down [Figure B].
2.2 Punch new holes through the Ty-4 from the back side in the
same location as the original location.
2.3 Overlay the back side of the tongue with a piece of 1.5" Ty-3 tape and sew down [Figure C].
Punch new holes through the tape.
2.4 Sew down the binding tape and rebind as needed [Figure D].
2.5 Set new grommets in the
original locations [Figure
