Product QuestionsQuestion by: Franklin on Mar 4, 2019 9:29:00 AMThe shoulder knots do not have to be sewn on.
The button will twist off of the knot like a screw. This will make it possible to slide the leather strap on the underside of the knot into the loops already sewn into your jacket. You will insert the strap button side first toward the neck of your jacket, and screw the button back in.Answer by: Leah Cook (Admin) on Mar 4, 2019 12:01:00 PMIf they were marked I wouldn't have asked. Still need to know which goes on what side. I bought these from you years ago.
Which knot goes on the left and right sides? Can't find in DA Pam 670-1.

If you look under the flap that passes through the shoulder loops, the knots are labeled "LEFT" and "RIGHT".

Question by: LTC Santose on May 2, 2018 1:42:00 PMThe button side of the knot needs to be facing inward, towards the collar of the jacket. Positioning the knot to where the loop of the braid is passing under the front of the button. So that the button is easy to see from a person standing in front of you.
The knot is on the wrong side of the loop if the braid passes above the button, obstructing the view of the button of someone standing in front of you.Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on May 3, 2018 7:07:00 AM
