Last September (2014) we published a post following an incident where a pin pierced a bridle, resulting in a container lock. Happy ending spoiler alert: everyone was fine. This did prompt quite a bit of a discussion about container closing sequences along with where and how to route the bridle connecting the throw-out pilot chute. The container in question was a Sun Path Javelin. Sun Path has created a handy-dandy document for you Javelin owners that wish to change the routing.
