Line Dump

Line dump occurs when the line stows are short enough and loose enough to allow the lines to drop from the bag during the snatch of the bag lifting off your back. This may cause bad openings or increase the chances of malfunctions due to out of sequence line deployment. In the worst case the locking stows may dump or more commonly break and dump the canopy from the bag before line stretch. To reduce the chances of this happening keep a good eye on your stows and replace any worn stows as well as keeping your stows tight and line bites a good size.
