Incorrect parachute cable installation

Recommended Posts

Just a quick FYI,


I am still seeing the BRS parachute cables improperly installed by mechanics. Please make sure your's does it right. You will see in the pictures that this mechanic put the screw through the cable eye and then screwed it in place to the firing pin. This may still fire, but it is wrong and could slip off and mashes the cable.

The firing pin is grooved in the middle and the cable goes up into the groove in the center. Then the screw goes in through the outside of the firing pin through the cable eye and screws into the backside of the firing pin. The cable is never mashed by the screw.
