Shoulder straps questions.

Recommended Posts

My shoulder straps snapped and instead of repairing the straps I replaced them (I used the broken straps to make some paste). My replacement straps are too long however, so I trimmed (from the back) 1 big bar and two smaller ones to fit properly after reading some forums about cutting the straps. Was wondering if this is approvable or will I have to buy a new set of straps. Any suggestions on which one to buy? Thanks in advance.

I have a question: Is this correct or is that last line on L3 supposed to be on L1?

Shoulder Straps
For 501st approval:
  • These shall be securely mounted in front and may free float in back. They may be affixed with rivets, Velcro, or adhesive.

 

For level two certification (if applicable):
  • No visible rivets are allowed.
For level three certification (if applicable):
  • These shall free float in back.
  • These shall be glued in front.
  • The plastic shoulder straps need to be held down in the back via a white elastic band to the white fabric that connects/bridges the chest and back piece.
  • The rear tab of the shoulder strap is optional and may or may not be present.

Whoops - fixed.
