Branch Lines. Branch lines (detonating cord) are laid from the ring main to the items to be
destroyed. The branch lines should be positioned so that the angle formed when they are
connected to the ring main will be 90 degrees (a right angle). When connecting branch lines to
the ring main, never connect at a point where the ring main has been spliced. Connect branch
lines to the ring main as follows:
Connect using the M1 detonating cord clip. See Figure 46.
Connect using the detonating cord connector. See Figure 47.
Connect using a girth hitch with one extra turn. See Figure 48.
