Failure to attach the retaining line to the parachute
harness could result in separation from life raft/survival
components when the RSSK lid assembly is released.
After the raft retaining line is secured to the parachute
harness release both lap belt fittings. This will release the RSSK lid.
Do not board the raft with the lid attached to your
backside. Boarding the raft with the lid attached can
puncture the raft inflation cell or cut the floor material.
Locate the small end of the raft for boarding.
Unhook the life preserver velcro tabs, reposition the cells
to the sides of your body, grasp the boarding handles (attached on
either side of the raft inflation cell) and pull yourself into the raft.
