INSPECTION OF INSTALLED ITEMS
Check fabric. Weak or torn areas may be repaired by a cement patch or machined patch. All material used to repair the
cover must be the same as the original material.
Check tensile strength of fabric. Grasp a small fold of fabric between thumb and forefinger of each hand, gripping it
closely so tips of forefingers touch. Tug material several times. If it does not rip, it is repairable. If it tears on first tug,
test several areas for extend of damage. Weak sections must be replaced.
Check for spots and stains. Non-wear spots and stains are all right if fabric has been brushed clean. Repair fabric where
fabric strength has been weakened by mildew, sap, or dirt stains.
Check fabric. Repair opened seams, runoff stitching, and broken threads. Restitch worn stitching.
Check webbing straps. Repair or replace worn, frayed, or torn straps.
Check buckles. Replace buckles that are bent, broken, or missing.
Check for slide fasteners (zippers). Replace zippers that are rusted or do not work correctly.
