UPT has released a video demonstrating the lubricating procedure outlined in the service bulletin, to ensure the reserve ripcord glides smoothly. This procedure should be performed before the next jump and monthly thereafter until a replacement ripcord has been installed. This can be done by the rig owner or a rigger. The reserve does not need to be opened.
