Cutaway cables cleaning
It is important to properly maintain your cutaway cables in order to ensure smooth and easy extraction in emergency situations. One common cause of dirty and sticky cables is the use of silicon spray as a lubricant. This petroleum-based product can attract dust and dirt, which can then stick to the cables and cause problems with the smooth operation of the cutaway handle. Instead, it is recommended to clean your cutaway cables with a solvent such as methylated spirits, which can help to remove any dirt or debris without leaving behind any residue. It is also a good idea to regularly inspect your cutaway cables for any damage or wear, and replace them if necessary to ensure the highest level of safety during parachute use.
