What do you check the suspension webbing straps for?
Inspect the suspension webbing straps. There should be 4. Each strap has a rated capacity of 2,200 lbs. There are two types of straps. They are cotton and nylon. You will never mix the two types of straps. You can identify a cotton strap by its off white color and the red stitching. The nylon strap is OD green in color and is half the thickness of a cotton strap. Inspect the straps for frays, cuts, or stains. Check for loose or broken stitches using the stitch rule. Inspect all metal portions for rust, cracks, dents, nicks, or burns.
